  • "The food was pretty good, although not consistent. The French Onion Soup was outstanding, with a delightful puffed pastry. Wedge Salad was very nicely done with cranberries. The PEI Mussels were the smallest ones I have seen in some time. Big issue was the service. Really poor and no kind of explanation from our server about why or acknowledgement on her part. Also, I had to move my chair at the table as the AC unit on the wall was blowing directly on top of me. Not sure I would go back."

  • "We were seated right away and given a nice corner table overlooking the port. The glare from the sun was the only downside. I had a price fix menu of salmon with ravioli as an appetizer and crime brulee. Flavors combined very well and all were wonderful. Great wine list as well. Would definitely come back."

  • "My wife and I had an anniversary dinner last Sunday evening at the Hurricane. The great reviews that the restaurant receives are truly justified. We started our meal with wine from a very good and reasonably priced wine list. My wife had the the lobster bisque which she said was the best she has tasted. I had the onion soup which was outstanding. For our entrees she selected the halibut and I selected the beef tenderloin. Both meals were perfectly prepared and presented. We were totally satisfied with our meals. I would highly recommend the Hurricane. "

  • "Had a wonderful mid-week dinner at Hurricane, it was our first time trying this restaurant. Not a single item served was a disappointment. the clams casino and oyster rockefeller combo was perfectfully prepared and flavorful, and the rack of lamb and tenderloin dishes were perfectly cooked and incredibly tender. The chocolate mousse was one of the best desserts we have had in recent memory, the vanilla creme brulle was good, but could have used a little bit more of a vanilla flavor. Only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that the tables along the windows are much to close together for comfort. server was very friendly and attentive."

  • "Beautiful view! We love Kennebunkport! We went after Easter mass and enjoyed a delicious brunch! Our server was excellent! I do wish they didn't squish the tables together so tight. When the restaurant is full, it gets really tight and a little too noisy."

  • "I had the Mediterranean Stew for $30. I've had it in the past and it was very good but this time it was quite disappointing. Two shrimp, two scallops, ten mussels and one half of a tiny dried out lobster. They can do better."

  • "The Hurricane goes out of its way to make your lunch or dinner special. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable and your water glass is never empty. The chef really knows what he is doing and the food always comes out hot and perfectly prepared. Whether it is swordfish, chicken,rack of lamb or steak, all dishes are prepared to perfection with a beautiful presentation. The salads and soups are always special. A truly outstanding restaurant with beautiful views of the water. Always a pleasant experience. Truly one of the best restaurants in New England."

  • "Our party of four had a great experience with our dinner at Hurricanes! One comment.. I ordered a bowl of lobster bisque or stew (cannot remember what it was called.) The bowl was four times the size of any bowl of soup I had ever seen and the cost was $14. I thought it would have to be fabulous for the $$ - I was disappointed that the bowl was filled primarily with potatoes and VERY little lobster... What lobster there was was cut into minute pieces so was hardly recognizable... Quite disappointing on that front but good otherwise ... Thank you!"

  • "The Onion Soup was Luke warm. Ordered the tenderloin med rare & received one that was medium well. I decided that I would eat it & most likely would of said very little. What did bother me most was when the waitress finally came over to check on us I let her know that I wasn’t happy with my steak. She looked & said “That is medium well”. At that point she should of either taken it away or stated that she would be right out with one cooked correctly. She instead stood there saying she was sorry & finally asked me what I wanted to do with. My piece of advice, don't ask, correct the mistake! While they didn't charge me for a steak that I really didn’t eat, I came to eat & pay for a meal. I did not come to receive a partial meal for free."

So o incredibly delicious...the almond pesto always takes this dish over the top!!! My husband had the filet served with whipped potatoes and cartelized brussels sprouts...he's not a fan of those mini cabbages, but there wasn't a one left on his plate...!!! We both truly enjoyed every mouthful of our dinners and can't wait to return!!"

Our family buys gift certificates for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. so we can enjoy the community suppers through the off peak season. Love looking out over the river watching kayakers and sunset!!"

  • "Huuricanes continues to be a great dining experience. It is fine for small parties of not more than 4, otherwise it gets a bit crowded. We were dining early which enabled us to enjoy the Price Fox menu. A great 3 course meal for $30 / person. Started with a simple Cesar's salad, then Salmon entree, and then desert (4 scoops of flavored Ice Creams). The exterior walls face the Kennebunk River, giving a great outdoor view while you dine. The location is in the heart of the Dock Square area of Kennebunkport, so you can spend some time walking around the shops either before, or to walk off some of the dinner afterwards. The regular menu is great too, as we have dined here many times before."
