Great family restaurant. I come here for breakfast and lunch. Friendly service and the food is consistently good year after year. I have come here a few dozen times since 1985.

The four of us just grabbed drinks and a quick snack of Potato Skins Deluxe and Chowder, but everything was yummy! Bluetini and Blueberry Ale are must haves! Wait staff friendly and attentive even though we weren't there for full meals. We'll visit again when we're hungrier!

Visited last week. Had a great lobster roll and bisque. Very good. Would recommend highly. Had been here once before on another visit to Maine and the lunch is as good as it was then.

Second time having supper at Alisson's. DELICIOUS lobster rolls (according to my two family members) and myself. Instead of chips or fries I went with the potato salad (also tasted like the stuff only your momma could make). We were seated quickly and the waitress was very attentive. Not pretentious and feels like it's definitely a restaurant you could bring... More

Our group had the lobster roll, clam chowder and fish sandwich. Lobster roll was full of very sweet lobster, clam chowder was some of the best and fish sandwich was huge and good. Would go back. Service was friendly also.

Love this place. Great New England atmosphere and the best blueberry pie ever! If you want a real taste of New England this is the place to come!

Our first dinner in Alisons and we chose lobster rolls based on reviews. Note that I've had a baked and a boiled lobster in the last week, but the Allisons lobster roll was as good as it gets. Also the atmosphere and service were both great. Highly recomendened.

Kennebunkport is a beautiful small town in Maine. On Dock Square you will find Alisson's. This is a popular restaurant, serving a good variety of wholesome food. The staff are really good, cheerful and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. Looking around all the food served seemed to be being well received by other patrons. We were there at lunchtime...

Really impressed how good the food was, and warm and attentive service given to a large group when we dined in the upstairs party room. The restaurant doesn't look like a foodie joint, but everything on the menu turned out super. Impressed by the clam chowder, the server showed me their order card for FedEx'ing chowder from Maine next time... More
