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.

Nice place to dine

Good service, food and views. Not quite excellent food, but a nice place to go on a sunny day. I had the salad nicoise......I would recommend having one of the entrees instead

It started with our drinks which took approx. 10 min. Then into the food which was just bad. It was bland and just thrown onto a plate. It was also expensive. You can do much better in Kennebunkport.

Our server was so friendly and not pushy even though we arrived a little later in the evening! She split our meal up into three courses and the food... More

We eat here at least once every time we visit Kennebunkport and we love it. The food is always fresh and delicious. The view and service is excellent as well.

We enjoyed a quiet lunch on the deck of this restaurant while watching the boating activity on the Kennebunk river. The service was good and our meals were fine as well.

Great view, good service, so-so food. Lobster cakes were ok, kale-quinoa-cranberry salad was very good (I would hope so, it's just a salad), lobster stew was a watery abomination. Would not go back.
