Whether dining at the bar, on the lawn or the patio or dining area, I have never been disappointed. The aim is upscale and sophisticated and they deliver. Creative menu with full range of tastes considered.

Good food, atmosphere and highly recommend visiting. The venue overlooks a nice lawn onto the Kennebec river and over to the shoreline/nearby beach. Sunset was incredible and once full darkness set in, we saw sky lanterns released form a nearby beach that added a nice highlight to the dinner.

We had drinks behind the restaurant at sunset - it was the perfect way to end a perfect day. Can't wait to go back and actually try the restaurant next time.

Dear DianaGHartley, The back lawn and "Chairs at Stripers" are the perfect spot to be in Kennebunkport. Yes, certainly do come back and try the restaurant but we also offer a menu of small bites just for the lawn area. Naz Jenulevich Director of Operations More

Stripers came recommended by a good friend/coworker who lives in Kennebunk. I wanted a nice meal w/ a great view. Stripers didn't disappoint. We had cocktails on the lawn prior to our rez. Look out for the Goombay Smash - delicious but dangerous! Our dining was quite nice w/ an app of petit brussel sprouts and bbq dusted cauliflower bites.... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with excellent food and service. We especially liked that they would remove your lobster from its shell for only $2 more.

This was a family visit with a party of 8. We had reservations during the busy season and everything arrived perfectly. Fried scallops amazing, the ravioli was tasty, but the carrot purée that accompanied it was a little sweet,but still excellent. Everyone's meals were excellent and the portions were just right, not toooooooo large, perfect. The service was great and... More
