[Freeport] Jameson Tavern

In amongst the variety of Freeport’s retail opportunities, is this tavern. It dates from 1779 and is , reportedly, where the agreement was signed which separated Maine from Massachusetts, in 1820, to become a state in its own right.

Lunch wasn’t as historic as that, but it was a pleasant experience , even if service was tardy. It was a lovely day and we took full advantage of the opportunity to eat outside. Although there was a fairly extensive menu, most folk were having sandwiches of one form or another and we opted for the same.

One lobster roll, one Reuben. The former on a soft roll – lots of lobster and a little drizzle of mayo. The Reuben on toasted rye & wheat – not overly stuffed and full of flavour, just as a sandwich should be, IMO.
