Great food, interesting ingredients, nice atmosphere without being too noisy. Waitstaff are attentive. Menu changes daily. Good options for vegetarians as well as those who eat meat/fish.

Just returned from an incredible meal. From the melt in your mouth in house made bread, to the Fried Egg Caesar Salad, Haddock with Lemon Risotto and Local veggies, and topping it off with a Carrot Ricotta Cake, this meal was just exquisite. And Katia,...More

We visited Kennebunk/Kennebunkport two weeks before the season kicked in. Several of the local restaurants had yet to reopen. My wife searched around and suggested 50 Local. What a great recommendation. As with most of the area restaurants they offer fresh fish but they also...More

I really like local. The ambiance and drinks are lovely but the food is very overpriced and I wasn’t blown away. Some people love it and still go but I’ve eaten at much nicer restaurants with more imaginative dishes but they’re not close by.

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

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.
