We were excited to go to a Scottish bar but were disappointed that there was almost nothing Scottish about it. There weren't that many people there and yet had trouble getting a drink. There was a rock band playing which was actually pretty good. Never tried the food after taking so long to get drinks.

Thank you for visiting the GFB while in OOB. We would like to take a moment to point out all the attributes which make us an authentic Scottish pub. We feature as many as 19 kinds of Scotch and whiskey as well as three varieties of Scottish beer. On our menu you will see several Scottish inspired entrees, the most popular being Scottish eggs and our interpretation of Haggis. All the chairs in our dining room are clad in plaid upholstery. We have Scottish memorabilia such as the national flag, the royal standard of Scotland flag and a map of the UK which features a town bearing the name Greenlaw (our family name). We have hosted bagpipers here on multiple occasions. On any given day, especially in warmer weather, you will see the owner Bob wearing his Black Watch kilt complete with traditional claymore sword kilt pin. We put research into what pubs look like in Scotland and have received feedback from people who have travelled to our mother land that we have duplicated the experience od an authentic Scottish Pub very well.
With all this being said, we would be honored if you would take the opportunity to visit the GFB again the next time you are in Old Orchard Beach and look at us with renewed vision. We wish you blessings and happiness.

“Best entertainment in town”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The bar not only had friendly locals, it was stocked with play dough and squirt guns. The band, Jonny Wad and the Cash, was phenomenal. Loved dancing to them all night. Hope to sample the menu next time.
