We love the Portland Gritty's and are often there. This was our first visit to the Freeport location. Seems to be a larger space and may have less "pub" atmosphere as in Portland. The service was good enough, and then menu similar to Portland. We...More

Stopped in there for lunch on a whim. Great seafood, reasonable lunch menu in terms of pricing. Service was friendly, looks like a typical enlarged rustic seafood restaurant. Easy parking and everything seemed fresh and nicely seasoned. Would recommend it to travelers

Have been to Freeport many times, but never ate here. Wanted a quick lunch of pub type fare. I had the Shepherd's pie, which was pretty bland, but my wife had the Portobello Quesadillas which were excellent! Good salads and drinks. Lots to choose from....More

This is a favorite haunt for after-rehearsal theater folk. A kitchen that's open late, and really good local beer is a great inducement. The waitstaff is friendly, helpful, and hard-working. That said, there are two rooms plus outside in good weather, and sometimes, LOTS of...More

Since they added outdoor seating, it's gotten better but everything is communal seating. If it's just the two of you, this will not be romantic. The food is average. Nothing to write home about. We had the fried calamari — nothing great. It's pub food...More

Stopped by with the family and we really liked the outdoor deck seating . Enjoyed the beer choices but burgers were way overdone and bland. The fish and chips were fresh but the lobster roll was small and the roll was mushy. Service was great...More

Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-six years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.
