We ate at the Hurricane on our last evening visiting Kennebunkport. The ambience was more upscale than the other restaurants we had visited with white tablecloths and candles but not too fancy to take our elementary school kids. It has a great water view at...More

Kennebunk beach has been a summer draw for over 100 years, and it feels as though the Hurricane has always been a part of Dock Square in the Port. Of late, there has been a groundswell of new hotels and restaurants in the area, yet...More

It was pretty busy when we went there because of the Christmas Prelude but we found seats by the window for a quick bite to eat. Service was great and fast. Best grilled chicken Caesar salad I have ever had!

Not sure. Every time my wife and I have gone it was for dinner and we did not see too many children. Young adults and teenagers yes, but not small children.

Dinner menu continuously changes. Market rate applies to some items. Best to check web site. Also, I would suggest an early dinner. The lunch menu is served until 3:30, and the portions are dinner sized and a great deal.
