“Great location, decent variety, but average overall”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is part of the Hampton Inn hotel & located in an area of dowtown Portland that is a skip, hop, & a jump away from so many different places. There was a major snowstorm a few days ago & we conveniently went downstairs without braving the elements to grab a bite at Sebago's on the first floor. We ordered caesar salad ( which was so so, nothing to write home about), calamari with peppers in a red tomato sauce (wasn't really good), thai sauced chicken wings (would not recommend), pork dumplings (something I'd recommend) & fish bites (something I would order again). I also ordered the blueberry pie with ice cream the following night & although the filling was good, parts of the crust were a little stale & chewy. Two others from my group ordered the chocolate peanut butter dessert & they said it unfortunately wasn't that great. The atmosphere on the other hand was good. The service seems okay, but I think it depends on who you get. One night the waitress we had brought a table of 8 a regular pitcher of water & 8 glasses...which would have been fine, except the pitcher only filled 1.5 cups. Not sure i'd recommend the place if you're not already staying at the Hampton Inn. Otherwise, its a decent enough place to have drinks and maybe some appetizers - not for a full meal, if you're driving in. It really does more for the hotel, in terms of amenities, than it does for itself as a standalone restaurant.

“Definitely worth the visit”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Went there for lunch last weekend. The food was very good as was the beer and service. The best part of the meal was the warm pretzel appetizer...had to have been the best pretzels I have ever had!

“Love, Love, Love”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I eat here very often. They are conveinant, moderatley priced, and you get plentiful servings (enought to take some extra home) They have fabulous service, and the actual restaurant has a great atmosphere. The food is good, but I do find that I usually have to add salt, pepper and maybe some other seasonings to make it a little less bland. But it is still very good!
