Where to Eat in Kennebunkport

Our culinary scene is sensational, offering something for even the most discerning palate. Fresh, local seafood (of course) is abundant as is local craft beer, farm-to-table cuisine and more! Cheers!

The Tides
Beach Club


Located across the street from Goose Rocks Beach, The Tides Beach Club is a historic property with a festive vibe and the best cocktails in Kennebunkport. We recommend their outdoor tables with gorgeous views, but if you can get a seat at their lively bar, you’ll enjoy a classic Maine beach dining experience.

Batson River Tasting Room

Batson River Tasting Room Goat Island Cocktail

Just over the bridge from Dock Square, Batson River Tasting Room offers seasonal signature cocktails and their current lineup of craft beers along with a tempting selection of apps and light bites that are perfect for snacking and sharing. Enjoy on the outdoor decks or patio in summer.

Earth at
Hidden Pond

entree from earth at hidden pond

Tucked within luxury resort, Hidden Pond, Earth offers an unforgettable culinary experience. Fresh, local ingredients are composed to create exceptional farm-to-table fare, in a beautiful setting. Reservations two weeks prior to your visit are recommended.


nachos and margarita

Delish “American Mexican” with authentic flavors, fresh ingredients, great cocktails and a tequila line-up that is not to be missed! Pedro’s is family-friendly and has great outdoor dining space.

The Ramp

outdoor seating at The Ramp

As quirky as it is tasty, the fun begins when you park your car in the lot overlooking Goat Island Lighthouse. Inside, The Ramp is a memorabilia menagerie with vintage posters, banners, political signs, and sports gear hanging from almost every surface. Best of all, they have one of the best lobster rolls in Kennebunkport.

The Lost Fire


You can get a steak in most Kennebunkport restaurants, but no one does beef like The Lost Fire. This unapologetically carnivorous establishment roasts every entree to perfection over an open flame with a generous helping of exceptional service. Children are welcome, but in our opinion, The Lost Fire is best for date night.

Cape Pier
Chowder House

Cape Pier Chowder House fried seafood platter

Located on a working pier, overlooking a boat-filled harbor and iconic Goat Island Light, Cape Pier Chowder House serves up fresh fried seafood, lobster rolls, steamed lobster dinner and of course, fresh chowder!

Lobster Hut

It doesn’t get more authentic New England than this. Just a few minutes away in Cape Porpoise, Nunan’s serves up the quintessential lobster dinner. Summer time is their busy time, so go early and bring cash as it’s their only accepted form of payment!

Old Vines
Wine Bar

Old Vines Wine Bar cocktail

Craft cocktails, inspired wine list, creative cuisine and great staff make Old Vines a must do during your visit to The Kennebunks. Best for couples or kid-free parties.
