Our family was celebrating our mother's 90th birthday and we couldn't have asked for a better gathering. The Kennebunkport Inn has always been lovely, but not one of us remembers the delightful restaurant within the Inn. Our waitress Marjorie was friendly, efficient, and helpful. We started with drinks and an appetizer of the potatoes, which I wasn't sure about but let me tell you it was a winner! Nice baskets of bread arrived and was shared. A few of us had the Lobster Risotto, which certainly had plenty of lobster, one had the steak frites, again a great choice, lobster roll, and the burger also chosen and very good. We were all too full for dessert....but what a surprise when a dessert plate arrived with a candle for our mother! Nice touch. We are so glad that we chose The Burleigh for our special celebration. We will be back, many family members still in the area.

We ventured to Kennebunkport a Sunday late February and decided to give the Burleigh a try. To our surprise they had Sunday special 3 course menus for $30 and a bottle of wine for $25. (Happy hour 3-5pm every day.)
It was quiet with 3 tables taken in the dining room. Ample seating in the bar area with tables and bench seats along the walls. A cozy inn feeling. We were told there was a third dining rooms which opens when needed. Friendly and service minded bar staff.

We ordered our wine and received a basket of nice country bread, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Tastings, all generous portions and artistic presentations:
Appetizer of 2 Fish taco, with a good size fish. Delicious Score 5*
Beet salad with arugula, goat cheese and bacon crumbles. Fresh and satisfying, tasteful dressing. Score 4*
Roasted chicken breast, roasted winter squash, scalloped potato, sun choke marmalade, oyster mushrooms and Meyer lemon. Exceptionally good. Score 5*
Apple cider brined and grilled Pork loin, served with braised cabbage, fresh apple and roasted sweet potato. The pork was a bit on the dry side but it all was tasty. Score 4*

(* We rate the dishes we try on a scale from 1-5, 5 being outstanding.)

We had dinner with another couple and their newborn on a Saturday night in early February. We were seated in a cozy corner near the fireplace with plenty of room for us and the baby. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome and comfortable. We ordered a variety of appetizers, salads, and entrees which were all delicious and very generous portions. We are looking forward to eating there again in the near future.
