We just stopped for a 5pm snack and glass of wine, but both were quite good and very reasonably priced.

Hurricane in the center of Kennebunkport may seem like a tourist trap but it is actually good food at reasonable prices. Ambiance is pleasant with a view of the inlet and service is good. We had oysters which were served from three different regions so it is a nice sampler of East Coast oysters. We weren't really hungry so ordered tagliatelle with meat sauce and it was a meal rather than an appetizer (as advertised)! Friendly wait staff, separate bar area and parking in back (for a fee in summer). Convenient location.

We had dinner overlooking the water at sunset and enjoyed great wine, great food, and great service. The wine list is reasonable with good options. The seafood stew was awesome! Very nice atmosphere. Eat here!

I believe the Hurricane is now getting by on it's name and past reputation. I read good reviews on TripAdvisor about the Hurricane and we decided to check it out for lunch upon our arrival in the Village. What a disappointment! They call that a lobster roll? If there was 1/4 cup of lobster in that roll I would be surprised, never mind the fact that it was all knuckle meat! The lobster cobb salad - another huge disappointment - I could barely find the lobster in that salad, and again, all knuckle meat. A huge disappointment, we'll never go back! The wait staff was very good, but that is all I can say that was good at the Hurricane. Almost forgot, the prices were outrageous considering what you got in return.

First off, I know that food at this restaurant is excellent. For that reason, my sister made a reservation for a party of 9 one month in advance. When we arrived for our reservation, we were told that the table that would accomodate us had not even received their entrees. They said that they had called us, but my sister received no call. The restaurant was so backed up that there was no room at all in the cocktail lounge. My brother had to wait over 40 minutes for his reservations. If you are going to charge substantial prices for meals like Hurricane does, you owe it to your patrons to manage reservations compentently.
