I love the staff here, they are just beyond the best of the best, honestly the food isn't stellar (except the tuna sashimi and mussels), but I love the atmosphere and I really love the staff, which is why I go at least once a week. The views of the harbor in Kennebunkport are bar none and they have a... More

Being Easter Sunday, I called to make sure they were open - yes with regular house... That was good news after a 4+ hour drive from VT. We had the Portside IPA - a nice IPA, a bit heavy on the grapefruit finish, but a good, drinkable IPA. Had the calamari for an appetizer and it was delicious. Very light... More

We loved the cheddar sticks. The burgers were good as well, along with the variety of local brewed beers

We went for a quick bite while visiting art galleries in Kennebunk. Pretty standard food for a pub type atmosphere. I ordered the gyro which, in retrospect I probably shouldn't have. It wasn't authentic at all nor even close to it. I should have known better. The other food on menu is probably decent. My wife had the fish tacos(2)... More

Just had lunch there this past weekend, and the food was really excellent. The service, however, was lacking. We sat in the bar area, and we only saw two servers for the entire bar (easily a dozen tables). As a result, our server paid little attention to us, which made it hard to get another drink, ask for extra napkins,... More

We were staying at the inn up the street when we wanted to go out for a casual dinner within walking distance. The restaurant was cute but generic "brew pub". My husband and I ordered calamari for an appetizer and it was ok nothing to write home about ($11.00)and we both "Skewered Tips* the description on the menu was "Crumbled... More

$21.00 for a lobster roll are you kidding me?! I know lobster is expensive but didn't look like more then 6 ounces of lobster in flavorless mayonaise on a 4 inch hot dog bun. Would have been nice to have a heads up on the price. The bartender was nice though, he should have warned us, oh well. Lesson learned.

Casual place to dine or get a beer and appetizer! In the heart of downtown and many stop for lunch to relax and socialize! Take it in and enjoy!
