Great location and good food

We always enjoy driving up to Topsham and sit by the falls. They always serve good food and there is a good selection of menu items. Great beer too!!

When you go into a brewery you think it's all about the beer. Sure, but if you can't hear your friends or the food offered is soso, what fun will you have? There is a reason why this restaurant has a waiting line in the evening. Great beer, attentive wait staff that notice when your coffee, tea, water, soda or... More

I've always enjoyed Sea Dog back when I lived in Maine. I always end up going back when I come up. I love their food, especially their burgers. The portion sizes and quality is spot-on and the views of the Androscoggin River on the deck is incredible. Often times I have seen fisherman reel in a catch and sometimes have... More

This was the second time we indulged in the Brunch Buffet, both times with family and or friends. It is a very good deal, particularly if you are a mug club member. Family and friends really Enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere.

We fell upon this place as we stopped to take a photo of the old Mill. We didn't know this little gem existed; what a great find! Hidden down the side of the old historical mill is this charming brewery/restaurant. The clam chowder was pretty good. Exposed brick walls display historical photos of the original Mill, all windows provide views... More

The Sea Dog is a local favorite with a lively, welcoming atmosphere and a great place to meet friends for a bite and a beer or a delicious dinner. The menu is diverse with an almost endless array of choices. However, you can't go wrong with one of their awesome burgers grilled just the way you like them. Service is... More

I always bring my visitors here for at least one meal. I think the food and service are very good and the atmosphere is so nice with views of the river and a rustic, old mill feeling inside. I always appreciate when a business makes the effort to maintain/convert an historic building. The beer selection is top-notch with many seasonal... More

Mug club members are known by name and the staff is always friendly. We eat here a lot and, as it has been mentioned, the food is up and down. Sometimes it's great, other times it's average at best but it's pub food folks. So go for the view, enjoy the friendly atmosphere, grab a bite and try their locally... More

The food is "good", the beer is "great", but the festive atmosphere and river views are what keep my out-of-town guests coming back to "The Dog" year after year. Be prepared to talk above the crowd or turn up your hearing aid, because the guests here are having a good time!

Visited Sea Dog Brewery during the Patriots game Sunday night. Called ahead to see if we needed reservations and were told they didn't take reservations but that we should come early because it gets packed. When we got there, over 3/4 of the restaurant was open and it never filled up throughout the night. We were not too happy that... More
