Crisp & hot French fries- and the strawberry/feta salad was very tasty and well constructed with crunchy candied pecans. Neighborhood jem!

We finally made it on a Sunday to have their prime rib, and it was well worth it. They only serve the prime rib on Sunday after 4:00 and it was a great treat. Although the restaurant industry has been short-staffed since the pandemic, this did not affect their service or the quality of their food. Our server, Burt, was very personable and attentive. This is a great place to get quality food, and I would highly recommend it.

Love this restaurant...wait staff is always prompt, pleasant and accomodating. The burgers are so good. It's always a pleasure to dine here with friends. I was surprised to learn there were no gluten free bread options for one of my companions.

Great place to eat.
Food is great— especially the pan fried haddock and the nachos.
It is close to our house, so good neighborhood restaurant.
Outdoor patio seating is great.
Also casual enough to take our 1 year old grandchild and her parents. Everyone is super nice.

We have lived here for over 20 years and this was hands down one of the worse meals we have ever had! Who can screw up a Caesar Salad! It was disgusting mayonnaise based Caesar?

The salmon was so salty that halfway through the meal my hands were swelling.

It was gross!

Salmon and mussels were cooked to perfection! The outdoor patio was comfortable and charming. The wait staff was pleasant and accommodating. The inside is definitely a tavern, dark, smells like old wood, sports bar meets olde English pub.

Foreside Tavern is one of the best pub/tavern restaurants in Maine, in my opinion. Always consistent and just easier to enjoy vs the "uppity" restaurant scene in the Old Port. Great food and drinks in a low key friendly atmosphere. They make the best nachos in Maine hands down. They are large, though! Good beer selection. Great salads (usually I get with grilled salmon). Reuben is also a great choice. And the best best staff! Ryan is in a class by himself as a waiter and we usually ask for him. Professional. Remembers what we like. Super cool and awesome person through and through. The whole staff is superb. Put Foreside on your list!

We recently moved to Maine and in our travels we always passed by this restaurant. We finally decided that we needed to eat there and are we glad that we did. My husband and the Reuben and just loved it. The best part of the evening was the interaction with our server Ashley. She has the perfect temperament to be a server. She was witty and very efficient.

food was very good, but expensive. Service was good, but not forgot a couple of items. The place was very plain which was why the prices were a bit surprising.

There were 4 of us for dinner. We chose to eat inside where the tables were far apart. Wait staff all worse masks and were very "COVID" aware in their presentation and service.
It was a very nice night with no worries of being too close to others, etc.
Foreside has done a great job!

Had the Cobb salad, which was very good. Needed a bit more dressing. Readily provided but at an extra charge - not necessary in my opinion. Wait staff was attentive but likely short staffed and running hard - did a nice job under the circumstances. Will go back.

This has been one of the restaurants where my family has been going for years. We live nearby, the food is very good and the atmosphere is great. But yesterday we weren’t as pleased as usual. Our waiter Ryan L was awful, very rude. Never seen anything like that in this restaurant in particular or any other for that matter. We will go back there for sure and we will cross our fingers that he is not working that shift.
