“Okay Food - Small Portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The atmosphere is fun, and the food is good, but I guess I was just disappointed with the very small portion. When fish and chips is the Friday night special one expects a big portion and not a smaller then lunch size serving. My dinner partner also thought portion was small.

“Won't go back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We tried Torches when they first opened in Kennebunk, and we are very unlikely to go there again. We went for lunch about 2 pm when it was entirely empty; ordered a salad and a grilled cheese & avocado sandwich. The service was phenomenally slow, at least half an hour to get those two simple items to the only guests in the place! When the manager stopped by the table to check in, and I mentioned the microscopically thin avocado in the sandwich, she retorted that avocados are expensive, as if they hadn't decided on their own where to price the sandwich! And $8 for a pedestrian grilled cheese sandwich seems plenty pricey, even with a couple of shreds of avocado. We like to patronize local businesses, but this one lost us.

“Comfortable and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Went there For my 30th class reunion - They catered every thing. All the food was great, bar prices very reasonable. Enjoyed it so much went back the next night 9/25 and had dinner sitting at the bar. I had steak tips and my girlfriend had chicken fingers and a wedge salad. Bartender was friendly and service was fast. The game was on the 3 flat screens. There outdoor patio is beautiful with torches and fire pit. I will go back. A fun spot. Could easily become a local hangout.
