Nice place. It's a real pub. They brew their own beer. It tastes good. We had a small meal here. The burgers were fine. The people at the bar are friendly. They give you all the time you need and give good advises. It sure was a nice night.

We had dinner here at the recommendation of our hotel. I tried their pumpkin ale - very good. We also tried a special, Irish nachos - also delicious. We also tried Shepherd's Pie, a Mexicali Burger, and a haddock burrito. All choices were very tasty.

Met a friend for lunch at Gritty's, generally I love this place. I had the chili and just wasn't thrilled with it. My friend on the other hand had a burger and said it was delicious. The place offers a variety of seating and the menu has plants of choices. Our waitress was great. Just because I didn't care for... More

Me and my wife have been going to Gritty McDuff's in Auburn since before we were married. We used to go several times a week with a lot of our friends last year while we were dating. The atmosphere is inviting, it's great at being a bar AND a restaurant, live music on the weekends is always top notch and... More

Visited last Friday, introduced to Taber, one of the bartenders. Made great beer recommendation and food choices. Went with an IPA, and had the blackened haddock fiesta burrito. Absolutely perfect. If business brings me back, will definitely return!

Was in town on business and staying at a nearby hotel. Walked over not knowing what we were going to find. Glad we did. The atmosphere is very laid back. The menu has a wide range of food and drink choices. Both meals we had were excellent. The price was also very reasonable. If you are in the area, stop... More

` Great Pub. Great pub. Great menu. What a great find. The outdoor deck was just what we were looking for on our brief vacation. The food and beverages were great and so was the service. They have great menu choices as well as an extensive choices of beer. The view of the river was a bonus.

We took Mom to lunch today at Gritty's. We chose to sit outside on a beautiful breezy Saturday afternoon. As we walked through the pub, it was a comfortable temperature but the sunshine on the riverfront was too good to pass up. Our server greeted us promptly and took our drink order. We then ordered fried pickles as an appetizer,... More

I go there just about every Sunday for Music Bingo. This is one of my favorite local stops as I can see live bands on the weekends along with excellent food... and beer of course!

Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-five years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.
