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

Cozy Kennebunkport Restaurants to Fight the Winter Chill!

Unlike many other Maine vacation destinations, Kennebunkport truly is a year round community, and even during this “polar vortex” there are lots of great Kennebunkport restaurants that aren’t turned off by the chilly temps.  Sure, there are a few restaurants that close up shop for the winter, but for the most part they are the ones that aren’t really built to be heated effectively.  And every year the local restauranteurs decide when to take their family vacation or close for renovations or… 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

Celebrating National Pizza Month in Kennebunkport

So while October might be known for its candy corn and fun size candy bars, it is also National Pizza Month and Kennebunkport has lots to offer in the way of pizza pies!  And while we could choose something like salad or soup to keep our blood sugar from surging, pizza is just so much more fun – and since it’s the food of the month, we’re just being festive.  It’s like a rule or something.  Right?  Fortunately, there are options for… Read More

Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week is Coming!

For the first time ever, the incredible restaurants of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are teaming up to present the Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week, starting this Sunday, September 22, 2013 until the 28th!  While we absolutely love Maine Restaurant Week (and any excuse to try fun new spots), we’re stoked that nearly all of the area restaurants are participating in this inaugural event.  So not only is fall foliage season upon us, but the restaurants are also showing us their true “colors” by whipping… Read More

Enjoying a Waterfront Lunch in Kennebunkport Maine

Sometimes it is hard to believe that in the seaside village of Kennebunkport Maine, there are only a handful of waterfront restaurants.  But for many, sitting on the water and enjoying a good meal is an absolute must – a deal breaker even! As usual, we’ve got you covered, no matter what style restaurant strikes your fancy. Looking for casual?  Federal Jack’s sits just a short walk from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast and in close proximity to the beach (a perfect midway… Read More
