Worth the Price

We ate in their Bistro because the small standard restaurant was filled that evening. Prices were not cheap but the food and service supported their menu - we had an excellent meal and will return...something we rarely do with a restaurant experience. One piece of advice - the Bistro menu is... read more

The atmosphere, wait staff and the food was a culinary delight. It was in a rustic barn that was so tastefully decorated. The barn was warm, cozy romantic with soft lights. Not noisy, and there was a piano player all evening. It was so relaxing and enjoyable I couldn't believe two hours passed so quickly.

Top restaurant highly recommended in Kennebunkport. Nice menus concept, innovative cuisine, delicious food, if wished paired with great wines, lovely barn decoration & atmosphere, all with live background music, and great & swift service. A place not to be missed when traveling the Maine coast.

Some say that the White Barn Inn is the best dining in Maine. After our recent visit, we tend to agree that it is exceptional in every way. The prix fixe menu offers a variety of dishes brimming with flavor especially when paired with the excellent wine list. Add the flawless service and delightful ambiance and the White Barn becomes...

Stepping into the White Barn we were very excited by the beautiful setting. When our food came, however, we were very disappointed. For the $109 price for their prefix menu nothing was particularly good.

Is it the best restaurant you will ever go to? Maybe not, but there are a number of highlights that make it worth the trip. I ordered off of the menu which costs about $100 per person. (Without booze) The appetizer was quite good and the main course was extremely well prepared. The soufle for desert was one of the... More

My wife and I have been coming to The White Barn for several years and recently had dinner there. The place continues to impress us! We like the ambiance of the restaurant - it's traditional in a warm, cozy way - and we enjoyed the large flower arrangement displayed outside the large picture window in the main room. The service...

This is a superb restaurant. Do not eat for two days prior to having dinner here. I did not know lobster could be this tender and flavor able I have a good lobster before but never like this! The s'mores soufflé was UNBELIEVABLE The service was as well done as I've ever seen it. Worth the $$

We recently ate dinner at the White Barn Inn when we were staying at the inn. It proved to be one of the best dinners we've ever had on all levels. We received a warm greeting by Peter the maitre d' and he was very helpful in informing the wait staff that I have a gluten allergy. Our server made... More
