Stripers features local seafood on the water with a sunset view of the river and ocean, private beach, and a waterside bar. Have a drink and an appetizer in one of our adirondack chairs on our lawn, or come inside for a great meal, with plenty of options for those who would prefer an alternative to seafood.

We were staying at the hotel and decided to have dinner here simply due to the convenience and the fact the menu looked pretty diverse. There is high end seafood, but also much more. The decor is pretty plain and the ambiance not really exciting. The food, however, was to die for. My wife enjoyed a pork plate consisting of... More

We had a near perfect night at Striper's on a snowy Maine night this week. We came in through the back door from the snowy parking lot with chiseled walls of plowed snow to a warm and cozy bar where we had dinner fireside. We took advantage of the 2 for $20 promotion for the month of February. It is... More

My husband a I were staying at the Breakfree Inn and Spa and had dinner at this restaurant. It was delicious. We had the salmon and the pork belly both were fantastic. I just wish we had room for dessert. The staff were amazing!!!

Went with a party of 4 on January 3rd. This place is in a hotel. Very neat and nice inside. Actually looks a bit pricer than the Taverns menu would lead you to believe. It was off season in Kennebunkport for sure so very quiet, almost had the place to ourselves. The location is on the water, very nice spot,... More

On a recent trip we had a late lunch at this restaurant and we really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We sat outside on the deck and there was a decent view of the water. The food was outstanding, my wife had the lobster tacos and she still talks about them months later!

On a recent weekend stay at a quaint Kennebunkport bed and breakfast, my wife and I received a recommendation for dinner at Stripers. The menu we were shown at our inn seemed quite reasonable in comparison to some of the other neighborhood restaurants. Unfortunately, prices were quite different when we arrived at the restaurant. We began with two salads. I... More

A botched dinner reservation at our hotel ended with dinner at Stripers. Our concern over the unknown quickly disappeared. Wonderful atmosphere. Good service. Interesting menu. Our food was delicious and prepared well. Good wine list.

Watch the boats sail by, see the ocean in the distance, watch the large aquarium in the bar, but come for the service and food. Wonderful staff that took care of us from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. You can always spot great service when the staff does not point you in the direction of the... More

This is our plan: we order our take out lobsters from Port Lobster across the street and about an hour before pick up, we head to Stripers for a cocktail and watch the sunset. GORGEOUS!
