The Maine Dining Room

162 Main St. , Harraseeket Inn
Freeport , ME , United States http://www.harraseeketinn.com/maine-inn/dining/maine-dining-room
(207) 865-9377

The Maine Dining Room restaurant at downtown Freeport’s Harraseeket Inn is a source of local pride; James Beard Award–winning chef Sam Hayward (now at Fore Street) first helped make a culinary name for the Harraseeket in the early ‘90s, and dishes like halibut encrusted in fresh horseradish and fennel soup with green onion gremolata have kept it on the foodie radar ever since. The restaurant’s string of accolades is only enhanced by its strong commitment to local growers, like Chance Along oysters, Sparky’s honey, and Bowden Farm eggs. The handsomely appointed green-on-white restaurant is, hands down, one of the best spots in town for a truly satisfying gourmet meal. Its lobster fritters doused with tarragon butter and succulent rack of lamb are superb fortifying rewards after a long, hard day of outlet shopping.

Insider Tip: For the ultimate cozy dinner in fall or winter, request a fireside table.
