We often dine at 50 Local and send many of our Inn at English Meadows guests there, as well. And, because 50 Local is open year round we will continue to do so this winter.

The restaurant was packed so we were expecting great food. The portions were small and prices were a little high. Crab cakes looked like a hushpuppy. Hamburger and salads were just okay. Gnocchi was good. Nice selection of beer. Service was good. Parking was easy.

Very, very limited menu. The food was less than good and the wine was seriously over priced. The bill almost stopped my heart. My worst experience in Kennebunk Maine for dinner.

Our meal, menu and check were almost impossible to see with the extremely dim lighting. Had to use our IPhone flashlights to see the menu and read the bill. Also really had a tough time seeing what we were eating when our orders arrived. We're...More

The food is all fresh and , all local. I eat here all the time and love it. The drinks are a bit trendy, but the salads make life worth living.
