Description: Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-six years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.

“Expect more but was okay”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went there expecting a slightly better than average food experience based on what we had heard from others but turned out to be just average. Food and drinks were good and service was better than average.

“Good reliable pub food”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

When ever I am in the Freeport area, a stop at Grittys is a "must do" on the first night. We always seem to get in late and it's comforting to know a Black Fly Stout, good pub food, and a friendly atmosphere await. I am a vegetarian but there are several selections to choose from, especially the veggie burrito, in which the veggies change seasonally.

“Pulled Pork Sweet Potatoe Fries FOREVER!!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I think you should heed my advice and read the title of my review. They are, hands down, the best appetizer in the history of mankind (as long as you don't care about calorie intake, etc, etc.).
My wife and I went to Freeport for a week and went three times to this places just for the fries. The other meals were good, but they didn't even compare to this appetizer.

Good overall service, three separate locations. Freeport is a good one because they have outside seating. The one in Portland is more of a bar.

Enjoy the fries!
