Best beer in portland. Pub fare food is above average. A Portland must stop for locals and tourist.

The only downside is having to share the picnic table with other people - which is fine in a group but can be a downside for a dating type environment. That said, I suggest this place as a great pre-hockey game stop, or even a first date meet up. I personally prefer sitting at the bar so I can look and face my date.

Food wise - the gritty chips are a must, especially if you are only there to drink. I have tried a sampling of all their beers, and I must say my favorite remains to be their ale and belgian types (the best is gone due to winter being over). Vacationland their summer beer is now on tap - so head over and have a few brews as a break from your walking or pre-dinner time killer!

Pros: great crowd, tvs, relaxed vibe

Cons: picnic table dining - you share the seating

This is a really fun palce to hang out with some friends and have a few beers. The prices are reasonable and the service is good. We didn't have to wait long for our orders to arrive.

Nice place to dine very casual and family friendly. The offer good old fashion pub food. They also have a good variety of beers on tap which are local. Prices are reasonable.

I had one bad expierence here, and it's skewed my opinion on Gritty's permanently. A few years back, when I was 18, I went to Gritty's to eat lunch with a friend (it was about 11:30 AM). My friend and I ordered our NOT alcoholic drinks, which apparently sent up red flags to our waitress. "Wait, no beers?" she asked. Not a beat later she says, "How old are you guys?" We tell her we're 18, and she then kicks us out, telling us that we're not allowed to eat there because we're underage and without a gaurdian. Oddest part of all, I had eaten there, with the same friend, only a couple weeks before, without any problems. This was a BIG disappointment, and I can honestly say I have not been back to Gritty's in a very long time.

Pros: good food, good beer

Cons: terrible waitstaff, inconsistent, a tad pricey

Right smack in the middle of the Old Port in Portland, Gritty's is a great place to meet friends for a happy hour pint, to get a mellow lunch, or to party like a rock star. Their beer is tasty and there's a wide selection to please any palette. (I'd recommend the stout if it's in season.) Their burgers are tasy, too. Gritty's underwent renovations in early 2002 to make the main room roomier. (On most weekend nights without fail, the bar would be so packed that you could barely walk through!) But despite the occasional crowd, the beer is good, the atmosphere relaxed and casual, and the food what you'd expect from a good pub. Try it for yourself!
