“Great shopping stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

After shopping at LL Bean, we stopped here for a quick lunch. It was a beautiful day so we ordered our Lobster Bisque, and sat outside to enjoy the meal. I have to say, the bisque was tasty with bits of lobster and a hint of wine. Yes, it was good, and just enough to keep us going to the other Freeport shops. So if you are looking for a quick bite to eat between shopping, stop here. They have plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The food was average and not something that I would run back for. The lobster was a bit below average. The staff was nice, and the outdoor seating was nice.

“Good casual dining in Freeport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I ate here twice during my trip to Freeport. You order your food at the counter and then sit inside or out where ever you choose. They have music outdoors on the weekend. It is a nice place to sit and relax and people watch while you eat. The lobster rolls are good. Fries nice and crispy. Cole slaw good. Crab cakes also good. The lobster bisque was tasty and had many chunks of lobster in it however some of the lobster was chewy. I would recommend this place and would probably return.

“Best Lobster Bisque in the world!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Limited menu of strictly excellent food! The best lobster bisque I have ever had, loaded with flavor and big chunks of lobster served piping hot! Fish & Chips were excellent, especially the homemade fries. Open and airy spot with great character. Will visit every time I am in Freeport!!!
