Dining in Kennebunkport is like the proverbial box of chocolates, only you can pick exactly what you want. Being right on the Maine coast obviously means a bounty of fresh seafood is served at Kennebunkport restaurants. Lobster is on most every menu, from fresh steamed lobster and famous lobster rolls at Mabel’s Lobster Claw (where former presidents dine), to chef prepared lobster creations.
Kennebunkport dining can be casual like fried clams from the Clam Shack or Alisson’s for a juicy burger. For lunch and dinner, waterfront restaurants offers window seats or outdoor decks, so you can enjoy clam chowder, lobster bisque or your favorite seafood (or a landlubber’s perfectly cooked steak) as you watch sailboats and fishermen pass by up and down the Kennebunk River.
Dinner and dancing is offered at Nonantum Resort, enjoy delicious food and a spin on the dance floor to a live band. Or keep it casual with a cookout and traditional Maine Lobster outside by the pool at Rhumb Line Resort’s Admiral’s Table.
Lower Village and Dock Square feature several seafood restaurants, Ports of Italy – an Italian bistro, Bandaloop – an organic restaurant serving fresh local fare, Asian and Thai places, Pedros for Mexican, Old Vines Wine Bar, and of course fresh pizza parlors. For that morning java, Mornings in Paris or Dock Square Coffee House for café and bakery fresh pastries, Maine blueberry muffins, and gourmet coffee.
If you wish to pack a picnic for the beach, gourmet shops will cater lobster rolls, artisanal cheeses and all the accoutrements for you to take out – HB Provisions, Salud Bistro and Market Day. Your sweet tooth will be satisfied with a stop at one of Dock’s Square’s ice cream parlors like Rococco’s or Aunt Marie’s, and The Candy Man candy shop.
Kennebunkport has become a destination for “foodies,” with award winning restaurants featuring Wine Spectator wine lists, and annual culinary festivals including The Kennebunkport Festival and February is for Lovers.
Dining in Kennebunkport will not disappoint, except that you may not have enough time to try all the tasty treats.
