The layout is a bit odd with separated rooms and feeling a bit squished seating. However, the patio is lovely and a nice option. The food was okay. I also found it to be loud. Many of my friends really like Mainely Brews and return often.

We have never had a bad meal or experience. The food is always fresh and tasty. What is supposed to be cold is cold what is supposed to be hot is hot.

Our large group was served by an inexperienced but great waitress, however, the food was mediocre at best and gave me horrible indigestion (Note: I never get an upset stomach and eat lots of very spicy food, pickles, sushi, and all manner of bizarre stuff without ill effects). Good beer selection and a very varied menu. My dining companions seemed... More

The menu looked great, but the preparation was lacking. My swordfish was overcooked. Prices were very reasonable and that's why they get 3, not 2, stars. My girlfriend had blackened salmon that wasn't blackened. It looked like they gave her the smaller, unblackened entree. Our server was friendly but not knowledgeable. When I asked for recommendations all she did was... More

Finding good pub fare can be a pain. Luckily, this place runs near the top for me. In terms of location, this place can be a little easy to miss. The sign for the place isn't prominent, but the building has good atmosphere (it really IS an old post office). The few times I've been there, my wife and I... More

Fun interior design and really good pub food. Amazing nachos, good fries, wonderful fish and chips, good burgers. You really cannot go wrong with anything on this menu.

Picked this restaurant based on Yelp and Tripadvisor reviews. Also was open for Sunday dinner. Neat building, although we sat outside on pleasant patio. Nice garden/plantings. Decent food. Friendly waitress. Would eat here again.

Pipa beer - very good. Liquid Sunshine - not that much. Brewhouse Skins - Excellent. Good location, nice interior. Waiters well acquainted with beers they were serving so they could advise what beer to order by my taste.

My wife and I ate here twice in the past week. Food was awesome - fish & chips/sampler platter and BLT/turkey club. Draft beers were awesome. Only problem was that both times the wait staff was highly stressed. The first night we noticed that one couple got up and left because they had been waiting too long to put in... More
