An afternoon of outlet shopping and browsing L.L. Bean can work up an appetite. A new seafood-centric restaurant opening on Lower Main Street aims to be there when the hunger hits.
Freeport Seafood Co. Restaurant and Pub is slated to open in Freeport on Monday, June 25, just down the road from L.L. Bean. Chef Emmy Anderson (formerly of Cape Arundel Inn and most recently, Seasons Grille) has prepared a menu that includes some of our favorite seafood standbys (like crumb-coated haddock and whole-belly clams and scallops) and more creatively prepared dishes (such as a unique daily spin on the po' boy). The menu also includes six signature lobster dishes, including Company Lobster Pot Pie and Lobster Mac n' Cheese. Other dishes include a creative spin on the po' boy and classics like crumb-coated haddock and whole-belly clams and scallops.
The restaurant has a full dining room and covered outdoor deck for enjoying the weather and the shopper-watching. And let's not forget the pub menu and cocktails, as well as a beer list that includes some locals.
Located at 175 Lower Main St., Freeport, Freeport Seafood Co. will be open daily at 11:30 a.m. For reservations: 207-865-9105.Tweet
