A casual recommendation from our hotel sent us here. Perfect evening. Drinks at the bar chatting to locals with a great wine list and tasty tapas menu. Great addition to the seaside town

We have been visiting Kennebunkport for a number of years. This past Saturday while enjoying a mom/daughter getaway we were finally able to visit Old Vines. We were not disappointed! Our waiter Sam was very pleasant and had the perfect recommendations for our cheese selections, flatbread pizza and the wines! To top it all off we shared a delicious piece... More

We came to Kennebunk to stay at an inn for my birthday a few weeks ago, and researched where to go for dinner. We ended up deciding on Old Vines, and couldn't have been happier. The food and wine was wonderful, as was the service. We'll definitely be back!

Old Vines in the Lower Village of Kennebunk is a wonderful spot for happy hour, but stay longer and enjoy all that it has to offer. Diverse, small plate menu is very interesting and the food very good. Wine list is extensive. Staff is friendly and engaging. The small bar is intimate and a great place to meet new people... More

Well, I live across the street, love wine and wanted to check this place out. Beautiful spot in lower village Kennebunk, a stones throw from Kennebunkport. Ambiance is A +, great service and a decent selection of wines. The appetizers were a good blend of things one might find in a wine bar, charcuterie (sampled a few- yum!) crostini and... More

We were staying at The Boathouse and walked to Old Vines in just a few minutes. We were looking for a light evening meal. The menu is eclectic and impressive. We each had a cocktail called Lori 75 which was delicious. We ordered charcuterie and a cheese plate to start followed by the artichoke and kalamata pizza. Everything, including service... More

Its still a short walk from the middle of town, and worth every step. For any serious wine enthusiasts, this is a must try. Great couples night. This not a family place....its a bar
