    Our family includes someone who is vegan, and we greatly appreciate that The Foreside Tavern's menu includes a vegan entree and a vegetarian/vegan sandwich. There is something for everyone on the menu, including an extensive children's menu. The food is always excellent, and our server was excellent even though she was very busy due to Father's Day crowds. We love The Foreside Tavern.

    Went for Father’s Day. Very cold in the restaurant on a day in the 50’s and raining. Had to pull out of the waiter any specials. Like many restaurants the servers are just order takers not salespeople. We received no motivation to order appetizers though we did order some. The haddock chowder was excellent. Tasted like a lobster bisque. A bit skimpy for a bowl of chowder but was excellent Fish & chips were decent. Not a huge portion but reasonable for the price. We also had the Duck which I’m told was just okay. Wanted to try the short ribs but they were out so we had the Rueben. A thin sandwich and it was okay. Not piled high or anything special. The Cole slaw side you get with your meal had no flavor very dry. It needed something whether it’s pineapple to give some sweetness I’m not sure just nothing to write home about. In general I give it a 3 stars. Nothing out of the ordinary. The big issue though is the bathroom - men’s in particular. It smelled like a cat litter box. I suspect the men’s room waterless urinal needs a cartridge change as the ammonia smell nearly killed me. 2 others that came in while I was washing my hands said the same. A dirty bathroom tells you a LOT about the pride the management puts into its product. If you can’t keep the bathroom clean what’s the kitchen like? Overall the place is okay. Would I go back? Maybe for the chowder but the rest of the food was just okay and the service? Well let’s just say it was no better than going to a counter and picking up your food - I’d have as engaging an experience. Restaurants really need to train their staff how to sell! I see it all too often. It’s sad.

    The consistency of the Tavern’s fare is one of the reasons it is my family’s favorite local restaurant. But, the over the top friendliness of the staff, the value, and the always festive atmosphere are equally compelling. One can always expect really quality food, diverse menu, and reasonable prices. And the beer selection is most adequate as well!

    Foreside Tavern used to be significantly better. The menu was standard pub fare with nothing special. Food was tasty enough but not unique or interesting like it used to be. Probably won’t go out of our way for this again. On a positive note our server was fantastic and they had a good wine selection.

    Our family goes to this restaurant very often, twice a month at least. The food, the cocktails, the atmosphere…we love it. But there’s been a couple of time that we have been unlucky with our waiter, both times the same guy. He is definitely not up to the standards of such a nice place. We will keep going and crossing our fingers that he doesn’t work our table.

    Nice dinner outside at the Tavern. We had our usual dinner salads and we continue to enjoy the food. Server was pleasant and efficient even though she had worked a long day in the heat on the first over 80 degree day in Southern Maine this season.

    We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food was, service was excellent and we enjoyed the outside atmosphere. Definitely bring bug spray as the mosquitoes were just starting to come out. In our group we had duck, pan seared haddock, and short ribs which we all thoroughly enjoyed and finished. I also enjoyed a pineapple ginger spritzer which was very refreshing and very gingery. I chose this location that was close to a funeral we were coming from and had outside seating. I felt very comfortable there. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Okay pub grub, with good selection of local brews. Fish and chips was fine but my wife's short ribs left a lot to be desired, in particular in the presentation department. The risotto accompanying it had the texture of grits and was way too salty. I wouldn't mind going back but it's not going on my list of local go-to places for future travel.

    We eat at the Foreside Tavern several times a month. The staff are friendly and the food is pretty consistently good. Right now the prices seem high but that is likely because of inflation.

    Would not recommend to anyone. Service was slow and horrible and not to mention dirty tables. Asked the server if the calamari was good and if it was just rings or tentacles as well. He claimed it was his favorite and that it was just rings. When it arrived it was in fact not what he claimed it was tentacles and it was the saltiest i have ever had. Overcooked an overused old bay and salt was the only thing could tatse. The reuben sandwich was too salty as well. And that was the only flavor if there was even thousand island dressing on it couldnt taste over the salt. Wont be back

    Overall a very pleasing experience. Disappointed that they ran out of duck at 6:30 PM on a Saturday night, I would have thought with the limited number of entrées offered currently, they would have prepared for the weekend. We were happy with all of the food we were able to get. Service was amazing. Lights could be a little lowered at dinner time.
