It was a busy night at the restaurant when my husband and I were there, so we opted to sit at the bar. The bartender was very engaging, to all customers, and helpful explaining all of the tap beers we were unfamiliar with. We ordered dinner at the bar, as several customers seemed to be doing, and the food was terrific! We had the Bridgeport IPA Beer Battered Fish & Chips and the Gulf Prawn and Bay Scallop Angel Hair Pasta (with brandied shrimp sauce!) and it was delicious! My husband travels to Portland frequently and always eats here - says it is always good. From the atmosphere, to the service, to the food - awesome!
