      I know this is a bit late, but I'm addicted to the Jamaican jerk wings.

          I go there just for the "Shipman's Salmon Sandwich" on fluffy pita bread. Amazing!

          For beer, I usually get the 23 oz. ESB. They may have cask conditioned ale too, although I have yet to try it.

          It must be a good place to work. I have been going there for years and still see the same people.

            Well, I went with the buffalo chicken wrap, which was good. My wife had a steak, which (as predicted), she ordered MR, and it came out M or MW. But, all well worth it for the fun atmosphere and the beer.

            I had to choose between the ESB on cask or the Double Black Diamond stout. I went with the stout, which was excellent. Looking forward to going back again soon.

            And on another note, our kids ran wild and I don't think annoyed too many people. We'll have to add this one to the list of kid-friendly places in the area.

        This thread inspired me to return to Redhook. I again had the wings and they were still great, I tried the salmon pita and that was very good as well. But the main thing I went for was the imperial stout, which I thought was served way too cold and way too weak in body and flavor to be deemed an imperial stout. It was just a step above the Nitro Porter.

        Overall, the food is always above average, inspired pub food, but the Redhook beers always seem to be fairly mainstream. For once I would like to see them go out on a limb and offer a big beer like the “other” local brewery, Smuttynose.

          The food and beer are great at Redhook, but it has developed into a total "Kiddie Bar". If you prefer to eat without the distraction of screaming, badly behaved children running wild, you have a better chance at Chuckie Cheese or McDonalds Playland. Too bad, I used to really like this place.

            I was also there a couple weeks ago and noticed the same thing. Who on earth brings their kids to a brewery?!

              I used to stop there on my way back from Kittery just for their buffalo tenders. They're grilled, not fried and served with banana peppers. Pefect with a pitcher of Widmer.
