“just OK”
Reviewed September 17, 2006

This is an OK place to get a quick meal and some drinks in the Old Port, but the food is never that great. Definitely no where near as good as their sister restaurant Ruski's, located in the West End. Free popcorn, if that's your thing.

“Friendly local Restaurant”
Reviewed September 9, 2006

Rosies is a local bar with a friendly atmosphere.
Bring your darts. They have two dart boards to play while eating free popcorn and enjoying drinks. The affordable menu is full of bar favorites including pizza, souther fried chicken with gravy, great burgers and much more. The staff is very friendly. They offered my daughters darts to play with. The kids have rated Rosies the best place in Portland!! Rosies is on our list of best places to eat and play when we visit Portland.
