Although I have been to this restaurant many times, I was disgusted the other evening when I ordered fried clams. Market price was $40, some twenty dollars higher than other area restaurants (Mabel's, Pier 77, etc.). When I asked if they were big-bellied clams, I was told yes. In fact, when they arrived, the bellies were tiny. The waitress was... More

My family and I had lunch here on a beautiful, hot, sunny Maine Friday. The service was super friendly and the food was delicious. We got the lazy man's lobster (cooked perfectly), the lobster roll (good but not the best I have had), the mussels (very yummy and not a grain of sand), several bowls of clam chowder (nice and...

Nice deck overlooking the Kennebunk River. The Crab Rangoon Dip was great, as was the salmon special. The scallops were just OK

This is such a cozy restaurant. We stopped in on a RAINY Saturday evening for clam chowder. I ended up having the lobster stew, and I am hooked. I only wish it was closer to Virginia! The service was excellent and the views are lovely!

We were there last evening and we all enjoyed our meals. Haddock dinner, 2 Shrimp Scampi and a Seafood Casserole. They were absolutely delicious. The Seafood Casserole had big pieces of lobster & etc. The staff was awesome as always. We had reservations for 6:30pm and boy did that place fill up fast. Wish they were open year round. We...

I had a great blackened swordfish sandwich. Get there early, the place filled up rapidly even though we visited on a weekday. Parking sucks.

Tried a new place last night while on vacation, but was extremely disappointed. It's a pretty place and the staff is nice and friendly, but the main dishes were just lousy. The corn bread and rolls were great, so was the clam chowder, lobster stew and the salads, but the mains, ugh!! The Pasta Melange cream sauce was like glue... More

Worth a stop just for the view of the harbor and sail boats. Great lobster roll, Haddock sandwich and their special Rum punch. Rustic setting with nice indoor and outdoor seating options.
