Went here on a quiet Monday night. Was very relaxing and sat at a table with a view of the water and boats. Had baked halibut which was very good. Staff was very pleasant and attentive. Nice place to eat in Kennebunkport.

Very good experience. Even though it was a cold rainy day the whole experience inside the restaurant was great with a small welcoming fire.

This is a great place to enjoy an afternoon drink. Right on the water with an outdoor bar and seating. Get there early it gets crowded. Lots of fun.

This restaurant has been a family favorite for many years, parking is usually available and the food consistently good, The choice of foods and where to sit-- on the deck, under a tent and inside offers us choices depending on the weather.

I never said anything about the owner or any piano player...I have no idea what "fullbelly" is talking about. Certainly, not my review.

Yes, its an old town with old buildings so you need to confirm my answer. But I used a chair there with no issues.

Bufflehead Cove Inn is the only place we like to stay. I am guessing this place is more in the mid range for price but it is worth every penny. The owners, the breakfasts, the rooms are all delightful.
