Classic average food

Friendly but standard fare in a slightly cramped space. One feels very welcome and relaxed. Reasonably priced.

This small restaurant is a perfect lunch spot in Freeport - we have gone there many times and always leave happy. the salads are fresh and good with wonderful homemade dressing. Desserts are not overblown monster fake whipped cream extravaganzas that all the restaurants seem to make today - instead they offer delicate warm gingerbread with real whipped cream and... More

On a side street in the heart of Freeport, the Corsican quickly became our favorite lunch spots in this bustling town of designer outlets. It is located in a vintage house and on two levels...al fresco, when the weather is warm and sunny. No real parking...we always park on the street, but there are free parking lots nearby. The menu...

We had lunch here following a shopping spree at LL Bean. It was about 2:30 PM, but several tables were still occupied. Corsican has the best clam chowder in Maine. No doubts, as I have enjoyed Maine clam chowder from Lubec to Kittery over a span of nearly 50 years. The sandwiches were excellent too ! For lunch, you can't... More

Wonderful fish and clam chowder. Tons of fish and the broth was thin which I prefer. Minestrone was wonderful too! We took our soups to go. The Dining room was small and homey looking.

We ate here for lunch one day. We both got a pizza. My husband got the meat lovers and I got the vegetarian with a gluten free crust. They were both delish! Thoroughly enjoyed them. Cooked well and lots of toppings. Great looking menu. Would definitely recommend.
