Hurricane in the center of Kennebunkport may seem like a tourist trap but it is actually good food at reasonable prices. Ambiance is pleasant with a view of the inlet and service is good. We had oysters which were served from three different regions so...More

We had dinner overlooking the water at sunset and enjoyed great wine, great food, and great service. The wine list is reasonable with good options. The seafood stew was awesome! Very nice atmosphere. Eat here!

I believe the Hurricane is now getting by on it's name and past reputation. I read good reviews on TripAdvisor about the Hurricane and we decided to check it out for lunch upon our arrival in the Village. What a disappointment! They call that a...More

First off, I know that food at this restaurant is excellent. For that reason, my sister made a reservation for a party of 9 one month in advance. When we arrived for our reservation, we were told that the table that would accomodate us had...More

Hurricane has a menu that aims high, and prices that aim even higher. The menu and service are precious, and with entrees priced as high as 35-40 dollars (with waitstaff upselling throughout the meal), I'd encourage passing on the Hurricane experience.

It often seems that places with beautiful views have lousy food. Not here. We just came for lunch after hiking in the Rachel Carson reserve. A bit pricy, though. But the view from air conditioned space made it worth it.

We've eaten at Hurricanes on several occasions and always enjoy the great view, right on the water! The menu changes daily depending on what's available, always fresh and nicely presented.

We have a second home in Kennebunkport so we go to Hurricane often. Locals like to sit at the high tops in the front bar. The menu is extensive and you can order anything from a burger to a lobster. It is not cheap and...More

Came here for lunch during the fourth of July vacation week. The restaurant was not even close to full, yet the hostess seemed nonplussed by the size of our party (six people) and had a bit of an attitude about stowing my daughter's (compact) umbrella...More

Not sure. Every time my wife and I have gone it was for dinner and we did not see too many children. Young adults and teenagers yes, but not small children.

Dinner menu continuously changes. Market rate applies to some items. Best to check web site. Also, I would suggest an early dinner. The lunch menu is served until 3:30, and the portions are dinner sized and a great deal.
