REVIEWS OF Bramhall IN Maine

Nicolas Joly

Got the chicken wings and a beer. Solid service and taste. But recommend more of a winter spot as it's underground.

Scott Wilezol

I like this bar a lot. It is dark with brick, stone and arches. Lots of character. The drinks were mixed really well. A great spirit and beer list to enjoy! I got the impression that this is where locals go and not a tourist trap, so that is another bonus. I would go back here next Time I’m here. Lots of character.

Bradley Carrico

Check this place out. It has a chill, speakeasy vibe to it. Good local beers on draft as well.

Priscilla Sosa

Please come see Marcus the bartender he is excellent at hospitality and added to the mystical atmosphere of the underground bar

Mustafa AlTaie

It is very quiet place. I hope they will have more customers in future.

Tim Parker

Lovely dungeon feel great place in the winter feels super cozy. Good outdoor seating for the nicer months.

laura gosselin

Food was AMAZING, staff was fabulous, and the vibe was perfect! Will most definitely be back!

Tom Aikins

I hadn't been here in 40 years when it was the Bramhall Pub but the room is basically the same. Went at happy hour (4-6) and the drink specials were great -- $2 for some of the bottled beers and $2 OFF the drafts. Good food, again at good prices, and four of the apps were half off, another great deal. Extremely knowledgeable bartender with huge lists of scotch, rye and bourbon. Will be back here since it's the best place I've been to since returning to Portland a few months ago.

Davin Mcdowell

Place was cool, but the service was slow and the menu was very short. Great place for drinks, maybe an app before you go out with friends. Need to work on the entrance if they are going to call themselves a speekeasy.

Jasmin Lyn Richards

Very swanky and cozy. The food is good and accompanied by a good variety of drinks (beer, cider, wine, cocktails, etc). I love this place for an intimate get together with a few friends or to start a night out.

Vera Smirnova

Amazing burger and fries!

Erica & Matt Shipman

Great cocktails in a cozy atmosphere

Devil Ears

The food was ok. Not great. I sat myself and it took 30 minutes for anyone to take my order. I got the food first and finally my drank came. I didn't order a second one. They need a few fans. Too Hot up in there.

Sharon Kaye

Awesome as always

Andrew Miner

Great bar. Great drinks. Great pub food. Great atmosphere. Great staff. Awesome use of a limited underground space.

Mandy Zorn

Quiet, simple; focus on the drinks and company in a casual but classy atmosphere. Candle light, exposed brick, benches and bar.

Jacob Butler

Moody, beautiful lighting in a historic building. The burger was excellent, beer selection great. The fries were incredibly thin, almost like a potato stick, best eaten by the handful.

Tim Ermlich

Cozy underground pub. Craft brews, good drinks & interesting menu. Eclectic crowd, hipsters to middle age (me). Has been one of my favorites for 20 years in prior and current incarnation

Francisco Santana

Awesome atmosphere, great drinks, expensive but tasty food

Alexander Edwards

Great Vibe. Glad we went!


Service is beyond excellence. Beer list hits and the cocktails are unique. Atmosphere can’t be beat. A solid go-to.

Corey Brown

Great atmosphere, rotating local beer selection, good cocktails, nice patio in the summer

Chris Bernazzani

The Bramhall is my favorite hideaway lounge. The staff is so professional, knowledgable and friendly. The bartenders are pros..go there

Matthew Campbell

Great bar with lots of beer selections and really good pubstyle food

Andrew Davis

Great bar, with a nice selection of whisk(e)y. Dark, with a speakeasy feel.

Michael Denner

I really liked this place but the idea that they serve inventive food (from the restaurant description on Google) is laughable. They have A VERY small menu of good but not great pub food.

Abigail Harris-Culver

The Last Meow is delicious and unexpected

Brett Mullineaux

Great beer

Brad Smith

This place is awesome. The staff is amazing. Craft cocktails that will knock your socks off. And the food was great too. Dont miss it.

Simone S

One of the coolest bars I've ever been in, great atmosphere, clever drinks

Michel Battaglin

Bramhall is my go-to bar. Seriously, it's like you're in a castle dungeon. The drinks are also fantastic and imaginative!

Kevin Macksoud

One of the best underground speak easy-type lounges I've ever been to hands down, in any state, but it impressed me especially for one in Maine. One of those places you want to tell everyone about but don't want alot of people to know about so it can still be "your spot".

Rachael Ellis

Really nice ambiance, pretty busy(it was a Saturday night) and the wait staff is very accommodating and personable. Small but decent local draft beer on tap too. Would love to go back and try the food!

Maximilian Rütten

Nice speakeasy bar in Portland! Delicious fries and nice beer!

christopher cutting

Always a great atmosphere and the food is amazing!

Alexes Del Valle

My boyfriend and I were in Portland for a couple of nights, and came here on suggestion from someone on the Brew Bus tour. Really cool spot, dark rustic atmosphere, good beer, definitely favorite bar we went to while in town.

Doug Smith

Great scotch/whiskey/bourbon selection!

Jes Roberts

We were hopping around Portland to find as many unique bars as possible (and there are quite a few) we ended up at Bramhall twice that night! Good beer and a LOT of liquor to choose from! Staff was friendly and very outgoing. We didnt get food but the food we did see come out looked fand smelled fantastic!

Alexandra Daniel

Good drinks.

Charles Gibert

Fantastic experience grabbing a couple drinks here. The bartenders were knowledgeable and very friendly. The deviled eggs were a bit of a disappoinment but the drinks easily made up for it.

Zach Houdek

Nice, cozy place for a specialty cocktail or craft beer. Or pop in for the best wings in Portland.. spicy honey garlic cooked to perfection!

Jeremy Lota

Great neighborhood spot with good food, and an incredible whiskey selection. Patio in the summer is the best!

Jordan Heath

Hamburger was pretty good. We ordered drinks that never came, though, which was disappointing. Also another time I was here I ordered nachos that ended up being potato chips with string cheese and bacon bits. So order a hamburger instead if you go.

Joseph Kuzma

Can be pricey if you're not careful but the food is good and the bourbon selection is second to none in Portland

Ken Moulton Jr.

For a previous century's basement (turned bar room), this underground hard-to-find snug is a diamond in the rough that's really raisin' the bar to the top shelf. Serving mind-blowing drinks and a full menu right up until 1am, this darkened …

Christopher Caldarella

Place has a great beer selection and the hummus platter was really good too! One of few places I can get Old Rasputin Imperial Stout beer. Inside has a nice candle lit atmosphere, and there is also a nice back patio area if you prefer to sit outside.

Scott Thomas

Excellent for beer and munchies. Cool environment. Could use some work on their poutine - never use shoestring fries for poutine. Nachos very good!

Grant Nuttall

Super cozy, dark, quiet spot to hang out and drink local craft beer and eat great appetizers. The servers were amazingly friendly. We got the Brussel Sprouts and they may have been one of the tastiest things I’ve ever eaten

Christine McHale

I went to the Bramhall Pub in the mid-70s when I worked at Maine Med. I've been back pretty much every decade and that tells you something. Nice place for a drink and snack.

Alan Kuz

Friendly bar staff. Good dessert...didn’t have time for any beverages.


Bramhall is a great cozy spot with awesome food. Burger is always a hit. Don't be discouraged if it's packed full, which is usually the case, because it's worth stopping back!


This place is awesome! Great food, drinks and service!!!

Julia Cornell

If you want someone to have a delicious, classy, intimate drink in Portland, visit Bramhall. Great for a romantic sit-down date or casual drinks with friends, really unique selections of cocktails, extensive whiskey list, and incredible ambiance. Definitely don't miss a picture of the Bramhall Pub sign or the chimney lit with a pile of dripping candles - and in the girl's bathroom they have a pump sink! One of my favorite things is that it's lit mostly by candlelight, so the vibe is warm, cozy, and intimate.

Joe Fisher

Interesting drinks dark atmosphere chairs not very comfortable

Matt Cook

You walk downstairs, pull back a curtain and then voila, your escape from the real world. No windows or TVs at this bar which really adds to the atmosphere and vibe. Incredible anesthetic. They have an enormous drink menu with reasonable pricing and a small dinner menu that is also reasonably priced and very good. The bartender was friendly and conversational and knowledgeable without being too pushy or overbearing. If I lived in Maine I'd go here every day.

Jarred Johnson

Fantastic cocktail menu and a great vibe. The food is much better than standard bar fare.

Jonathan Meadows

A really beautiful basement speakeasy. The Amaro+Soda and 3 Dollar Bill, on the menu at the time of our visit, were both exceptional drinks, and much more complex than the menu description would lead one to think.

Robin Arneson

Great beer and wine selection. Fabulous service and wonderful ambiance. What more could you want?

Gregory Shaw

Nice atmosphere, drinks were delicious if a little pricey.

Mike D

Awesome atmosphere and great service

Austin Hodge

5 stars for the burger, which is all I've ever had here, because everytime I come back it's because I'm thinking of how good the burger is. (Good drinks too!)

katherine newman

Love this place. Best drinks and atmosphere. Don't come if you're in a rush

Bill McBreen

Nice and chill bar in a neat bricked out basement, complete with back patio. Nice ambiance and beer selection.

Mike Twitchell

Loved the atmosphere and history of the location. Its definitely on our lost of favorite places.

Jackie Grim

Stopped here on a whim after a baseball game this summer. Food was great (fresh takes on classic pub fare) and the drinks were even better. Cocktail menu was very creative and the drinks were well crafted.

Devin Harrington

Moody atmosphere and tiny chairs that are good for your back! The drinks are on point and they know how to crisp up some sprouts. I would highly recommend going here.

Joshua Hedderich

Mike behind the bar is a gem! Personable, engaging, and spinning great tunes! You ca tell he really cares about the environment, customers, and his team members.

Kathryn Poirier

Great ambiance. Such a fun experience. Bar tender is very attentive, even when all you get is food and water. There is an incredible selection of alcohol to choose from and a few food items. Fries are fantastic and they have super unique dips to choose from. It can get very loud when a lot of people are there but it's definitely worth the trip. A fun outdoor area through the back too.

Dean Kigans

Great food. Great drinks. Brussel sprouts and burger was amazing. Nick was our server and he was GREAT! Quick efficient and knowledgeable. Thanks Nick

JR Curley

This place is, in one word, awesome. Located on a quiet street in a suburban neighborhood, you head downstairs and into a relaxed, low key bar that has some of the best drinks around. The staff are not only super nice, they're very …

Dylan Gardner

One of the best burgers in town and the wings are amazing too.

Lincoln Lavoie

Unique setting and great food. Steak was perfectly done and the brussel sprouts were fantastic.

Maria Pingol

Quaint - lovely cocktails. Great burger and chicken bacon ranch wrap!!

Rob Smart

We just had a wonderful time at Bramhall. The atmosphere is cozy and great for conversational drinking and snacking. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the beer and booze selection offers something for everyone! Definitely give them a try!

Janaly Winters

Great cocktails in a great environment

Charles Crandall

Cellar bar. nice atmosphere. Never had the food.

stephen barton

Great bar, very cool ambience

Julie C

The place has a really unique atmosphere, bartender was really nice, also on Wednesday they feature a whiskey where they charge patrons whatever their cost is which was really neat to sample.
