This is an upscale dining experience where you can have Caesar salad or crepes for dessert prepared table side. You can choose from chateau briand, rack of lamb or lobster among other tempting treats. One can order a huge presentation of lobster meat, shrimp, oysters, etc. or a simple crock of lobster stew. Simply scrumptious!

We ate here New Year's Eve and though the Dining room was busy we had an outstanding dinner. The service was great, the food selection and preparation was more than adequate. If in Freeport make a point of eating at the Maine Dining Room.

When we stay at the Harraseeket Inn on a Sunday night, we always have dinner in the Maine Dining Room. The menu changes frequently so we never have the same choices from one year to the next. This time I had the salmon which was delicious. My husband had the chicken, but he said it was just OK. The service... More

20th anniversary dinner at the Maine Harvest....initially the server seemed attentive but drifted away. We never received additional drinks ordered, never received water refills from our server. While paying tab, another server offered.

This is a wonderful restaurant for a special dinner. Very relaxing ambiance with fireplace in the main dining room and good separation between tables for quiet conversation. We both loved our choices. I had a ceasar salad and a seafood melange as main dish which had scallops, mussels, salmon and lobster with a coconut sticky rice and green curry sauce.... More

We were staying at the Inn so we thought we'd dine at the restaurant. We were led to believe it was a white tablecloth type establishment. Not so. While nice, it is an average dining room with low ceilings. Burlap covered tables. Entrees average. Polenta cold. Server nice, but below par wine list. Wouldn't go back.

On our way to Bar Harbor for a wedding, we decided to break up the trip with a stop in Freeport. An old friend lives nearby so we invited him to join us. The Maine Harvest restaurant is the fine dining room of the Harraseeket Inn. The food was creative and nicely plated. Oysters were ordered and the mignonette sauce... More

Description
Our waitress forgot our coffee & lines were long for popovers/prime rib otherwise I would have given 5 stars for service/ambiance. This was our 2nd time. Celebrating my b'day weekend. We were here a year ago & absolutely loved it. The variety of food from lobsters, prime rib, eggs cooked in various ways, dansom plum champagne infused smoothie soup with creme with mint to the absolutely yummy chocolate decadence cake, blueberry pie & so many other desserts are only some of food served at this delicious Sunday brunch. We will definitely go there again next time we're in Freeport, Maine. It's in the Harraseeket Inn. I've had Sunday brunches at other 5 star hotels in USA including Hawaii, Europe, Japan & Canada but this brunch beats them all
