I believe that this is a farm to table restaurant. They try to be as local and fresh as possible. The food is a little on the pricey end for what's available. Limited menu, but good food. The service could have been faster, but they were nice enough

Frontier definitely provides a better-than-average eating experience. The food is local and contemporary and will appeal to folks with many different tastes. Moreover, the room has a spectacular view of the Androscoggin. However, they've had a long history of really slow service and (friendly) servers that (sometimes badly) mess up orders. We've often hesitated to go because of the serving... More

We stopped in for a late dinner probably one of the last tables of the night. The service was excellent and timely. The food was prepared and presented well. The staff showed no interest in rushing us out being that we were the last table in the restaurant. We will be back again and again!

Went here for the first time tonight with an old friend. We really loved it! The atmosphere was great. The lighting was perfect. We had some delicious drinks to start off and the food we ordered was so tasty. We enjoyed the place so much that we decided to stay for dessert and a second drink. I had the vegan... More

We had dinner here twice in one week. The menu is varied enough to please everyone, even Vegans. We ordered the half-size salads, and they were almost big enough to be a main course. Excellent use of local ingredients throughout. The mussels-with-Chorizo appetizer was very tasty and big enough to be a main course. The Vegan Nachos with cashew "cheese"... More

They have changed the menu again, it's still very good. Love the fact that some of the wait staff has been there for more than 2 years. We keep going back and have a good meal each time and the service is very good.

I liked the food fine, it wasn't spectacular, but it was fine. The atmosphere was amazing. The waitress and bartender were great, although I was told the vegan mousse tasted just like actual mousse and I'd never be able to tell it was vegan. I could totally tell. However I know that a lot of people, especially in the area,... More

Lunch here, while visiting during Bowdoin's Family Weekend, was aesthetically pleasing inside and out. Food was well prepared and portions were generous. Our waitress was attentive but gave us time to enjoy our food and each other's company.
