We came upon it by chance on a cold winter day. Excellent seafood, atmosphere, great drinks and a lovely owner. Would recommend any day.

My friend and I first stopped at Bartley's when we noticed the free parking for restaurant clients. What a pleasant surprise! The owner was very friendly and welcoming. My friend had specific dietary needs, related to both diet and allergies.
Because they accommodated her dietary needs, suffice it to mention that the food was delicious, the cost was reasonable, and there were an abundance of choices on the menu, we frequented the restaurant almost daily.
My friend regularly ordered the grilled salmon and Greek salad, and I enjoyed the adventure of a different meal choice on the menu each evening.
The service was very personalized. Even the chef came out to meet the person ordering salmon each evening.
We may be going to a different part of Maine this summer, but we will make it our business to drive over to Bartley's for at least one evening meal for old times sake.

We've recently relocated to Maine full time from the UK due to my husband's new job but we have spent many happy holidays in the area. After a visit to the Rachel Carson reserve on Route 9, we decided to drive to Kennebunkport to see what was open for lunch. We were delighted that one of our favourite places, Bartley's, was not only open but could fit us in - it can get seriously full in the summer! We thoroughly enjoyed our meals: I had the haddock and my husband liked his Reuben sandwich so much he even took home what he couldn't finish, which is a first for him. Hot blueberry pie a la mode was the perfect finishing touch. Our server, Julie, was great fun as well as being prompt and attentive. It felt like being on holiday! Highly recommend.

We were heading home from a ski trip and had to make a stop for a Maine lobster roll. Delicious...we topped it off with a piece of homemade fresh from the oven blueberry pie al a mode.

Left pleasantly full and extremely satisfied. Thanks for treating us so well. We will be back!

Stopped by for a quick lunch.....When you enter a seafood restaurant and don't smell fish......that's a GOOD THING.......When you are looking for Fried Clams and you don't smell GREASE.....THAT'S A BETTER THING ! ......Cole Slaw was excellent but before you order it make sure Julie Made it....... Thanks for Great Lunch....
