My wife and I stayed in Kennebunkport over the fourth of July weekend, living it up with HW and W and a crate of lobsters. Our goal was to stick mostly with various seafood shacks, but did want to have 1 nicer meal. We chose 95 Ocean off of reviews and were glad we did. Leading up to this dinner,... More

First to say the staff was very attentive but the wait time on the food was terrible. I know I was at a resort and should not be in a hurry, but this was a little extreme. I will say though the breakfast bar was great

The seafood is fresh, simple, and delicious! The seafood chowder is the best I've had -- full of great fish!

Well, 95 was just fine. No surprises here. Service was good. Food was very good. Prices reasonable. The dining room overlooking the lawn and water is simple, but the view is really nice. I would return.

Hello New York Friend: I am happy to hear all was well with your dinner. As you said, the views are spectacular and the food is great! I don't know about you but I am partial to the shrimp and grits. This afternoon we had a cooking demonstration (which we do every Monday) and the Chef made the shrimp and... More

Dinner was very loud and average. However, going early for breakfast was delicious and peaceful. The buffet was generous and hearty. Later in the morning the breakfast room got noisy and crowded.

Hi Lisa: It is terrific that you like the early morning breakfast! Each morning when we open up there are a few early birds waiting anxiously for the doors to open. After the initial 7:30 rush it is very quiet until 9:30, when 80% of the people all arrive at once. The same is true of 7:30 pm dinners. We... More

Dinner is served in the dining room overlooking the harbor - piano playing in the background. Servers were excellent as was the house wine - look for it. Dinner was very nice - but the breakfast buffet was very nice - great way to start the day - and part of the cost of the stay.

Hello Newton Friend: The views from our dining room really are lovely, the food is fantastic and with our entertainment it is hard to beat the Nonantum for dinner! I ate in the dining room last night and had the Lobster Cakes and I have to say they were delicious! Another current favorite of mine is the Shrimp and Grits.... More

Hello Newton Visitor: I am so glad you enjoyed our dining room. The music really is outstanding! Unlike so many places, all of our musicians understand that they are there to be background music. People want to enjoy their dinner and talk with each other and the music needs to be controlled accordingly. All of our musicians understand this and... More
