While visiting in Kittery, we stopped in for an early evening meal. My husband had a great burger, angus beef, said it was one of the best he's had in in a while. I had the mac and lobster, the lobster was a little chewy but mac was nice and creamy. I ordered the 1/2 portion which was ample and... More

Laid back locals, regional fare, and a decent beer selection set this pub apart. I went here twice, once dinner and once lunch - both times it was an enjoyable experience.

We came here for a drink before going to the Kittery Dance Hall. The place was crowded but not frantic on a Saturday nite at 7-ish. The crowd seemed friendly and the staff was very friendly. Even though it was crowded, we found a table. Our drinks came promptly and were quite delicious.

The food is good and the service is friendly. Our burgers were very good. I had the one topped with pulled pork and enjoyed the curly fries. It is a very small place with cocktail-height tables, two large TV screens, and a long bar. We'll be back to try some more pulled pork.

Friendly bar with good range of beers and cocktails. Favoured haunt of Boat crews from nearby Naval dockyard. Excellent pub grub, including variety of house specials. Fish and chips excellent. Not sophisticated or expensive but good fun and welcoming. Parking quite restricted before 6pm

My burger was dry. The curly fries were good and my wife's house made chips were thick , but good. Her chicken (dark meat) was cooked perfectly, but the white meat was dry. Lots of beers, locals, on tap. Wine, which we drink, was unusual and not cheap. Cheapest glass was 7 bucks. Great large screen hi-def TV's and we... More
