Wonderful location for a very nice older hotel that has lots of charm. Located right along the water, it gives you a nice feel of the New England coast.

On a late evening recently, we enjoyed a quick dinner at Heckman's Pub at The Nonantum Resort. The Heckman Burger was one of the best I have had.

My husband and I visit Kennebunkport twice a year and always dine at 95 Ocean. The food is excellent...my husband is addicted to their ribs in a blueberry sauce. They are so tender and tasty! The restaurant has nightly specials that are always very good and also very reasonable. On our last visit I had the Lazy Man's Baked Stuffed... More

Talented chef with a balanced menu. Had the bbq ribs - like heaven. My husband had the salmon - exceptional. Service very attentive, even with a tour bus to feed in the adjacent dinning room.

If your idea of a "Maine Lobster Pie" entree for $29 is my wife's soup bowl of corn chowder with some bits of lobster floating in it (in total, we estimated, about the amount in one claw), then this is the place for you. It's not for us. Nor was the 12 minute wait after we were seated with no... More

I guess you could call Elaine and I regulars. We've had the wine dinner almost every Thursday for the past two seasons. We eat at other restaurants, but the wine dinner gives us the opportunity to try different wines paired with three courses. Never the same, but always interesting and fun.

Ate the Sunday special, with lobster, seafood chowder, mussels, corn and baked potato for $20 or so. I would have been happy to pay more and get higher quality food; the chowder and mussels were good but the lobster was not good quality nor was the corn and potato. The server was sweet but slow; I think she had too... More

We had dinner. I had the seafood chowder and the haddock, both listed as signature dishes and both outstanding. My wife had Lobster Cakes, another signature dish, like crab cakes but made with lobster. Again superb, tasty and loaded with lobster meat. Excellent service as well.

The food was excellent but they are a little pricey. We would go back though as it was very good. The service is excellent and they offer nightly entertainment in the summer. We had a lovely pianist and this added a nice touch to our meal.
