My husband just celebrated his 50th birthday and we decided to take a holiday and enjoy the autum leaves. We ended up in Kennebunkoort having a wonderful supper at On The Marsh Bistro. I have to say that the experience and the food was absolutely delightful! We've traveled the world and have eaten many fine meals. This is my first time writing about the experience and I felt motivated to do so because of the comfortable, elegant and relaxed atmosphere (not the mention the delicious food)! I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be returning... Thanks to general manager John Redlon and the staff for helping to make our experience a memorable one.

We were celebrating three birthdays on a trip to Kennebunkport. This restaurant seated us in a lovely room with great atmosphere and a perfect sign about friendship above our table. The greeter and wait staff were wonderful to us and made the evening very special for everyone. There is a piano and the atmosphere is romantic. Our food was very good as well. I highly recommend!

Seven woman celebrating a very special birthday for three of them, had the most delightful, fun and enjoyable evening at this beautiful restaurant. John had a perfect table for us. Scott was the sweetest waiter and very helpful with our ordering. The food was fantastic. They made this evening exactly what we had hoped, They gave us a very special treat at the end of the dinner and John played the piano for us. We stayed way past closing time but never did they make us feel we should leave. Great service, great food and a wonderful time had by all!

Attended a friends wedding, staff as so prompt, anticipated your needs before you even asked. Food was really great but I can't say enough about the staff, from waiters to bartenders, just so good that I had to write this.

Our enjoyable visit began with the stroll from the parking lot through the gardens overlooking the marsh.

We were welcomed and seated promptly and our waiter was very polite, knowledgeable of the food, and did his best to keep us pleased. At times, we felt it took him just a tad too long to return but he was serving a number of tables.

The food was mostly excellent. A muscle appetizer had an awesome sauce. An iceburg salad was routine but adequate. The venison steak was perfectly cooked and tender. A shrimp and lobster dish was a bit bland, but enjoyable. Fried kale, carrot casserole and other sides were excellent. A cheese course for desert was nicely accompanied by fresh figs and fruits. Service throughout was polite and complete.

We found the atmosphere formal but relaxed - very unpretentious. We'd go back again with little prodding. Dinner for two with two appetizers, two entrees, a shred cheese course, and a nice bottle of wine was $180 before tip.
