There's a distinctive advertisement for this restaurant in the centre of the elegant village of Kennebunkport. Laziness and lack of local knowledge drew us there. Don't bother. The furnishings are more suited to a downmarket cafe, the food (lazy lobster, in our case) is poor...More

We had a large group and the service was excellent. We never felt rushed. They were busy and offered us two seating areas, we had made reservations and our wait time was less than 15 minutes.

We got the lobster stew, the crab Rangoon dip and the mussels. The service was excellent and the food was very good.

Restaurant is situation on the waters edge. Enjoyed eating outside on the deck. We had a Cobb Salad and Lobster Stew. Both were delicious. With parking a problem in town having it's own parking is a plus. Staff was pleasant and professional.

It is only about 10 minutes from Kennebunkpot and a short drive into downtown Ogunquit, which was very charming and had a lot to see and do, much like Kennebunkport. Be sure to go to walk on Marginal Way in Perkins... More
