We had a very mediocre meal, with very mediocre service in a restaurant with great ambiance. I thought it overpriced for what it was. The jazz duo saved the evening for us.

The views from the restaurant are lovely, especially on a warm sunny day. The food choices are many and varied - both seafood and non-seafood selections. We ate here for lunch and dinner. The staff were friendly and professional. There was live music in the evening.

First went to The Ramp downstairs, but that would have been at least a 45 minute wait. Upstairs, after about a 20 minute wait, we were seated at a window table. What a view on a beautiful April night! My husband loved the Dead Guy ale. I had a wonderful Malbec. We split a spinach and beet salad that was... More

We went on Easter Sunday and the place was packed, which surprised us! Not much was open around there's, due to the holiday, but this place seemed very popular with locals and tourists alike. After tasting the food and seeing the view, that made a lot of sense. Absolutely delicious, great service, and generous ( but not too generous!) portions.... More

Rumour had it that the 77 was sold to become another non-descript part of the 'Kennebunk collection'. That. in itself is not good news. Well, it appears that the rumour was just that and 77 is still there. We were there recently and had splendid food and great service.

we were last at Pier 77 in 2009 and had a wonderful, romantic delicious dinner and evening so when we decided to go back to Kennebunkport, we immediately booked dinner reservations to go back to Pier 77....what a mistake! It has definitely gone downhill since our last visit. To begin with, a minute after we were seated, a server came... More

great mussels and three different preparations and the bread they serve with them to mop up the broth is excellent with garlic butter. Their salads are very good and many options. I love the scallops they are always so fresh and tasty. The views of Cape Porpoise are alone worth the price of dinner.

Great food, good service, white table clothes and most importantly great views. . I enjoyed the lamb chops and some good wine. The location is right by the water with perfect to watch sunsets.
