Angus beef burgers cooked to perfection! Quite a variety of already paired topping combos on the menu but you can also build your own. I had a bacon, blue cheese and grilled onion that was unbelievably juicy and delicious. The quality of their bacon is amazing too. My husband had their chili dog overflowing with chili and cheese. He was very impressed with the quality and size of their hot dogs.
Portions are large and prices are low (a winning combo these days for any restaurant). The table next to us had the haddock and crab chowder with lobster rolls. They were raving too about the chunks of meat and savory taste.
Yes it's a bar as another reviewer pointed out. "Bar" and/or "pub": aren't the terms interchangeable these days? Don't go here if you are looking for a 4 diamond restaurant. But if you are looking for a casual, relaxed pub type atmosphere with fantastic food and stellar service, This is the place to go in Ellsworth. The (working) owner will make sure you are taken care of as she is probably one of the most personable and down to earth restauranteurs I have met in a long time. We will definitely be back.
