Elegant but relaxed surroundings. Delicious menu and range of drinks. Not overpriced for the quality of food. Attentive waiting staff. Can definitely recommend.

My girlfriend and I were in ME for a wedding, and it just happened to be her birthday, as well. I contacted Lucien (Restaurant Manager) at Stripers, and asked if we could have a table for two by the window for dinner. Lucien took the reservation and said it would be taken care of. Upon arrival, we were greeted by... More

We went on a Sunday night for an early dinner and they sat us at a floor to ceiling window table looking out at the ocean and Kennebunk River. Wait staff were very attentive. Menu was small but it was very tasty. I loved the lobster taco as an appetizer but I would have love to have 2 for my... More

It was just so-so. Actually I ordered the duck and when they brought it out it was way after my husband's meal had come and it was over-cooked. I told them it wasn't acceptable and they said it was the last duck plate. I had a feeling that they had pushed it on several people. Never again.

Dear Chrissy, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Food quality is something that we take seriously and are sorry that your duck wasn't acceptable. Our team tries hard to predict the number of each dish we will serve at night and sometimes our estimates are a little off. We do hope that you will... More

Had a great lunch with awesome view of the river. Spent a couple hours enjoying the food and the scenery. Wait staff excellent. Mussels were awesome and the grilled salmon was cooked to perfection. Can't wait to go back.

Came here over Labor Day weekend. Had a really nice table by the window, seated on time, very pleasant service. The view is stunning, however, that is really what you are paying for and it is not enough to overcome the bland menu, mediocre food and blasé decor. Four of shared starters of Brussels sprouts and the salmon and goat... More

The location of this restaurant is great with water views of the river at the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. Great sunset views while boats are coming in from the ocean. We went early -- 5:30 p.m. -- for dinner and all of the tables have a view of the water. The service was outstanding and the food great. I... More

We went there with a group of 12 and chose outside seating which we regretted early on in our dining experience (5:30), but appreciated toward the latter part of the evening( 7:00 and on). The sunset view over the water was remarkably beautiful! I imagine that enjoying a cocktail in the Adirondack chairs on the front lawn overlooking the water... More

First the good. Delicious chowder and good bread. Nice view but should have some lights shining on the river after dark. We waited 45 minutes after our chowder and first drinks for our entrees to be served. My wife's Lazy Man Lobster looked like it came from a Howard Johnson's with fries and cole slaw. My steak, ordered medium, came... More
