This place is next to the channel, I order lobster and they charge you per market price. No a cheap place but food is good, we sat outside overlooking the channel. Go there before six o'clock because it gets busy with locals. Hidden gem.

Recently we spent 3 nights in Maine, went to Arundel Wharf for 2 of the nights for dinner. Delicious lobster. Have been there over the years and count it as a destination. Not disappointed.

Went for dinner here and the service was excellent! I don’t eat lobster but my boyfriend said his was very good. I had the chicken and it was delicious.

Great location. Sit on the deck if you can. Reservations inside only but on a Sunday night by 6pm you should be fine. Corn bread is terrific as was the rest of the meal. Standard Maine fare at a reasonable price. Family friendly

Sit by the docks and enjoy traditional Maine fare at this casual relaxing spot. Had great seafood and pasta and our waitress was so personable and helpful in directing us to what to see and do in Kennebunkport.

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.
