The grounds are stunning. Inside is nice too. Our table had a lovely view of the gardens and marsh. We did not wait at all. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The food was good. My husband had a delightful cupcake that came with farm fresh milk served in a jar with a red and white straw. So cute. The only thing we did not like was the "beet sorbet" which the waitress described as " adventurous". Good food. Pretty atmosphere. Good service. A very nice dining experience overall.

On the Marsh has superior dishes, from appetizers through dessert. Service is as exceptional as the setting. A lovely dining experience.

My sister, my friend from high school and I go to my place in Kennebunk for the annual Garden Tour which usually falls around my birthday. Most of the time we go to On the Marsh, we have been doing this for a couple of years. The food is heavenly, the service is amazing and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Every meal we have had there has been excellent as well as the desserts. One year the waiter saw that there were presents for me and came over with a small dessert with a candle in it and sang Happy Birthday to me without being asked. This year when the waiter saw the cards and gifts he came over with a glass of champagne. It is like being with family. I would highly recommend On the Marsh.

Top drawer service, personable and knowledgeable staff. Food was excellent but portions were small. Deserts are great and more generous then the entrees. Interesting decor with comfortable seating.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at On the Marsh. Our Inn had recommended it to us and we were not disappointed. We were seated at the "owner's table" and it was very nice and had incredibly comfortable chairs. Our waitress was very helpful and we all enjoyed our meal. They even have a vegetarian option. The seafood was wonderful and we had room for dessert and after dinner drinks. They do weddings in the back garden. Very beautiful setting for a special event! Definitely will go back!
