Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

By far, one if the best outdoor locations. We enjoyed great service, friendly wait staff. Food was pretty good, but not outstanding. They accommodated us on a fully reserved night at a table near the bar, so we could watch the World Cup game.

“A Very Nice Experience”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We arrived at 6PM on Friday with a toddler and without a reservation. They gave us a nice table by the bar. Overall the service was spot-on and the food was excellent. This was the best meal of our trip.

My wife ordered the boiled two-pound lobster, which was one of the best lobsters we've eaten. You would think a boiled lobster would be the same everywhere, but there was something about the preparation that made this one really tender and flavorful. I ordered the bouillabaisse, which was also good (although not over-the-falls good like the lobster). I ordered a delicious cranberry caipirinha, and our daughter enjoyed the bread.

I highly recommend this place.

“Beautiful Setting, Good Food”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Every table has a water view. It's a great place to have dinner and watch the sunset. The staff are very polished and accommodating. I had the brussel sprouts and roasted carrot ravioli. My husband had the redfish. We ordered a dessert to share and didn't care for it. When we mentioned we didn't like it, the waitress quickly removed it and brought us another option. We enjoyed after dinner drinks on the lawn in their adirondack chairs. Overall a very nice experience.

“A Quiet Haven on the River”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

It was a beautiful afternoon so we sat on the deck overlooking the Kennebunk River. A quiet respite from the madness of Dock Square. The maitre d and the waiter were friendly and accommodating Enjoyed a lovely glass of wine and a fish taco. I will definitely return.

“Not worth the expense”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

The view from the deck is beautiful and the bar is a classy place to have cocktails. Other than that the food is average at best. I wouldn't recommend.
