“Inconsistent Food Quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

I visit One Dock for small plates and the excellent bartenders. My experiences have varied with inconsistecy in the quality and size of portions. Recently I ordered a arrugula salad and it was tiny, tiny--I was not sure whether they were running out of arrugula. I made the mistake of going for public supper this Sunday. I have never had Chicken Marsala with the skin on the chicken--did not prevent the chicken from drying out. Great place to go for drinks, but not sure about the food.

Dear KB- Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I was disappointed to hear about your recent visit and have discussed both the salad and the chicken with the chef. I do hope that if you have experienced any other inconsistencies while dining with us at one Dock you have shared that with the service staff that evening as we always welcome the opportunity to correct the situation and have our guests leave happy. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to your next visit.

“A wonderful experience sure to be revisited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend in Kennebunkport and dined at the wonderful One Dock Square. We were there for the first of their Sunday Suppers. The Supper featured a desert and your choice of several entrees. The meal was delicious and the service was wonderful. We were well taken care by an attentive and knowledgeable server who was warm and provided great recommendations. The manager on site was wonderful as well.

Overall, we had an exceptional experience at One Dock and would recommend them to anyone. The people and food are both fantastic.

Thank you Not- Bil-Rusel for your review. Sunday Suppers have been a big hit and always offer that comfort food everyone likes every now and then as well as our regular dinner menu. I will share your comments with the staff as well. It's always nice to hear. We look forward to seeing you soon.

“Excellent Meal and Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We walked from our hotel to One Dock to have a drink before dinner. It turns out that on Wednesday evenings the hotel supports a local cause which, this week, was the Wells Reserve at Laudholm. So, in addition to good food and drinks, we met folks, learned about a good place to go for a walk the next morning (had to work off those calories!). We enjoyed several oysters each along with (his) beer and (my) prosecco during happy hour, then were seated next to an inviting fire for dinner. The food was excellent and our server (wish I could remember his name) was attentive and knowledgeable. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

JosJon thank you for joining us on Wednesday evening. The team from Laudholm certainly did a good job with their literature and fabulous paintings they brought in for the evening. We continue to have the Worthy Wednesday program in place until the end of April so we hope you can join us again. I believe your server may have been Gordy and he does a wonderful job. We hope to see you again soon.

“Amazing rehearsal dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

The food at One Dock is amazing, and varies from small plates (which can be eaten as a meal, especially the lobster mac & cheese!) to amazing entrees. The wine list had a lot of great options, and the server we had was very knowledgeable and friendly. However, I wish she had some help, we were a large party including two infants, and she had her hands full! We were in a separate room for dinner, which was very tastefully decorated, and quiet enough for our conversation. However, the bar is also a great place to eat, and a little more lively.

Hello Colleeniem- We are so glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. The Lobster Mac & Cheese is one of the most popular items we have on the menu. Thank you for the compliments on your service and I am not sure why there was not an additional server to assist with your party as our goal is to always provide the best service we can. We look forward to your next visit to One Dock.

Thank you Gooserocks1. We are glad you enjoyed your evening. The margaritas are fabulous as well as the "El Diablo" which is one of our signature cocktails with Tequila as well. Might I suggest that upon your next visit. We are very lucky to have our staff in the dining room and Laurie is always wonderful. Agsain, thank you for taking the time to write this review.
