We recently ate here on a Monday for lunch. The food is always very consistent no matter what time of the year it is. We had the turkey and avocado sandwich with real turkey which my wife loved. I had a tuna melt, which was very good and the special soup of the day which was onion. The onion soup... More

My Mom and I found this pretty much by getting a bit lost in Freeport due to construction detours. We were hungry and trying to get to a place off Main street, but decided to give this restaurant a try. It has become our all time favorite each time we head down to Freeport for a day of shopping.

The Corsican is my "go-to" restaurant in Freeport. There's always an interesting item or a new twist on an old stand-by. Excellent wine selection by the glass or bottle.

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...
