The food was average and not something that I would run back for. The lobster was a bit below average. The staff was nice, and the outdoor seating was nice.

I ate here twice during my trip to Freeport. You order your food at the counter and then sit inside or out where ever you choose. They have music outdoors on the weekend. It is a nice place to sit and relax and people watch while you eat. The lobster rolls are good. Fries nice and crispy. Cole slaw good. Crab cakes also good. The lobster bisque was tasty and had many chunks of lobster in it however some of the lobster was chewy. I would recommend this place and would probably return.

Limited menu of strictly excellent food! The best lobster bisque I have ever had, loaded with flavor and big chunks of lobster served piping hot! Fish & Chips were excellent, especially the homemade fries. Open and airy spot with great character. Will visit every time I am in Freeport!!!

Stopped twice, going north and back south on a road trip. Clam chowder excellent, and lobster bisque equally so. So it is not a glamorous restaurant, but you are in and out and fab well and quickly. Perfect for during that outlet shapping binge.
