– I stopped in for a bite to eat on my way up North…I had never been to this part of Kittery before, nor to this establishment. It seemed like a pretty fun little bar/grill though! The service was pretty good and the staff and patrons were friendly. The prices were pretty reasonable and the atmosphere was pretty much standard... More

Thought we would venture from our home port and head down east fifty miles to the lovely town of Kittery and the eating and drinking establishment mentioned above.(Just don't attempt this on a Sunday afternoon around two PM or so. Bumper to bumper on the Maine Turnpike.) Okay..Now about the bar room...Nice entrance.Clean, neat, and orderly.Greeted by a lovely smiling... More

We saw the kids meal online and thought it would be a great place to get some drinks while still allowing the offspring to have his own meal. But if you have little ones, be forewarned that the interior tables are only high top. It wasn't an issue for us, but it could be for someone else. The food was... More

Food was really good and staff was friendly. Food took a little while to get to the table but it was worth the wait. Lobster Mac and Cheese was tasty but a little soupy. Curry ketchup was great with fries.

Superb bacon cheeseburgers, done to order served with outstanding curly fries and a sauce of the day. They actually serve burgers rare. Signature dish is a meatloaf with bacon which I will have to try. Small but superb selection of beers - best was a Czech Pils. There is a large screen TV on the wall tuned into sports -... More

Located in downtown Kittery near the navel yard. Not a large place inside but has outside seating under cover in case of rain. Very good food at reasonable prices. it took a while to get our food after we ordered but was worth the wait. I will go back again next trip to Kittery.

Great place and family friendly. The food was great and the service was very friendly. As a bonus our sons got to see a submarine in the harbor when we left.

When I say Upscale, don't think fancy - it's just nice. It has a vibe and good food and great beer and is just overall a terrific but small little place tucked into the heart of Kittery Foreside. It's very close to 5 stars - everything is there except a little effort to be really exceptional. Definitely one of the... More
