We eat here about 20 - 30 times a year. Varied menu ,fair priced and good servings. Specials every night. They have nice dinner pizza's and burger to seafood. Limited waitress staff so they get to know you . No waiting as they all help each other. Really enjoy them as well. Live music some nights... read more

This building is very beautiful with an old fashioned look. The bar in particular is like a stop back in time. You enter from the right rear which is a little confusing. The patio is nice enough when the weather cooperated-though you are looking at a main road. Food is nothing special (pub food) but the servers are very nice.

We have dined here many times, and it's always a good choice. The food is fresh and well presented. Courteous staff and friendly. The restaurant is attractive and decor is "local," they are not trying to be something they aren't. A favorite place for us!

Great wine and beer. But unfortunately the food was terrible. My mom ordered the scallop special which was made with bow tie pasta. The presentation looked poor, couldn't find the 4 scallops because they were underneath the broccoli and pasta. The pasta itself was over cooked and mushy. I had the Delmonico steak which said that it came with a... More

Last night my family and I went out to dinner here for a birthday get together. There had been confusion with our reservation and when we got there were told that they could only set us up for 12. We eventually got the setup for 20 and from there on out the meal got worse. Our server, Becky, was short... More

New menu as of Dec. 3rd. Some good changes and some old meals missed. Had the best dinner there the 4th we have had for a long time. Eat there at least twice a month.

A return trip to this impressive old building brought me and and my friend a yummy lunch off of their menu which is much more extensive than the term "pub food" implies. I had mussels and they were local and delicious. Extensive beer list is a plus also. While others might disagree I prefer this restaurant to King Eider's Pub... More

For the last year and as recent as Oct. 16th 2014, we have eaten here a lot. Many specials every night, great menu of regulars that changes some. Back on now is our favorite Shepards pie made with lamb shank!!! But if they served cardboard, the wait staff would make it great. So lucky to have the staff they have... More

We visited last weekend for the first time and were lucky enough to sit at the bar. The locals were extremely friendly and cordial. We chowed down on Damariscotta Oysters (the best!), onion rings and pizza. Ethan, the bartender took great care of us! We will definitely return the next time we are in Newcastle.
