Restaurant Notes:

Thistle & Grouse is a Gastropub with an emphasis on sourcing the highest quality seafood, meats, produce, and craft beer within the State of Maine. Our menu is seasonally driven by what is freshest from our local farming & foraging partners. We use those ingredients to craft a elevated, from scratch, comfort food menu. Our bar program is craft Beer/Cocktail centric with 28 Maine Craft Beers, and a approachable quality driven wine list.

Our restaurant is located on historical Cotton St, in the Old Port, situated Commercial St. & Congress St. We are just around the corner from the Cross Insurance Arena, Aura Event & Music Club, and a Block away from bustling Fore St.

We are in a 130-year-old brick building that once housed a hay barn as well as the old Rivalries Sports Bar. Chef/Owner Bobby Will & Managing Partner Kimberly Kraus have renovated the old brick building interior to resemble a Scottish Private Study/Library with a new hard wood bar, reclaimed red brick, antique brass chandeliers & pendant lighting, and antique art the reflects the history of Maine.

We will have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options during restaurant week. Ask your server for suggestions or please feel free to call ahead.
