We stumbled on this restaurant by accident. Quiet around here this time of year, but the waitress said they're open year round. The menus for the Ramp seems the same as the menus for the Pier 77 upstairs, but the Ramp has a pub atmosphere (reminds me of an Irish pub). My fried whole belly clams were so tasty and... More

We had lunch there on a weekday in November, and I was stunned how busy it was. It's a very small room, but filled up. The décor is great; casual and rustic. The staff was friendly and efficient, and the food was good. The lobster roll was pricey at $22, so we all had something else, but it did look... More

I am biased and always order the Mixed Seafood Grill, my husband gets the fried clams. They just know how to make it right every time. Sports bar type of place but excellent food and service. We live nearby so can go in off season and during the week. The tourists have discovered it so there's usually a wait in... More

We love the Ramp. There is nothing on the menu that isn't fantastic my favorite is their burgers, onion string, seafood stew, chopped salad and most of all the wait staff and bar tender. The location is magnificent and the atmosphere warm inviting and FUN!!!

Great atmosphere, all sorts of knickknacks and items add character. The lobster rolls were terrific. The string onions were great.

My friend who lives in Kennebunk asked if I preferred fried food or not and I said not so we came to the Ramp. Eat downstairs for the same food at lower prices but get there early. We arrived around 11:15am on a Sunday and the place was almost full. I ordered the special, a fish chowder, and seafood stew.... More

Hands down-- Our best meal in Maine! I am still dreaming about the lobster roll that I ate. The lobster was so fresh and is on a toasty bun with a little bit of crisp. I absolutely loved that my roll was made fresh and it wasn't just a lump of lobster meat that had been pre-prepared and sitting in... More

This was a fun, funky little bar/pub on Cape Porpoise. We went for lunch and had to wait for a seat. The place has presidential campaign posters plastered all over the walls and ceiling! Fun! Great little seating area outside overlooking the water with umbrellas and bright yellow Adirondack chairs. We had the haddock fish and chips! Great coleslaw and... More
