    Very scenic spot; however, food is airline quality at best. Go for a glass of wine and sit outside in the Adirondack chairs. Skip dinner here and enjoy at one of the other fine establishments in town.

    Disappointed for the price. Food was OK. I had the vegetable omelet a bit small for 3 eggs. My 1 slice of toast was burned & cold. My husband's baked eggs were small and watery. I believe they were short 1 person so our waiter had to wait on the tables and make drinks at the bar.

    This was our 3rd or 4th visit to Striper's. We love the view, menu and creative cocktails. For some reason, we had to wait 10-15 minutes for our table even though it didn't appear busy. Service was good, very polite. One thing of note for me was that my husband's beer was served in a bottle with no offer of a glass. In a restaurant as nice, beer out of a bottle seems out of place. Our mian concern was the noise level. A larege party at the end of the room was so loud that it was uncomfortable.

    The view is excellent but the food does not live up to it. The clam chowder was ok, but very runny. I had the seared scallops which were good, but not great. My wife ordered the steak which was dry and chewy. The experience was enjoyable for the view, but not the food.

    We dine at Stripers quite frequently, and it is still difficult to choose what to eat, because there are so many good choices. The menu has both small and large plates, with an entire section devoted to Maine's signature food, lobster. The service is always good, and the valet parking is so helpful during the busy seasons.

    We went to this restaurant last week. While the views are beautiful, that was about it. There were only 3 seated tables out on the deck and service was very slow, however he was very nice and was trying. We started with lobster spring rolls that were good, and grilled calamari that was cold and unmemorable. Next we had chowder that tasted as if it was watered down and Luke warm. We had a lobster tagliatelle which had nice flavor but was cold and tasted like it had been sitting there prepped for awhile. We also were served martins that were only half full. It is not an inexpensive restaurant and we were disappointed when we left. Would not go back.

    A must go-to place if you are in Kennebunkport. Delicious food, including fresh lobster and bouillabaise. Also, enjoy the excellent outdoor scenery on an Adirondack chair sipping a glass of wine while you are waiting for your table. You can potentially run into ex-Presidents here.

    This is a beautiful spot but everything else about this restaurant is a huge failure. The food came out cold. The Waiter could never be found. We had to ask twice for bread for the table. Every request from asking for more water to ordering a glass of wine was difficult. The only thing that was prompt about this experience was when we asked for the check...it was on our table instantly, before the table had even been cleared! The food was uninspired, though palatable. I would never recommend going here. There are plenty of much better choices in the area.

    Although we arrived early, it seemed they would only seat us outside until our reservation time. It was a bit on the chilly side so we decided to wait for a table available inside. We enjoyed our wine and the scenery outside for a bit. When we finally got called for our table, there was only 3 tables filled (including ours). I would go back, but I would be more persistent with the hostess about getting seated.

    We truly enjoyed Stripers. Before our reservation we ordered a glass of wine and sat in the Adirondacks on the lawn looking out to the ocean. We saw the sun set and the moon rise. The wine was extremely good. The ambience is so relaxing but far from casual everyday. It was special. The food very good. Our waiter a delight.

    Beautiful view and elegant appointments. The food was very good, the service a bit spotty. Had to ask for bread "oh I think they are baking some more...". With all of the sleek furnishings there are no soft surfaces to dampen the noise which rose to a very high level. We noticed one table ask to be moved from the bar area where it was even noisier.

    After reading many positive Open Table reviews, we headed to Stripers with high hopes for a delicious dinner. Unfortunately, this was one of the most disapponting meals we've shared as a family. The clam chowder consisted of unseasoned, seemingly straight from the carton, sweet cream and steamer NECKS. Listen, living in Newport Rhode Island we have tried countless varieties of clam chowder. Seeing huge black steamer necks floating in our soup was a new (and unappetizing) experience. We moved on to our main courses hoping they'd bring culinary redemption. We were wrong. My dad's burger was a brick. My husband's lobster tagliatelle was over-cooked (pasta disintegrating, lobster resembling a dog's chew toy), mom's dish was in edible. DO NOT GO

    What a lovely evening, starting off with a glass of wine as we watched the sunset in the adirondack chairs along the water. Dinner on the porch was delicious. Clam Chowder was wonderful, not as thick as most & I loved that. So flavorful, packed with tender, soft clams. Swordfish & lobster roll entrees were terrific too. Salted caramel brownie sundae not to be missed. Small though, so maybe order 2!

    We had heard good things and when we arrived and saw the gorgeous view on the outdoor patio we were very excited. However the service was very slow. It took a long time to order despite the restaurant not being very busy. When our food finally arrived, both entrees were cold and the eggs on my husband's lobster Benedict were overcooked. They made his again from scratch and the second time was better, but in my case they either just microwaved my lobster omelet and bacon or put it back in the oven - when the plate came back it was hot but dry, overcooked and unappetizing. I would have sent it back again but we were running late at that point I ate the toast and fruit and called it a day. Have a drink here for the view, skip the food.

    We were there during a thunderstorm, so unfortunately didn't get a chance to experience the indoor/outdoor vibe. Great view, nonetheless. The service was excellent, with knowledgeable staff. This restaurant has no problem with diners sharing dishes, and in fact, the menu rather encourages you to pick a few smaller dishes to share if you're not in the mood for an entrée. We did have entrees, the grilled swordfish was to die for, and the lobster tagliatelle was a light dish full of lobster and vegetables with a very flavorful broth. Looking forward to eating there again soon, maybe for lunch or Sunday brunch.

There were so many interesting options on the menu I would have liked to visit 2-3 times during our stay. By far our best meal in the area.
