Brunch at Broad Arrow Tavern, Freeport

Is the buffet brunch worth the $25 pp price tag if you are rather petite and prefer quality over quantity? We are staying in a B&B so will probably eat breakfast there, but need a lunch spot around 1pm. Are reservations wise? We would rather wait and see if we are hungry enough for a buffet at that point. I love lobster but BF would prefer something on the sweet side of breakfast. He's a sucker for good french toast.

    As far as I know, the Broad Arrow Tavern does not serve a "brunch" buffet. (The other resto at the Inn, The Maine Dining Room, serves very elaborate Sunday brunch.)

    The Tavern does serve a "lunch" buffet, Mon-Sat starting at 11:30. This is *in addition* to the lunch menu. So you won't find French Toast at 1pm but would be able to choose between burgers, pizzas, fish/seafood, salads and sandwiches on a very varied menu.

    I often do recommend Broad Arrow as the standout spot in Freeport for "upscale/casual" lunch and dinner. They do not take reservations (last time I checked) but will put your name on a waiting list if you call ahead.

    When will you be visiting? The Haraseeket Lunch and Lobster opens around May 1st and is a classic "lobster pound" right on the harbor in South Freeport. Can be a good spot to hit for lobster, etc. (but gets mobbed during July/Aug prime time).

      Thanks for the clarification. I guess I was referring to the brunch in the Maine Dining Room, which is $24.95 and includes lobster. Is it worth checking out? How busy do they tend to get?

        The Maine Room serves a very high quality "traditional" Sunday brunch so, yes, worth checking out. They will be crowded during summer season and on specific events days (e.g. Easter, Mom's Day). They do take reservations.
