Arrived late to Freeport....needed to eat some light fare...recommended by our Air B&B hosts...shared the sliders--add pepper jack cheese--tasty!!! Also shared the Middle Eastern plate--the falafel were probably frozen but the rest was fresh. A gin and tonic and a glass of wine were typical. Smooth vegan chocolate mouse was surprisingly delicious. Our server, Jennifer provided very good service and... More

You can do much much better in Brunswick. On a Friday, with the restaurant less than half full, it took 90 minutes to bring us our dinner. We waited 20 for the server to take our order, and the never saw her again for refills. The food was average - no better than a TGI Fridays. Would not return here.

The food here is great and it is a great atmosphere. Prices are a little high but the food was worth it. The wait staff needs additional training for appropriate appointments like silverware and bowls to accompany a meal.

Stopped in for lunch with a friend. We wanted a glass of pinot grigio only to find they had a total of 4 white wines none of which was a pinot. The waitress suggested the house wine was close....I guess she didn't know wines since it was terrible. Not wanting a salad but a sandwich the menu had very few... More

My wife and I were passing thru Brunswick and saw the great reviews for this restaurant on trip advisor. It's not easy to find, but is located in a huge brick building with the name Cabot on the tower. Our server Andy was terrific and we enjoyed a hamburger and fish sandwiches. They have a great adult beverage selection as... More

Great food~Great cocktails~Great service~Great entertainment~Great fun! Frontier has something for everyone including delicious cod and calamari lightly coated in rice flour batter and delicately fried. Not only is it scrumptious, it's gluten free too! The cocktails feature fresh ingredients and many items on the menu are locally sourced-just like they should be. After dinner, watch one of their Indy films... More

This place has a great ambience and atmosphere with a good view and an open feel to it. The food is all prepared and delivered in an exquisite manner. The beverage selection is extensively good. The cost is moderate, but fully worth it. Local music is available on Wednesday and adds to the overall appeal. This is the restaurant I... More
