This was our first time to dine at One Dock in the Kennebunkport Inn. Our experience was very good, from making the reservation by phone, to the meal itself. The décor of the bar and dining room could best be described as "modern coastal cottage." Very cool, clean, comfortable furnishings and lighting. The menu is quite eclectic, but everything that...

I've eaten here quite a few times and always enjoyed it. From appetizers and drinks at the bar to dinner and even breakfast when we stayed the night once, the food is consistently creative and well executed. I had a new and wonderful experience yesterday. The all-you-can-eat prime rib came with two sides (I chose some OUTSTANDING brussels sprouts and... More

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

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!

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.

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
