Arrived in Freeport, Maine late in the afternoon. After some shopping it was time to grab a meal. We checked out 2 other sites before crossing the street to Linda's, what a treat. No waiting, rustic, but warm atmosphere. We sat upstairs, it was threatening rain so we said no to the deck (thunder storm so arrived). I had the crab salad roll, it was moist, well seasoned and a large serving. We also had the lobster roll, cooked to our request (warm with melted butter). We finished with the warm blueberry pie. A simple, good meal with attentive service; we will return.

Two floor restaurant with outdoor and indoor seating on both levels. No wait when we arrived after dinner time. Table was still needing prepared for us and waitress didn't notice once we were seated (table wiped and napkins and silverware placed). Waitress was kind and helpful letting us know the one dish would take approx. 15 minutes. My wife loved the unique dipping sauces (blueberry BBQ sauce) with the chicken strip meal. We spent $44 for appetizer, 2 meals, tip, and drinks.

We were definitely hungry and the food filled us up but it was nothing special. Service was only average.

Just ate dinner there tonight. Did not get our drink order correct. Ordered blueberry and got something else, don't think they believed they gave us the wrong beer. Lobster Mac and Cheese was very average, have had better othee places.

It was fun to enjoy our last dinner in Freeport sitting out on the upper porch and watching other evening strollers. Our waiter was inexperienced but took good care of us.
