“Great chicken wings, friendly staff”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

We travelled to Brunswick for one night and just wanted something pretty casual to eat, bonus that here we could eat and get to watch the Red Sox game. Chicken wings were delicious so were the fries. Disappointed to not get a lobster roll but weather and season had been bad so not their fault! Staff were helpful and made us feel really welcome.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

This place has a wonderful atmosphere! The tvs are placed perfectly so I can see from any angle and with different selections so I can keep up with multiple games! The wings are absolutely the best, hands down! Pizza was to die for go for the blindside (a BBQ chicken pizza with corn bacon, and caramelized onions). Great beer selection with many local beer flavors on tap. We had the huge beer tower with 100 ounces of beer and it sits right at your table, so cool! Staff was so cheerful and friendly!

“What I was looking for”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Game 5, Bruins/Rangers, and I'm up in Brunswick without the crazy channel (NBCSports? CNBC?) available for a hockey game (apparently Hockey is not a mainstream sport, but watching a bunch of hyper-thyroid cases take four steps without dribbling is).

Place was mobbed (duh, hockey in Maine; bizarre cable channel), with a mix of twenties to geezers like myself. By a miracle, I was able to score a seat at the bar, and they have a nice beer selection as well as the usual ones for those who want to drink something cold with bubbles and alcohol. Lots of strategically placed TVs, and nice-sized portions of good-smelling bar food. I had been told to come home with wings or not at all; for some reason they are not on the menu, but available in many variations- they may want to update their menu (and correct a couple dozen spelling errors, but it's a sports bar, not a literary coffeehouse, so no harm no foul).

Wings were really good, and watched the rest of the game with the wife and her posse streaming on a 14" monitor- a little disappointing after 50" flat screens, but witty banter made up for some of it.

Would go again under similar circumstances.
