Waited for a seat, waited over 45 minutes for food. Waitress hardly ever checked up on us and didn’t even serve water. Crab cakes tasted frozen. Clam bellies were meh. Finnan Haddie was decent. This place would have gotten a pass had it been inside...More

Located in downtown Freeport, this restaurant was a solid choice for lunch. It was busy and we did have to wait, but the time went fast. The menu has a wide range of lobster choices. The staff was friendly and helpful, despite the busy activity...More

Over hyped due to connection with llbean...had terrible experience at dinner with a rude waitress who served stale, soggy fried calamari and was unapologetic and defensive. Turned out another customer had similar experience and eventually the manager had to sort it out. Overall it was...More

There is a LOT of seafood and fish on the menu. If you don't like seafood or fish, this isn't the place for you. I got the hot dogs - you can only buy 2, which is too much. They come plain, and the server...More

The food wasn't necessarily the greatest but good tasting and huge portions. Not a fan of lemon meringue pie but theirs was huge.

We had the best desert. Melanie provided us great service. Haddock sandwich was pretty good. Sat in bar area tables are very tight so not comfortable. Prices little high but you are paying to be across street from ll bean.

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
