Very popular with the under 30s and older pub crawlers

Always busy, classic pub holds a nice place in Maine. Food is nothing special, decor is noting special. Staff varies, nothing special. The beer offerings are special. A nice piece of Freeport.

Went here for lunch. very informal bar/pub type atmosphere. Food is good pub food. Plenty of there own brews on tap. In the summer you can go sit on the deck but not great views. The staff is friendly the service is good. If it is crowded you can sometimes feel as though you are sitting in each others laps.... More

Great pub atmosphere. Good place to watch sports. Nice outdoor area in summer. Good for families. Can be noisy and hard to hold a conversation when there is live music, but you can sit further away from the performer. Great homemade chips! By the way, the picture here is not the Gritty's in Freeport, this is in Auburn.

We've been to Gritty's at least 3 times in the last two years. It's convenient for us and fine for a casual bite after shopping or on the way home from events in Portland. The food is average, not bad, just nothing special. The Mac and Cheese is the disappointment here, tasteless, but everything else (in our case: Lamb burger,... More

Great location and good food, nice portion sizes and I enjoy the live music on weekends. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for the food if they are busy but the servers are friendly and accommodating which makes it worth the wait. Pricing is reasonable if you stick with the menu when you start to add on the extras... More

Pub style food. Family friendly and always decent food. The beer is crafted on property, thus its good.

We had a great meal here! Food was fresh, beer was cold and the service was great. Loved the relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely come back again when in the area. Their beer was great too, loved the IPA

Love coming here in the summer and fall as the kids can play outside in the amazing back yard filled with toys, playhouse and a swing set, all while you wait on the big deck enjoying your cold beer or drink.

My family and I went to Gritty's for New Year's Eve. I had the Monster Mash ESB and a Red Claws, my wife had the IPA. Excellent beer, food is mediocre bar food. The beer and atmosphere is worth the trip.
