Off the Beaten Path Kennebunkport Restaurants

On a particularly busy weekend like this one, finding a last-minute Kennebunkport restaurant with open reservations can be a bit of a challenge.  And even though we ask all of our visitors about a week in advance if they would like us to make dining reservations for them, sometimes you just want to be spontaneous!  But that certainly doesn’t have to mean compromising on good food at a time that works for you.  I mean, sure, I could get reservations tonight at… Read More

Lobster Lunches in Kennebunkport Maine

This afternoon I found myself chatting with guests about where they should enjoy a lobster lunch in Kennebunkport, and realized that there happen to be quite a few fantastic options.  Much to their chagrin, they had learned that Nunan’s Lobster Hut, our go-to for uber-casual fresh lobster, was only open for dinner.  Yes, it’s true!  But when they’re out catching your dinner, you really can’t fault them, can you?  I mean, I am certainly willing to wait a few extra hours if… Read More

Enjoying Outdoor Dining in Kennebunkport

This evening I received a welcome surprise – a visit from some of my oldest friends – which meant that we just had to pick a dinner locale with outdoor dining in Kennebunkport.  Today graced us with incredible weather that, while on the warm side, meant that sitting outside for dinner was absolutely perfect – no sweaters required.  But on the stroll downtown from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, I realized just how lucky we are to have such a great assortment of… Read More

Searching for Sweets in Kennebunkport Maine

If you’re anything like me and have more than just a single sweet tooth (I’d say I have a whole mouth full!), look no further than Kennebunkport Maine to quell your cravings.  Fortunately, though not for my waistline, there are lots of great options for candy, cookies, and frozen confections just a short stroll from our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast.  But if you find yourself hankering for a sugar fix before you even arrive, Yummiescandy store in Kittery is a great place… Read More

Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Kennebunkport

Since I was one of those kids that would try (and almost always love) anything you put on my plate, the idea of hunting for restaurants with kids’ menus is pretty foreign, but fortunately for families visiting Kennebunkport, there are quite a few great options for pint-sized visitors.  Inspired by a little guy visiting us with his family this week, I decided to look into menus that are specifically designed with kids in mind, because while most Kennebunkport restaurants are happy to… Read More

Lookin’ for Lobster Shacks in Kennebunkport Maine

If there’s one thing I am asked every day, it is where to find the best lobster shacks in Kennebunkport Maine – and luckily for us (and for you) we have three that are just great!  So while I would never attempt to rank them or label one as the “best”, each one has something to make it unique.  Just around the corner from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is The Clam Shack, which sits on the bridge dividing Kennebunkport from the… Read More

Now Open for Ice Cream In Kennebunkport – Rococo

While Memorial Day weekend might have kicked off the summer, it wouldn’t have been official in Kennebunkport unless it was celebrated with ice cream.  But since I missed the grand opening celebration of Rococo Artisan Ice Creamlast week, I decided to pay them a visit after lunch on Saturday.  Granted, we could not have asked for better weather at the end of May, so that really got me in the mood for a cup. Located right on Spring Street, just down the… Read More

Great Casual Kennebunkport Restaurants

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.… Read More

Bandaloop Restaurant Reopens in Kennebunkport!

While this week was notable for lots of things in Kennebunkport, the reopening of Bandaloop Restaurant topped the charts of many locals and visitors alike.  Last night marked the restaurant’s reopening after a nearly eight week long hiatus, and with temps well into the seventies when its signature red doors opened at 5, it felt more like summer than the start of spring!  Despite the fact that no one at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast has given its new menu a test… Read More

The Reawakening of Kennebunkport Restaurants

Early April is a very exciting time in Kennebunkport, with the weather warming, the days lengthening, and restaurants reopening.  And while a good many are open all year long, a few are indeed seasonal – some because their proprietors need a good long rest after a busy season, and others because they are situated in “charming” buildings that just can’t handle a rough Maine winter (not that we had one this year!).  Yes, believe it or not, quite a few of these… Read More
