We went here after an art opening attracted by the small plate menu. It was terrific. I had the ribs and the lobster rangoon. Piano bar inside may not be everyone's cup of tea, but there is plenty of dining away from the piano. Next time in Kennebunkport I would return.

Thank you ChathamTom for your review. Just this summer, we completely changed our menu to focus on small plates, meant to be shared. I am glad that this attracted you to come dine with us! The lobster rangoons are quickly becoming a guest (and staff) favorite. You're right, not everyone likes a piano bar. Our space is wonderful because you... More

New small plate menu at one dock is a home run! We shared three small plate - fish tacos, ravioli dish' and steak bun dish plus brussel sprouts plus! Perfect. We also sat on the sun porch- a great location to catch up with my husband.

Thank you counselorcarol for your review! We are thrilled you think our new menu is a "home run" - we do too! The fish tacos are definitely becoming a guest favorite, with One Dock's own special "guacamollio" sauce. The sundeck is such a beautiful spot to watch the sunset and share small plates & cocktails with a loved one. It... More

Went to One Dock with 5 friends for drinks and food. One Dock is mostly small plates to share, which suited us well. Things that rocked? Cocktails, wine list, lobster rangoons, mussels, seared scallops, service. The decor was cool and updated. Honestly, didn't want to love this place (because of the touristy local) but I do. Can't wait to go... More

We enjoyed two dinners at One Dock, and both times the food was excellent, and the wait staff just as wonderful. The lobster and halibut selections were outstanding. The side orders, especially the potatoes and roasted vegetables were delicious. On both occasions, the waitresses were friendly, and helpful. One Dock was a highlight of our stay in Kennebunkport.

Thank you TomBucci for your review. I'm glad the lobster and "catch of the day" halibut was enjoyable! The selection of sides are wonderful. The grilled summer vegetables and roasted potatoes are simply delicious! Our wait staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I will be sure to share your comments with them. It is an honor to be a highlight... More

This place is one of the best spots in southern maine! The new small plates menu is amazing. Brussel sprouts, boa boa buns, and lobster rangoon: whoa! Whether mid-afternoon snacking or sharing many plates among friends, I can think of no better spot to gather than out on the patio in the new deck chairs or on the back porch... More

One Dock's new menu of small plates is definitely worth a visit. Some of the Asian influenced fare really hits the mark. It's refreshing not to have to order one big dish and then spend the whole time wishing you'd gotten something else. Standouts are the boa boa buns made the chargrilled skirt steak, lobster rangoons, Hanoi ribs, fish tacos... More

Thank you 475JPS for your review. We definitely have a unique spin on Maine seafood like the lobster rangoons, (a guest favorite) fish tacos, and the seared scallops with herb yogurt! For indecisive people, or people who love all food, the small plates menu is perfect! For those who know exactly what they want, we still offer more traditional entrees,... More

Another of the Kennebunk Resort group or whatever they call themselves. Unfortunately they now own a number of restaurants that are all (except for Ocean) equally dreadful. This one takes the cake. The menu makes no sense and the food is greasy, overdone or still frozen. Service is excellent however and a glass of Pinot Noir had to be from... More
