My wife and I recently went to Kennebunkport to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Our B&B recommended On the Marsh for dinner, and we are very happy they did! The food was fantastic. Its preparation and presentation was as good or better than anywhere else we have ever been. The setting was quaint and the service was great. All in all, we both agreed that this was the best restaurant we have ever experienced!

We've never left a review for a restaurant or hotel, but after our experience with On the Marsh, we needed to do it some justice. The decor/setting was very quaint and romantic. There is plenty of space and along the window areas, a great view of the marsh or the nice patio. The food was phenomenal, and we had the best deep sea scallops ever!!! We were beforehand (by our B&B hosts and other local guests) that if we go to On the Marsh, we should be prepared to break our piggy bank. But we enjoy fine dining, and our bill came to a total of $120 for two cocktails, a soup, an appetizer, and two entrees... we were extremely pleased and considered it to be a great value (not breaking the bank at all!). Our only regret is that we did not have room for dessert!

We recently dined at On the Marsh, August 19th 2007 we were celebrating a birthday and a anniversary.They sat us at the owners table which overlooks the marsh, the view was wonderful. Our waiter Patrick was very nice and the service was fantastic.The filet tenderloin was one of the best I have had, and the chocolate seduction was truly amazing with flavors.We will visit again, and give it two huge thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We recently had dinner at On the Marsh in Kennebunkport, Maine. It was fabulous. The service was above average. We were even seated at the owners table and had a server teach our children the proper way to fold a napkin. The food is the best in the area. This is my favorite restaurant in this area. We eat here every time we visit.
