On The Marsh is a magnificent restaurant, located about 15 minutes from downtown Ogunquit. It's on route 9 (off route 1). Route 9 is a dark and somewhat forbidding road, and as you drive down the road, you may think that I made an error in the route. But about 4 miles down route 9, you suddenly come upon the... More

My travelling companion and I spent a week in the Kennebunkport area of Maine, and ate out every evening. On the Marsh was our last stop for the week - and we were disappointed that we had not found it earlier! There were so many items on the menu we wanted to try! We settled for all of the lovely...

Having seen recent reviews of On The Marsh I was looking forward to having dinner there with three friends. I had already seen the prices and thought that, although very expensive, it would be a special experience. All four of us have traveled widely and, at our age (65+) are quite realistic when trying new restaurants (to us). We had... More

Loved it all! We ate at the bar, & delighted in the company of the bartender, Keith & the mgr John. We could have stayed there forever. The bar menu is perfect as was the delectable food. The decor is eclectic & perfectly designed to fit the casual elegantly appointed space. We came in as strangers & left 3 hours... More

Loved the French bistro decor and excellent food. I had the carrot ginger soup and scallops while my husband had the veal stuffed shells along with a salad. Everything was top drawer. Would definitely go back.

Dinner on a Tuesday night started well: nice decor, cozy table by a window. Waitress was knowledgeable and helpful. The problem was the food. Starters were both doused in a strong vinaigrette that overwhelmed the oysters and the duck. Main courses were overcooked. The risotto was mush. When we mentioned our disappointment, the chef agreed that the risotto should not... More

I have read all the lauditory reviews previously published, and I heartily endorse them all. There are many restaurants where you can get good food, fewer where you can get excellent food, but it is only the rare occasion when you can combine excellent food with excellent service, friendly, knowledgeable staff and an atmosphere that is beautiful outside and inside....

This meal was not only the best we had on our trip but also the best meal we have had ever and we have dined at the best restaurants all over the country for 25 years. The ambience is country French and Patrick, our server, is the ultimate professional. The filet was so tender and the dessert subtly sweet .... More

We went to On the Marsh for our 15 year anniversary and our parents 40th, and were treated spectacularly at this wonderful restaurant. The food was 5 star and the service from our waiter Frank was exceptional. We had appetizers ranging from oysters, creton to duck confit, followed by veal chops, scallops and mouth watering dessert. A must go for... More
