Went to the Stripers waterside Restaurant for Thanksgiving. We stayed at the Yatchsmen lodge and marina. Being Thanksgiving I ordered Turkey Dinner.... What a bad mistake that was. When the meal was brought to me I could not believe they had the nerve to serve that mess to me. The meal looked like left over from someone who couldn't finish... More

Visited on Thanksgiving Day after traditional dinner earlier. Every appetizer and entree delicious. Lobster Stew, Clam Chowder, Caesar Salad all excellent. Entrees were all amazing. Thank you for a great meal. We will be regulars...

Stripers is a casual restaurant located in the Breakwater Inn. The swordfish with kale served over quinoa pancake was overcooked. Three people at our table could not finish it. Steam muscles were so so. Fish and chips was good. Bread served was stale. Pumpkin creme brûlée was forgettable. The wine menu was surpassingly good given the mediocre food. Our wine... More

Service was outstanding and the food was tasty. Tried the lazy lobster, yum! Try the cheese cake, nice and fluffy and full of flavor. The view was great, watched the sun set during dinner.

We went for dinner at 5 PM and the restaurant was empty (in October, off season). The food was delicious, the lobster buttery and tender. Their Pumpkin Ale was probably the best seasonal beer I've had. Couple that with view of the ocean & inlet and it was perfect

We certainly were lucky with places we ate in Kennebunkport and Stripers was no exception. The lobsters we ordered were huge and the meat simply melted in our mouths. A great place for cocktails as well. Try the Angry Girlfriend for a drink with a real kick! We're definitely coming back to Kennebunkport and Stripers will be a place we'll... More

Made a reservation on the recommendation of the hotel and wasn't disappointed. The food here is excellent. The menu was not extensive but had enough to tempt you. Had Chowder to start which was really good. and then followed it by the Ravioli which was superb - this is close to fine dining and i thoroughly recommend it too.

We visited early on a Sunday evening after driving around for a while to find a parking place. The restaurant is associated with the Breakers Inn, so you can park there without fear of getting towed. We enjoyed the variety of seafood and other items on the menu. I had a large bowl of steamed mussels, my husband had sole,... More
