Plan to visit 50 Local--great restaurant, and service. The food is all local to Kennebunk/Maine and is creative, and well presented, and delicious. The physical restaurant is very comfortable. ENJOY...

“Little gem in Kennebunk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

50 Local has a nice, comfortable vibe and is quite a little gem in downtown Kennebunk. The food is wonderful (I got the sirloin which was cooked perfectly and the beet salad which was excellent). Good wine & cocktail list. I'd go back again.

“New Years Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

My husband, a friend, and I dined here on New Years Eve. It was our first time at 50 Local and it was outstanding!! We had reservations and we were promptly seated. The server was attentive and our apps and entrees arrived timely and hot. This is a $$$+ restaurant - which we do not mind paying for excellent food and atmosphere. We found it at 50 Local!

“Second honeymoon, second chance.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I made this our first meal last year, November 2011, as newlyweds. The food was good yet the service was average. We gave this a second chance on our "second honeymoon."
Upon our return we found the food even better and the service much improved. We had one of our best dining experiences as a couple.
On our first trip, we had good food and, I being a chef, thought there was room for improvement only as the chef just needed to hit full stride in the kitchen. He has done so, and come to find out with an after dinner chat, was opening a pizza joint across the street that night. Congrats and well deserved!!
Service last year seemed a new team, working out kinks of teamwork or something and was slow. This time around every base was covered and the two on this evening were magnificent. If one was busy, other was at the table with exactly what needed, not allowing food to sit to long if ready, filling drinks, checking in.
Will be back on our future trips to area, only wishing that we were a bit more local to experience more often!! Cheers to you all.
