Great recommendation from friends. A local, small restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We visited for breakfast last weekend. We were seated pretty quickly, given the number of parties waiting. We were seated next to a local couple who have been patrons for many years, through 3-4 owners. They complimented the current owners and shared some of the history... More

We had the chance to land a reservation at the last minute and so glad we did. The food is very good and the prices extremely reasonable. Ordered the fried lobster and it was amazing. Nothing you would expect in any other restaurant. It is a small place but don't let that fool you. Service was great considering how busy... More

This "all year round" restaurant is worth visiting. We had a hamburger and it was delicious. The food was freshly cooked and piping hot. The fries were so good, light crispy outside and fluffy in the middle. The staff is very friendly and the price is good. The interior has been recently decorated, and is bright and airy. I would...

The Wayfarer is a wonderful local restaurant, completely redone with a new chef for this season. We've eaten here twice on this vacation (so far), and have been very pleased. The salmon that my husband had was superb, and our friend's quinoa vegetarian dish was very satisfying and tasty. My braised pork shank was similarly flavorful. The wait staff is... More

My husband and I just stopped at the Wayfarer for lunch and it was excellent! I had the lobster Mac and cheese that was clearly made from scratch and I finished every single bite. My husband had the blackened haddock sandwich which was equally as scrumptious. It is a nice rural setting in the quaint Cape Porpoise. The service was... More

We had lunch at The Wayfarer, a neat little place in lovely, small Cape Porpoise (Kennebunkport area). The Wayfarer does not have parking, but we had no difficulty finding parking on a street right across from the restaurant. One goes to The Wayfarer for good food and interesting items on the menu not for great views and sights. One can... More

We were lucky to get a reservation on a busy Saturday night. The food and service here is wonderful. Appetizers of Lobster mac & cheese, mushroom and eggplant soup (wait til you taste it before you wrinkle that nose) and a salad of local produce were great. Salmon and fried lobster entrees were also great. Unfortunately, the homemade desserts were... More

We felt fortunate to have a reservation on a busy Saturday night, as we saw drop-in hopefuls turned away. We also felt welcomed into this friendly local landmark, worlds away (but only a few miles) from the hordes descending on Dock Square in Kennebunkport. The chef is clearly talented: the swordfish special, served on a bed of colorful peppers and... More

Wayfarer in Cape Porpoise: This is a short (10 min) drive north of Kennebunk. A great spot! It’s BYOB, so make sure to bring your bottle of wine, beer with you. There's a small grocery store across the road, if needed. The menu is small but varied and it didn't disappoint! We shared the pork belly (OH MY GOD!). My... More
