We we're looking for a nice place to relax, have a drink, and get a bite to eat. Soup, salad, and sandwich fil the bill. The side bar looks like a cosy place to reconnect with friends. Staff was friendly and helpful.

This is a great restaurant. When you walk in restaurant to left, bar to the right. I prefer the bar, fast friendly service, great chowder, blackboard specials. Always stop on my way back from Portland. Highly recommend

Always a good meal with courteous service, reasonably priced. Sometimes we eat in the dining room, sometimes in the pub, and sometimes on the couches!

We stopped at the Foreside Tavern for an early Saturday evening dinner after visiting a relative at an assisted living facility nearby. We were able to get a table without a reservation at 5:00 p.m., but the restaurant definitely filled up quickly, and other times...More
