a little out of the way kind of place, great patio and good service. Live music and easy parking. A quiet out of the rush of things if you want to drive up Rte.1 a bit.....

We stopped in to Torches at around 8:30pm on a Saturday night. We were promptly seated in the dining room. We were a party of four adults and three children. The waitress was pleasant and cheerful. The menu was extensive and offered many specials. We ordered a round of drinks, and several appetizers. Our drinks came after a lengthy wait. Our appetizers arrived 45 minutes after we ordered them. As they were being placed on the table, we immediately noticed the poor presentation, and even worse, the preparation of each item was awful. The flat bread pizza is not on flat bread, the cheese used appears to have been an orange hued cheddar blend...not something for use on pizza of any sort. The crust was thick, the tomato sauce was chunky and there was way too much of it. The cheese as stated was just wrong. The chicken fingers were over cooked and dry. The dipping sauce was a watery citrus flavored mess. The onion rings were poorly battered and saturated in grease. The mini sliders were over cooked and arrived 10 minutes after the rest of the appetizers. The waitress was apologetic and cited "problems in the kitchen". I would suggest that when you see the sign for Torches...keep driving, there are dozens of better places to eat...including McDonalds and Subway. Seriously, avoid this place at all costs, eat here at your peril.

Have visited this place many time, first when it was in Wells, and now at its present location in kennebunk. The food is great, the atmosphere is FUN. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For good food and fun visit torches.

The atmosphere is fun, and the food is good, but I guess I was just disappointed with the very small portion. When fish and chips is the Friday night special one expects a big portion and not a smaller then lunch size serving. My dinner partner also thought portion was small.
