Food was very good as was the service. It felt very warm and comfortable and everyone dining there seemed to be having a good time. We had lunch with a nice wine selection (the on tap beer list was impressive). Definitely worth a lunch time visit.

Stopped in for dinner, building façade not impressive, hard to imagine there is such an excellent restaurant behind it. We were hoping to NOT get bored by your regular pub food - and it did not disappoint. Tried several Irish dishes I never had before, all were very good. Waitress was very good, friendly, but not annoying. Oysters were excellent! Had banger sausages with mash - excellent and highly recommend. Lemoncello torte was an excellent desert. Will visit again for sure!

Four of us went in for a late Sunday lunch and had a wonderful meal. From a Scotch Egg to the Bar Harbor Wedding Cake it was a meal to remember. The Pork Tenderloin was fantastic, with garlic mashed potatoes. There was also a Shepards Pie that was to die for. We can't wait to go back!

Don't let the storefront look of this place fool you. It is a great place to eat. In fact, the best meals I have had in Ellsworth were all eaten there. The food matches up to the level of fine dining anywhere else in an atmosphere that is not only 'relaxed' but relaxing. The restaurant has been crowded every time I have gone there but there was always a table to be had someplace. Eating in the original diner car bar is fun. Dining in the main room might mean listening to live entertainment, if it is one of the nights in which it is provided. I would like to recommend a particular dish but I haven't gone through the entire menu yet. All I can say is that every single thing I have ordered is well prepared, well presented and brought to the table by professional wait staff who make you feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. If you are within range, make a point of eating there. You won't be disappointed.

We ate here twice during our recent stay in Ellsworth. The fish & chips is the best ever. All the staff are really friendly and the service is quick. Although the decor is dated and basic the food is excellent. Don't miss this pub.
