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.

While staying at the Breakwater Inn and Spa, my family and I were determined to eat OFF property but found ourselves low on time a couple of times. Lucky us!

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

A must do in Kennebunkport!

At the time, they offered a $25 special that included an appetizer and main course. The presentation of the appetizers was good (2 lobster cakes and lobster stew). I found the lobster stew to be quite liquefied, and after 2 scoops there was nothing left but broth. The fresh Maine lobsters were very good. The restaurant is nice; the staff... More

We had drinks and apps at happy hour here on a Monday. We were pleasantly surprised by the band on the lawn which provided entertainment. The patio seats offered spectacular waterviews, and it looked like that was typical of all seats in the restaurant. We were very happy with the apps and drinks. Service was adequate and prices were decent.... More

Yes, two hours. The waitress was lovely but helpless in the face of some unexplained kitchen problem. When the food came, some of it was tasty, and some of it was unremarkable.
