Although there were more than a few forlorn faces gathered in our Kennebunkport ME dining room yesterday morning, the conversation eventually turned to where they all decided to watch the big game. While many visitors and guests alike congregated at Federal Jack’s BrewPub, there were lots of other excellent choices to keep in mind for next year’s Superbowl. Now Fed’s might take the cake for the number of televisions and largest bar, but Alisson’s Restaurant is the closest spot to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast. With lots of fun menu items that are perfect for game-time noshing (think fried goodies like chicken tenders, potato
skins, and wings galore), both Federal Jack’s and Alisson’s are close enough that you can walk home after enjoying a few brewskis or to relocate back to the comfort of your room during commercial breaks without missing a moment of playing time. Or, if you are anything like me, make it back without missing any of the commercials! But these big guys aren’t the only Kennebunkport ME restaurants to catch the game. Both Pedro’s and The Ramp have great bars for watching sports on television, but the food offerings here, while less characteristic of your neighbor’s Superbowl party, are truly excellent. Plus, who wouldn’t want a great margarita while watching the Patriots (or insert your favorite local team here)? Despite the plethora of viewing venues available, most of our guests chose to lie low, watching the game in the comfort and privacy of their own room, where they cracked open a bottle of wine and noshed on cheese and crackers (talk about a step up from Uncle Stew’s Superbowl Sunday party). Needless to say, we weren’t exactly overrun with riots like some New England communities and our comfy sitting areas just seemed to win out! So next year, when the Pats find themselves gunning for glory, don’t fret because our Kennebunkport ME bed and breakfast and the surrounding community offer tons of great spots to watch!
