Interesting place.

The space is really artistic and cool. The food is pretty good. The service seemed a bit lost and run down. The atmosphere is a little too cafeteria like. The drinks are creative and interesting.

I love the atmosphere at this restaurant in an old mill. Relax by the large windows and take in the scenery or enjoy a movie, local music, variety of art programs. I love a cup of coffee or glass of wine and watch one of a variety of movies in a small theater, old, but comfortable seats and tables. Order... More

We love to eat at Frontier. The atmosphere is great; the food is fresh, interesting, and delicious. They have a selection of gluten free/vegitarian foods as well. You can even eat your meal (or dessert or have a drink) while watching movie in the small theater off the main restaurant. (There is no peripheral noise.) The service is good overall,... More

Great casual, but charming setting, charming, not generic, well-considered menu, great for family and dates alike... bonus quiet spot for entertainment/non-mainstream movies. They always source out local food/farms, have a reliable, permanent menu with specials that are hit-or-miss, but always inventive, and the pick-your-own meat and cheese plate is always a good option for a surprisingly filling snack. Likewise, the... More

Frontier is one of our favorite places in town. The food is always solid, the drinks are creative and really tasty and the location/ambiance doesn't get any better. The only complaint that I would have is that it would be nice to get a few more seasonal choices to update the menu which after frequent visits does get stale.

Have eaten here twice and loved it both times, especially the sweet potato fries. Great views over the river.

The Frontier has evolved over the past few years into a great gem. The building is beautiful, the views are great and the food/drinks are yummy. We love the local inventory and healthy alternatives. We have had a few staff that seemed like they didn't know much or maybe didn't care to be there- but for the most part the... More

Just ate here for lunch. Love the restored mill spaces you can find in Maine and I think it was a nice view but we were far from a window. We ordered a hamburg with bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato. I thought it was a bit pricey at $14.50. We asked for medium, which I consider pink. The order got... More

My kids and I met my parents here for dinner and other than it being a little loud for the older folks, it was great fun. Service was pleasant, the lobster roll was great. What beat all, though, as the fact that my dad could take my kids outside to the bridge to look at the river while we waited... More

this place has really improved in all areas in the last 5 years. drinks are always spot on. menu has developed into a great balance of creativity and selection. I've been in several times a year and the service has always been attentive and friendly. I would go in more if they brought back brunch.
