We try to get up here once a year, their All you can eat Sunday brunch is that good! Considering it includes lobster and other chef prepared dishes, $ 39.00 is reasonable. It has been rated # 1 in Maine for many years. They cut their delicious lobsters in half to make it easy to enjoy with the melted butter.... More

Tucked away in the Inn is a delightful little secret. The Maine dining room. It offers a quaint bar and excellent dining. If available, try the chateau for two, Wow !

We usually eat in the Maine Dining Room during our visits to the Harrasekett Inn, this year was a bit of a surprise, they have done away with table side preparation, and most of the wait staff is new, Will give the staff an 'A" for effort but not quite as good as the former staff. The menu is definitely... More

Ordered a bottle of wine before the meal, the waitress brought it to the table and asked if we were sure we wanted a full bottle. Then rather than allowing one of us to taste the wine, she poured two full glasses and set the bottle on the table (white wine) which should have been kept chilled. When we made... More

My husband and I stayed at the Harraseeket Inn during our visit to Freeport. When we booked our room directly with the inn over the phone we were told that since we booked this way we would receive complimentary breakfast buffet and afternoon tea each day of our visit. Well, the breakfast buffet was really, really good. The buffet is... More

This is an upscale dining experience where you can have Caesar salad or crepes for dessert prepared table side. You can choose from chateau briand, rack of lamb or lobster among other tempting treats. One can order a huge presentation of lobster meat, shrimp, oysters, etc. or a simple crock of lobster stew. Simply scrumptious!

We ate here New Year's Eve and though the Dining room was busy we had an outstanding dinner. The service was great, the food selection and preparation was more than adequate. If in Freeport make a point of eating at the Maine Dining Room.

When we stay at the Harraseeket Inn on a Sunday night, we always have dinner in the Maine Dining Room. The menu changes frequently so we never have the same choices from one year to the next. This time I had the salmon which was delicious. My husband had the chicken, but he said it was just OK. The service... More

We had dinner & brunch at the Maine dining room in the Harraseeket Inn. Dinner was the best meal of our vacation. My husband had the maple glazed salmon and I had the haddack. They were both delicious & cooked to perfection. The waitress was prompt & attentive. We had brunch here the following morning. It was usual New England... More

Our waitress forgot our coffee & lines were long for popovers/prime rib otherwise I would have given 5 stars for service/ambiance. This was our 2nd time. Celebrating my b'day weekend. We were here a year ago & absolutely loved it. The variety of food from lobsters, prime rib, eggs cooked in various ways, dansom plum champagne infused smoothie soup with creme with mint to the absolutely yummy chocolate decadence cake, blueberry pie & so many other desserts are only some of food served at this delicious Sunday brunch. We will definitely go there again next time we're in Freeport, Maine. It's in the Harraseeket Inn. I've had Sunday brunches at other 5 star hotels in USA including Hawaii, Europe, Japan & Canada but this brunch beats them all
