Spring Restaurant Openings in Kennebunkport Maine!

Spring has arrived in Kennebunkport Maine, and with it comes the re-opening of the restaurants that operate seasonally. While most are open year round, there are a few that don’t have adequate heating systems to support patrons during the colder months, so their springtime openings really mean that spring is here and summer is well on its way! Over the past few weeks, some favorites have opened their doors, and others are coming very soon! A tried and true favorite, Mabel’s Lobster… Read More

Celebrating Pi Day with Blueberry Pie in Kennebunkport

Yesterday marks a favorite date for mathematicians all over the world, but it also means an early spring excuse to enjoy lots of pie – particularly blueberry! And Kennebunkport is a fantastic location to enjoy slices of the best blueberry pie around! Here’s a rundown of some personal faves for indulging in some of the fruity delight that makes Maine famous: They might not be open quite in time for March’s famous Pi Day, but no list of the best places for blueberry… Read More

2016 Maine Restaurant Week is Coming!

The Maine culinary scene has blossomed over the last decade, and  Maine Restaurant Week is an incredible opportunity to explore some of the amazing eateries in the state. Not only is it a way to try new dishes at your favorite spots, but it is a fantastic way to test out those spots you’ve been meaning to try! Plus, it’s an excuse to order a little more than you would ordinarily and enjoy leftovers for lunch! Not many restaurants in the Kennebunkport area are on the list… Read More

Celebrating National Pizza Month in Kennebunkport

Even though the leaves are just beginning to turn, it is already almost October, and that means National Pizza Month! And while you may associate the month of October with pumpkins, candy corn, and fun-size candy bars, pizza is the food of the month (although our waistlines might prefer if it were National Broccoli Month instead). Fortunately, Kennebunkport has lots to offer in the way of pizza! When visiting the Maine Coast, lobster and blueberry pie usually comes to mind, but more visitors than… Read More

5 Best Places to Eat Lobster in Southern Maine

I don’t think there’s a single restaurant in Southern Maine that doesn’t serve lobster in some form, but there are a few restaurants that make my list of 5 Best Places to Eat Lobster. Now, I am a little bit partial to Kennebunkport, but there are some truly notable locations to enjoy lobster dinners, but certainly not all of my top 5 are located in town! In an effort to be totally honest, though, this is Maine after all. Lobster is going to be… Read More

Ports Of Italy Restaurant Comes to Kennebunkport

The Kennebunkport/Kennebunk border saw a monumental change to the landscape during the first months of 2015, culminating in the arrival of Ports of Italy Restaurant. The long-standing Bartley’s Restaurant closed its doors and was demolished – and in its wake a large clapboard building rose up just before the bridge to Kennebunkport Maine. It looked out of place during initial construction, but once complete, Ports of Italy fits the bill as a Maine cottage style building, and its large front windows allow… Read More

Enjoying A Classic Lobster Dinner in Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport is one of those coastal Maine spots where you can find delicious lobster almost anywhere, but there are very few spots I believe serve the perfect classic lobster dinner. Honestly, though, this is Maine. The lobster is going to be good and fresh just about anywhere. Now, I am a lifelong lobster connoisseur (seriously, just ask my mother), so I will be the first to admit that there is an immense difference between a decent lobster and a knock your socks off, crave-inducing, must drive hundreds… Read More

Cozy Kennebunkport Restaurants for the Fall

Unlike many other Maine vacation destinations, Kennebunkport truly is a year round community, and even as the peak of fall foliage passes us by, there are lots of great Kennebunkport restaurants that are ideal for a fall getaway and cozying up with that special someone.  Sure, there are a few restaurants that don’t have enough insulation to stay open as the mercury drops, there are very few that close up shop anytime before Christmas.  Of course, during the cooler weather restaurant hours may be a… Read More

Happy October From the Maine Coast!

It’s hard to believe, but October is actually here!  So here’s to a happy October from all of us on the Maine Coast!  But I can’t very well write a post entirely about it being October 1, which also means that it is the start of National Pizza Month.  And while you might associate candy corn and fun size candy bars with this month, it’s also the perfect opportunity to indulge in slices a little more frequently than you might otherwise. Fortunately, Kennebunkport has… Read More

Kennebunkport Ice Cream is Tops in the Nation

Sometimes I worry about sounding like a broken record, because there is so much I love about Kennebunkport, and one of those things is the incredible ice cream at Dock Square’s Rococo.  And recently the travel news confirmed what we at the Maine Stay Inn already know – that Rococo has some of the best ice cream in the entire country! Not just in Maine, or even New England, but Kennebunkport’s Rococo sits firmly in the list of the top ten best… Read More
