The food is perfect without being pretentious. So many places say they provide "Comfort food"
but black birch really does.

The Fish and chips was the best rendition I ever had--A huge piece of fresh cod, home made ketchup, great coleslaw and crispy fries.

The drinks and beer and the staff are great as well.

And finally they spin vinyl and have the most amazing music

Along with Anneke Jans this is the best restaurant in Kittery. Delicious small plates to start-- I recommend the deviled eggs and the duck confit poutine--both are to die for. Folks saying they have had better roasted cauliflower...please, a little elitist if you ask me. BB's roasted cauliflower along with pickled vegetables are absolutely delicious and the seasonal duck entree along with the pork schnitzel are dishes my friends and I order again and again.

Cheers!

The always on site owners do so many things right. The food is scrumptious updated comfort food lead by one of the owners as head chef, the service is super attentive lead by another owner, everyone is so friendly, the bar is extremely current including a wall of draft micro brews also lead by another owner, another owner handles the front of house which is no small feat due to popularity of the restaurant. How often does one say a bit expensive but well worth it!

Nothing to right home about. I guess I am just not into this small plates thing, the food was ok and you can pretty much find a line up of good beers almost anywhere in this area. The deviled eggs are good, the pork spring rolls where greasy and lacking pork, the roasted cauliflower was ok, I have had better, the French dip sandwich ,ok. You get it a lot of oks, not to many this is the "best thing I have ever had I will be back here tomorrow." There are so many great options in the area I wonder why people are waiting in line to get in here, what am I missing?

We have gone here several times in the past year and it has been fun. The beer is delicious, of course, the food just average. It is difficult to get a table, and if you don't mind squeezing in, you can meet new people if you sit at the high table. I would go again for a beer and skip the dinners.
