“nice lunch in classic Maine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Driving from mid-coast to Boston, we stopped in Bath to wander the historic port and streets. We found lunch at the Kennebec on the Kennebec River and enjoyed the sun and cool breeze. You can't beat the location. The lobster roll was great; the fried oyster roll a bit underdone. Good choice. Enjoy Bath and the Kennebec!

“Lovely in summer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a lovely setting in summer you can sit outside over looking the kennebec. The food is good not great. I have been here in the summer and the winter and the summer is much more lively. The waitstaff look as though they are having a good time. It is a nice place to relax and enjoy the sun.

“Great Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

We were in town for the first time for the commission of Zumwalt and walk in to town to find a place to eat. Decided on the Kennebec! So glad we did. We sat at the bar and order a drink and they made us feel like family! The conversations we great but so was the food. Please try the Scallops wrap in salmon.
I will go back!

“Fresh Seafood; Well-Prepared”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

I am a pick when it comes to crab cakes. These were very well prepared, moist, and well seasoned. I almost never like crab cakes with bell pepper, as crab meat is so easily overpowered by it. This is the first time I have had a crab cake where it complemented the flavor. Kudos to the Kennebec Tavern!

We also had a cup of the lobster stew. Very simple--lobster, cream, sherry, butter. What is not to like? Rich and delicious, with a generous helping of lobster meat.

Worth a visit if you are traveling through Bath or if you are staying there. Attentive staff. Helpful with recommendations.

It's a good place for well-prepared seafood. The service is good. I love the chocolate flourless torte.
