My boyfriend ordered fish and chips, which came with fries and cold slaw. Fish was not good. The cold slaw was good and fries were ok. I ordered the house clam chowder and the crab cakes. Clam chowder was peppery and not a lot of flavor. Crab cakes were good. Not oily, or dry. The side salad was good. Nice... More

No one does mussels better than their Portuguese mussels (if you like them spicy). The oysters bingo appetizer was outstanding. Also the chopped salad. We think the food here is as good as any restaurant in Kennebunkport ( except for Earth which is in a league of its own!)

We had dinner here one mid-week evening in August. We had to book a few days in advance and the restaurant was busy. The place has a nice feel to it. However, the main dining area is one large space and the volume is therefore loud: too loud. The food was good but most of the menu is shared with... More

Quite disappointing. Apparently, according to the couple that took us there, the menu is more "casual," in fact quite limited. The setting is nice and the service was fairly good. The food was average at best with virtually no interesting choices. I do not plan to go back.

We had reservations for 7:30-perfect time to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset. The restaurant is very nice- intimate without being stuffy. We had a table by the window and loved it. The service was great and the food was also great--I went with the special and my husband had fish-we had a lot of lobster traveling on the... More

The restaurant is at the end of the picturesque Porpoise Point and, after parking in the restaurant only car park, we spent a short time on the pier taking photos of the beautiful views and watching the plovers dive into the water catching tiny silver fish. The restaurant has great views over the water; the service was good and the... More

We were just about finished with lobster but decided to try it one more time on a recommendation from Jane at the Red Apple Campground. It is a great little restaurant out on the pier at Kennebuckport....Cape Porpoise. It was the BEST lobster we have had...anywhere! They made it with just a small amount mayo and celery for crunch. It... More

We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated promptly. They had run out of one of the evening specials so 2 of us had our second choice (haddock) which was delicious. Well worth the price. There was a piano and bass player which was very nice; our only complaint was that due to noise it was hard to talk. We... More

Parking is difficult, but once we told the owner, she guided my husband into a spot right out front! Our meals were anything but difficult..our salads were fresh and inventive, the scallops were cooked to perfection, so sweet and tender & the lobster/pasta special was so loaded with lobster meat, our daughter offered to share it with us! Our waiter... More

well, we tried it last Saturday, my first impression was the busier it got, the more arrogant the reception and ongoing experience……..the food was over-priced and oh so average, honestly, want good seafood or fish, go to mabel;s, nunans, the local supermarket……..the owner is Katie,she really should be in the funeral business, after all, once dead-how can a stiff complain,...
