This bar frequently has live music. They offer a standard menu of items some with a Mexican slant, but largely american typical bar foods, wings, nachos, dips, steaks, etc. The beer selection is great with several local craft brews on tap and for an extremely competitive price. Will definitely go here again in the future.

You'll rarely have a bad meal at Mainely Brews - it's good pub grub. Their selection of micro brews is very good and the service is solid.

We were told that Mainely Brews was the best place in town so we ventured over there with some friends. We were so incredibly pleased with the food and atmosphere. Our server, I believe her name was Brooke was... More

The service is very inattentive, inexcusably slow, and sometimes rude. The don't care about your dining experience. But the actual drinks and food are fine.

Mainely Brews is the place you find in college towns that serves beer, has a full bar and pool tables along with a menu made up of pizza, burgers, and a few other things. It is a great place for students and young people looking for a comfortable and inexpensive place to eat and just hang out. They do a... More

We frequently patronize this establishment and have been quite satisfied, but this afternoon (mid-afternoon not during busy time) we went to have a drink and sandwiches and were completely dissatisfied. It took forever for the drinks, lunch and the check, three hours of which two hours was waiting for service. We were not offered if we wanted more drinks while... More

Not exactly busy, just a rainy and slow off-season Sunday. Yet, it still took 45 minutes to get simple pub food, slightly above average sized party of 4 adults and 2 small children. Once the meal was received, which was good, but absolutely zero drink refills over an hour period were had despite flagging of both the main waitress who... More

We ordered pizza for take out. We got the El Blanco. It was perfect. The crust was crispy and chewy at the same time. It's pricey, but so worth it. Wonderful🍕
