Description: Bennett's Store is an experience! Bennett's Store, established in 1982, became an institution within the Kennebunk Beach, Maine community because we possess the friendliest and welcoming staff, use the most high-quality and freshest produce and meats that are sliced on premise daily and serve our patrons made-to-order and customizable sandwiches on the softest rolls delivered each day! We specialize in large-portioned and terrific-tasting cheese steaks, italian subs, turkey sandwiches, and fresh lobster rolls. The philosophy of "Quality", "Service", "Value" and "Community" is fundamental to the Bennett's brand.

If you want a great sandwich at good value, go no further. There's consistency, freshness and good tasting sandwiches here. The tuna is just the way I like it - simple and no trace of additions that personally assume who likes celery or onions. The fajita sandwich is hearty with tender chicken and meatball sub divine. The store has lots of beverages to choose from including their own soda made for Bennett's. There are simple add on's like fries which were very crispy and cooked just right. Assorted chips and some limited traditional sweets like whoppie pies.

The service was fast and friendly at a reasonable price for the portion size which was rather large. We tried it at dinner time which differed from our usual lunch stop there. Food was just as fresh at dinner. You can eat in or outside or take food out to the beach or for a family outing. People grab sandwiches and go off or sit in the fairly large booths inside or on tables outside. It's old fashioned and not pretentious, but fresh and filling.

We pulled into this place because the parking lot was packed. We weren't disappointed in the lobster roll one bit. Chock full of only lobster. Yum. Before we left we returned for regular subs. Very good.

We stopped here for lobster rolls and were blown away by the really outstanding service. The food was excellent - generous portions of fresh lobster. And a very relaxed vibe. You can show up in your swimming costume.

Even at peak times at lunchtime there were plenty of tables.

But the service - wow! Beale's take note. This is how it should be done. The person who takes your order fulfills it. His or her name will be on your receipt. By the time you select your drinks and pay, your order is ready. Staff are friendly, fast, and so conscientious. They can deliver whatever variations you ask for.

Our only suggestion for improvement is - manage the changeover of cashiers more quickly.

Outside of the quality of the food at Bennett's, which is always freshly made and prepared, the best thing about the place is the kids who work the counter and prep areas.
It is just so refreshing to be greeted by smiling faces, have our orders prepared and delivered with a smile and then consulted half way through our lunch about the quality and our overall satisfaction. These kids like working here and you can tell; from the greeting, to the prep to the care they take in constructing your sandwiches, which by the way, are huge.
The prices are amazing as well. We fed 6 of us, 4 of them teenagers, for under $50.00. There is no place in the Kennebunks that is going to beat that.
We keep coming back and will continue to do so and advise others to do the same.
Oh....don't forget to drop a tip in the "College Tip Jar." These kids deserve it.

While in Kennebunkport, my friend and I stopped by Bennett's to grab lobster rolls. I asked the polite young man taking my order if it could be a lightened version. My roll was delish! As he said, the lobster roll was light on mayo and heavy on flavor. My friend said that her's was the best of the summer! The new owner gave us the restaurant's history and was warm and welcoming.
