We have driven by Foreside Tavern maybe a hundred times, seen the full parking lot, and said. "one day." Well, that day finally came. We went for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised. We were seated at a rickety, rocking table, and were swiftly...More

Just a hop, skip and a jump south of the I-295 north of Portland, this place has the feel of a countryside tavern with a great kitchen. We were there with a group for a special occasion on a Saturday night. We started outside with...More

Foreside Tavern is an outstanding restaurant. Great food! I have been there for lunch on several occasions. They have a very good selection on their menu from juicy burgers to broiled salmon.

My boyfriend and I found this restaurant by chance and what a find! Crab cakes were excellent (and I don't eat seafood-just sampled my bf's and loved it!) I had Cobb salad-chicken breast is cold (on purpose) and I'm not used to but had great...More

I stop by at the tavern and ordered the fish and chips from the lunch menu. The service was fast and professional, however, my first piece of fish was very cold in the center. When the server came by to check in I mentioned this...More

The burgers are great, and the nachos are great as well. The nachos are piled high, and not too spicy.
