The lobster roll

We had the best lobster roll here. it was filled with lobster. The roll was not thick bread. It was thin and not a hot dog bun. You could really taste the lobster. The clam chowder was good as well.

My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend in Kennebunkport and was fortunate to have breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. The food was great and only surpassed by the service! The hotel is a great place for a romantic weekend especially knowing you don't have to travel far for good food and drink! Kudos to the chef and staff... More

Oh WOW!!!!! That Maine Lobster dinner was DELICIOSO!!!!!! Service was great; the waiters were very timely & helpful in helping each one of us "shred" our lobster.

We had a very mediocre dinner here during our one night stay. The had a Filet and lobster special that was ok. The best part of the dinner was New England seafood chowder. Service was good and friendly.

We didn't dine in the restaurant but in the lounge. We had what we would not expect in this area - great ribs! Everything looked good that came out and our food was delicious. Staff is friendly and helpful

There was a wedding celebration happening during dinner time, and we "had" to have our dinner on the enclosed porch! What a delight! It was almost a private room as there were only two other couples there! So comfortable. The meal was wonderful and the staff were very attentive. It was our 1st anniversary and we are in our 70's!... More
