We have been to Stripers several times over the years. This time we found the decor, the menu, the food, and the clientele largely downscaled. NO LONGER the place for comfortable well appointed tables, high end delicious food (like lobster bisque or exquisite rack of lamb), wonderful exclusive wine list...the kind of place you dress up for. Rather, the tables... More

We were looking forward to dining at Stripers on our visit to Kennebunkport based on reviews on Trip Advisor and other rating sites. Our experience was mediocre at best. We had a reservation and were welcomed when we checked in. We were shown to a very nice table with a great river view. 10 minutes later we pulled a server... More

Nice ambiance and food that was pretty good--definitely not great. Nice water view. Had to wait 25min despite a reservation but hanging at the nice bar made that not a problem . Not a bAd place at all, just nothing spectacular

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.
