If you are looking for a restaurant with quality food, and decent service, Stripers is not the place. Went on a Sunday night, and inquired about specials, and were told, not on a Sunday night after a holiday! That must of been the reason for the poorly prepared main courses as well. One item on the menu, lobster tagliatelle with... More

By far, one if the best outdoor locations. We enjoyed great service, friendly wait staff. Food was pretty good, but not outstanding. They accommodated us on a fully reserved night at a table near the bar, so we could watch the World Cup game.

We arrived at 6PM on Friday with a toddler and without a reservation. They gave us a nice table by the bar. Overall the service was spot-on and the food was excellent. This was the best meal of our trip. My wife ordered the boiled two-pound lobster, which was one of the best lobsters we've eaten. You would think a... More

Every table has a water view. It's a great place to have dinner and watch the sunset. The staff are very polished and accommodating. I had the brussel sprouts and roasted carrot ravioli. My husband had the redfish. We ordered a dessert to share and didn't care for it. When we mentioned we didn't like it, the waitress quickly removed... More

It was a beautiful afternoon so we sat on the deck overlooking the Kennebunk River. A quiet respite from the madness of Dock Square. The maitre d and the waiter were friendly and accommodating Enjoyed a lovely glass of wine and a fish taco. I will definitely return.

The view from the deck is beautiful and the bar is a classy place to have cocktails. Other than that the food is average at best. I wouldn't recommend.

Right by the water on patio. Had fabulous fish ad chips. All of the staff were welcoming and friendly. Had gone last year on visit to area and looked it up as we had enjoyed it so much.

Overall the food was good but we found the menu (which was grouped by type of food instead of courses) misleading. The beef dish my husband ordered turned out to be an appetizer and not an entree. I ordered the crispy Brussels sprouts but it was burnt and very bitter. I did like the red fish entree and the carrot... More

A group of friends went with my spouse & me to Stripers recently; we'd hoped for a sunny evening to sip pre-dinner drinks and watch the boats go by but the cold rain pushed us into the bar. The bartender is a pro at mixing cocktails- a nice prelude to dinner. For the 6 of us, there were 4 very... More
