Here for dinner. Not impressive with menu or food. Pricey. Hostess wasn't real welcoming, although our server was sweet. People had told us it was a really nice place to sit, but my friend and I were not impressed.

Ed, the Arundel Wharf has the same owner from day one. They also have never had a piano player. This I know for sure. Sounds like a different restaurant. Please stop in at 43 Ocean Ave Kennebunkport to enjoy a casual waterfront experience.

I never said anything about the owner or any piano player...I have no idea what "fullbelly" is talking about. Certainly, not my review.
Do you take reservations? Are you wheelchair friendly?

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

Hi we are thinking of a visit to the Kennebunkport area and wondered how far your resort motel/Inn is from there? We want a nice but inexpensive place to stay for 2-3 nights. Thanks and your reviews sound delightful.

It is only about 10 minutes from Kennebunkpot and a short drive into downtown Ogunquit, which was very charming and had a lot to see and do, much like Kennebunkport. Be sure to go to walk on Marginal Way in Perkins... More
