“Perfect location on harbor, friendly service, and great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2010

My wife and I were in town for a wedding and luckily picked this place to eat. We sat on the deck over looking the harbor/inlet. We had to wait about 15 minutes for our table which was fine b/c we did not have reservation. They have a nice area on the deck to have drinks in adirondack chairs. We ordered the lazy lobster...they take the lobster out for you and give you just the meat. It was great not to have to work at the lobster and just enjoy the delicious lobster. It is only a $3 extra charge, well worth it. Our waitress, I think her name was Megan, was pleasant and efficient. The mosquitoes came around 8 pm I think, so we went to the inside bar and hand drinks with a nice bartender named Zac. A few of the off duty workers of the restuarants were hanging out in the inside bar and very welcoming. They were all very funny and nice people who gave us tips about staying in Kennebunkport. Great dining experience.

“Average place to get a decent meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2010

The place was packed, so it must be doing something right. The service was fine, but nothing great. We had a nice meal, at an okay price. The atmosphere inside is really dated and outside under the tent, is just that, under a tent. The food was tasty and hot, but nothing dazzling.

“Best Lobster Roll in Kennebunkport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2010

I haven't tried anything else at the Arundel Wharf, but the Lobster Roll was recommended by some locals, and they were correct. I tried many in the area, and this was the best. Very well cooked (still tender) and only a slight amount of mayo.

“Good traditional seafood, kind of expensive but beautiful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2010

Good, but a little expensive. The service was good. You are definitely paying for the location- very scenic, right on the wharf. I recommend getting there early to sit out on the deck. The fare is traditional seafood. We had the hot crab dip for appetizer, which was good. For my entree I got the sauteed scallops and they were delicious. My husband got the stuffed haddock and it was very good. The best thing about this restaurant is the location- right on the harbor.
