We were here for a friend's band, so we were in the basement area on a Saturday night. We just had drinks as we did not get there till about 8pm.

Easy parking, great service. Lots of beers to choose from. Dinner menu has many very nice dishes, everyone in our party very happy with their choices. Portions are generous, so we didn't have room for dessert.

I love the Grog because it's exactly what it should be - a comfortable, historical tavern with good beer and above average food. You can easily imagine patrons sitting around this same nautical bar 200 years ago swapping stories and enjoying a drink or two....More

Living in town for many years, the Grog is a staple. Always a go-to consistent and great hometown pub. The lobster bisque is the best ever. Great $1 oysters and beers on tap.

I like the Grog for the wide range of items in the menus. It’s a good bar and a good restaurant. If you want a little less activity jut go upstairs and eat there.

Has the feel of where the crew from the lastest ship (the 1800's) that docked on the river came to drink & eat. A pure tavern atmosphere that serves reasonably priced entres. The clam chowder is renowned for its taste and the completely different construction...More

All of our group enjoyed their meals and drinks- the spinach and artichoke dip to start was a particular hit! The night we went, they were busy and the service was quite slow but the food and reasonably priced bill made up for it.
