Good Bar Food

Great local bar in an ideal downtown location. Right in the heart of dock square. It doesn't feature the River views of some of the other spots. But in terms of local bar food, its solid. The clam chowder is excellent, comparable to most seafood houses. There are ample selections of... read more

Huge lobster rolls! A must-stop in Kennebunkport. The nachos are fabulous- enough for a large group to share. Clam chowder in their signature mug is also delicious!

This is one of our go-to places in Kennebunkport. It's popular with locals and visitors alike, for good reason. The menu is broad (something for everyone), servings are plentiful, prices are reasonable, quality is excellent, atmosphere is relaxed, and... IMHO they have the best lobster roll in town! We were staying nearby, and ate here twice in one day. Truly.... More

After an afternoon of shopping on a cold December Saturday, we stopped in for apps, soup and an ale and relaxed for a bit. The food and drinks were good, the bartender friendly and the atmosphere welcoming.

Local bar and restaurant with good food, beer on tap, and friendly service. Extensive renovations planned for January. Should make it even better.

Good food and reasonably priced. Lively low key atmosphere in center of town. Service is fast. Drinks are cold. Nothing fancy but very friendly staff.

We ate here several times. The food is fantastic. Service is exceptional. Their blueberry pie was off the charts. We ate there for lunch and dinner several times and would finish up the evening with a cider and the blueberry pie with ice cream.
