Reading the reviews it seems as if 50 local is a bit hit and miss. Well the night we went was definitely a hit. Fresh farm and seafood to table fare that was cooked to perfection. Excellent wine list and polished service. Our family is well travelled and have been coming to Kennebunk for over 50 years. Everyone commented on how delicious their meals were. On the night we were there George and Barbara Bush were at an adjoining table and also enjoying the excellent food. Let's keep supporting local fresh food and innovative chefs. Can't wait to return!

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 all for ambiance, but this place took it to the extreme. It was one notch above eating in the dark. Our meals were quite good, though we had to send the roast chicken back (meat was too tough and the side of whipped potatoes was cold), but the crabcakes that came in exchange were much better, as was the grilled pork entree. Crank up the lighting a bit and we'll return, but we won't try eating in the dark again.
