Visited around 8pm on a second trip to Wharf Street. Had previously been disappointed by Gritty's and wanted to sample the extensive range of drafts on offer. When we walked in there were two others at the bar, half an hour later there were at...least twelve others and people seated outside. The one barman was attentive to everyones needs and had time to explain their offering - a great asset to the business. I had a couple of draft IPA's and accompanied them with shrimp tacos - I'd describe them as being "gumbo" in a soft tortilla. Three for $12 and they were excellent.More

Wow we visited this place on a food tour and great selection of beer but more importanly they had the best lobster rolls we tasted. I would go back again just for their lobster rolls and great selection of local beers

Came to visit a friend I haven’t seen in a few years. We went to a few craft breweries and had a fantastic time and experience at all of them. Decided to head out for a late night drink and a small bite to eat....Have to say the selection of beer was phenomenal. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Huge shout out to Forest genuinely wanted to chat and was extremely knowledgeable about the beer. I would highly recommend and would definitely come again.More

Got the tacos -- pork and chicken -- and they were good. Despite this place being called the Mash Tun, we had cocktails instead of beer, and those were also very good. Eating outside, perched on stools, was a little wobbly on the cobblestones. Indoor...seating area looks dark & cozy, but it wasn't open at the time, thanks to the pandemic.More

We love it here! A friend told us to try it, and so glad we did! We had the tacos- one of each kind they offered. Delicious and affordable. (And they have corn tortillas for the GF people like myself) Amazing craft beer selections. PS:...zack the bartender was our favorite. He needs a raise because he’s great. Can’t wait until our next trip to Portland, just so we can come back to Mash TunMore

There are so many restaurants that are closed in Portland. We attempted to have dinner at our go to, Gritty’s but, there was no availability. We saw the Portland Mash Tun and went in. There were dividers at the bar for social distancing. We ordered...a drink a looked at the menu. There was a handful of items on it. My husband and I shared a burger and fries. It filled the void and nothing more. Not a place for me.More

We came for dinner this past Friday on a recommendation from our hotel and were very pleased. I had the basic burger which was very good and my spouse had the "beyond burger" which was also very good. Really good variety of beers and a...fairly decent variety of whiskey's (would have liked to see more Irish whiskey's though). Service was very good and our server very knowledgable about the menu. He suggested a few gluten free options which was very helpful as my spouse has celiacs. Would definitely come back!More

This place is a gem! The staff is absolutely amazing, I would recommend just asking them for their recs rather than choosing from the huge tap menu. Curtis never steered us wrong! All the beers on rotation are amazing, and the food was quick yet...incredible. Would definitely come back for the drinks, food, and company!More

Cool little place to stop in for great drinks. Curtis was great and gave us a lot of history and knowledge of beers. Patrons were all happy and friendly as well. We did t eat here but what other had while we were there looked...good. Watch your step going in, it could be a doosy.More

This place was so good. Small, warm, welcoming and had a great drink selection. My husband ordered a burger and I ended up eating half of his. Along with truffle fries. I'd go back tomorrow. We loved it.
