I headed to Jameson Tavern for a lobster dinner at the recommendation of the front desk staff at my hotel. I was not disappointed!

Jameson Tavern dates back to the late 1700s, and there’s a nice vibe in the bar and dining room. Not too stuffy, not too historic, just a super comfortable place to visit and order drinks and/or dinner. It’s not fancy – no table cloths or fancy table settings – but it fits.

I ordered a 1.5 lb. steamed lobster, with asparagus on the side, and both arrived piping hot and super tasty. There was a short by workable wine list, too.

Whether you’re dining with friends, family, or solo (as I was), Jameson is just a comfy place with super friendly staff – kind of like a Cheers, for lobster (and other dishes)! My only beef would be about the price -- $35.99 for a steamed 1.5 lb lobster is a bit steep, particularly for this area. Not sure where you can get it less expensive in Freeport, though.

Enjoy…

Lobster roll, New England clam chowder, local beer -- what could be better? It was crowded on a Saturday night, but the wait wasn't terrible (30 minutes) and the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Enjoy the beer selection and the nachos. Menu does not vary much, some of the specials have been excellent. Menu seems to need a bit of an update.

Went up to visit the LL Bean stores this weekend and needed a place to eat lunch. Jameson's was in walking distance and decided to try it out.
The inside is just a great Pub setting and was very friendly. Not a ton of seating but we were able to get into the lunch seating
Just have to say the waitress that we had was fantastic. Very attentive, very knowledgeable and always there when we needed her
The menu is very good and has some length to it. The local beer menu could have been longer considering they are in one of the best areas of the country but I am nitpicking.
I had a chicken Reuben. It was a massive sandwich with a great portion of great tasting fries. The chicken breast was done perfectly, the slaw was flavorful, and the bread was fresh and out of this world. Could not have asked for better
My wife had a crab roll that had an enormous portion of crab on it. Much more than you would think for a very reasonable price.
I recommend this place highly on all levels and will go back anytime we are in the area

Sat at the bar, enjoyed a spicy Bloody Mary, mussels and the seared scallops... all was very good. And watched some Sunday football.
