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

Where Can You Find the Best Lobster Restaurant in Kennebunkport?

I can’t think of a single restaurant in Kennebunkport where you can’t get some kind of lobster, but that doesn’t mean that they all have the very best lobster in town.  Now let’s be honest – this is Maine, after all, so chances are pretty darn good the lobster will be fresh and tasty just about anywhere.  But as a lifelong lobster connoisseur (seriously, just ask my mother), I will tell you that there is huge difference between a decent lobster and one that knocks your socks… Read More

Where Can You Have a Sunset Dinner in Kennebunkport?

After a truly gorgeous day like today, many people wanted to know where they can have dinner and watch the sunset in Kennebunkport.  The truth is, that with ocean all around Kennebunkport, the skies are stunning everywhere.  Looking down Maine Street from the Maine Stay Inn, you can see picture perfect sunsets. But that’s not exactly what most folks had in mind for this evening, especially as we had lots of anniversaries being celebrated this weekend.  So here are some restaurants with stellar water… Read More

Maine Restaurant Week 2014

Maine Restaurant Week is one of my favorite times of year in Kennebunkport, and it is finally back again!  Not only is it a wonderful way to test out new restaurants or enjoy different options at some old favorites, but it’s also an excuse to order more than you normally would and enjoy leftovers for lunch!  And again this year, quite a few restaurants in Kennebunkport and the surrounding area are participating in 2014.  But unlike other restaurant weeks throughout the country, the entire state… Read More

Celebrating National Clam Chowder Day in Kennebunkport

While New England is certainly known for its clam chowdah, it recently came to my attention that Tuesday was National Clam Chowder Day, and there’s no better place to celebrate than in Kennebunkport Maine!  I mean, honestly, unless you’ve got a shellfish allergy, chances are very good that you’ll enjoy a cup or bowl of this semi-solid deliciousness before heading out of town.  It helps that almost every restaurant in the area has their version on this New England staple on the… Read More

Watching the Superbowl in Kennebunkport

Although many visitors to Kennebunkport ME are bummed that the New England Patriots won’t be strutting their stuff during this weekend’s Superbowl game, I know that won’t squelch their passion for watching the big game. You can be sure that there will be lots of viewing parties across town this Sunday, and while some will choose to watch from the comfort of their own rooms or sitting by the fire in the living room of the main house, there are tons of Kennebunkport restaurants… Read More

Sports Bars in Kennebunkport for World Series Watching

I am probably breaking some kind of cardinal rule in New England by writing this blog while the Red Sox are playing in the World Series, but I realized that not everyone knows where to find sports bars or similar settings in Kennebunkport. And while I enjoy watching the game all curled up in a cozy bed or sofa, I know that a lot of people live for the group dynamic when lots of people are cheering together.  Given how fanatical New… Read More

Finding Great Lobster in Kennebunkport During the Winter

Finding great lobster in Kennebunkport is probably at the top of nearly every visitor’s list (except you shellfish allergic folks – I send my condolences), and visiting during the winter months doesn’t change that.  And surprisingly, it doesn’t make it much harder!  But yes, I said it.  The W word.  And while there is still tons of glorious fall weather to enjoy, the days are getting a bit shorter and the temps a bit cooler.  I for one am always reluctant to… Read More

Gluten Free Bakery Options Come to Kennebunkport Maine

  Kennebunkport Maine restaurants have done a great job jumping on the gluten free bandwagon, but the coffee shops and bakeries have been slow to meet the demand.  Earlier this year, Mornings in Paris, an “old world” style coffee shop located in the heart of the Old Port of Portland, opened a new location here in Kennebunkport Maine.  They’ve brought a tremendous assortment of teas and coffee varieties, great WiFi (for free), and delicious treats to town.  But since the Maine Stay… Read More
