Gritty McDuff's is situated on the outskirts of the Freeport, ME shoppign center, just south of the big LL Bean. THe atmosphere is a little different. instead of having single party tables, thay have very long picnic type tables that seat 2-3 parties at once. unique and interesting. unless youre an introvert, it forces you at ties to talk to others which is nice.

i didnt get a chance to try anything off tap this time, but i took some home and was impressed. i cant wait for the autumn to try their Halloween ale.

the food was amazing. i am a huge fan of pub meatloaf and theirs was phenomenal. Their selection wasnt to varied, at least for the lunch menu.

Dollar wise it was pretty standard for a brewpub. Well worth the trip.

Kinda touristy but in a good way. With LL Bean being the big draw there is certainly no shortage of people in Freeport and the pressure to get people to your establishment has to be scary, but Gritty's does well. And for a good reason. Good food, great service, and some decent beers. I stop there just about every time I'm in Freeport.

The atmosphere reminds me of a ski lodge. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Even when the place was packed. Friendly to the kids also.

sister restaurant of the Portland based grittys, a fun place to visit, but the food is a lot better than the beer. I worked my way through the whole lineup, but was unimpressed by any of them, even finding the ipa to be quite poor. the lobster rolls and lobster mac and cheese were right on though, as was the rhubarb dessert. maybe six or seven beers on, in an open seating loud beer hall type setting. big back deck and yard, and one of those places where you sit with strangers, which is cool if you are traveling. service was decent considering how busy it was, and again, the food was very good. not really a beer destination though, I found them all to be generic and weak in some ways, undercarbonated, and similar in a bad way. the fermenters were neat though, insulated with brick, never seen that before. overall a good stop for a meal on the maine brewery trip, but the beers were less than stellar, and that's the most important thing.

Stopped here for lunch the other day. Beer selection was OK, as they have the standard Gritty’s fare. The beers are good, with a fairly varied selection. the food was fairly standard pub offerings. It was tasty and was served quickly. The service was also good. Well worth a stop when in the area.
