We walked by so many times over the years but never went in. This time we wanted a break from our 'Kennebunkport routine' and as most of our regular restaurants were closed we decided to try Bandaloop. What a pleasant surprise.

we loved this place filled with friendly locals and delicious food -- we had a spinach salad with warm vegetables and specialty tacos. They have a good selection of locally crafted beer and wine. Informal friendly and warm place is a great place to be on a cold damp night

Great food - steaks to tempeh to mac and cheese - all excellently prepared with substitutions and accommodations available. Scott and the Crew will make a meal that you will enjoy. Great waitstaff and good selection of beers and wines. Worth saving up for a regular night out and always our anniversary dinner location. Reservations a must.

Besides dining here throughout the year we decided to have our company Christmas party here for the second year in a row. Scott & Bridget owners were great to work with. They set up a great menu of appetizers entrée and dessert we were 29 guests. Everything came out hot fresh and on time we love dining here, the atmosphere... More

Atmosphere is an old farm house/barn that's tastefully redone and dimly lit. Great atmosphere; can see kitchen, awesome staff. Food is amazing. Great bar but has no tvs which makes you talk to people! Would go here and be happy anytime.

This is a small place with rustic table settings. We enjoyed sitting at the 12 seat bar. I had the special Prelude weekend cocktail and my husband had a microbrew draft. Brief menu offered a soup and four sandwiches. The autumn squash apple soup was thick and hearty. The lobster puff pastry was warm and tasty. Lunch on Prelude Saturday... More

A cool location, friendly & chill service. The food was GREAT. Had an artfully presented kale salad, tasted delicious, and two tacos, both yummy, followed by really solid dessert. Pound cake with cranberry-ginger sauce for me, blueberry crisp for my husband. We devoured them!

We enjoyed the food and service. Very tasty and well prepared seafood. The original recpies and use of different spices makes for a different experience but an open mind is required...not your run of the mill regular seafood and that is exactly what we were looking for.

This is not your average restaurant by any means. They try to obtain local and organic foods and the menu changes with what is available. I have eaten there more than a dozen times over the years and have never been dissapointed with the small plates, or the main entres. The desserts are fantastic. They have a significant liquor and...

Went to dinner there on a cold evening. The place was hopping with people. Appeared to be a local favorite. Ordered there version of mac and cheese and Oh my God how good it was! I would recommend a visit there for dinner if in the area.
