We had a wonderful dinner in this charming restaurant. I ordered a Small Caesar salad and the Salmon as my main course. My husband had the same salad and the Duck entree. The dinner was delicious and our waitress was very courteous.

There are not a lot of fine dining options in Kennebunkport, so it's hard to judge On the Marsh too harshly, but it's musty smell and heavily salted entrees prevent it from being described as great.
