To avoid the crowd, which involved people standing outside, we arrive quite early and were seated right away. The atmosphere was great and the service attentive. I had buffalo cauliflower as an appetizer, and the pecan crusted haddock with a side of latkes as an entrée. Both were very good and I'd be happy to have them again. My husband... More

Owner/chef Rich Lemoine, his wife Tina and their crew set forth the best in consistently excellent food and service. Daily, dinners only. You can't get a reservation, but the wait is always worth it. The patrons are patient, fun-loving and appreciative of the quality and care that goes into each meal. Highly recommended for locals and those looking for a... More

The Village Tavern consistently serves outstanding food. We've been there 6-7 times and have never been disappointed, has become our go-to place when we have company in town. I particularly enjoy ordering the Lobster Risotto every time - always outstanding and delicious. They have an excellent menu, many different choices from an Angus Burger to Duo of Petit Filet Mignon... More

There aren't a lot of tourists visiting the Kennebunks at the end of January but you wouldn't know it was a slow time if you dined at the Village Tavern this past Saturday night. We still had the usual 30+ minute wait - no reservations here - when we arrived at 6:30 pm. We have been here many times and... More

On a recent Sunday evening, we arrived early to enjoy cocktails at the bar. Our drinks were terrific! We were seated in the dining room about 30 min. later. We shared the Buffalo cauliflower app. It was delicious but a bit on the spicy side. I chose the Short Ribs for my meal while my friend had the evening special... More

Fantastic food and well worth the wait. We've only been once but were told there is almost always a wait as the dining area is a bit small. Everyone was very pleasant from the hostess who continually kept us posted on the wait to the server who gave excellent recommendations. Don't let the name fool you, the food is way... More

Never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere in the main dining area is okay (nice bar area, though) but it can be very loud if it's crowded, which it typically is, but the great food more than offsets this. Everything on the menu is excellent. You definitely be a repeat customer after your first visit!

We went early (5:00) as we heard the wait gets long later on. After being seated promptly, our waitperson was very helpful in taking drink orders and describing specials and menu favorites. Service was very good throughout the meal. We shared an appetizer of two large clam cakes which were the best I have ever tasted. My companion loved her... More
