Good food and great service

We had a fabulous dinner with the Mediterranean stew and halibut, a couple of salads and blueberry pie. It's nice to look out at the water even thigh it is more of a marsh. Our waitress was fantastic and friendly. It's such a friendly town. It's not cheap but it's not as expensive as other places... read more

Oh no! Reserved table well in advance & many open tables available; spoke to hostess about where seated but we were placed in the tiniest table in the corner. It sucked! Regardless of how good food might have been or how good service was/wasn't, I was overwhelmingly disappointed. Would not recommend unless this place was the ONLY choice!

with high expectations we went out for a splurge dinner while in Kennebunkport. Hurricane was not the place to try. Outdated menu of foods that caught the appeal of our grandparents 30 years ago. Nothing fresh or exciting. Our swordfish and halibut entrees were so tough and chewy, more like fish jerky than fresh caught seafood. One of us had... More

We visited the Hurricane on a rainy cold day in June. We decided to eat at the bar and were very happy we did. The bartender was very friendly and attentive. We started with a drink and an order of oysters. My husband said the Spinney Creek oysters from Kittery were some of the best he has ever had! We... More

Hurricane is a great choice if you're in Kennebunkport. Unpretentious New England ambiance and views overlooking the river. Good service and excellent seafood. Try the seafood stew piled high with lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp, and scallops.

I would come back. They have a decent small plate menu and a nice cocktail menu. They did a nice version of a mojito. It was a really big mojito that was alcohol generous. The price for the drinks and the small plates was doable. Less than 10.00 for my drink. Service was way good. Atmosphere was nice casual quiet.

On a recent Satuday night we arrived without reservations and were promptly seated despite that fact! Lucky? Turns out NO. Although I am not one for spices, this food was the most bland I have ever had. It was also overpriced. My husband had the Mediterranean Stew, big disappointment! I tasted the lobster part which I found to be tough... More

We visited this Hurricanes Restaurant in Kennebunport on June 18, 2015. Food was mediocure at best and service was very slow. On top of that, it was very expensive. North of $200 for my wife and I. It was my birthday and we were hoping for a great meal. NOT.

A wide variety of sea foods plus burgers and other meats. Very tasty Hurricane Garlic Shrimp. Portions good, service friendly and efficient. Views are gorgeous out over the water. Very reasonably priced too.
