I had the Classic Simpson’s Burger with onion rings. It was delicious; I especially liked the combination of onion rings with mayonnaise on the burger. It’s a pretty different combination than what I’ve had, and very tasty. The service was excellent as well!

Went for mid-day lunch. Food, service and prices average. Had a typical tourist area feel. Food was good.

Stopped in after a long day flying. It was quiet (it was after 7 and all the shops were cloaed except LL Bean of course) but the staff was pleasant and the menu was diverse! Would definitely eat here again.

Great spot for lunch. The fire pits out front are great place to take a break from shopping. The chowder and lobster roll were very good as well as the salads and pasta meals

The service was great! Very friendly. The food was amazing and the proportions were large. There is romantic outdoor seating with mini gas powered fire pits built in the table. I would definitely come here again and would highly recommend it.

A stop at Linda Bean's for lunch. Server was attentive and food was wonderful. Beet, walnut and goat cheese salad was perfect

I did see a sign that said they ship lobster in US. Not sure about the rest of the seafood sorry.

I reviewed Linda Bean's Restaurant at the Portland Jetport. It's within the security area and there were lots of seats. I've never been to the restaurant in Freeport, but I do know they have a lovely outside seating area... More
