Had a wonderful evening with excellent food and a beautiful ocean view. Although we were a little disappointed that we could not drink a special bottle of wine we brought (house rules), the dinner was memorable and the waitress was especially enthusiastic. Would go again and again.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Stripers two years ago for our son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner. My husband and I were curious to see if our wonderful experience and memory of Stripers was accurate or just a reflection of a happy time. We were in Kennebunkport last weekend and took our "kids" back for dinner. It was every bit... More

View out to the ocean from our riverfront room was beautiful. We had a room with a deck but as other reviewers have noted the inn has no elevator, so if that's a necessity book a spa room in the other building. The resort was full but it was quiet all the time. We will be going back to check... More

Best location in the port, seafood and lobster specialties are the best. Service is genuine and friendly, we ate here 3 times during our last visit to Kennebunkport. Be sure to go before sunset and have a glass of wine on the front lawn overlooking the water, it's a postcard view!

The staff was young, attentive and enthusiastic. And their desserts were delicious The restaurant is about a 1 mile walk from Western Avenue and Ocean Avenue along a pleasant... More

It started with our drinks which took approx. 10 min. Then into the food which was just bad. It was bland and just thrown onto a plate. It was also expensive. You can do much better in Kennebunkport.

We came to Stripers on our first night in Kennebunkport and the food and service was great! I had a delicious grapefruit martini and my boyfriend had a frozen mango margarita! Our server was so friendly and not pushy even though we arrived a little later in the evening! She split our meal up into three courses and the food... More

Stripers features local seafood on the water with a sunset view of the river and ocean, private beach, and a waterside bar. Have a drink and an appetizer in one of our adirondack chairs on our lawn, or come inside for a great meal, with plenty of options for those who would prefer an alternative to seafood.
