“Good Service and Good a Food - Great Combo”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Off season, midweek...our choice for pub food and World Series Game 1. Katie, our server, was pleasant, attentive, and accommodating. Asked for pizza "little well done," and she knew exactly what I meant. And the pizza was great with a crunchy panko dusting on the crust.She proudly proclaimed that the crab cakes were made fresh that day and my wife proclaimed them a hit. If this place is this good in the "off season" I will return in season to see how they can get even better.

“Great Maine Beer selection on Tap”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Basement establishment with some great local Maine beers (Allagash, Shipyard, others) on tap. Fun people working there and food available. I didn't have any. Live band at night but it would get crazy noisy due to the low ceiling and small space. We enjoyed.

My husband and I decided to go to this pub for dinner and drinks while staying in Bethel. Just about everything about our experience was horrible. Once we got inside we were told to seat ourselves and a waitress would be right with us. Ten minutes later the waitress dropped off our menus without a word and walked away. Ten minutes after that she took our drink order. We both ordered a beer and a water. She returned with our beers, no water, and left without taking our food order. Fifteen minutes later she finally returned to take our food order and we asked again for our waters. We ordered an appetizer and a pizza to split. We finally got our waters with the appetizer, which was partial burnt. One taste of the water and I wanted to spit it out. Either the pub has a problem with their water line or she gave us dirty dish water. We would have said something, but that was the last we saw of her until the check. Someone else brought us our pizza, while our waitress chatted up the table next to us who she clearly knew. We finished our pizza and beer and then sat at our table for twenty minutes while our waitress walked by a dozen times. She finally brought our check and we quickly left and went to a different place to have drinks. Needless to say, we won't be back.

“Charming Inn and Great Food”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Gorgeous inn with fabulous food. Our first night in Bethel and we could not have been treated better with awesome food and gracious service. Albeit most patrons were intent on watching the Red Sox in their play off game, staff kindly found a location within for us to watch SEC football while enjoying lovely eats and libations. Many helpful suggestions for our exploring and hiking adventures. A great recommendation from Colleen and Ted. We will be back for sure,

“Burgers and Beer”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Had the Bison Burger w/ blue cheese...really good. Nice selection of beer to wash it down with. Service was prompt, plenty of TV's scattered around the room. Good basic pub right in the heart of Bethel
