We discovered this a few years ago and fell in love. We usually go on our first night in tow and enjoy wine and tapas. The atavistic is friendly and know a lot about wine so they can point you in the right direction. The food is delicious. Have met the owners a few times and they are nice. Great... More

Excellent food, very noisy but pleasant ambiance. Unfortunately, you are so rushed that you can't enjoy it. The restaurant is small and the objective is obviously to achieve the highest turnover in the business. Mission accomplished.

Beautiful ambiance year round, with excellent signature cocktails, craft beers, and great food! Located just down the road from Dock Square in Kennebunkport, it's easily traveled by foot with parking in various lots and on-street.

Found this place on a whim and it is amazing! Happy hour specials on wine and draft beer and the small plates were out of this world! Walking up to the building with the hot fire was just what we needed on the cold night! The inside atmosphere is relaxing and great for friends, couples or we even saw a... More

I want to say it is terrible so that it won't get too crowded but i think the word is out already. I love all the small plates and wine is very good. Everytime I go even if it is when it first opens it is packed.

We love the food here. They do small plates and pizza and everything is delicious! We typically order chicken meatballs, caeser salad and a pizza to share and have never been disappointed. It's a wine bar but the bartenders are great and their mixed drinks are amazing. All of the staff is amazing we really enjoy talking with Sam and... More

We've been here for dinner and a light snack.. the food is delicious and the staff is fun and they know a lot about wine. They don't try to sell you the most expensive bottle, they guide you to what you like.

We came to Old Vines on a Friday night. If you arrive before 6:00, there are half price snacks and drink specials. We tried five of the snacks and small plates and had several glasses of wine. Eveything was delicious. The building is an old barn and it is lovely. The atmospehere was lively but relaxing. When we left at... More
