Second visit to this location. Arrived during Happy Hour. Pleasantly surprised to find 1/2 price on wine and draft beers. Discounted tapas menu. Very fun trying wine that you might not at full price.Tapas were excellent. Lively outdoor space, people watching. Waiters attentive and friendly.

My husband and I come here regularly. The staff are friendly and very willing to help with wine selections; in addition, you can taste wines before ordering. The revised menu is more extensive and is appealing. Atmosphere is great, and you can have a table outside near the fire pit, or indoors. My only wish is that they would change... More

Super Happy Hour spot! The drink selection is one of the best in the area and the small plates and flatbreads are very good. A recent expansion upstairs gives it much needed extra seating and a beautiful second bar area. You can sit outside by the firepit in the evening and meet some locals too.

Our group of ten recently had dinner at Old Vines and my overall impression was very good as the flatbread pizza I had was very tasty and everyone at the table had positive things to say about their selections (mussels, chicken meatballs, Caesar salad, etc.) . A couple next to us ordered the Cobb Salad and it was HUGE. We... More

A great place to go for after-work drinks, late night tapas, or a full meal. Everything on the menu is wonderful, and the atmosphere is very comfortable, both indoors and out. I can't recommend this lace enough.

My wife and I had several glasses of wine at this place. They have a pretty good wine menu. They also have a great cheese selection. They serve small plates. We tried the chicken meatballs and olives. The meatballs were delicious. The happy hour went from 5:00-6:00 and you get half price beer and wine by the glass. They did... More

My husband and I loved Old Vines during our visit to Kennebunk. We could walk from our B&B and it was a wonderful, private atmosphere with great wines and tapas options. We sat outside around a fire pit and staying much longer than we had planned. Loved it!!
