Frye's Leap IPA has, for whatever reason, a special place on my palate. Love that beer on tap, so when the lines at Eventide and Duck Fat spilled onto the sidewalk I kept on walking, turned left and then strolled into Sebago.

Clean, spacious building with tables, bar, booths and outdoor seating along the sidewalk. Good taplist with, you got it, Frye's and many other brews on tap. Ordered some hummus/tzatziki and bree and lobster flatbread. Quick service and the food was good. Didn't stick around for long but had a nice, easy vibe to it. One of those "there when you need it" type of place that won't let you down.

Located in a hotel, this has a typical hotel bar feel. Low lighting, lots of tables. Brew pub. A large selection of just ok beer.

Stopped in here for a late dinner on a weeknight when little else was still open. In a lot of ways it reminded me of eating at a "brewpub" location in an airport. At least part of this was due to its location in a hotel lobby, but it was also due to a somewhat sterile atmosphere, not particularly beer savvy staff, and disappointing beer selection and quality.

The only aspect where they didn't fit into that mold was the food, which ended up being the high point of the visit. The food was genuinely pretty good, I had a salmon and soba dish that was well prepared and enjoyable. Unfortunately that is more than I can say for the beer. Not being from the area we didn't really know what to expect, but the beers were mediocre to bad and mostly very uninspired. Add to this that they were out of at least three of the maybe 8 beers they had on the menu and it made for a quite underwhelming experience. Not someplace I would recommend for the beer or for a stop overall, but if you were staying in the hotel and were hungry the food was pretty good.

Excellent vibe, felt comfortable bringing the whole family. Nice selection of beers, could have been bigger. The service was very good and friendly. The food was fair priced and very good. I recomend this and will definetly be back.

My wife and I stopped in here for a drink during our 5-year Anniversary trip to Portland. The beers that we tried weren't particularly good. My wife's beer was downright awful. The smell and taste made me nearly gag. The bar looked nice. The setup was kind of basic and simple and it seemed to be more about the food, restaurant than the beer. we drank about 3/4 of our pints and then left. One and done.
