We stopped in for a late lunch, and thus missed the rush. The service was prompt and efficient, though our waitress might have been new, as she was not too familiar with their menu. Despite this, the service was good, the food was good as...More

Service friendly but food was very slow coming out and very ordinary. I had the lobster French bread which was a small thin pizza with a little lobster sprinkled on it. The fish and chips was tasteless.

Description
Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-six years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.
