We sat in the bar area so the ambiance wasn't that great. The chairs were wobbly and the lighting bright. The food was amazing and there was live music.

Always enjoy Hurricane's whether for lunch, brunch or dinner. Great selection of food, presented very attractively and delicious, no matter what we order. Wait staff always friendly, attentive and professional. Only minor complaint is when crowded, it can be quite noisy.

Thought the waiter who delivered food was rude and had no sense of humor. Food was mediocre at best and not with the money. Would not go back

I always have a dinner here when I’m in Kennebunkport. Love the ambiance and the location. This dinner was good with the exception of my lobster was a bit under cooked. I had to ask the waiter to help me get the tail out of the shell. Was chewy but tasty. Oysters were great!

Probably the worst service I’ve had in a while. It took over 40 minutes to get our appetizer, which was shrimp cocktail and then was only brought out when I asked for it. Our order was wrong and no apologies were made and no effort to dry and make the situation better.

We were recommended this restaurant by some of the folks we met while wondering around town. I started with the house salad which was really good, I loved the dressing My date had the Caesar salad which he said was good but just your basic salad. For the main course I got the special which was grilled fish with candied beets and horseradish potatoes, while it look beautiful, it was not good at all. The fish was so charred it had bites of tasting burnt and it was quite dry. While the horseradish potatoes sounded good in theory it did not taste great or compliment the fish or beets at all. And in my opinion they could have left the beets off the plate completely. My date had the pan roasted chicken breast and my God was it amazing. The chicken was flavorful and moist, the Mac and cheese orzo was my favorite, I could have eaten this as my entire meal. We finished dinner with the apple pie which was also delicious, we were already full and ate every last bite. Service was great attentive enough but not hovering over us. Tables were fairly close but I kind of liked this, it was fairly noisy but you didn’t feel like you were hearing any other conversations. Restaurant was beautiful, dim lights and lots of open windows, great for special occasions. Would go back again, just maybe not get the fish.

Outstanding menu choices. Very good cocktails. Could use more Chardonnays by the glass. Great oysters and seafood. Very attentive but not intrusive staff. Very accommodating.

Once sat, it took our server almost 15 minutes (waaaay tooooo long) to come over to greet us. I had to ask for our candle to be lit. When our appetizers arrived, we were told by another server "they were sitting up in the window so I figured I would bring them out". After checking to see that my husband's steak was cooked properly, she did not circle back to see if our meals tasted ok until we were more than half way through them. It was certainly busy in there for a Tuesday night but given all I have ever heard about Hurricanes, it was a disappointing choice for our anniversary dinner. We will go back to our consistent favorite ...

It wasn’t your best effort. Usually one of my favorites in Kennebunkport but not this time. Short Rib was tough snd the soup wasn’t the norm. You’ll get another shot!

The best place to eat in Kennebunkport. It is our favorite place to dine every year. Making a reservation is a big plus. We arrived on time and were seated right away. The service was very good. As always the place is busy. Our meals were delayed, or overlooked. We did wait for the food longer than usual. Overall the food was great as always. We have never been disappointed. Save room for the deserts! See you next year.
