“Beautiful place to hang out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We had late afternoon drinks here in early August. We sat outside where the weather was just perfect. There were quite a few people for the odd time of day, but it was fairly quiet and calm. A nice lazy afternoon stop.

“Nice night on the water”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Average food, nothing special. Location was great on the river. Drinks on the deck were fun and we met a family from New England.

“what a great place to relax, have a meal or just get a drink with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

I've been coming to Kennebunkport for summers all of my life and going to the Arundel Wharf for a bite or a drink has always been the sort of go to place for us... I love the atmosphere and being able to watch the boats and what's happening on the river while relaxing with friends and catching up. The food is reliably good and the portions generous! (there lobster stuffed avocado salad is Amazing and has tons of lobster meat) the service is usually friendly and warm... check it out, it'll be worth it

“What has happened to the Arundle Wharf?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

I have loved this restaurant for years but on August 9, 2014, I went there as usual with a guest. The clam chowder was cool, the bread for the salmon BLT was not toasted, at all, and the salmon was cool. The lobster on an avocado salad was soggy as though it had been frozen and just thawed and it was difficult to find any avocado. It was just about noon and not really busy yet, but it took forever to replace the salmon. What is going on? Big disappointment in the kitchen on this visit. I hope hey recover quickly as I love(ed) this place.

“Dinner ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Great view overlooking the river. The swordfish dinner was excellent. Tables to close together. Waitress was extremely helpful and friendly.
