We visit here frequently for the best brick oven pizzas, yet lately not so much. To be exact this was the third time in a row we had a bad meal. To add insult to injury we had the worst waitress ever. She literally threw our food down and ran off. It was at least 15 minutes in between seeing... More

Cozy pub/restaurant that seems to welcome you in. Friendly service, awesome selection of beer, good bar drinks and specials. Normal pub food and brick oven pizza. I only wish they had more entrees as they focus mostly on burgers and pizza.

while visiting the University of Maine stopped here for dinner and were very happy with everything. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was very good and they had very good specials. The local beer selection was good, There was ample parking in the rear of the restaurant.

We went for lunch at an off time, sat upstairs by ourselves so it was nice and quiet, the service was great. Steak and cheese was ok, Cajun haddock wrap was the best food I had all weekend in town - would definitely go back for that! Prices very reasonable. Great draft selection.

The beer, burgers, and pizza are always great. Not as good as in its hey day but still a great place to go.

The Bear Brew Pub has great food. I have been there a few different times. The first time I went with my Dad who was visiting from New York. He had one of the burgers, and said it was really good. Their pizza is amazing! I love the atmosphere and the vibe, especially at night when they have the twinkle... More

I did not come here to eat, I came with 7 others to dance at the nightclub. It was decent music, and a lively crowd. The service was fast & friendly, and the drinks were good, and fair priced.

My family goes here every Tuesday for 2 for 1 pizzas. It's the best pizza. They have a huge selection of beer and if pizza is not your thing they have amazing entrees as well. Kid friendly and wonderful staff. I bring all my friends here.

Clean pub with great beer and even better brick-oven pizza! Tuesdays are BOGO small cheese pizzas and we're regular customers for this deal - so delicious! They have similar deals other days of the week and we occasionally hit those up as well. The staff has always been pleasant, whether dining in or taking out. The only gripe is parking... More
