We had dinner here on a recent trip to the area. The building is great right on the river and I loved the decor but my food left something to be desired. I ordered the fisherman's stew and it was just very bland with what appeared to be instant mashed potatoes on top. One ingredient was to be shrimp but... More

This is a place that I have frequented many many times over my 4 years living in Brunswick and I think it's time I summarized what all locals think. Good: Atmosphere is great. How often can you eat in an old mill next to a rushing river ? Pretty neat. In the summer definitely wait for the porch seating it's... More

Great view, great brews and the food even made my wife happy. Very helpful staff that are great with local information. Went on a Sunday and they had brunch (very crowded), we came back an hour later and got right in. This would have been well worth the wait if we had stayed.

Went to the Sea Dog this past weekend and it was great all around. I had the fish tacos with a side salad and both were excellent. Had several with me so we tried 4 different beers - blueberry, raspberry, apricot and sun fish. All were excellent! The view from this location in Topsham can't be beat. Go on a... More

We drove to the Sea Dog after a recommendation from a Topsham area resident. We are glad that we did! We sat on the outside deck with a beautiful view of the bridge and water. My husband had the Fish and Chips which he loved, and I had the Scallop Dinner. The food was delicious! The only problem that we... More

We just went here on 8/27/14. We sat out on the deck under the canopy. It was very nice at first. Then the sun started to go down and I noticed a huge spider crawling on the railing next to me and my wife. At first I tried to ignore it. The a group of women sitting at a large... More

Cooked perfect medium-medium well and so very moist, it was amazing!! It had a basil,sweet glaze, that left a very unique taste but so delectable, I want another right now :) The side was... More

How can you go wrong? Beer from Sea Dog and good Brew Pub Grub to go with it! We had a great dinner with friends sitting outside overlooking the water on a sunny afternoon. We had burgers and the seafood pie. Definitely well done and a good time. All this said, I will admit that the draw for me is... More

I've had two lunches here and both were wonderful.I suggest eating on the patio overlooking the river. The staff is wonderful and attentive. Both times, I had the lobster dinner and they were happy to substitute corn on the cob for me. My Sister had the lobster stew/soup and raved about it.

Came here for dinner and had the Maine lobster and fishermans pie, both were really good. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit.
