Main Street Bistro closed and Martinis on Main opened in its place. No more draft beers, only bottles. Sandwiches, burgers, and pizza for food. This place has been open for a week. Adjacent to the Hampton but disappointing that there are not more options on the menu.

This place is a treasure in downtown Freeport! I'll definitely be going back here! There was a blues band during dinner that was a lot of fun! An Excellent time and great service.

No seasonings at all in fries or fish. Muzak conflicted with a live guitar player in the adjacent bar/lounge.

This is a cozy restaurant with really good food. The service is really good, and they have live music like a guitarist on the weekends.

This was a great restaurant right at the Hampton Inn. The food came out quick and the service was great. It has a very nice feel for a bar and bistro. I had the special duck Ruben. It was exceptional if you are into game type food. I will go back if I have the chance.

Pretty good, had a little trouble getting the hostess' attention, but once we were seated, service was very good. Ordered a chicken sandwich and soup, sandwich pretty good, soup would have been better with less pepper, but I guess that's a matter of taste. Good selection of beer.

Let me start by saying that the place looks great. It's conveniently located at the Hampton Inn and I thought the staff did a good job. For my main course, I had the blackened salmon which was delicious ($18.99). The problem I had was with the salad. First off it was almost laughably small, it made me remember why I... More
