On the water at the harbor entrance

Dined here on a relatively slow weekend night. Staff pleasant and attentive, food choices were varied, and we both enjoyed our lobster and swordfish entrees. Nice view, nice experience.

So, for a romantic cocktail overlooking the water and a light bite, you can't beat this setting. Service is good and friendly, ambiance nice, furniture comfortable. But the food just falls short a bit. However, my husband and I know we're picky because we like to cook ourselves, so want something special when we go out. And this evening's meal... More

I ate at Stripers while staying at the Breakwater. The food and the service were very good. They have a variety of options that seemed to cover a variety of tastes. I chose to have the lobster pasta one night and was not disappointed. The brussel sprouts are also quite tasty. Service was friendly and attentive.

This is Kennebunkport at its finest--Adirondack chairs looking out over the inlet, lobster boats and fishermen coming in to the dock, the wonderful aroma of ocean air and great homemade cocktails! Go to Stripers an hour before your meal so you can enjoy the waterfront view. Make reservations. Dinner was excellent and the lazy man's lobster was divine! We had... More

On a chilly October Sunday evening I arrived. A bit of confusion on my part ensued when I discovered that the restaurant is completely separate from the associated hotel, although next door, and the parking lot is "hidden" behind the shops associated with the hotel and comes with tow away signs for parking without the hotel's provided registration. What to... More

Ate dinner here with my husband and 2 year old on Saturday night. Pretty empty when we were there so it was quiet. The food was delicious and the presentation was so fancy. You can't go wrong with anything you order - even the kids' menu was great (my picky toddler ate her vegetable!). The roasted veggie appetizer, clam chowder... More

I ordered the mushroom pasta and it was my favorite meal of the week long trip except for lobster. my husband ordered the lazy man's lobster (already out of the shell) and he was disappointed that it seemed like such a small portion. overall we were very pleased with the meal.

We have also had needlessly unpleasant dining experiences at Stripers. The food is good and the view is fabulous. However, very frequently they tell you tables are reserved and several of the nice view tables lay empty for hours. Or you call and the manager tells you to come at a ridiculous hour and then you are leaving a couple... More

Stripers has a lobster special all day on Wednesday and Thursday. You can choose a lobster appetizer and a lobster main course off a special menu for $25, and it's a very good deal. The lobster dishes are varied and well prepared. The service was excellent and the wine list pairs well with the menu at very reasonable prices, especially... More

Went to dinner with friends on a recent Saturday night. We had made reservations with Open Table. Our table was ready when we arrived. Nice water view. They have a nice wine by the glass, beer and cocktail selection. My wife and both felt that the wine pour was skimpy. The bread in the basket was very dry. Not sure... More
