We went here twice on our visit to New England. We really liked the layed back vibe, the good beer, the big windows for people watching, the fantastic bar, the eclectic decorations and even the quirky bartenter. I can understand why some poeple wouldn´t like his relaxed and easy going style but I do. It fits with the atmosphere. We had Sunday Brunch which was good, but not fantastic. The second time we were there in the evening just for drinks but the things being served looked good. Considering the fantastic resaurants in Portland, this place would rate a solid GOOD. If you want a good meal in an interesting bar with local people and a relaxed atmosphere, with fun people watching...this is a great place for that.
