Today, as I was discussing Kennebunkport restaurants with a new employee, I realized that it might be helpful to share some of the insights. Fortunately for us, and for all visitors to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, this community is filled with great places to dine, and not all of them call for snazzy outfits or result in astronomical bills. And even in April, before 100% of restaurants have opened their doors, there are lots of places for a good casual meal.
Quite a few are just a short walk from the Maine Stay, meaning on warm nights light tonight, you’ll be just as content meandering out to dinner as hopping in the car for a meal. In Dock Square you’ll find Federal Jack’s, a brewpub, which is also home to Kennebunkport Brewing Company. Best known as the largest craft brewery in the state, you’ll enjoy beers tapped directly from the
holding tanks to the bar – you can’t get much fresher than that! But their food is excellent as well, with a large menu sure to please anyone in the family. And with a large gluten-free menu, even food allergy sufferers will find something satisfying. Diagonally across the street, you’ll find Ryan’s Corner House, an authentic Irish pub serving up traditional fare like bangers and mash, corned beef and cabbage, and shepherd’s pie. Though you will find seafood on the menu, it’s great for visitors of our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast who are ready for a break from lobster and clam chowder. Still walking distance from the inn, but located in the heart of Lower Village Kennebunk, you’ll surely stumble across Pedro’s. This Kennebunkport restaurant is hard to miss with its oversized metal rooster outside and great patio complete with fire pit. But you’d really be missing out by not trying one of their incredible margaritas with homemade syrups or their authentic Mexican cuisine. Under the same ownership, you can enjoy a great casual meal at the Ramp at Pier 77. This vintage style sports bar offers incredible harbor views and great food. Plus, you might even catch a glimpse of local lobsterers hauling in their catches on the pier. But whatever you choose for a casual meal, these Kennebunkport restaurants have got just the thing to satisfy your cravings!
