Dad said the lobster roll was one of the best he's had. Mom loved the lazy man's lobster... served out of the shell with a choice of potatoes and vegetable. I liked the lobster stew that had almost a whole lobster in sherry and butter. Delicious. Service from Steven was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was pleasant.

My family and I had a great meal during our brief stay in Kennebunkport! Juli was an awesome waitress and was great with our two small children. We will definitely come back the next time we are in town!

My wife and I had lunch at Bartley's on 7/17/14. Our visit to Kennebunkport was part of a two week driving trip throughout NE. This was the last day of our trip and without a doubt the meal at Bartley's was the best we had during the entire two weeks. We had the hot lobster roll and the scallop roll... More

This restaurant is a gem! We had Teresa and she was fabulous! She was extremely attentive. The food was amazing and she made some great drinks. I had the cheeseburger and fries and of course couldn't resist Grandma B's blueberry pie (a must have!). I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone heading up to the Kennebunkport area!

This place caught our eye as we strolled through town. So glad we stopped. Our waitress Teresa was wonderful. Complete service with a smile and she makes a mean Bloody Mary! Lobster roll was outstanding and the blueberry pie the best we've had. Don't miss this spot if you're in town, and be sure to ask for Teresa!

This restaurant had the best lobster roll my daughter and I have ever tasted in a restaurant. There wasn't a ton of mayonnaise like the other ones. You could actually taste the lobster. Our server was Teresa, and can I say that I was so happy she was. We dined outdoors and she was always there to get us a... More

Trying to get in "under the wire" (ie local restaurant kitchens close at 9)... We were gladly seated to grab a bite as we drive into town late! Perfect lobster and salad on the patio in a relaxed environment. Theresa was a joy! Helpful and friendly, we felt right at home! I'm ready for lunch tomorrow!

It starts with a semi-rude welcoming by the owner, admonishing us that we couldn't park there unless we were eating in her establishment. The owner, an older woman, clearly has no clue about how to run a restaurant or how to greet guests. She then called our attention to the desserts which were unappealingly wrapped in plastic wrap on the... More

Walked in with my family, looking for Maine lobster. We asked for recommendations and ended up getting all the lobster presentations. My favorite was the lobster pie and the baked lobster. Everything was well prepared and the service was great. Worth every penny.
