Although we were happy to find a place to seat us on Columbus Day weekend, I cannot say that the experience was anything more than mediocre. When in New England, I love friend clams -and these were perhaps the worst I had ever had: small, chewy and dry. The service was perfunctory. The atmosphere was fine, and perhaps we were... More

We had a lovely lunch experience of local seafood and cocktails on the beautiful Kennebunk river watching the river flow.

Although the restaurant was not very busy on a Friday night, we were seated at a table under an uncomfortable air blast and asked to move, as did everyone seated there after us. Although the view of the harbor was lovely, the food was a big disappointment. The Caesar salad looked and tasted like it had been prepared days earlier.... More

My wife and I ate here twice on vacation. First time was for lunch. They have seating out on deck, outside in a more covered area, and inside. We sat outside, but not directly in the sun. Beautiful view of the river. nice atmosphere. I had fried haddock sandwich, wife had fish cakes, both of which were very good. We... More

Saturday night in Kennebunkport looking for a place to eat without waiting 45 minutes? That's what we were doing when we stumbled upon this restaurant. We were shown to a table immediately. Menus appeared and the drinks we ordered arrived swiftly. The waitress was knowledgeable about the specials and the items on the menu. The meals arrived promptly. Hot food... More

This place has amazing stuffed haddock and clam chowder. Too bad it is always cold. I say that after 3 visits. Last night, I asked to please make sure it was hot. Well, not only not hot, but fish had spots of not being cooked through. It was not very busy and there was no excuse for this. We were... More

A friend who grew up in NE said we had to go there and he was right. Comfortable old wood, classic good fresh seafood, and good service.

Ate lunch after a sail on the Schooner Eleanor. Nice bar with decent selections. The food is overpriced and average at best. You can get better all over the area. I suggest you skip it.

We dined at The Arundel Ward last night and had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend. Please note the restaurant closes for the winter starting in a few days.

We had dinner here twice over the Columbus Day weekend. As it was cool, we ate inside the cosy dining room overlooking the harbor. We sampled over the two visits the lazy lobster, the shoreman's pie, the swordfish and the Greek style shrimp scampi. All were quite delicious. The servers were cheerful and helpful and did a great job to... More
