My girlfriend and I went to 50 local while visiting with family in Kennebunk. Excellent pasta and sea food. Service was great too, very friendly. I highly recommend the lobster roll and calimari.

Had never been in before but had always wanted to stop in, when we first walked in we were not disappointed, a really great atmosphere with a relaxed vibe. The hostess' were very nice but it is not a place you want to stop in on a time constraint. The relaxed vibe carries into the servers. Though that can also... More

This was our first visit to the restaurant and it had received such great reviews. It is truly a Farm to Table and the food was excellent once it arrived. The service though pleasant was not something to brag about. We were right on time for our reservation at 7:15 PM but after placing our order we did not see... More

I encouraged my friends to go to 50 Local just on Trip Advisor recommendations and we were all very impressed. It was a quiet night so the vibe was different than it must be when the place is busy but the service and food was wonderful. The fish stew was especially good, and the ricotta appetizer was delicate and fresh.... More

We are locals and frequently enjoy the the creative style and local products offered by 50 Local. Similar to a recent post, the service last evening was very slow and erratic. Our server was most pleasant but was covering many tables. We waited :20 before anyone approached our table and cocktails took another:15. The appetizers arrived quickly but then another... More

we got there at 7pm and there was only one server in the entire restaurant, our server did his best to take our drink order, which by the way was a glass of wine and cocktail that took 20 minutes to deliver. Once we ordered our food, it was good, tasty and inventive--I had the seafood stew, which seemed like... More

Two of my dearest friends and I were fortunate enough to attend a private cooking class with Chef Ross, from 50 Local on a recent trip to Maine. He is personable, dedicated to his profession and is committed to bringing the freshest food to his customers. He taught us how to shuck and prepare oysters, introduced us to rhubarb, taught... More

Someone at the English Meadows Inn recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. I had a lovely rose wine and the lobster stew. Only wish this place were closer so I could go all the time.....
