“Always a great meal and excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

I am a local customer and decided to write a review about this restaurant. We dined at Allison's last evening and thought it should be recognized for the consistant great food and service. We eat there several times a month and we have never been disappointed with our meals or the service!

“Ate here 3 out of the 4 nights in kennebunkport!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2010

Ate at Alisson's 3 out of the 4 nights my boyfriend and I stayed in kennebunkport. we stayed in the off season so our hotel stays were relatively inexpensive. HOWEVER, because it is the off season not many restaurants are open for dinner late or even at all.

Alisson's ended up being our go to place. they were open for dinner til 10 most nights and their menu is full of options! we enjoyed appetizers, entrées, the pub style menu (burgers and sandwiches) and dessert (one night).

the first night it was the pan seared scallops which were sweet and about 10 scallops on the plate (usually places offer only 3-7 depending on size)! this was a very good meal for the price and very worth it. the second night we both enjoyed the pub salads which were HUGE! very filling and came with grilled chicken. the third night we both had the Mikey burgers and these were REALLY good burgers. they had that slight char flavor that one enjoys along with the juices of a well prepared burger. for an appetizer we had ordered the chicken tenders. these WERE NOT chicken tenders like how you may know them. they were chicken breasts cut in half then breaded in a homemade concoction of crumbs and spices then fried, but were in no way greasy! THESE WERE THE BEST TENDERS I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE.

Seriously give this place a try because I bet you'll go back!

To the chefs and kitchen staff: thank you for your hard work and really presenting your patrons with phenomenal food. you guys really don't get enough credit! so thank you and keep up the great food!

“IS THIS THE BEST RESTAURANT FOR LUNCH ON THE MAINE COAST??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

We went here twice. The food is why; it is awesome.
One time we had their Lobster Bisque which is really a Lobster Stew in a cup; they deliver it and you think, "well that is not much", and then you dig in. I swear there was a full lobster claw and a half in each mug; very rich; wonderful aroma and taste; an awesome treat.
So, a few days later on our way back down the coast we went out of our way to go there again; and we did. We could not wait to eat the bisque again; WRONG. They did not have it that day. So, we settled for their 1/2 lobster roll and clam chowder. How good was that??? AWESOME.
The service is outstanding; it has to be; there are so many people wanting to eat there including bus loads so they have to turn the tables but they don't make you feel like you are rushed. Simply put, this is great food; fair priced; and the location is right in town.
HINT: drop someone off to get a table and then go park the car; the parking is very limited; you may have to hike a few blocks; try parking over the footbridge; about 3 minutes away.

“Every time we visit Kennebunkport, we eat @ Allisson's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2010

Kennebunkport is a favorite Maine town, and Alisson's a favorite restaurant. Menu has so many options and it is all good. Service is great. Best ball game watching spot in the city too. Highly recommended.
