My husband and I enjoyed a quiet dinner here. We loved the gin cocktail for two--amazing! Caesar salad and crabcakes were excellent. The mussels were good though a bit rich for our taste. I enjoyed the scallops but my husband found them salty. The lobster fettucine was very good but also very rich. We'd return, especially for the cocktails!

Thank you wegonownortheast for your review. The gin & juice for two is a guest favorite - we are so glad you enjoyed it! I will be sure to pass your thoughts about the saltiness of the scallops along to the kitchen. I apologize that they were not to your husbands liking. We are glad you enjoyed the other dishes!...

My boyfriend and I decided to take a romantic trip to Kennebunkport in March. Pretty much the entire town is shut down, which shocked us being from NYC. After much research on restaurants, I chose One Dock for our first night in town. The food was good. I had the steak frites and my boyfriend had the duck. Both were... More

Guest that join us at this time of the year still have a number of dining and entertainment options and we are certainly glad you chose us. Your... More

Had a great meal at the Dock One Restaurant located on the ground floor of the Kennebunkport Inn. It was completely renovated and is absolutely charming. The furniture and color palate are very inviting. Started with drinks in the richly appointed bar. Musicians were setting up to perform live music later in the evening. We ate in the formal dining...

It took way too long for the server to acknowledge us. Food was terrible. For the price, we were expecting quality food. My boyfriend got the duck, which was a little undercooked. It had some horrible noodle thing, the flavors didn't go together at all. I got the steak, which was disappointingly chewy. The waiter didn't know anything about the... More

We had dinner here on a snowy January night. I ordered the duck breast and my husband ordered the scallops. The duck breast was cooked to perfection, with a tasty, crispy skin. The side was disappointing though...ramen noodles with some random veggies thrown in. It was like pairing box macaroni with a filet mignon. My husband had the scallops, which... More

This is a very nice little place in the Kennebunkport Hotel, right in Dock Square. We were lucky enough to be there for Christmas Prelude in December. The food is awesome, the staff is great and the location and ambience is just what you would expect in a small hotel in Maine. Thursday nights are especially nice with live music... More

My boyfriend and I spent some time at One Dock at the Kennebunkport Inn this past weekend. We were guests at The Grand Hotel and received complimentary drinks at One Dock. Of course that was the first stop we made. We got to One Dock around 3:30, the bar doesn't open until 4:00. The Manager(?) told us not to worry,... More

Excellent food & service. Navy blue & white décor perfect for MA feeling. Food was delicious . Reservations suggested, although we had no trouble getting in off season. Sat by warm fire on cold evening. Romantic.
