“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I am rating the Topsham restaurant. We have been there several times for lunch and dinner and I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is really nice and such a view from the porch overlooking the river in the summer. A treat for your pallet and fair prices. A very diverse menu with something for everyone.

everything I've EVER had here is spectacular! How DO YOU DECIDE?! The beer flights offer the best selection of any brew pub!

“Check this place out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This place has something for everyone. Great menu and beer selection. Highly recommend the Black & Blue, a twist on the stout. Quite delicious. Service is nice but a little lacking. Got alot of smiles from the staff from far away but that does not provide you with the service you desire while out and unable to get things yourself.
My husband had the Blackened Haddock Sandwich, which was actually blackened (not just seasoned) and very tasty. I had the Ceasar Salad with Blackened Salmon which was really good but the portion was SO small. It was 1/2 of a dinner salad (at best). The salmon portion was fine but overall not a good value at $17. I'm actually surprised the waitress served it.
But alas, we did order dessert, the Blueberry Cake! A great finish to our experience. Overall, the good outweighed the bad. Is that good? I suggest you check it out for yourself... it is worth a try, for sure!

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We asked the receptionist at our hotel for a lobster restaurant. She recommended Sea Dog Brewing. It's located in a converted mill on the river. My wife ordered the lobster dinner and l ordered the lobster feast. 1 lb of mussels, clam chowder and a beer in addition to a whole lobster, fries and cole slaw for $25.99. Not only was the price good so was the food and service. We went back the next night because it was so good, something we rarely do!

“Nice Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We enjoyed having the soup, salad and bread along with their beer. I would recommend requesting a sample of the beer that you want to try before ordering.
