Great experience

We've been to Kennebunkport many times but this was our first visit here...cozy atmosphere (with the fireplace going on an especially cold March evening), soothing decor, great food, very friendly service. Small plates were good--nice cocktails, too. We'll be back!

Very cozy in the winter with a roaring fire in the fireplace, this restaurant has a very friendly atmosphere, an interesting cocktails list with innovative mixology. I have only eaten at this restaurant in the winter, bundled inside with snow falling, but can only imagine this is a great location for summer dining right on the river. The menu is... More

Thank you MJohnstonNJCharters for your review. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed the cozy atmosphere, craft cocktails, and dinner menu. The winter dining experience you described sounds picturesque. We hope you come see us during the warmer months, too! Our patio and sundeck are great spots to unwind, cocktail in hand. More

First time there was a pleasure! Didn't know what to expect but was very happy with the drink and food selections and service was very friendly and helpful! Atmosphere wasn't too stuffy either. They had some interesting specials too! It doesn't have the waterfront views as some of the other restaurants in the area, but the fireplace in March made... More

This has risen to one of my favorite places in the Kennebunkport area - maybe because it meets the requirements that we love as diners - small plates to share and enjoy lots of different flavors and tastes, cocktails that are expertly crafted and just a warm feeling with the ambiance and the service. We like casual here in Maine... More

Great location in the center of Kennebunkport. Nice fireplace. Good drink and dining specials, good service (attentive but not hovering). Our main meal was very good with the exception of some items being burnt black. That was a pity since food tastes better than charcoal. The desserts were disappointing, being small portions for the price. Might try it again for... More

By making Inn reservations in advance, we could get a special deal on the prelude weekend menu and advance reservations. Alcoholic beverages are billed separately. There were three courses. I had lobster bisque and spouse had beet salad and both were very good. There were five entrée options and we both enjoyed Braised Short Rib although my husband's was very... More

We went cautiously as we weren't certain they could satisfy our gluten free diet.
