Kind of dead on Friday night in Late September. Looks like a local version of a chain restaurant that is need of some upkeep. They had 8-9 beers on tap and 2 on cask. I wasn’t a big fan of their previous beers and the one I had last night did not change my opinion. At least it wasn’t terribly expensive. I’d only go here if nothing else is open nearby.
Drove near here so I thought I’d stop in. Kind of drab and boring inside, and spread out so even though there was a bit of a crowd it seemed dead. Service was OK. A couple of beers on that were not at the other location I visited, one of which was the best Gritty’s I’ve had. Cheap prices on beer. Did not try the food here.
A comfortable place with great possibilities....the service was adequate, but the food lacked flavor.....no simply tons of salt flavor, but as if things were frozen.....the calamari had little to no taste yet looked impressive. The beer seems to share common yeast and many taste very similar....I was just expecting much more.....average, little more at the moment.
Reviewed from notes.
Been here a couple of times, when I lived in Yarmouth, ME (practically in my backyard back there). Anyways, its always a clean place to go and always packed if that says anything. Despite the fact that its always packed, I would say the service is still always good. The food is actually probably better than their beers. I almost always had the Lobster mac & cheese. Absolutely stellar, mmmmmm....Kinda makes me miss Maine a bit.
Blah. See my review of the Portland location minus the fun bar atmosphere. Food is pub fare, beers aren’t good. Outdoor seating is pretty ugly for Maine. Freeport isn’t brewpub/beer restaurant Mecca, but this doesn’t help much.
Stopped here for lunch the other day. Beer selection was OK, as they have the standard Gritty’s fare. The beers are good, with a fairly varied selection. the food was fairly standard pub offerings. It was tasty and was served quickly. The service was also good. Well worth a stop when in the area.
Standard order brewpub with a tap line that runs through standard styles and a seasonal or two. Always a cask ale on tap. The food is pub cuisine with house beers worked into a few dishes. I used to eat at Gritty’s a couple times a year and I always liked the fried potato chips (really rounds of soft fried potato), the fish n chips, and the stout and cheddar soup. Nothing special but good straight forward fare.
I like this place a little better than the one in Portland. It’s not quite as consistently mobbed like the other location. I’m still not a fan of Gritty’s beer, but the food is good, and the service seems to be pretty solid. I frequently stop in after work and grab a quick bite. The Black Fly Stout isn’t bad.
