The food was lovely but it was a pre- fix four course meal. The cost was $109 per person. The portions are small but elegantly done. However, it wasn't fabulous. The entree was a lazy lobster sitting on a bed of linguini which was superb! The dessert was a coconut cheese cake which wasn't the greatest. Honestly, we had lunch... More

The restaurant is housed in a rustic, but beautifully decorated old farm house with well-tailored grounds. Service is amazing. Mention a member of... More

We were on vacation in Kennebunkport during our 20th anniversary and decided to splurge on a special night out. The White Barn Inn seemed to fit the bill. We took the 9 course tasting menu, with wine service and expected to be wowed. The setting was romantic and pretty, and service was very nice, although the couple next to us... More

Our hotel personnel recommended that we have dinner at the White Barn Inn, Kennebunk, during our recent vacation stay in Ogunquit, Maine. A credit card is required for a reservation and if not cancelled within a certain timeframe, a penalty fee is charged. We usually choose fine dining restaurants and had never encountered this before. The restaurant has little ambience... More

While not a "foodie," I do enjoy a great meal now and then. When looking for a dining establishment to celebrate the engagement of great friends, we arrived at White Barn Inn - from great recommendations and research. You feel that this is going to be a special time from the moment the valet takes your vehicle and you enter... More
