I'm a bit conflicted about this restaurant- it didn't quite make it to "above average" rating. The interior is darkish which, I guess, is their vibe. That was ok with us. The staff was pleasant. The menu is limited though and choices seemed a bit...More

What a gem. Right in downtown Kennebunk which is adorable this restaurant was a great find. It has a varied menu to appeal to most palates, creative dishes and frankly reasonable for the quality of the food. Also nice ambiance and very friendly staff.

We often dine at 50 Local and send many of our Inn at English Meadows guests there, as well. And, because 50 Local is open year round we will continue to do so this winter.

The restaurant was packed so we were expecting great food. The portions were small and prices were a little high. Crab cakes looked like a hushpuppy. Hamburger and salads were just okay. Gnocchi was good. Nice selection of beer. Service was good. Parking was easy.

Not a large menu but the food was delicious. The bread was to die for, the best we have ever eaten. The lobster dish I ordered was so good. My husband's chicken and mashed potatoes was just what he needed since he was craving a...More
