“Expect more but was okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went there expecting a slightly better than average food experience based on what we had heard from others but turned out to be just average. Food and drinks were good and service was better than average.

When we visit Freeport we make it a point to stop here for lunch and it's always good. Great staff, good food and excellent beer in a fun atmosphere! Highly recommend Gritty McDuff's!

“Good reliable pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

When ever I am in the Freeport area, a stop at Grittys is a "must do" on the first night. We always seem to get in late and it's comforting to know a Black Fly Stout, good pub food, and a friendly atmosphere await. I am a vegetarian but there are several selections to choose from, especially the veggie burrito, in which the veggies change seasonally.

“Pulled Pork Sweet Potatoe Fries FOREVER!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I think you should heed my advice and read the title of my review. They are, hands down, the best appetizer in the history of mankind (as long as you don't care about calorie intake, etc, etc.).
My wife and I went to Freeport for a week and went three times to this places just for the fries. The other meals were good, but they didn't even compare to this appetizer.

Good overall service, three separate locations. Freeport is a good one because they have outside seating. The one in Portland is more of a bar.

Enjoy the fries!
