We have been eating at 95 Ocean for years, since 2002, and the one thing that stands out is the quality of the food and generous portions. If you want seafood, this Restuarant always has delicious large sized scallops over risotto or a lobster special that is usually unique in presentation and very flavorful or you can always go with...

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.

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.

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.
