The Restaurants of Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport, perhaps best known as the summer home of President and Barbara Bush, is a very quaint seaside village. While its international awareness stems from our Presidential neighbor, this village has been welcoming summer tourists for more than 150 years.

In addition to beautiful beaches, wonderful art galleries and original boutiques, Kennebunkport has some of the finest restaurants in New England. Some of our favorites are grouped below from elegant to casual:


~On the Marsh ~
Recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. A converted barn and farmhouse, On the Marsh resides peacefully on three and a half acres of splendid plantings and a tidal salt marsh. View two floors of Art, Antiques, Furnishings, all available for purchase. A wonderfully elegant restaurant with a very creative menu.

~Cape Arundel Inn~
Location, location, location...
Many restaurants with such spectacular views of the bold ocean may rely on those views to attract customers. Well, the Cape Arundel Inn is different. For one thing, other restaurants do not have the unbelievable views like those here at Cape Arundel and, for another thing, the food and the service are fantastic.

~Pier 77~
Located on Cape Porpoise, Pier 77 boasts a contemporary American fine dining menu. Ideally located right on Kennebunkport's working lobstering harbor, this elegant restaurant has a very warm and comfortable atmosphere and excellent food.


The philosophy of this restaurant...we believe that life can be lengthened and enriched by a diet free of pesticides and hormones, and through the consumption of animals not fed on a diet of cruelty. We take every opportunity to support this belief in serving organic, all natural and local Maine products whenever possible. Live long, laugh often, dance daily.
Well, philosophy aside, the food is excellent and its location in the heart of Dock Square is ideal. Their sauces are fantastic. They should offer a sampler variety.

Celebrating more than 30 years of casual excellence in Kennebunkport, Maine. Located in the heart of Kennebunkport's Dock Square, Alisson's Restaurant has become known to both locals and visitors as the place to experience casual excellence. If you are a nachos fan, don't pass them up.

~Federal Jack's~
This Kennebunkport landmark has a devotion to World Class Ales, inspired food, and the highest standards of guest service, all with one of the best views in Maine. Here you won't find the so-called big names in mass-produced food and beer. Instead, you'll discover a unique experience in the heart of Kennebunkport where the accent is on flavor and quality. Federal Jack's Restaurant & Brewpub is located on the grounds of a shipyard where numerous wooden boat builders
practiced their craft since the 1800's.

~Arundel Wharf~
Located on an historical landmark that once was a ships chandlery and general store where ships where repaired and fitted for voyages around the world. Arundel Wharf offers casual waterfront dining and cocktails on their wharf side deck or inside by their fireplace.

Very Casual

~Port Bistro~
Affordable Dining on Ocean Avenue. Eat In, Deck Dining, Meals to Go, Catering. Excellent spot in the middle of Dock Square to get a cup of soup and a sandwich. Buffalo chicken wrap is awesome.

~Cape Pier Chowder House~
Located at the very end of Cape Porpoise this is the ultimate in fresh seafood. I have never had anything that was less than excellent but, their deep-fried lobster keeps bringing me back time and time again.

Kennebunkport has many more wonderful restaurants but these are the favorites of the Maine Stay Inn.
