Great food, great service, great drinks. The fried calamari is so light and savory to start out your meal, and the fish and chips will rock your world.

An old-style bar and grill which provides seating out on the street or within where you can enjoy the art work (for sale) and much of the decorations. Staff are tremendously friendly. They have Guinness on tap and delicious cocktails, beers and wines. The local haddock fish & chips was huge, delicate and moist on the inside with a wonderful crispy outside. Home-made chips were great! Really reasonable prices. Highest recommendations!

Found this place while walking from our airbnb. It has a nice neighborhood feel with plenty of locals. Bartender was a super nice guy and lots of fun. They pour drinks out of handles in Portland. Fun fact. Had a great pasta dish and my wife had a very nice chicken salad.

After a long day of traveling, we wanted to find a spot to get out of the hotel for low key dinner. Saw some good reviews, so jumped in an uber and landed here. We opted to sit at the bar, and ordered dinner and some drinks. Bartender was super friendly.

This is definitely more of a local hang-out/dive bar type scene, but the food was surprisingly really good and exactly what we were looking for and the prices were amazing!

Looking for a place to eat along Congress St. we are pleased to have found this restaurant. The food was excellent. I got their special blackened haddock which was prepared to perfection. My wife enjoyed her black bean soup and veggie burger. Aidan H our server did a great job waiting on us. Great place to eat.
