I appreciate the restaurant using local ingredients. The food is good but expensive. It is also repetitive for us locals.

We live nearby and have been here a few times now.The food is great,as is the service. Kennebunk Village is one of my favorite places anywhere. The ingredients are local , very very fresh and of the highest quality. We plan to return this Spring for another outstanding dining experience.

Try the short rib poutine! A French Canadian dish that makes you feel warm inside and loved as if your mother made it just for you. All ingredients (50 of them) are as fresh as possible and local from Maine farmers and family fisherman.

We were in town off-season and stopped in for dinner. We we very surprised at the popularity of 50 Local. The food and service were very good. I had scallops that were among the best I have ever had. My companions both had tenderloin. The steaks were a bit overdone. However, after tasting both agreed they were excellent.

Been thinking of trying this dining establishment for over a year now and finally went the other night. The place is so chic with an upscale flair. As we sat at the bar our server as well as bartender were extremely attentive and very friendly to chat with. I ordered the Remedy cocktail as I love ginger and cayenne. It... More

Off season visit to Maine, our innkeeper gave the nod to 50 Local. Great bar with many custom cocktails. Interesting beer list. Service was outstanding and timely. Cosy yet chic, especially for a New England setting! Food was well prepared and presented, and we enjoyed our evening! More of a couples than family dining experience.

This was my kind of place! Beware if you need a lot of light to read because the ambience of this place is dark with candles. I did just fine but I could see how it could bother someone else. We had a few drinks here and some appetizers. This bar also doesn't have any TVs so don't expect to... More
