REVIEWS OF Rosie's Restaurant & Pub IN Maine

Steffanie Brown

Great food with great prices! Lots of beer on tap and drink specials. Lobster roll was outstanding!!

Shawn Pitman

Okay, let me be clear, I go to this place for TWO REASONS: (1) $1.25 rotating draft, and (2) $1.50 MHL. If Rosie's serves anything else, then I'm not aware. Go here for a great "pub" environment and amazing beer prices. Portland's waterfront is beautiful, but Rosie's makes a quick walking detour worth your time.

Brian Collender

Good bar to watch sports. Reasonable prices on drinks. The wine selection is not the best and the pizza was just ok. They do have free popcorn which is a plus.

William James

Great food!


6 of us walked in on a Sat night, 7pm and they couldn't be bothered. It wasn't busy and the dart players were loitering the tiny dining room. I know it has good reviews for food, but don't bother if you want someplace decent because this isn't the place. So disappointing because they had good reviews. It looked like an unclean 20 year old Pub on a Main Street, with equally matched staff.

Jon Kenyon

Great little local spot with good food, great drinks and unpretentious food prepared well at a good price point.

Alison H

Great sandwiches for a great price! Nice, local and casual, a real treat in the Old Port.

Daniela Vargas

Affordable drink specials and drafts, and free popcorn! Dart boards as well, and you can choose the next song through an app. It’s always a good time

RibbitQueen Block

Great atmosphere and service, I was served right away and had a cozy seat at the bar. I was able to visit with my family and hear everything they said. Thank you!

Duncan Lane

Great bar for the weekends-- 1.25 and 1.50 pint specials. Relaxed but interesting atmosphere-- a wonderfully balanced option for overindulging on a Friday or Saturday night.

Winnie Rockentine

Friendly atmosphere and good drink specials.

Yassine Ben Jemaa

We loved the place and especially the 1.25 pints of beer

Joshua Cousins

Always good. Been going here off and on for more than a decade. The menu has changed, prices have changed, but it had always been good. Probably my favorite place to have a few drinks with friends. Good drink specials too.

Donald Kennedy

Food good folk friendly

Joe C

Cozy little place with the distinguishing feature of free darts.

Eugene DiCesaris

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The service was friendly and helpful. The place was clean and the food was delicious. We found the prices to be very reasonable and fair. We also had a window table which gave us a very nice view of Fore Street. Check it out.

Daniel Dimitrov

I go to Rosie's at least once every week. It's the perfect place to spend time with friends or co-workers after work. Great spirits, amazing and friendly staff and last but not least AMAZING prices on the beers!

Justin Daigle

Amazing restaurant and pub. Large seating area and bar. Good atmosphere, service was great and food was REALLY good. I had the onion rings and egg+cheddar+bacon burger. The onion rings were thick and beer battered. The burger was very fresh along with the lettuce, tomatoe, egg, and bacon. It is one of the best burgers I've had in a while.

Dean Hayden Revocable Trust

Quintessential meeting place, very cozy!

Emily I

Great food right on the cobblestone street. Atmosphere is definitely more pub than restaurant but the food and beers were good and the servers were very helpful.

Jenny Skoczylas

I'd give it more stars if I could. Very kind, polite staff. Excellent food and great portions.

Colby Cronin

Cheap beer and fun atmosphere, hard to find in a real city. Great for just drinking and having fun with friends

Abhi Abhilash

Good place with great food options.

Clare Chenea

Rosie's is a great place to go for an affordable lobster roll and cheap beer. Always good people watching, staff is friendly. It's not pretentious, it's filled with locals and easy hanging.

Rust Leg

Townie bar. Food and drinks can be hit or miss even though it is primarily bar food. They also need some panels to buffer the noise.. The wood ceiling makes it a loud experience.

Domin I

I go here every time I’m in Portland. Food is good and so are the drinks.

Jackson Swann

Super cheap, good enough food, and is where all the locals hang out. Free popcorn for all and darts make this the best place for anytime of night.

Jerry Hert

The burgers are awesome. Juicy and cooked perfect. Do the upgrade to the sidewinder fries. I have to say out of all the places we ate at in the New England states this one is hands down the best. Seating is limited, I saw 2 tables for 4 the rest are for 2. The staff is very sweet.

Simon Navarro

I fell in love with this spot, you can't beat the 1.50 high life's and the 1.25 rotating beer. There is also free popcorn and the food is super cheap and filling. And the atmosphere is a cool joint with friendly people I love the vibes and feel of Rosie's.

Warren A

Nice little bar. The lobster rolls are good price and very tasty. Good place to go to get some lobster rolls. Service is a little slow when things get busy tho. But overall not bad

Roger Keller

good food good prices

Gary Landry

Fun for drinks darts and hamburgers

Aja Worrell

The food is good but the service is not the best. Seems like you have to know someone who works there to get service quickly. I was sitting there for a while locking eyes with one of the bartenders and she did not bother to come over to see if i wanted anything or acknowledge me. Some lady walks in who apparently goes there a lot because this bartender already got her drink in the glass as soon as she walked in basically and she was served immediately. Finally another bartender came to me and took my order. When my food was ready the one who was ignoring me placed it down and did not say a word. Very rude and snooty! The tips are split which makes me feel bad because the one who did not ignore me deserved the full tip. She checked on what i needed a few times. She did her job. So long story short if you are looking for good food, decent service, and do not wish to be ignored, i do not recommend it because what happened to me might happen with you. There are plenty more bars/restaurants in the area.

TheBusiness. Music

Great food and great prices! The staff service is quite nice as well :)

Jenn La

Their popcorn is actually really horrible. But they have darts and cheap beer

Bob & Inga

We lucked into a curbside parking spot out front When we came back up from Commercial we stopped in. We both had a very good lobster roll and the salad upgrade. We very both very pleased with the food, our service and Rosie's in general. We will stop again when in the area.

Judy Warfield

Best lobster roll and great service

Karl Weidenboerner

Good food and friendly service and reasonable prices

Dix Winger

Great drink specials and apps!!!

Drew H

Classic sports bar. Good place to go with friends. Free popcorn always a bonus. Food smells good but have never tried. Good draft selections

Frank Nixon

We really liked this place. Very clean, great staff and service.

chris Couts

Tarrence and Paige are the BEST fastest and friendlist bartenders in the old Port.

Ahmed Ibrahim


Timothy Pollock

Good burger and fries.

Scott Szretter

Looking to play darts on vacation they have two dart boards in a dedicated space. There is a bar area and also a separate dining space. Food was decent. Nice place to go eat, drink and play darts with friends while on a rainy vacation day in Maine.

Shane D'Antimo

They hook you in with the $1 beers and the rest of the drinks are alittle pricey. Yet the food is really good.

Rocko Washington

Best local Pub with great atmosphere and food!

Aaron Rondeau

Police should really look into and keep an eye on how they over serve people to the point of black out and look closer at how they willingly have and will continue to serve underage persons. Trash bar, trash employees.

Joe Flesia

This place is awesome. Foods good too

Abbey Winslow

Nice simple place with good American food.


I stopped here with wife and one year old for lunch. The atmosphere was great and the burgers were PERFECT. I highly reccomend coming here based of my first impression!

Roe Adams

A true institution. One of the last remaining places of pre-gentrification Portland. $1 beer and $5 dinner specials? Can't go wrong. It does feel like a bar that serves food, but that's part of the charm. The burgers are insanely good.

Elisabeth Harris

Great options here, multiple ones for vegetarians! Very eclectic and well located!

Jeremy Grady

Great food, the cooks are outstanding. I can't tell you how many people that I have met who have raved about every bit of food that comes out of that kitchen. Great staff, the servers are all top notch. The doorman was amazing. He was fair, fun and understanding. He kept everyone safe.

Kyla Munro

Good bar food, cheap drinks always busy!

Eileen Sullivan

Great food, service and value!!

Thomas Robbins

Excellent food, service, and the cheap Miller High Life never fails.

sam tarbox

Rosie's is a bastion to the old Old Port. No that's not a mistype. The Old Port was not the nicest portion of Portland, Maine as it stands now. The no frills service, good food, and locals only atmosphere makes it a great bar. Stop in grab a beer and support the vanishing Old Port that used to be scary after the street lights came on.

Alexandra Daniel

Great place to drink and hang out.

Elizabeth Marchant

Had the lobster roll for lunch. Good food but small portions. Good service.

DJ James

First Lobster Roll ever, xoundt have been better! Friendly staff and great service , even to me an obvious tourist!

Pip Scott

Lovely little place, lobster rolls where great and very reasonably priced. Very filling. Cheap decent quality beer is also a bonus. The water front is lovely but it's definitely worth the little walk from the waterfront. Would definitely recommend for anybody who likes cheaper good quality food and cheap beer!

Roger Belmar

Lovely simple ambiance, with great food

Derek Viger

Great food. Can get crowded

Robert Tremblay

Nice staff good burgers

Andrew Burns

Fun place, good food, good drinks

J Clar

Kitchen open till 10:30 on Thanksgiving. Only place in southern Maine still open. $15 for a Thankgiving dinner. Excellent. An Old Port institution! Excellent service.

Katt Black

Never had any problems here until tonight. Been here more times then I can count, always a fun time. Not sure why but tonight the bartender decided to follow me into the bathroom. I was doing my business, actually fixing my makeup in the stall since it’s a pretty small bathroom and it’s awkward to do in front of other people when I noticed she was just standing outside of my door. When I came out she rudely said “YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO THAT SOMEWHERE ELSE”. Obviously implying I was doing drugs or something. When I said “excuse me? I was actually fixing my makeup?!” She rolled her eyes and left. It was really embarrassing and uncomfortable to be accused of something like that out of no where in front of other customers.

Sarah Dee

Wonderful place. Great atmosphere. Attentive wait staff. Delicious food and drinks.

James Canto

Awesome service food and prices

Buzzkill 13

Tasty adult beverages and good pub grub! Great lobster roll for the price too...

Brenton Cochran

The lobster rolls were the bomb. Make sure to get melted butter to dip them in.

griffin gribbel

Rosie's is a solid local dive. Drinks are cheap and they always have great specials going on. This is a great place to get together with friends to have some drinks and play some bar room games.

Robert Miller

Great local food and good service

Christine Gore

Lovely staff, very helpful, great atmosphere. Good pub grub and drinks.

Cathleen Simmons

Good food & service

Luke Brockhoff

Cool little bar! Played darts, listened to music,and drank a few beers.

labby Jane

The food is great, beer was great, environment welcoming.

David Doucette

The teriyaki sliders are possibly the best thing I've ever eaten. Not even kidding!

Sam Parker

Great dive bar, free popcorn

Steven Jefairjian

Low-end in many, many respects. I never liked the atmosphere, the food is mediocre, bathrooms were gross, the drinks are just OK... as are the bartenders. GET IT TOGETHER GUYS!! I can't wait until THREE DOLLAR DEWEY'S reopens, this coming Spring!!

Melinda Frye

This is an old favorite spot to go for us.

Chloe Black

We call it brosies lol. Great place great service. You can play darts or just lounge. Pretty laid back crowd here. More people trying to chill than rage.


Good food and great specials on Tuesday nights! $2 for mixed well drinks, that's a price anyone can afford to make some poor decisions on. Love it!

Art Siegel

Good place to watch the NBA finals.

Melozi Scott

This is a great spot to watch sports games and feel like you're in a hole in the wall or a busy sports bar - just depends on the night

jeffrey dreyfuss

Food was good. Lobster roll a little small but the flavor was there. A little cheaper than other places so it is comparable.

John Bowles

Great lobster roll at a fare price.

Jagdeep Singh

Me and my wife are from Boston ma, visiting Portland. Today, Just happened to see this place. Tried going to in. The bouncer/ door man tried his best to discourage us. His comments: ' do you guys like tator tots? There's a 'five guys' right around the corner'. When he realised we wanted to go in..there was more...but really? That's how you deal with 2 adults(working professionals not drink college kids)? At the end we decided against going in and left. Worst experience and we feel it was a bit racially motivated too because we are an East Indian couple and we saw that anyone who came behind us, he was just letting them in after id checks. No ' there a five guys around the corner'. I wouldn't even give it a single star but google wants me give at least a star.

Sof C

Went to this establishment a few weeks ago and I am completely disappointed with how I was treated. I went, and my ID was broken by the bouncer. I am from out-of-state, and a little after the situation occurred, I went to other establishments and they stated that the way ID's are checked here are antiquated and I would have been reimbursed, should that situation occur at their establishments. I spoke to the bouncer (young and ignorant), and he recognized that my ID was obviously real and that he did indeed break it, but did not take responsibility for his actions. I asked to speak to the bar manager, and she took my number down (never got a call back). Then, the security manager came and was so beyond rude and disrespectful and should be fired for treating people the way he treated me. I have tried calling the establishment multiple times to receive compensation or even just to hear my complaint, and they have failed to do so. Will never return, nor will my colleagues.

Madelene Cyr

Absolute favorite place in Portland!

Melissa Boyer

The food was good n I had fun watching a game. The bartender's were on top of everything.


Slow service. Sat at bar for 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us.

Tamara Jones

Perfect cozy local bar with friendly staff, excellent service, good food, and the best deals in town!

Keith Reeves

Good location, alive and fun.

kyle devine

The bar tenders and security personel are extremely kind and considerate. I have never seen such a bar staff go so far out of their way to ensure your experience is no less than stellar. Consider this establishment for your social sanctuary if you haven't already.

Robert Andres

Pound-for-pound the best place to eat in the Old Port the egg rolls are amazing the service is impeccable and you will never beat Rosie's Burgers always fresh she uses the best me no matter what day of the week you will never have a bad meal or bad service and there's always drink specials you can never go wrong friendly atmosphere great location and a good walk to the beach to burn off some of those calories after

Rachel Shafer

We enjoyed our nighttime experience here. Our server was great, the food is pretty good are drinks were good. However the crowd seemed a little young for us. We are in our mid-30s and the crowd was kind of early twenties. I don't know if that is the vibe all the time or if we just happened to be there on young people's night.

Beth Briggs-MacLeod

I've never had a bad experience at Rosie's! My Dad used to take me there when I was young and it's still a treat today! Great atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food! Best onion rings in the State!

James Stewart

Great food great staff and anything you want the drink under the sun outstanding

Amarjeet Ajmani

Probably if you are not white NO ENTRY for you. Bouncer tried his best not to let us in. So decided to go somewhere else!

Nick DeHaas

Can't go wrong with Rosie's. Free popcorn, $1.50 high lifes, $2 rotating drafts, and great service. I got up Rosie's at least one every time I'm out in Portland.

Sierra Curtis

Cheap beer and great pub food!

Light Biaggi

Good price

Shelly Cohen

Very good place for cheap beer! The rotator is a classic for my friends and I whenever we are looking for something easy and inexpensive. The only thing is that this place is normally packed. So if that turns you off I would not recommend.

DeeJay DeEnay

Pretty decent place, cheap prices, ok food, darts and free popcorn

Rotonia Gates

Drinks on point! Nice environment. People were great with service.

Can't beat the rotator specials, surprised more people don't order that instead of Miller. One night was a stout at $1 and next night was a saison at $1.25.

Gavin Halacy

Great staff, cheap drinks! $1 Miller High-Life and $2 Tuesdays (Short glass mixed drinks)! Egg rolls are home made!

Shawn Graham

The fish and chips are awesome. Beer was cold. Service was perfect. If you like to drink and be loud this is the place for you. Looking for something chill and quiet don't go here.
