We enjoyed a shopping spree at L.L. Beans, and then went here for lunch! While the food was excellent, our waiter was superb! He was cheerful, patient, and helpful. We observed him help a fellow waiter pick up after the waiter had dropped a tray....More

Feel the city skape of freeport. Downtown freeport is a bustling area, and local brews abound. Stones throw from maine brew co., grittys brew co, and the infamous shipyard brew co.

My husband and I ate here and I thought the food was good but not great and it was very expensive. I know that LL Bean's daughter originally ran it so I assume we were paying for the name. The dessert I had - coconut...More

We went here on a late Friday night. It wasn't that busy but there was only one server for several tables. It took almost an hour to get our food, which was just average. She did offer us free desserts as compensation. Would not return.More

As this is immediately across the street from LL Bean's main campus, this restaurant is banking on tourists running there because of the family name. Instead, you have lobster rolls that are chewy and not sweet. Worse, you're overpaying for the name; not the quality.

Had a decent wait time, it was freeport during vacation season, but it was good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Not sure I'd say "value" as it wasn't cheap, but it was good.More

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
