the dining room was closed, due to an event and the off season. After trying 3 other establishments with no reservation, we got frustrated and decided to just eat at the pub. No one but us and the bartender. I wasn't sure I was a fan. But what a pleasant surprise! I ordered the scallops and risotto and they were... More

Our reservation, party of 4, was for 5:30 p.m. We didn't finish dinner until 8:45 p.m. Service was extremely slow. Waitress seemed confused and forgetful. Atmosphere was just so-so. Although the food was very good. One meal chosen off the menu was not available. When we complained to the manager on the way out, he was very nice and he... More

We were staying at the Nonantum, so we decided to have dinner there. Made reservations for 95 Ocean, but when we arrived, we chose to eat in the bar due to the loud piano in the dining room. Not good for those with hearing issues.

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to write! It was me that was working in the dining room that night and it was me who suggested you might want to eat in the bar. Many people enjoy eating in our cozy pub - same great menu but a smaller quieter spot. I was so pleased when you came back and... More

The Nonantum Resort is a little way out of Kennbunkport, and as we do not drink and drive, we decided to eat at 95 Ocean. We were not disappointed. The food and wine were very good and service was efficient and friendly. Worth a visit.

While staying at the resort, we ate here three times. They have nice, cozy little annex porches besides the main dining room. One overlooks Ocean Avenue and the other overlooks the river. Food was quite good at reasonable prices with a lot of Maine homegrown food and recipes. Pan seared scallop entrée was great. Good attentive service too.

Hello Stephen: Local grown food is our specialty here at The Nonantum and the fantastic produce and fish make for an unbeatable combination. We also grow nearly all of our own herbs and I think you can taste the freshness! The scallops were my favorite fall entrée and now for the end of the year holiday specials Chef Steve has... More
