The three course wine pairing special was delightful. Swordfish was perfectly cooked and the wine selections were paired to each course. The Chocolate flourless tort with Chambord cream was a perfect way to complete our dining experience. Special thanks to Pam who took care of our few requests. Our all girl trio, Mom, Daughter and Daughter-in-law will definitely make this an annual treat! Mom gives extra kudos to Pam who was attentive and just plain nice. Thanks Pam.

Thank Kathy R

Hi Kathy:
I have to agree - Those wine dinners are simply amazing! Each week when the menu crosses my desk I am so impressed with the ability of our Executive Chef Steve True to put together a spectacular menu and equally impressed with Bar Manager Mark Wozny's talent for pairing the wine with the special meal!
Your observations about Pam are spot on. She is just plain nice! Always a smile and a kind word! I am certain she took very good care of your all girl group!
Fall is a beautiful time of year in Kennebunkport and the wine dinners continue. Perhaps you can sneak away for another vist before we close for the season in December. We would love to see you!
All The Best,
Jean Ginn Marvin

One of the best we've ever had, especially among those included with room rate. Who else has scalloped potatoes instead of ordinary home fries? Trolley driver said open to the public, but doesn't seem advertised that way.

Hello New York Friend!
I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Every day it seems someone comes up to the Front Desk and raves about it! If I were on vacation it is the kind of breakfast I would love to have! Our baked goods are totally amazing. One of the guests told me the other day we have s'more muffins. Wow! Sounds good to me! The menu changes each day but in general we have eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, granola, yogurt, toast, pancakes, cereal and other yummy baked goods. Something for everyone!
I hope you will come back and see us and when you do please come to the desk and ask for me. I am a proud Syracuse University graduate!
Warm Regards,
Jean Ginn Marvin

We haven’t stopped raving about the amazing chowder. Brother and nephews are chefs and graduates of CIA. It was amazing especially the chowder and all fresh fish. Fresh, fresh, fresh. It was the best meal we had on our entire vacations. Wonderful service. We would drive back to Kennebunkport just to eat the chowder.

Hi Lauren:
Thank so much for the lovely review! Chef Steve True and his staff do make a mean chowder don't they? I have hard time staying out of the kitchen to sneak a bowl! You are correct - fresh is the key to making wonderful food!
I know it is a long trip to drive back to Kennebunkport for the chowder but there are lots of special new items being added to our fall menu. You may want to consider coming back soon!
Thanks again,
Jean Ginn Marvin

The views are good from all tables at 95 Ocean. Very pretty sunset. Wait staff were attentive and present at appropriate times (shout out to Samantha!). The food was exceptional. We tried the BBQ duck flatbread pizza (blueberry maple chipotle sauce with duck confit, goat cheese, and scallions) as an appetizer, it was heaven, just the right amount of spicy and sweet... For entrees, we had the Blueberry Chipotle Ribs (you have to get something made with fresh blueberries in the summertime when you're in Maine!) as well as the lobster lasagna. Both delicious choices (although we definitely needed extra napkins for the ribs!) -- we'll be back... :-)

Greetings Maryland Guest!
How gracious of you to write such a fantastic review! We really appreciate it!
Samantha is such an awesome girl! It is her first year on waitstaff (last year she was a busser) and she is doing a phenomenal job! Our guests love her!
The Blueberry Ribs are a Nonantum Favorite - in fact my 1 year old grandson cannot get enough of them. The Duck Pizza is also over-the-top. So many great choices. So little time!
We will look forward to your return trip!
Appreciatively,
Jean Ginn Marvin
