Great view of the marina

Always crowded and smack in the middle of the action. The lobster salad is really a must try. Outside deck is covered and nice

This is what a small town harborside restaurant in Maine should be. Simple atmosphere, good traditional food, friendly staff, on the water, and a few touches to bring it above "basic Maine". We had lunch here pre-season in May, under the tent because it was 57 deg outside with a breeze off the ocean. Comfy inside, heaters running..you could also... More

We were looking forward to a nice lunch there after a wonderful two hour sail. The dinning room was closed for lunch. We sat on the outside deck. The view is beautiful on the river. It was terribly windy and the table wobbled. It made it tough to keep the napkins and glassware in place. The food was okay. I... More

I come from Vermont to Kennebunkport almost every year and no stop would be complete without drinks at the Arundel Wharf - a huge beautiful deck overlooking the river/harbor with great "Adirondack" chairs in which to enjoy your drink while soaking in the Maine view. The food is good but the atmosphere is unparalleled. It is a special place.....

The best way to describe the Arundel Wharf would be variety. There are three dining areas, all with different feel/noise level and recently all three share the same menu. ( In the past, a small app/sandwich menu was served on the deck) The Deck is loud and fun, during the day its sunny. IF you need a shady spot, they... More

If you want to sit back and have a cocktail while watching the boat traffic go up and down the river, there is no better place than Arundel Wharf. Have to try the sun spot while you are there.

The location is well worth it. The food is just ok. The drinks are pricey but the location makes up for it all. Sit on the deck and watch the boats go by.

Arrive when the restaurant opens so that you have your choice of tables on the deck overlooking the river and active yachting harbor. If you don't want sun, the umbrellas fix the problem. But if you prefer, you can also eat indoors. But there's nothing like sitting at the water's edge eating a lobster roll -- one of the best... More
