We ate here twice, both times a success. They have a range of smaller plates which is what we wanted. It's imaginative food, well prepared, service was warm and attentive but not overbearing (we are Brits, you know) and the wine list was good. My...More

Cozy and quiet. Love the fact that the menu changes as the seasons change. Fresh farm products purchased locally is important to a local like me. My husband and I visit often for special occasions and when hosting friends. Recommend highly.

Our second great dinner here. Really friendly staff and great farm to table food. Nice choice of fair priced wines. Very attentive to food allergies, in our case gluten free.

50 Local is an important unique restaurant in the area. Independently owned by locals, and this is clearly reflected by the personal attention and friendly warmth of this beautifully set non-pretentious first class place. The food is unique and creative but comforting. Great value with...More

Just returned from an incredible meal. From the melt in your mouth in house made bread, to the Fried Egg Caesar Salad, Haddock with Lemon Risotto and Local veggies, and topping it off with a Carrot Ricotta Cake, this meal was just exquisite. And Katia,...More

We visited Kennebunk/Kennebunkport two weeks before the season kicked in. Several of the local restaurants had yet to reopen. My wife searched around and suggested 50 Local. What a great recommendation. As with most of the area restaurants they offer fresh fish but they also...More

I really like local. The ambiance and drinks are lovely but the food is very overpriced and I wasn’t blown away. Some people love it and still go but I’ve eaten at much nicer restaurants with more imaginative dishes but they’re not close by.

I'm a bit conflicted about this restaurant- it didn't quite make it to "above average" rating. The interior is darkish which, I guess, is their vibe. That was ok with us. The staff was pleasant. The menu is limited though and choices seemed a bit...More
