  • Local craft beer and the cheese curd and loaded sweet potato fries were very good. Beer was excellent, if you're into craft beer I highly recommend stopping here.  more »
  • We ran across a local at another place, and he had just come from Gritty's. We went over but didn't have great expectations when just looking at it. Secured a table on the main level and ordered...  more »
  • Gritty's was on our Foodie tour. The lobster roll and craft beers were delicious. If we'd had more time, we would have gone back.  more »

  • Marvellous evening. Great food, fantastic bar tender, live music by a guy Travis and a live ice hockey game on TV. What more could a family visiting from Scotland ask for??!! (And they had real Scottish Ale too!) πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ΄σ §σ ’σ ³σ £σ ΄σ Ώ
  • It was a good time with great entertainment. Only reason why I am taking a star away is the bartender (woman) was pretty rude. We got a male bartender after and he was great. I do think the woman was either at end of shift or about to start her break so maybe thats why but gave us a not great feel for the place.
  • Had a great experience at Gritty McDuffs pub in Portland, Maine. It is located on a great Street in a wonderful area downtown. Plenty of places to check out and Gritty McDuffs is a great choice. A nice wood bar with full service as well as several seating options. There are very nice views that look out towards the harbor and an interesting alley behind the pub. The burger and fries are phenomenal and a classic beer selection make this a great option for pub food.
  • Food was not great. Paid $16 for a shepherds pie, it was so bad I couldn't eat it. Staff was nice, beer was good!
  • Great food, poor service. Worth stopping by for the lobster poutine (not sure if they still have it). It was packed and the servers didn't have much time to give us good service. Perhaps they can hire more help so visitors don't feel like they are a burden. That being said, I still like Gritty's more than most of the more touristy spots.
