Totally enjoyed our dinner at On The Marsh. We both ordered the swordfish and agreed that it may have been the best swordfish dinner we ever had. Liked the setting, service, drinks....everything! Will definitely return.

Very nice location, attractively decorated, charming waitress. Food did not live up to other reviews. Nothing special. No interest in returning.

What an enchanting evening! The service was splendid. The atmosphere is divine. Our meals were extraordinary! I had the beef tenderloin. It was cooked to perfection. My wife had the lazy lobster in a light buttery wine sauce with fresh wilted spinach. It was delightful. Make certain to get a reservation well in advance because this treasure has been discovered...

About as romantic as it gets. The tables overlooking the marsh at sunset offer stunning, serene views. The music and atmosphere were great. Food was very good. Excellent for couples celebrating a special occasion or just loving life.

The Kennebunk/Kennebunkport area is filled with great restaurants, and we'd heard good things about On the Marsh. We usually go to the White Barn Inn, but my husband decided to make reservations there for our 48th anniversary dinner for a change. And we weren't disappointed. The host even called ahead to discuss what kinds of wine we enjoy so he... More

We arrived while it was raining, they came running out with umbrellas. We were seated at a table with a wonderful view of the garden. Our server was very nice and knowledgable. Great local oysters with a cucumber mignonette. Nice salad with local greens. The sole was outstanding. The sear scallops were very good, but the plate was a little... More

My husband and I chose this place for our 1st Anniversary dinner. It was SO romantic. The sailboat outside with the white lights and the decor inside plus the piano music was just perfect. We are so happy we decided to go here! The host greeted us warmly and after seating us and hearing it was our anniversary returned to... More

Most gorgeous place for a wedding. The building was amazing. Best wedding I've ever been too. Everything from getting ready to the ceremony to the reception was just perfect.

Elaine and I visited on 6/6/14. We were pleased to see John at the door. He's always made us feel special when he's served us before. He seated us at a wonderful table introduced us to Kimberly who explained the High Wine Dinner menu. It was awesome! Proper dining. Three small plates, entree and dessert perfectly matched with three glasses... More

This was our first stay in Kennebunkport and I had been told by a friend to try On the March. His praise for this restaurant was absolutely accurate. As we drove down the driveway we first saw how beautiful and tranquil the grounds were. We were not more than a quarter mile from the busy Kennebunkport downtown area. It was... More
