On Saturday night we had a lovely dinner at 95 Ocean in the resort. The food was great, and the service was excellent. My only complaint was that there was a duo playing live piano and stand-up bass who played as if they were the main entertainment instead of being there to provide background music. With multiple generations of family... More

Today we visited The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunk Maine. We invited some friends along to join us for the Sunday buffet at The 95 Restaurant. Our experience was exceptional, the service excellent, the food delicious and abundant. Both my wife and I ordered an omelet at the fresh prepare station, and found the choice of ingredients was ample and fresh.... More

The highpoint for me at this restaurant was the New England clam chowder - it was the real deal. Ribs in blueberry sauce was also quite delicious. I would only recommend that you sit far from the musical entertainment, because their volume is not tailored to allow restaurant conversation (at least not in the same room where the musicians are).

Maine Chef of the Year 2014 presides at this restaurant at the Nonantum Resort and it shows from an ample breakfast buffet to grilled vegetable pita at lunch to the Lazy Man's Lobster Dinner in the evening. Wait staff was unfailingly polite, well mannered/trained, and service was expedient. Nice atmosphere with a pianist and a view of the river and... More

Went here with a group of people to take advantage of their lazy man's lobster special. The food (including the lobster) was average. The lobster had too much butter and bread crumbs.

Hello, waltermNashua_NH, I am so sorry and surprised to hear you didn't enjoy our Tuesday night special, the Lazy Man's Baked Stuffed Lobster-- it is a huge hit, but isn't for everyone. I wish you'd informed your server that you didn't enjoy the special, as we would have been happy to get you something else. Please come back and give... More

Our experience with the nonantum and it's incredible staff begin when we were planning our 2012 wedding. Since the most amazing day of our lives, my husband and I have returned for several spectacular dinners.
