We walked in and it is small, but neat! sports antiques hanging everywhere, eclectic looking. Like a seafood shanty with creativity. There was a wait so they asked if we wanted to eat at the bar. Not my thing, so we declined. After waiting a few minutes, the waitress offered to serve us in the waiting area. There was a... More

Cozy Maine eatery right on the ocean. It's tiny, friendly and the food is really good. It's very casual and mostly local.

We had lunch here. Lively and upbeat atmosphere. Casual with sports and political items displayed everywhere, including ceiling. Brought back memories while enjoying a delicious lunch. Pier 77 is upstairs and is a quieter place, which we checked out. We would have eaten at 77 if we had more time. Good photo opps outside.This bar and restaurant was one of... More

We happened upon The Ramp this Spring while my husband was exploring hidden gems of Maine from a photography book. This little hide-away was perfect to shoot a fisherman coming in for the day, lobster boats and goat island. The buoys on the Ramp exterior are perfect Maine and the Row boats in a row along the parking lot a... More

Absolutely love this place! We go every time we visit the area. Food is great, atmosphere is fabulous. They don't take reservations so go early or be prepared to wait - but it is worth the wait!

If you don't look around the corner you may miss this oasis. Has a few seats in the ramp area that over look the small inlet bay behind the restaurant. A great place to meet up with folks and share in the atmosphere and destination.

This restaurant is a tough one to get into during high season, but easier to get into before or after prime. It is a small place, that has lots of sports and marine paraphenialia. It is fun, and has great food and great service. We always make a point to visit here in the fall. The seafood stew is delicious...and... More

Staying in Kennebunkport, and this was recommended by a few locals. We went for a late night dinner and we weren't disappointed. We had the burger and the pulled pork- both were delicious. Wish we had been earlier in the day and could have enjoyed the view. Definitely a go to place if you're in the area

Away from the crowds our group really enjoyed this place Service was good and menu had good variety. At our table, we had lobster roll, fish and chips and fried clams. The clams were some of the best I have had. Interesting décor and lots of things to look at on the wall. Would return for sure, well worth it
