Laid back locals, regional fare, and a decent beer selection set this pub apart. I went here twice, once dinner and once lunch - both times it was an enjoyable experience.

We came here for a drink before going to the Kittery Dance Hall. The place was crowded but not frantic on a Saturday nite at 7-ish. The crowd seemed friendly and the staff was very friendly. Even though it was crowded, we found a table. Our drinks came promptly and were quite delicious.

Stopped in for a business meeting, was a very noisy place hard to conduct business. When the food came I was impressed, try the porky pig sandwich, great meal !!

The food is good and the service is friendly. Our burgers were very good. I had the one topped with pulled pork and enjoyed the curly fries. It is a very small place with cocktail-height tables, two large TV screens, and a long bar. We'll be back to try some more pulled pork.

Friendly bar with good range of beers and cocktails. Favoured haunt of Boat crews from nearby Naval dockyard. Excellent pub grub, including variety of house specials. Fish and chips excellent. Not sophisticated or expensive but good fun and welcoming. Parking quite restricted before 6pm

My burger was dry. The curly fries were good and my wife's house made chips were thick , but good. Her chicken (dark meat) was cooked perfectly, but the white meat was dry. Lots of beers, locals, on tap. Wine, which we drink, was unusual and not cheap. Cheapest glass was 7 bucks. Great large screen hi-def TV's and we... More

We were staying in the Kittery Foreside area and walked here for dinner one evening. We were warmly greeted as was every one who walked through the door. The clientele seems to be a mix of local people, Navy yard employee and tourists. It's not very big inside but on a Wednesday night off season we had no trouble getting... More

– I stopped in for a bite to eat on my way up North…I had never been to this part of Kittery before, nor to this establishment. It seemed like a pretty fun little bar/grill though! The service was pretty good and the staff and patrons were friendly. The prices were pretty reasonable and the atmosphere was pretty much standard... More
