First time I've been there.
First time I've been there. The food was very good, our waitress was really attentive. We came for a birthday celebration and got just what we wanted. A special evening. I would recommend to anyone.

Very good dinners but a bit rushed
Overall the dinner that my wife and I had at Hurricane's was very good. For appetizers, my wife had a small house salad and I had an iceberg wedge. Both, while not outstanding, were very good. For our entrees, my wife had grilled shrimp over noodles topped with a delicious bulb of roasted garlic. I had a grilled seafood medley of grilled shrimp and swordfish. Both of our meals were very good.
The only downside was that we felt a bit rushed by our waitress. Drinks, appetizers and entrees seemed to come in rapid succession. The adjacent table, which was being waited on by a different waitress brought the couple their main courses within only a few minutes after they got the chowder appetizers.

We are so lucky to have such a great restaurant so close to home. A fantastic wine list, oysters and a great menu keeps us coming back.

Great location - great food
The restaurant is in Dock Square, with the dining room overlooking the Kennebunk River basin. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The special Mothers' Day menu was excellent and varied, and included a salmon dish with a grilled lobster tail, cioppino, and tempura fried spicy tuna rolls. Everything was prepared to perfection; a thoroughly enjoyable experience!

We have said it before and say it again...excellent food, well prepared, great service. We live in Kennebunk and have made this a regular spot for us. Try the chicken satay for a starter; the salads are great esp. the Caesar. I do not eat red meat so I enjoy the sea food dishes which are always excellent; my wife is a meat eater and swears that their burgers are THE best.

This was the last night foe the public suppers and the place was booming! Food, as usual, was very good!

Upscale in a quaint town
Great food great service, presented well, we'll worth. The prices for location, food, etc. will definitely return
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a great restaurant! The food and service was excellent. Unfortunately, our 2 family members couldn't join us and had to cancel at the last minute - Restaurant staff were very understanding and let us keep our window table - thoroughly enjoyed our meal; baked lobster was out of this world and the beef tenderloin melted in your mouth; this was our second visit and we can't wait to come again!

Great Meal and outstanding service
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and this restaurant was recommended to us. We were not disappointed! Everthing about the restaurant was wonderful, starting with the food. Our waitress was outstanding. The only problem was a group of very noisy people at the table next to us.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure to return to!
We make a point of reserving at the Hurricane every visit to Kennebunkport as we have never been disappointed.The Mediterranean Seafood Stew is a favourite and the view of the sun setting over the harbour is unbeatable. We will be back next trip as our experience was once again ideal.

The food was delicious--especially the baked stuffed lobster. The entire staff was very friendly, and found us a table with a great view.

Beautiful view & lobster
The restaurant has a beautiful view over the river and is perfectly located off the center of Kennebunkport. The service is outstanding and the lobster was fabulous; my wife had a lobster Cobb salad unlike any other, perfect combination of flavors!
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great dinner
We have eaten here a number of times over the last few years. The food and service are consistently top notch. We will return!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined at Hurricane
We have dined at Hurricane several times. Always top notch. It is a small dining room so a little close when there's a crowd. A best bet in KBPT.

Dining at the Hurricane . . .
We used Open Table to book our Saturday nite reservation. Upon arriving we asked if we could dine in the Bar Area. after a short wait we were seated and proceeded to enjoy a great Filet & Lobster dinner! Service was good, the drinks were good, the food was great! If there was a negative it was that the Air Conditioners could not keep up with the heat wave outside and the temperature inside was a bit uncomfortable.
The other thing is that when we moved into the Bar the restaurant "cancelled" our Open Table reservation so no credit would be given.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the Baked Stuffed Lobster,
Was to die for,
My Wife had the Statler Chicken was great also.

A destination restaurant
Every year we spend a few days in Kennebunkport. It has been our go to getaway for over 30 years. About 10 years ago we discovered the Hurricane Restaurant in Dock Square and have enjoyed many meals there ever since. The quality and preparation of food is unsurpassed. Service is impeccable.I started off with the fresh wedge salad of iceberg lettuce and sunburst tomatoes, which was a flavored with a creamy bleu cheese dressing and delicious smoked bacon. It was followed by a roasted statler chicken entree accompanied with an orzo-pecorino mac & cheese. The chicken was succulent, juicy and so flavorful and the mac & cheese was like a risotto. I should also mention that their fresh baked warm bread and olive oil could be a meal in it self.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful views and great food
We tried Hurricane on the recommendation of our innkeeper. We were not disappointed. The pan seared halibut was divine as was the tenderloin. The menu is extensive enough to please anyone's palate and the views make you feel as if you are outside!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is our second visit as we are summer people only. Your wait staff made this a lovely experience for us and our guests. She was delightful and very efficient. We did wait for our food a little longer than expected, but it was well worth the wait. I would certainly recommend the restaurant and tell them that it was a very, very good dining experience.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had our anniversary here
We had our anniversary here and the staff stepped up to provide a nice table and good service. The food was very good.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were there for lunch on a summer Saturday. We had made reservations and were seated right away. Service was attentive. But as the restaurant filled there was a considerable wait between appetizers and entree. Clam appetizer was great as was the lobster chowder. Turkey BLT and crab and havarti sandwich were very good.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lobster chowder was wonderful
We had a really nice time at Hurricane. Great view, window table. Service was very good, food great. Lobster chowder awesome.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding menu and wine list
The Hurricane offers an outstanding menu of interesting options, an impressive wine list and a beautiful view. My wife and I found this to be our best dining experience in Kennebunkport.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are from town and thus able to enjoy Hurricane's on a regular basis. It is consistently excellent...wonderful food, the kitchen is accommodative to dietary needs, the staff is knowledgeable, attentive and courteous. In a word: GREAT!

Fun in Kennebunkport
First of all, our server was delightful. Everything was explained and handled with a smile. We were all laughing when she described the oysters, especially the chubby puppies, which were fresh and delicious. The lobster bisque was a meal in itself, rich and velvety.
Some nice touches were the olive oil bottle on the table, the hot bread, the drinks served on crushed ice and the view. Overall it was a fun evening.

Great Restaurant with Local Flavor
We love the Hurricane restaurant. Excellent seafood, great bar and terrific service.

Dinner at Hurricane RestKennebunkp.
Beautiful setting on the Kennebunk River in Kennebunkport. Excellent wine list and service. Most food preparation was excellent except vegetables. The green beans were barley blanched or literally raw. This spoiled what was otherwise a well prepare dish scallops and shrimp. Without this serious error food would be close to 5 stars.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
EXcellent Maine dining!
the lobster stew is a memorable meal all by itself!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food and a great view
The restaurant has a great location overlooking the river. The Mediterranean seafood stew was very flavorful and a generous portion. My husband had the beef tenderloin and it was cooked perfectly with a delicious smashed potato side. Sit by the windows if you can for a great view.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great visit.
We have dined at Hurricane many times and this experience was right in line with all of our previous visits. You can always expect between a 4 and 5 star experience. This time the food was excellent (as expected) but the desserts were off the hook. Just outstanding in every way. If you're in the Kennebunks and are looking for a place that's great for couples or small groups then this is the stop.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thouroughly enjoyed dinner with the family at Hurricane Restaurant. Something for everyone including one picky teenager. The lobster corn chowder was fantastic. My son had the chicken satay app which easily work as a dinner....presentation was beautiful! Hurricane style shrimp scampi always a treat and met expectations once again. Would not vacation in Kennebunkport without a visit or two to Hurricane's.r

Best in Kennebunkport
Always an enjoyable dining experience...excellent food choices, great wait staff, overall...wonderful!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience, all-around. Perfect waterside setting, quick and friendly service, great wine list, and the oysters, and dinners were perfect.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
You will return year after year!
The Hurricane Restaurant in the heart of downtown Kennebunkport, ME is a place you will revisit summer after summer. Visit just before sunset and wait for a window table. Enjoy the sunset over the marsh along with one of their signature martinis. I recommend the Safflower Martini made with Blue Bombay Sapphire Gin, St Germaine Liquor and a splash of white cranberry juice and a twist of lemon... Ahhh... "Summer in a glass". The lobster chowder is AMAZING and the Caesar Salad, with half a lobster, is a must have. Enjoy this restaurants romantic atmosphere with the one you love or bring along friends for a fabuous evening! This is the one of the top restaurants of the area!!

Huuricanes continues to be
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.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
And don't get there enough. Professional staff, delicious food and beautiful scenery make this a fantastic spot!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beginning last year we have attended several of the community suppers. The 3 entrees they offer for special pricing are great ! Service is prompt and friendly! 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!!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food and superb service.
great food and superb service. Best restaurant that we found in Kennebunkport!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous as always.....
Dined at The Hurricane Sunday evening....what a great restaurant!! I chose the seafood stew, which was prepared with scallops, clams, mussels, shrimp and 1/2 a steamed lobster... 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!!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice find
Nice spot in the center of Kennebunkport as it is in walking distance of the center of town. Good food at reasonable price levels
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
So lucky to live in the area
We love going to Hurricane's. They have delicious food, an outstanding wine list and the service is spectacular. Seafood, filet mignon, butternut squash ravioli, beautiful salads, and really great soups (not to mention the chocolate hurricane for dessert! All fabulous.

Great Public Supper menu ..Just one more reason to visit this wonderful restaurant.. Never fails to please...

Always a good meal
The service and the food are always outstanding. We have enjoyed all the meals when we have visited. Our grand-daughter who was visiting from California enjoyed the seafood. Oyster night is always a good night. They are offered in many variations.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Food, Drinks and Service
My fav place in KB! Great drinks at the bar. very relaxing. Food was awesome as always. Autumn salad was the starter and the seafood stew is a must!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, always consistent!
Had what is probably our 100th great meal in a row. Their Tuesday night suppers are the best deal in town, arguably the state! Best bread in town and a very accommodating staff. Will be back soon and often.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The title says it all. Great food, well prepared with wonderful service.

Great food & service - one comment
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!
