This place was a real find and a pleasant stop while checking out Maine. It is located about two blocks from another brewpub (Gritty McDuff's) and about a quarter mile from The Shipyard brewery. It's an upscale rest. with a nice bar attached. Table seating dominates the place, but the bar is where I was.

The service was outstanding. The people went out of their way to make me feel welcome. The beer was also good. They had about eight house drafts to sample, which were all above average quality (the stout was the best).

The atmosphere screamed of class, which was welcome after touring a bunch of college party pubs the day before. They offered a wide variety of native dishes and some for the common person as well. They had lots of lobster dishes to offer so of course being from NY I had to indulge. The food was awesome.

I rather enjoyed this place and would return anytime while staying in the Portland area.

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.

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.

Very relaxed vibe, atmospheric lighting, excellent selection of sebago beers as well as some guests. I've yet to try the food but the beer I tried was delicious. And the $3/22 ounce draft special on Wednesday night was a great deal.
