We have two very comfortable decks for those who enjoy eating outside, a dining room upstairs and a friendly tavern on the ground floor.   With its casual bar vibe, impressive line of affordable taps and a delicious food menu, Dogfish is a perfect setting for a night of music and fun!

As voted by the Porland Phoenix, The Dogfish Bar & Grille is "The Best Open Mic" in Portland Maine.  Check out what the Phoenix has to say about us:


"Their acoustic open mic is one of the longest running in town and is easily the best and most accessible in the post-Acoustic Coffee/North Star era. " 


"Dogfish is great in that it opens its stage to anybody brave enough to step onto it, regardless of their skill level.  But its strength as a cover-free entertainment spot is that, often times the people that hop behind the open mic, are already extremely talented and unpretentious.  So it's likely that you'll hear something cringe-worthy while you munch on your burger. With the longest running open mic show in town, Dogfish also has reliability going for them."



Wednesday through Saturday we have the best line-up of live music in Southern Maine! Between our amazing local and nationally known artists, the Dogfish Bar & Grille is your destination for great music, food, drink and atmosphere!
