I went for lunch on a Friday in May. The beer was excellent. My fish sandwich was also good. The service and atmosphere was also great and relaxed. I definitely recommend you go here while in Kennebunkport.

We had dinner here the other night. It was very crowded. The food was good and we had a fun time. The service was a little slow; I don't think they planned on such a busy nite.
