Happening place!

Great brewery restaurant in an old mill building across the river from Brunswick. Very busy but the wait for a table is worth it. Dark beer is outstanding. Salad was good but a bit overflowing with dressing. Jambalaya delicious! Jagerschnitzel specialty is good. Desserts just OK. Ambiance and... read more

My initial visit 5 years ago was very enjoyable. Recent visits for dinner and brunch, not so much. I expected much more and was disappointed

I chose to have a late Sunday lunch here on the outside deck. Everything was great - except the service. The food and beer is amazing - always. I am a frequent flyer of the South Portland location. I even go to the one outside Sarasota in FL when I visit my parents. Choate was our server at the Topsham... More

Sea Dog makes good beer. The atmosphere is nice and the location and view are really nice. Until yesterday, we had only been there for lunch or dinner and it has been good. Yesterday we went to their all you can eat brunch. It was mediocre at best. For the price, the selection was not impressive. The servers were not... More

Burgers and sandwiches are great. The selection of craft beers is wonderful. I did the turkey BLT and the turkey was roasted, not the packaged stuff you get a most places.

We had the fish and chips and were seated near a window. The fish was nicely battered and the lunch portion was just the right size. We also enjoyed their own craft beer. The Raspberry Ale was light and summery. The Hazelnut Porter was tasty and a nice pairing with the fish.

Fourth time here and every time, we say "never again." #1 trip... Went with another couple and food was "okay." Service, slow as death and it was dead in there. #2 trip we went in late evening on a weeknight. Bartender was rude. Clearly bothered we came in 20min before food would not be served and we had seven whole... More

Love the location of the Sea Dog in Topsham. We went once for a late lunch/early dinner and the specials menu was awesome - we kept ordering more (cioppino was terrific). Beer was just right. Then, at the end of December, we went back, and had a very different experience. Again, an early dinner so not packed but service was... More

I love the natural decor of this old mill! Wonderful feeling, great place to imbibe, variety of food for anyone's palate, great service. I had the calamari appetizer and they were done perfectly. So many places overcook and you end up with chewy, chewy, chewy!

We stop here from time to time and always leave satisfied. Menu is very good with a great gluten free selection and nice choices for vegetarians and vegans. Food is always good and staff is always cheerful and attentive. If you're in the area it's definitely the place to go for great beer and good food!
