Tom Hincks - Jameson Tavern (Freeport) from FG
Read this; can anyone comment on recent trips?
Forget about the old reviews for Jameson Tavern, it's under new management now. Former owner of the Fishermen's Grill (Forest Avenue, Portland) Tom Hincks does it again. The food here is outstanding. The fried clams, lobster rolls, clam chowder, haddock, etc. are as good as, if not better than when he was at Fishermen's Grill. The quality, freshness, and attention to detail are top notch as always.
When we found out Tom sold Fishermen's Grill we made the trip from Portland (about 30 min) to visit his new establishment and it was well worth it. The service was very good, and the wait staff was friendly and attentive.
The resturant has about 12 tables inside, a bar and a nice outdoor patio with additional tables. The atmosphere is warm, cozy, and there are a few tv's that you can watch while enjoying your meal or having a few drinks. If you can't quite decide what to eat, since there so many mouth watering choices, I highly recommend the "Allies Trio" (small lobster roll, fries, cup of clam chowder, and a side of fried clams) you won't be sorry. The prices are reasonable for what you get and Tom gives generous portions (you get what you pay for). So if you're in Freeport doing some shopping don't pass up a chance to grab a bite here.
