We made reservations for the 4th of July with no idea we would enjoy such a great dinner. Everything about the meal was enjoyed from the ambience to the really friendly waitstaff to the fabulous food. The meal started with sweet potato rolls with cinnamon butter to a delicious chicken entree and an equally delicious salmon entree to the most amazing orange vanilla cheesecake. My diet went sideways as I couldn’t resist those rolls or dessert. We sat inside but there are some casual Adirondack chairs and a few tables that are first come basis where you can enjoy drinks and /or a meal. Inside there a nice bar area. It was low tide so we were able to walk Goose Rocks beach before dinner. The signage on the street says you need a permit to park but we did see one sign that said 8:00 am - 6:00 pm only for permit parking. We parked across from the inn and no ticket! Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to share your review on TripAdvisor. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience. We hope to welcome you back again soon for either a quick cocktail, lunch, or dinner! The Team at Tides Beach Club

Stripers Waterside Restaurant

Stripers features local seafood on the water with a sunset view of the river and ocean, private beach, and a waterside bar. Have a drink and an appetizer in one of our adirondack chairs on our lawn, or come inside for a great meal, with plenty of options

It had been years since we last tried Stripers but decided with a new, more casual all day menu we would give it a try. We started with salads. I had the Caesar and my wife had a mixed green. Then, I had the mussels which were on the small side but the quantity made up for it. I would say they were just okay. Would not order them again. My wife had the pasta special that she really enjoyed. We sat outside on the deck and really enjoyed the view of the Kennebunk River. Until, being a child friendly hotel, we also had a view of 6-8 children ages 2-5 running around, playing tag and jumping off the stone wall just 15 feet in front of us. We understand they were just being kids, but it certainly did nothing for the ambiance of the setting. So we will give Stripers another try. But if the area between the deck and the river turns out to be a children’s playground again, we won’t return. There are other places in the Kennebunks you can sit and enjoy a quiet meal with a view without having to watch children run, jump, and play.

My last experience was less than stellar. Food was good but not exceptional and staff was less than attentive. Recently tried another location in South Portland and similar experience. Will try again to see if things improved. If not moving on Maine has too many great places to settle

We stopped by Hurricane for a quick lunch and were not disappointed. We were seated at a window table overlooking an inlet and the tourists bustling across the bridge in downtown Kennebunkport. We both had the lobster chowder, which was excellent. Very tasty with chunks of very fresh lobster and potatoes. Will definitely return!

A daily, except on Sunday when closed, happy hour is operated that runs for literally for an hour between the hours of 5PM and 6PM. It was a Monday, my watch registered 5PM and we were seated at the bar. $5 snacks and $5 wine are included plus $2 Narragansett lager and $7 Matt's Whim cocktail. When the bartender was questioned what Matt's Whim was this evening, he responded Tom Collins. We took a pass on Matt, Tom and Narragansett in favor of glasses of pinot grigio and sangiovese. Both were enjoyed along with a happy hour order of mussels in a slightly spicy red sauce.

This is a gem. The food is creative, fun, well prepared, and only with the very best ingredients. The atmosphere is surprisingly casual for a place with such high quality food, and the prices are entirely reasonable. As good as it gets in Kennebunk.
