I had a delicious cocktail (Happy on the Hey Now) & an equally delicious lobster roll! (The fries were great as well) The price was also reasonable for both the drink & lobster roll.

This is a must stop in Kennebunkport. The food is always great, and the wait staff is really friendly! I always look forward to eating there when I visit.

We went here one evening and had the lobster roll. Stuffed with lobster and delicious! We throughly enjoyed our dinner. The service was good and the people friendly. Very casual atmosphere.

Had the lobster bisque poutine and it was great, service was top notch, location was central to everything on the main drag, right behind it is a large paid parking lot with public restrooms. Can’t think of a thing I would change.

We're big fans of fish and chips and had some amazing ones last year in Nova Scotia. As this place came highly recommended and is by the harbour, we thought the fish would be great. Unfortunately, we received fish nuggets rather than the usual big...piece of fish and the fish was tasteless. The fries were good though. Disappointing experience.More

Spent 5 nights in the area. Ate here 3 times because it’s that yummy. The lobster bisque is beyond yummy. Service was always on the spot. I’d also recommend the Alagash White beer and the risotto.

We ate there twice. Food was good and lively atmosphere. Seemed to be one of the busier places. We like to eat late and Kennebunkport closes early. Allison’s still had plenty of people at 9pm.

Wife and I arrived around 5:00 and didn’t have to wait. Place is nice on the inside. Very clean. Menu is broad. I ordered fish & Chips (haddock) and wife ordered the lobster roll trio. We both had water. As a starter my wife had...lobster bisque and I had salad. Her bisque was great. My salad was fine. Entrees came pretty soon after. Wife really enjoyed her dinner. It was plenty big with plenty of lobster. Mine was good. Fish was light and fries were good. Tartar sauce had no taste, which was odd. The reason for the 3 was service. Our server checked on us about a minute after bringing our entrees and never came back. We sat without water forever and then just gave up. Finally, she returned and we requested water and the check. I rarely ever tip less than 15% even for poor service, but this was different. We could see our server chatting it up with her co-workers but never checking on us. Very aggravating. I left 10% and we left.More

Friendly, family oriented, great staff. Clam chowder was excellent but cold. My lobster roll was not memorable, but my husband is still talking about his fried cod hot sauce sandwich!!!! We'll come back. Oh and they sell their wonderful soup cups for 10$

The mini-Lobster Roll and cup of Chowder is a must order. It is the best chowder that I have had. Service was great.

Watch sports from the many TVs. The waiter suggested a local beer that was great! the food was good. Only drawback, was we ordered the poutine and the gravy used tasted like it was from a can. Other than that the other food items were...good.More

Great location close to shopping. Love the menu item that gives you a small lobster roll and a cup of lobster bisque or clam chowder. Friendly wait staff and host.

Went in 4:30 pm'ish and had a fun time . Sat at the bar, enjoying the ambience with the bar staff and a few locals. A very relaxed atmosphere made for a good night after some driving to get there. You'll enjoy it.

Had a great dinner here during our stay in Kennebunkport. Had great service and the food was very good. My husband had a chicken sandwich that he said was very good and I had the mussels which were wonderful! Would return without hesitation.

No problem for 7 people. Try the seared scallops and large shrimp on risotto. Excellent.
