“Best chowder ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We arrived at Gran's just as the owner was locking up early but she opened up again just for us to buy some clam chowder. It was absolutely delicious.

“Best clam chowder going!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I just discovered Gran's Chowder House tucked in the rear of a little shopping area facing Ocean Avenue in beautiful Kennebunkport at Dock Square. We had wonderful, truly wonderful, clam chowder. Classic chowder rich in clams and flavor. I also had a turkey gobbler panini which was excellent. Great taste and plentiful. Tucking away half of the sandwich for later, I could not pass up the homemade blue berry pie a la mode--perhaps the best ever. I'lll be back soon and often.

“Great homemade seafood&dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

Awesome blueberry pie and superb chicken salad sandwich. Delightful service as well. The young owner said that most items were her grandmother's receptors.

“tucked away gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

this little hole in the wall place can easily missed. Tried it after getting reviews here at Trip Advisor. The lobster roll was very good and the service was friendly. It is in town and right next to Ben and Jerrys. What more do you want. They have nice picnic tables in the court yard where they bring your food out to you.
