My Chicken Parmesan splintered into chewy gains as I ate it and the sauce was on par with Ragu.
My girlfriend's fish was good, but the mashed potatoes and vegetables were a miss.
The only saving grace this place has in our opinion are the drinks. All in all, I spent about $60 for bad food and overpriced drinks.

My family has been going there for nearly 30 years. Even though it changed hands a few years back the food is still great! My favorites are the French Onion Soup, Syrian Nachos and Swiss Fondue! Add in a comfy atmosphere and you have a great laid back date which is sure to please. I just wish they would bring back the veggie lasagne.

I love this place. The atmosphere, made from scratch boneless bbq chicken tenders. I've also tried their honey baked scallops, yum. I haven't been disappointed yet.

Long ago (15-25 years ago) it was a real treat to go to Freestone's but my last two visits have been disappointing as far as service and the quality of the food. It is close to the wonderful Whaling Museum and right across the street from the National Parks Service folks who are fabulous ambassadors for New Bedford. So if you go to Freestone's, stick to the fish chowder and great selection of beer and all will be well.

Apart from the poor service of the place, I had to walk to the bar after seeing our drinks sit there for 10 minutes... My companion's fried clams were not good at all. They were mush inside. When he sent them back, lost his appetite, and did not order another entree, the server actually charged him for the one beer he ordered. A big disappointment.

This place was great. The building itself is worth the trip. I had the steak tips and my wife had the seared scallops, we enjoyed are meals, our waitress was very attentive. Even the prices were reasonable. We have been to Freestones several times and haven't gotten a bad meal yet.

After being lifelong residents of the New Bedford area, we moved to Florida three years ago. We recently returned while on vacation and made it a priority to go to one of our favorite restaurants; Freestone's. We were disappointed. The Syrian nachos were not the same. We feel the cheese was not the same as in years past. One of the specials was listed as cod but was told by our waitress it was scrod. We ordered a stuffed quahog and was told they were out of them. Can you believe that a restaurant in New Bedford would be out of stuffed quahog??? Also had very slow, poor service.
