Linda Bean's was the perfect breakfast stop. A nice sidewalk cafe, really good food, and reasonable prices.

It's nice that they have three sizes of lobster rolls, as they are very expensive and getting the junior size helps with your budget. The junior is just half a roll, but it's piled pretty high with lobster, so you get your money's worth. They don't have much else for non-lobster fans, but their grilled cheese hit the spot with...

But my wife, who swore she did not like lobster was convinced to order the lobster roll. Not cheap at around $20 (you can order a junior one for half). But with the... More

Food is above average, but a little pricey. It's an LLBean classic, though, and has become a family tradition whenever we're in the Freeport area.

The seafood and the lobster are the things here. Shellfish is the specialty and you will not be disappointed.

We thought the lobster roll here was just fine. It was not a great day, and we needed to grab something quick. This hit the spot. We loved the vinegar potato chips with it!

Good choice if you feel like a piece of mile high Lemon Merengue Pie! Skip the Lobster Mashed Potatoes, not worth it, too much butter and cream. Not served as shown on the menu either.
