Hurricane Restaurant - Kennebunkport Ratings and Reviews
white tablecloths and a great view greet you when you enter from the rear door of this new england charmer--from fois gras to rack of lamb, shrimp with fettuccine, steak, puff pastry domed onion soup, and of course whole maine lobster--this is good place to go for an upscale evening out--you can find a real bargain in their 3 course dinners so be sure to check out that part of the menu
I've been here a few times, once alone with my husband and also with my 2 kids, ages 9 and 12. Experiences have generally been good, depending on the server. Food is always very good. We decided to dine here with another couple and their 10 year old daughter while in town for the holiday. Although we originally made a reservation for 4 through OpenTable, the other family called & made a separate reservation. When they arrived before us, they requested that 2 tables be put together so that we could dine altogether. The hostess gave them a hard time at first, saying that was not possible. After some convincing, she gave in and arranged the 2 tables for our group. Besides that, everything else was very good. Our waitress was very attentive, and although the food took longer than usual to come out, it was very tasty. Our group ordered clams on the half shell, wedge salads, veal chop, lobster stew, steamed lobster with mussels, and linguine with shrimp. We also had dessert - strawberry shortcake, blueberry pie, creme brûlée, whoopee pie ice cream & cappuccinos. We were not disappointed with anything. We were the last in the restaurant but did not feel as though we were being rushed in any way. An enjoyable meal. We will return.
First time at this restaurant. Excellent New England feel to the place. Food very good and we lucked into their Wednesday - all wine 1/2 price which is a great deal as they have a respectable list although not too deep - includes everything on the list. My only gripe was that the waiter was clearly more focused on her larger tables and the locals. We had to basically beg her to give us service. Maybe it s "Maine" thing. I would go back as the chef has his kitchen well in hand.
Our meal and service was superb! The view from our table was great. Although the restaurant was very busy , we were very well attended to during the entire meal. We also liked that our meal was served in a leisurely fashion so we were not rushed through courses. We will definitely return to the Hurricane when we are back in the area.
Arrived early for a 6pm reservation, and was seated promptly with attention to our request for waterview. Quickly had menu and drink service. Willing waiter explained specials and preparations. We ordered large lobsters with all supplies provided for easy handling.
My lobster came with mussels that were dry and overdone. When reporting this, a fresh batch was prepared and delivered promptly. Allowed to linger over coffee without being rushed.
Delicious meal with excellent service.
The food here is excellent. The service is average at best. The noise level in this restaurant is the worst I have ever experienced. My wife was sitting next to me and we could not hear each other. The dining room was warm, stuffy and uncomfortable until somebody decided to turn on the air conditioner. Go here for the food it is exceptional. The rest of the experience was forgettable.
I had eaten here 55 years ago as a teenager at the predecessor restaurant Riverside. The Hurricane still has the ambiance (homey white table cloth, looking out on a tidal pond) and he food was top notch. Sunday evening we had "buck-a-shuck" oysters--some of the better ones I've had. Excellent 2 pound lobster, great Mediterranean style fish stew. A great place that recalls old New England.
My friend is a fan of fine wine; I'm a fan of fine desserts--we specialize. He enjoyed two glasses of a zinfandel that was so new to the wine list that our server didn't recognize the name. Despite our philosophical differences in wine versus dessert, we independently ordered the same entree (seared tuna), which was indeed fabulous. And the caramel tiramisu--all mine!-- was beyond compare. We will definitely return, with gusto.
Although I have been to Kennebunkport on numerous occasions this was not one of the eating establishments that I had sampled. My brother who was visiting from Michigan suggested based on a pass visit. We had a great lunch. He had the lobster roll and my wife and I had the haddock sandwich. We were all more than satisfied with our choices. Dessert was Key Lime Pie with a blueberry sauce all-around. This selection was also quite pleasing. My first visit but probably not my last.
It's an AMAZING Restaraunt. The staff are very helpful and very nice. The food is completely and utterly outstanding. I had the short ribs they were the best things I've ever eaten in my life. The gravy everything is amazing. The only thing that's unfortunate is that I don't live close enough so I can go to this restaurant all time.
My wife and I went during Prelude, so as expected it was very crowded, but we were very happy when they seated us within five minutes of our reservation time.
The service staff was awesome as always, as was the food. They probably have the largest wine list in Kennebunkport. We go here every Prelude for the lobster, which in my opinion is also the best in Kennebunkport. Also try the thin-cut salmon appetizer... amazing!
The service and food here never disappoint. I come here late Oct every year and although the rest of town has quieted down, Hurricane is always lively. I happened to be here during restaurant week this year and the special menu option was a fabulous buy. The food is substantial and creative (pumpkin ice cream!) and everyone in my party had a great time. We even sent some of our friends over the next night who also loved it,
I was surprised at the ordinariness of the restaurant and especially its food. While it is located in the center of town, on the river with a view of the bridge, and in two remodeled and renovated former private homes, it was nevertheless ordinary which made me hope for excellent food. (No money on décor so it is saved for wow-able food?) Not so. The onion soup is just that: a simple broth with onions slices topped by a puff pastry; when set in front of me it looked like a pot pie. The Mediterranean seafood stew was a pile of overcooked/over boiled shell fish in a wan broth, but the half lobster was so soggy and mushy and rubbery that it was unpleasant; the claw meat could not be obtained as the shell was too soft. The only Mediterranean about it was the addition of sliced canned olives. Dessert, a blueberry crumble, not pie, was good but overly sweet. Considering that New England cooking is noted for its lobster and blueberry preparations, I was disappointed overall in this kitchen's inability to show off those items to their fullest. And when I returned to my lodgings and mentioned where I had gone for dinner to the locals, their reaction was one of ho-hum and "you should have asked us before you went."
