Amazing food and staff!

This was recommended to us by a local who said the food and drinks were awesome. He wasn't lying. The food was delicious. The best fish and chips I've ever had. Their batter is insane! Crispy and crunchy with a really nice flavor. Our server, Andy, was great. He was really friendly and gave us some... read more

We were looking for a good meal on our last night in Maine and Frontier was perfect. From the outside, it is in a huge converted textile mill and we were wondering what were getting ourselves into. After wandering through the building to the back, we come to the restaurant. Wow. We had the Frontier Mule (Moscow Mule with Beet... More

Good atmosphere, good food - would definitely recommend. Probably a little overpriced but I loved my Mediterranean plate. We had our 1 year old with us but I would probably rather come back for a date night.

Great food, great atmosphere, great decor! There were also many great local options! I love The Mozz sandwich and their handcut, thincut fries are to die for! The homemade pickle that comes with the meal is also fantastic!

We had dinner at the Frontier Cafe on a Friday night. The place was very busy. I'd suggest reservations. The server was exceptional, glad to offer advice, knew the menu and beverage offerings well and offered helpful advice. The Maine potato fries were a wonderful shared entree. The fish and chips plate with sweet potato fries contained a huge portion... More

We had lunch at the Frontier Cafe on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was crowded but we were able to walk in and be seated immediately. In retrospect, this is a place where reservations should be made in advance. The fish sandwich is very highly recommended - it is a lightly fried piece of cod served with the most incredible...

We have been visiting the Frontier Cafe for quite some time as it is near where we live. It seems the last 3 times we have been more and more disappointed. They have removed most of our favorite items from the menu. Our last visit the only favorite left was the fish and chips. My husband and I both ordered... More

We heard great reviews for this place, but it didn’t live up to our expectations. Falafel were fresh, but texture was wrong. The tomato-saffron soup special was overspiced with something neither of us could identify. The mussels were also strangely flavored. Moroccan Vegetable Napoleon was ok, though the kale with it was really tough. My date’s fancy drink (I forget... More

We enjoy evenings here. The food is fine, nice selection of wines. As has been said besides being a good eatery for couples, families, friends the art work and entertainment just add to fun and enjoyment of an evening here,

Been here several times and never gotten a bad dish or service. Frontier is unique in that it equally is acceptable for families, friends, and dates alike. The decor is breathtaking, both in natural beauty as well as the cute (and often thought-provoking) art they hang in their ample dining space. The menu offers dishes not found elsewhere in Southern... More
