our only problem was there was no social distancing of any sorts. tables were way to close where we were bumping into chairs while trying to adjust our space. no masks and no requests of proof of vaccines

Dinner at Hurricane exceeded my expectations. Had made reservations at Mabel’s but they called and said they were closing early for the season. They recommend Hurricane and I’m glad they did. Great martini with xtra flask submerged in ice! Shared the crab cakes which were very fresh and good. Bread was also fresh and warm! The seafood stew was outrageous! So much seafood- just loved the scallops and the almond basil pesto was fabulous! Nice 1/2 lobster and numerous clams and mussels. My husband rated his pork chop as one of the best he had ever eaten. Service was a bit slow between appetizer and mains but all and all a great experience! Truly enjoyed it way more than Ocean at Arundel Inn!

Service was slow. Never brought us bread till we asked another server. Ran out of lobster for lobster Cobb salad and lobster chowder. How can you run out of lobster in Kennebunkport?
Wedge salad had croutons that came right out of a Pepperidge farm box. Scallops on the 2lbs baked lobster were not local scallops and the shrimps in the stuffing were the size of your thumb nail. Will not go back!!!

Always one of our favorite spots when we come up to our Kennebunk Beach condo! Love, Love, LOVE that we can make a reservation and know we’ll be able to come up with friends and introduce them to on of the best restaurants in K’pt! The back tent has become a family favorite during the summer … and the front bar tables offer a great and fun atmosphere!

Hurricanes is always on our list of good restaurants when in Kport. The menu is varied enough to please most, and the wines by the glass are not just your standard offerings. Quite noisy last night due to a few large parties but they tend to quiet down once food is served. Hurricanes is good but getting a bit pricey

My wife and I were visiting Maine for vacation. Kennebunkport was our last stop in Maine and we were looking for a nice place for dinner. We settled upon Hurricane because of its varied menu. We were seated immediately on arrival. The restaurant was very busy, with several large parties, but our waiter came to the table quickly and was pretty attentive. My wife ordered the seafood stew and I ordered the pork chop. Both were well prepared and very tasty. I would highly recommend Hurricane.

Wonderful dinner… very accommodating with moving our reservation. Outstanding service … I wish I got her name but she was attentive without being overly hovering. Food was terrific …. The halibut special was to die for! I met family for a birthday dinner and we could not have asked for a better time.

Say at the bar which was very busy. Bartender was a bit too busy for food service at bar. Food was excellent. Had osso bucco that was outstanding. Liver pâté starter was a healthy portion and also outstanding. Will return soon

We had the best time - amazing cosmos, the best lobster chowder, followed by boiled lobster and mussels with drawn butter. And topped it all off with blueberry crumble. To die for, great view, buzzy atmosphere, fresh seafood. As Texans we were in Heaven :)

We had reservation for 1130am and didnt realize, since it was a Sunday, there would be brunch and music.We were offered a outside table which looked over the water.You could order from a regular or brunch menu.The servers were efficient and accomadating asking if we wanted or they could do anything else.The cocktails were good and they had some specials.The food was great-of course we had seafood being in Maine but there are plenty of other meal options.The restaurant looks small from the outside but it is not and has plenty of inside and outside seating.We really enjoyed everything about our experience and the staff and food was great.Thank you Hurricane restaurant!

We love this restaurant. It’s usually a real treat which we look forward to for months. We drove in from out of state with friends, very much looking forward to dining there, and of course we had a reservation, which was confirmed by Open Table a day ahead.
Upon arrival and after driving all day, we found a sign on the door stating that the restaurant was temporarily closed. A nearby shop owner informed us that the restaurant was closed due to Covid. While I certainly understand the problems everyone is dealing with, shortages of staff, food chain supply problems, etc., I felt is was in very poor form that we were not called ahead of time, even earlier that day. We ended up with a very subpar dinner at another establishment on our only night in town We would have expected more from the management of a fine dining restaurant. Someone should have called guests with reservations or informed Open Table, so guests wouldn’t show up to a closed restaurant.
PS We hope everyone recovers.

I made a reservation on open table and it was accepted only yo get the restaurant that was closed. Not sure who’s fault that was but very disappointing as by the time we found out it was closed we didn’t have any other options except to wait over an hour someplace else.

This is our go to in KPT. We love love love the great staff! Taylor, Mikey, Taylor etc are hard working and dedicated to this establishment! We had the seasonal salmon which was delicious and of course local Me oysters! Great wine list but if you have a favorite drink, they will make it for you! They make a great coconut margarita! You will never go wrong at the Hurricane but make reservations because if not you could miss out it is that popular!
