Lovely view of the port, friendly service.

We stopped here for lunch. The outside seating has lovely a view of the port. Service was a bit slow at first but was friendly and got better. The lunch menu had good choices and was reasonably priced for the area. The quality of the food was good. They had a full bar and my wife had a margarita... read more

One of our favorite places to bring guests for a cocktail on a sunny afternoon or early evening. Everyone is friendly, the place is laid back and the crowd relaxed. Service is good and the food, while only average, is sometimes good enough when you consider all the other benefits of this waterfront location. Locals put their boats into the... More

Delicious dinner in a comfortable and casual wharf setting. Had reservations, but we arrived early, and they were happy to seat us. Friendly staff and great food!

Here from Kentucky to experience Maine. We love clam chowder and this restaurant had the best! I challenge any other! This was full of tender clams, creamy, but not heavy, base and tender potatoes. I could have enjoyed the full pot!!! Our waiter is/was in training and did an excellent job! My husband had a lobster and it too was... More

The Wharf is a great place to enjoy lunch out on the deck overlooking the Kennebunk River. The food is very good and the beer very cold! Also a great place to enjoy the last ray of the sun for cocktail hour.

We've been coming to this restaurant for years, and it remains THE place for lunch on any nice day spring through fall [closed during the winter]. No lunch reservations, and if you're not seated by noon -- at the latest -- you'll have to wait. But most folks don't mind waiting, because there's a lovely outdoor area for sharing a... More

This restaurant is conveniently located on Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport and has a nice outdoor deck. The restaurant was busy so it suffered a little in terms of food quality and service since they were in a rush to get you in and out quickly. They need to work on improving that experience.

I thought the lobster bisque was especially good. As you would imagine, seafood is the highlight and it didn't disappoint.

Very cozy, nice view of the water from our table. The meal was delicious. I ordered a seafood pasta and they did not skimp on the scallops, shrimp, or crab. Server was attentive and personable.

Booked a special table 2 wks in advance..for a great view. It was a great view, kinda - it was low tide so it was really looking at mud flats not the ocean. Anyway...food - average to below average at best. Their special salad of the night ($10) was very good, husband had lobster stew (pretty good). It looked promising.... More
