We spent one night in Kennebunk. We passed Maine lobster on our way in. After consulting TripAdvisor we gave it a try. We were not disappointed. I had the lobster roll and my husband had the lobster pie. Both were excellent. Highly recommend a visit!

Plenty of room and the waitresses were super nice. She was very attentive and on top of our beverage needs the entire meal. Food was great. Hot and cooked... More

My wife and I stumbled on this place last month for lunch. Great eats. Love the large menu. I got their big breakfast with eggs, pancakes, bacon, and corned beef hash. OMG. I was in heaven. My wife got the fish & chips and loved it. We shared the chowder sampler- lobster bisque, clam chowder, and seafood chowder all on... More

We were really excited to try this place and it lived up to the hype. Our server was Linda and she was excellent. She was very friendly and gave great recommendations. We ordered the salmon pie, the seafood chowder, shrimp roll and lobster mac and cheese. They were all excellent. The serving sizes are perfect. The seafood tasted fresh. The... More

Good breakfast but other meals are so so to sub par. Have eaten here many times and there is better food and value to be had in the area. We only go for breakfast which is reliably tasty but not exactly a great value. Blueberry pancakes are delicious. For what they charge, the genuine Maine Maple syrup should be included... More
