Good friends who frequented this restaurant often in the past gave glowing reviews regarding this restaurant. However, they were as disappointed as we were. There were six of us. Everybody's entrée was fair to poor. Biscuits were hard as rocks. Would not recommend.

Loved the seafood bake!! We also shared a gigantic appetizer that included every bit of seafood we could desire! Our most expensive meal out during our honeymoon but well worth it!

Great food, lovely atmosphere and harbour views. Book early for dinner if you want a window table. We were staying at Captain Jefferd's Inn so this was just over the road.

Went to Arundel Wharf last week. It was between the lunch and dinner hours. We ate on the covered deck area near the outside bar. Food was so-so. Thought the menu was rather expensive. Waitress was busy doing other things because business at that time was slow. The upside was being able to watch the fishing boats come in and... More

The restaurant is on the older side but offers seating with full window view of small marina. Delicious lobster meal

We happened upon this restaurant during our stay in Kennebunkport for a wedding. Although it was a bit cool and windy, we enjoyed sitting inside while enjoying wonderful New England meal while taking in the Harbor sights. We have never seen and of course eaten lobster sandwiches which were a loaded with lobster meat as we enjoyed here. Unbelievable! Don't... More

Unfortunately, we had already eaten lunch when we stumbled upon this terrific restaurant in Kennebunkport. It is tucked back somewhat away from the road and we almost missed it. We took in the waterfront charm and tranquility of this place and had a beverage at the bar. Lots of people were sitting around enjoying the beautiful weather and harbor scenery.... More

Such a nice spot to sit out overlooking the harbour and have a casual lunch and drink with a very pleasant server. For it being off-season, it was surprisingly busy. Although knowing the quality of the food and service, I'm really not that surprised. We only ate at Arundel's during our afternoon in Kennebunkport, so I can't compare it to... More

This is a fun, casual place with a view of the harbor and boats. The food was fine, especially for lunch, but nothing special. Service was competent, though not terribly friendly. If you want to sit on the deck with the view, avoid peak lunch or dinner hour. (We got stuck inside the plastic "tent"!)
