We did a tour to Kennebunkport while visiting Portland on a cruise. Allison's was recommended by our tour driver and it was the perfect choice! I wanted to eat lobster as much as possible on our trip and this was THE BEST lobster roll of the trip. It was larger than a traditional hot dog bun and the portion of... More

We were driving up the Maine coast and many restaurants were already closed for the season so we stopped and ask a police officer for a recommendation. He suggested Allison's and he was correct!! Best clam chowder I ever had! And the lobster was delicious! All the food the four of us got was great. And the restaurant was very... More

Have been here 3 times and is a great place. Brought 12 people with me this year and they have us the upstairs room. One of the best lobster rolls and offer a variety of types. Also had a good selection of beers including a favorite in Bar Harbour Blueberry Ale. Recommending going here whenever I'm the area!

My family and I were visiting the delightful city of Kennebunkport. We came upon this neat restaurant and decided to give it a try. Best decision ever. The server started out a little brash but soon our southern mannerisms won him over! Heretofore I would have told you I don't like lobster-something about the texture..... but I was wrong. Their...

Greeted very politely. Blood Mary wasn't as pictured and was average. Clam chowder was excellent. Lobster roll was generous however I should have paid more attention that it was served cold. Fries were crunchy but not a lot were given. Overall good quality food but would have expected more per serving for price.

Went for dinner and got seated straight away, our server was friendly and attentive. I had the fish & chips, my husband the seafood risotto both very tasty, we shared the blueberry pie which was delicious. Reasonably priced.

The restaurant was crowded for lunch & dinner and could only attest to the food. I had both the steamers, mussels, fried shrimp, and the Wild Maine Blueberry cobbler. I even recommended it to friendly strangers we met during our time there. While there are many restaurants in town this was the only one we visited more than once.

Thank Jennifer L
