The Freedom has one of the best locations in Naples but it unfortunately leaves a lot to be desired. Parking is a problem. The décor is very nice; although I do sometimes get nostalgic for the old run down general store I remember from when I was a kid.
The menu isn’t bad but it’s limited. It seems almost every dish has lobster incorporated somehow. For someone who isn’t a huge seafood fan, this poses a problem. I have been in several times this summer because I do enjoy sitting out on the deck, but every single time there has been something wrong with my order. There has been a marked improvement over the quality of the food but I am still somewhat frustrated over the errors in my order 100% of time. It’s not my favorite, but I risk mistakes for the location.
On the entertainment side, I have seen some good (acoustic) bands in there. I’m a Karaoke fan but I have yet to find a host worthy of praise. (The fellow singers though? Not even kidding, some should go pro!) One host there had a book with a list that accidentally got sorted by artist and left out the rest of the columns from the sort…rendering it useless. The most recent host had a book of songs. That’s it. No corresponding artists, nothing. Not to mention they had about 10% of the amount of songs a decent host would have available.
This place has potential but it’s just not there yet. Definitely better than it was, but I’m still not ready to sing its praises.
