Gritty McDuffs is a great casual place to dine in Portland. It has a great selection of beers and siders. Food is delicious. I had the surf and turf burger. It was one of the best lobster related dishes I had while in Portland!

We visited Gritty's for lunch after a schooner tour. The food was awesome. We had wings, lobster roll, chowder, and fried fish. Atmosphere and service were great. Sweet potato fries and onion rings were also worth the extra cost. Worth the stop on the beer...More

This is a really cool and local brewery. We really enjoyed the beer, which they brew just downstairs from the main bar. We ate a small lunch, which was also very good. We highly encourage stopping in if you're in Portland!

In Portland for a few days on our way to Bar Harbor. I have been to Gritty's many times over the years. It is a brew pub that only serves their own beer so don't ask for a "Ship Yard". Nice atmosphere inside or out....More

This place is right in the heart of downtown Portland and worth a stop for a decent. The beer list is a basic list of common styles but nothing to crazy or progressive. They do the basic styles good but not great. But a beautiful...More

My husband and I had lunch here after the Downeast Duck Tour. The lobster roll had a great flavor but not much lobster on it. The clam chowder was very good. Lots of clams, much better than Gilbert's. Loved the Pixie Dust on the fries!...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-five 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.
