We have eaten at a number of other places in Freeport, but always seem to come back to Gritty's. It is a brew pup, and has tables and benches (plus a bar area). You may be asked to share a table if it is busy....More

Go out of our way to eat here when we are in Maine. It's just down the street from LL Bean. It's seacoast atmosphere, beer and food are worth it. We always have the twin lobster rolls with plenty to share. Even the fries are...More

Gritty's is a year round establishment in Freeport where local crowds gather in winter when the crowds are small and the waitstaff and kitchen arein't stressed. Our recent lunch found their beers to be spot on, as consistency in their brewing regiment is very good,...More

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.
