One Dock in the Kennebunkport Inn: Amazing! We went twice during the week. The first time, we stopped as it has a gorgeous little patio, with hanging lanterns and cool music. The atmosphere is what grabbed us. We ordered a Negroni and it was pretty near perfect! We sat and people watched. The staff are very friendly and cheerful. We... More

We were staying in the Kennebunkport Inn and ate in the restaurant amidst a wild thunderstorm! We had one starter from the small plates menu, the chicken meatballs - very tasty, followed by the chicken mains with 4 different sides - the crispy onions are delicious! ... An interesting alternative to your traditional menu.

Loved the menu last year at this exceptional "New England" Inn and wonderful restaurant. It took a little getting used to the new "small plate"' tastings this summer. However, everything I and my table mates tried was surprisingly superb!! Excellent fish tacos, ribs, boa-boa dumplings, sliders and just about anything on the menu. The truffle fries were addictive as were... More

Thank you Elizabeth K for your review. As you know, we have just redone our menu for the summer. I am so thrilled to hear that you enjoy it! It does take some getting used it, so we train our servers extensively on how to walk people through their dining experience. The fish tacos have become a big hit around... More

One Dock looked a little fancy for our budget and lifestyle, but since they had a margarita happy hour special, we made an exception, and boy are we glad we did. The margaritas were excellent (and I'm particular.) We returned the next night so that we could sample some of the appetizer specials, and they were so good that we... More

Thank you KellyVT for your review. We are so happy that you took a chance and joined us for a Margarita!! We have Margarita Monday every Monday with $6 margaritas. Our bartenders are always coming up with creative cocktails for happy hour and with the select $5 small plates served from 4pm-5:30, you can't beat the price either! We would... More

I've lived in town here for years. I knew the K'port Inn had changed management, but I guess my recollections of their old dining room (very Colonial-style and the food was nothing special) kept me from going back. I've been there twice now this summer, and I'll be back again. The menu is sort of a hybrid of Asian influence... More

We stopped at this restaurant a few weeks ago because the outdoor patio looked so nice and inviting. We were disappointed when our food came though. The salad may have consisted of regionally grown lettuce, but though it was listed as a lunch option, it was miniscule and ridiculously overpriced for what we got. We left hungry.

I realize that garlic has been one of the hot flavors for several years now but I don't care to be overpowered by it on my bread, butter or oil, and throughout my meal so that I can't detect other flavors easily. I like garlic but it was overly abundant in everything I ate here. And small tastings, such as... More

Thank you Nina P for taking the time review One Dock. I see that you visited us for dinner last year.

Based on previous reviews, we thought this place would be better. We arrived and were asked to wait at the bar while our table was being set. The bartender gave us a menu and never came back to get our order, he was too busy. Then our table was ready 10 minutes later, and we ordered drinks at the table.... More
