Bartley's is no longer in existence. The building was torn. down and replaced. The location , right next to Dock Square, Kennebunkport , was great. Nothing else was very good.

After many years of issues on many levels. This dining place is no longer opening. It appears that a nationwide food chain has purchased the site. And is in the process of tearing down the orginal building and replacing it.

We only go there for drinks. The owners are kind of odd. They are very particular about their parking so don't park there and go to the clam shack. If you hit the place at the right time, you hit upon a fun evening crowd.

We ate here for our first meal in the area. The food is great, especially the lobster bisque, with chunks of tail meat in it. Thanks to the manager(owner?)who gave me a free piece of blueberry pie with my take out order.

This was a great deal - 2 lobsters for the price of one (plus 2 side orders) but we should have tried the lobster roll - just because it's too much work cracking shells. It was a beautiful day, so we ate outside. The service...More

Pluses: Very friendly staff. A lot of lobster in the lobster rolls. Homey feel. Minuses: $100 (with tip) for 2 lobster rolls (one with chowder), a small bowl of lobster stew, two soft drinks and one glass of wine? The bowl of chowder was laughable,...More

One of the worst meals we ever had. The clam roll was overdone and the roll burned. The fries were limp and soggy. They both tasted like they had been cooked in rancid oil. We were unable to finish the meal.
