“First time visit but it won't be the last!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Four of us went in for a late Sunday lunch and had a wonderful meal. From a Scotch Egg to the Bar Harbor Wedding Cake it was a meal to remember. The Pork Tenderloin was fantastic, with garlic mashed potatoes. There was also a Shepards Pie that was to die for. We can't wait to go back!

“The BEST Joint in Ellsworth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Don't let the storefront look of this place fool you. It is a great place to eat. In fact, the best meals I have had in Ellsworth were all eaten there. The food matches up to the level of fine dining anywhere else in an atmosphere that is not only 'relaxed' but relaxing. The restaurant has been crowded every time I have gone there but there was always a table to be had someplace. Eating in the original diner car bar is fun. Dining in the main room might mean listening to live entertainment, if it is one of the nights in which it is provided. I would like to recommend a particular dish but I haven't gone through the entire menu yet. All I can say is that every single thing I have ordered is well prepared, well presented and brought to the table by professional wait staff who make you feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. If you are within range, make a point of eating there. You won't be disappointed.

“Great Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

We ate here twice during our recent stay in Ellsworth. The fish & chips is the best ever. All the staff are really friendly and the service is quick. Although the decor is dated and basic the food is excellent. Don't miss this pub.

“Go Here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Enjoyed great food and entertainment. Had Pork Medallions and Meatloaf. We thought both were delicious. Had a Pink Cadilliac Martini and husband had a local ale. Waitress was great and overall experience was very good! Nice atmosphere.

Had a great Sunday lunch. Friendly and helpful staff, nice atmosphere. Fish and chips were some of the best I've ever had. Definitely would eat here again.
