You won't find this amazing coastal waterfront secret place unless a local tells you! Never mind the spot on fresh food, unique & simplistic atmosphere decorated with photos and memorabilia - you'll be immediately happy with the dedicated parking lot. That alone will keep you smiling as you walk down "the ramp." Win, win from there - .

My wife and I stopped by during lunch and knew right away it was the place to go by all the local contractors coming and going. The food did not disappoint. My fish and chips were great and my wife's muscles were perfect. Great atmosphere, waitress and staff! We felt like regulars and we will be back as soon as... More

My husband and I took a scenic ride out to The Ramp for lunch recently during our visit to Maine. The food was excellent, the service was great, the music playing was perfect and the character and atmosphere of the restaurant itself is really fun and cozy. I wish we lived closer!!

We were sightseeing on our way back to Boston, and had just driven out here to see what was around. Lots of pickup and box trucks, lobster boats and a busy dock. Fishing boats must have come in. Couple of guys go down a ramp, couple more come up. Hmmm.....sign says RAMP Bar and Grill. Lunch! This has to be... More

After watching the sunset and turned to my yelp app to find dinner. The Ramp had everything I was looking for food. Had a view of the Gulf, tons of character, and a great staff. The lobster roll was something new for me, but was amazing. Matthew was very helpful with knowledge of the area (head down east) and service.... More

We were staying in Kennebunkport but came back three times to Cape Porpoise - it is a beautiful spot with lovely views of Goat Island and the lobster boats moored in the natural harbour. On our last visit we had a drink at The Ramp, and wished we had done so earlier in our stay. A great welcome, and such... More

Looking for a trending spot that seems to be at the edge of now-where? The Ramp is literally that, a little hideaway at water's edge next to fishing and lobster traps underneath the trendy Pier 77 restaurant in Cape Porpoise , Maine. 10 minutes from Kennebunkport, this restaurant is small but the food surprisingly good and filling. The Ramp is... More

Sometimes a bit of a wait.. but always worth it! & the wait itself couldn't be in a more beautiful location with the cape reaching out into the harbor the way it does. SErves up the usual bar fare along with exquisite delicacies, all in a friendly casual atmosphere.
