    Had the Slab - Crab - Slab...basically a grilled cheese with crab inside. Most excellent I must say. And craft beer selection to die for.

    A good cozy place, with solid pub food options. The cheesesteak's cheese is made in-house.

    A Portland staple out of the old port. Beer selection is massive. Get the nachos or the hot mess. A personal favorite.

    I really like the crazy nachos and fries here. I will take either one of those when I go. My father loves the BBQ Hot Mess which is layers of food filling a mason jar. The wings there are great too.

    Buffalo sauce is great! However, the tuna melt down isn't what it seems. I would order something different next time. Great atmosphere though.

    Try "The substance" by Bissell brothers Brewery... Hands down one of the best IPA'S I've ever had. Even better than heady topper IMHO.

    Known for a very large tap list and eclectic atmosphere, this place is an institution. Order the buffalo wings or cheese steak, and wash it down with some Maine beer. FYI parking is a pain!!

    An icon in Portland for a couple of decades. Craft beer and great burgers is their thing. Many, many taps, if your into craft brew on draught, it's worth the trip to Portland to experience TGLB.

    An institution with a great beer list. But beware. Bar staff are not knowledgeable in what they are pouring. Service is mediocre at best, and our bartender was ignorant and rude. Prior visits were ok.

    Ask for the Cheesus Christ Superstar (secret burger, not on the menu) a burger served with everything between two cheese sandwiches. For the faint of heart try the regular chesus (on the menu)
