Great Bloody Mary's. Ok place to fill your belly. Be sure to view the pie case. The fire pit is dangerous.

Ordered the lobster bisque, lobster roll and haddock sandwich. All were great, especially the bisque which was hot and tasty. Thanks for the comfort food!

I sat at the bar and had two apps: the venison sausage and the lobster pockets. I was thrilled and gobbled them up in seconds. The bartender was very friendly along with the rest of the staff. Its the perfect quick stop while shopping Freeport!

I reviewed Linda Bean's Restaurant at the Portland Jetport. It's within the security area and there were lots of seats. I've never been to the restaurant in Freeport, but I do know they have a lovely outside seating area... More
