We go as part of a large family the day after Christmas. The service is great and the place is very quaint. It is always an enjoyable meal. Most dishes are a safe bet. However, the chicken pot pie is not a pot pie at all and left 3 diners very disappointed with their meals. The steak, salmon, and chicken... More

Most fun we have had at a restaurant. The staff was great, funny, friendly, and professional all at the same time. Had fried lobster and it was excellent. Thanks to Bert, Mylie and Brenden for a great experience.

This is a very good place for any meal with a small group, or just a couple's night out. The food is all quite good overall with a varied selection. The fact that you can save serious money by bringing your own adult beverages makes this place a true "go to" restaurant if you are in the Kennebunkport area. It... More

Had the best breakfast I have ever had here. The scramble of the day was lobster, Parmesan and bok choy and it was the most delicious egg I recall ever having. The homemade (real meat no dog food type hash) was also quite tasty. DInner of pork shanks that just fell off the bone also quite yummy. Locals eat here... More

We happened upon this restaurant and are glad we did. The staff was super friendly and kind. The food was really good. We were lucky to have found this place and that they were able to seat us.
