Great location right on the water. Service was excellent. We sat outside even though it was a chilly October afternoon. I had clam chowder and a fried clam roll. My husband who has NEVER liked clam chowder tried a bite of mine and ordered clam...More

Spent a late afternoon on the outside bar enjoying local residents who were friendly. The atmosphere is relaxing as you are on the shore of the Marina. My wife and I then went into the dining room for an outstanding seafood dinner. One of the...More

Just flew into Portland and drove over to Kennebunkport. Went to Arundel for traditional lobster roll. Very good. Sat outside and watched lobster boats maneuver in and out of river and marina. Awesome view. Great way to start vacation.

We stopped here for lunch. We on the wharf overlooking the ocean. We tried their soups, clam chowder and French onion, bth really good. My husband ordered the crab roll and I got the grilled Gouda, tomato, and avocado, both very filling.

Maybe we mis-ordered, but the Lobster Pasta was way too saucy and not enough Lobster. Sitting on the porch was nice.

Great view, but extremely slow service and mediocre food. Scallops served were rubbery and not what was advertised missing the spinach, bacon and shallots. Husband’s haddock was tasteless. Lobster bisque and clam chowder was good.

Great option for both a quick bite and a wonderful dinner experience. On a good summer day worth the wait to sit on the deck. Shoreman's Pie is true indulgence and the Crab Rangoon dip a decadent starter.

I never said anything about the owner or any piano player...I have no idea what "fullbelly" is talking about. Certainly, not my review.

Yes, its an old town with old buildings so you need to confirm my answer. But I used a chair there with no issues.

Bufflehead Cove Inn is the only place we like to stay. I am guessing this place is more in the mid range for price but it is worth every penny. The owners, the breakfasts, the rooms are all delightful.
