Made last minute reservations as we just came into town. Most accomodating. The greeters were pleasant and welcoming. The bar service was quick and tasty. And Deen, our waiter, was a godsend. The muscles were fantastic. The seafood gumbo was to die for. And the lobster ravioli was beyond compare. Would definitely go back

My friend knew I wanted a restaurant that served what Mainers call Lobster Stew. It's not really a stew - just plenty of fresh lobster chunks swimming in cream sherry. SO DELICIOUS! It's very rich and very filling - especially the 16 oz. size. (But so worth it). There were lots of good choices on the menu at various price... More

We stopped in between lunch and dinner, with a limited menu as we were told the kitchen transitions for the dinner menu, so were a bit disappointed with the selections (3:00- 4:00). That being said, the items we had were delicious. The lobster stew was amazing. The mussels were fantastic and the broth extraordinary. The fries are crispy and salted... More

Reservations recommended! The locals say this place is consistently packed and consistently good. The chowder with apple smoked bacon was a standout.

We dropped in on this restaurant after looking at reviews. It is slightly off the beaten track overlooking a harbour. It was nearly dark bu the time we arrived and looked very busy. We were shown to a table overlooking the harbour and our waitress arrived shortly after. We ordered drinks, craft ale and water and settled into the menu.... More

Royal River Grillhouse is tucked away but worth finding. We went for Sunday brunch this past week and it was delicious. The restaurant is right on the water in a boat yard and is beautiful inside with great views. The staff was very friendly and prompt and attentive. My wife loves breakfast and I don't so much so Brunch menus... More

We were in town today for a sporting event and used TA to find this place and it was fantastic. The most outrageous Bloody Mary I have ever had! I will definitely make the 6 min drive from Freeport the next time am in town for shopping!

If you don't have a boat you might not find this place. It started out as a sardine factory many years ago. A small restaurant at one time the newest of owners has updated decor. The bar is just the right size and there's nooks and seating areas to make anyone feel like staying beyond eating. There's outside dining with... More
