We enjoy dining out regularly, and also enjoy a lot of seafood. One week ago, my family and I had an outstanding and memorable dinner at Stripers. Highlights of the experience were: a truly beautiful setting, impeccable and attentive service, and best of all, phenomenal food. We all enjoyed seafood - in particular the swordfish, which literally melted in my mouth! The attentive service was above and beyond most restaurants we have frequented, obviously influenced by the extraordinary level of professionalism exhibited by the restaurant manager. The staff is clearly held to very high standards, which as customers we thoroughly appreciated. On another evening we enjoyed excellent wine and wonderful fresh oysters in the bar while listening to a live pianist. Though you can do these things in other places, the amazing setting and the above and beyond service at Stripers are what truly make it stand out!

Although there are many many outstanding restaurants in Kennebunkport, Stripers is the only one that offers: an amazing view of the water, an interesting menu focused on fish and seafood (with some alternatives too), decor which is hip and upscale (yet not too formal), top notch service, and a great wine list. Highly, highly recommend!

We stayed at the Yachtman's lodge. Nice rooms, awesome view and walked down to Striper's for dinner. We had the most romantic dinner. The service was excellent and the meal was so amazing! Thanks to the staff and owners!

In search for our annual vacation I came upon Kennebunkports page and remembered our wonderful stay at The Breakwater Inn and Spa last autumn. The onsite restaurant is called Stripers, where we had the best didning experience in town. The menu was very healthy, fun and just different. I loved the lamb carpaccio, the cod with the ravioli and the fruity bread pudding for dessert. If I could only convince my husband to come back to Maine, we would definitely stay in the same spot and eat every night at Stripers.
Thanks, Rita from Atlanta

In August my wife and I traveled to Maine for the weekend in hopes of a tranquill getaway. During our travel to Kennebunkport we stumbled upon a fine eating establishment with breath taking views, Stripers. We were having some difficulty choosing a wine to accompany our main course selections. When we we were greeted by a cheerful and experienced waiter named Tim. He assisted with his great knowledge of fine wines. He was very generous and attentive with his wine serving! We will most certainly be back and be requesting experienced Tim!
