The Braised Lamb Shank was just perfect.. so meaty and flavorful and the accompanying orzo though it sounded plain was perfectly seasoned and a wonderful accompaniment. My dining partners had the pork loin. They both mentioned that while their dishes were good the pork was a little overdone. Future customers might mention that to their server when ordering.

We were looking for relaxing pub fare and their new fall menu is a step above. The Fall Mussels with apple cider broth were delicious. My wife had the lamb shank and it was awesome. I had the shepherd's pie with a sweet potato mash that very tasty and cooked perfectly.

This cozy pub on route 302 in Naples has atmosphere, friendly service, and great food. The shepherd's pie is outstanding. Heaping platter of calamari with tangy banana peppers is perfect with a glass of Smithwicks. Haddock is fresh and tasty. Enjoyed some fun local musicians one night--just like pub experiences we had in Ireland! Closed Tuesdays, but we went back... More

Given that bears became extinct in Ireland about a thousand years ago, this is a curious name for an Irish pub. That aside, it's a great spot for food, drink and music. During the high season they have music nightly, mostly at least Irish-influenced. The night we were there Jud Caswell performed on guitar, banjo, cittern (a cool, funky 5... More

The early bird special are the best. The Haddock is to die for. The pizzas are also very good. Nice choices, not the normal every day run of the mill food. Great ambiance, Good selection of Beers, Irish and domestic.

Excellent spot for a good pint, live music and great food. What more do you need. Been here many times over the past few years, pub pizzas are great, the chowder is excellent. A good pint of Guinness outside of Ireland is hard to come by, they have a great pint of the black stuff here.

We were second to arrive at this restaurant, and hadn't booked. We were told they could fit us, so yes at down, placed our order for a starter and main dish. Unbeknown to us they had taken a larger booking and had messed up on numbers, so part way through out main course they started moving tables around. We courtesy... More

Burgers, wings, pizza. Friendly and clean. Good renditions and very fair pricing. Kitschy and fun decor. We really enjoyed it and it was better than campfire grill in bridgton. We will return, esp for the buffalo chicken which was spicy goodness! Warning, they unfortunately broadcast Red Sox games and have a huge cut out if sobs horrible sox player. Otherwise... More

Used Trip Advisor to find a spot to eat between Bridgton and Westbrook Maine, and this spot was well reviewed, so we tried it. What a great find! It's small, but has outdoor seating too. The staff was friendly. The decor was nice-tin ceilings, big bar,cork menus and faux-leather table tops, with a heavy Guinness theme to the artwork, etc.... More
