YUMMY! Lobster chowder, salads, seafood stew, garlic shrimp pasta that we had last night was very good, the stand out was the seafood stew! Salads a bit skimpy for the price. Couldn't beat the ambiance in the middle of a snow fall in the water with all the X-Mas lights/decorations outside. Not inexpensive but we enjoyed!

The Hurricane is our favorite restaurant to celebrate special occasions. Tables are always full and quite close together but manageable. There is a very energetic vibe to the dining room and bar. Every detail of service is outstanding, as are the menu choices. We were delighted to learn about the 5-6pm 3-course dinner specials for the evening at a discounted price, though the price point for regular menu items is what you'd expect for the location, food quality and service they deliver. I recommend The Hurricane to those looking for a destination restaurant where you feel like you're in a special place the minute you walk in the door.

We often come down from Montreal to Maine for an October birthday celebration and choose the Hurricane Restaurant for the birthday dinner. This year unfortunately the birthday coincided with the Tuesday evening Public Supper. That meant we had to eat earlier than we would have normally chosen, the noise level was extremely high, and the overall service was less attentive than usual. Luckily, the 2 lb boiled lobster was the best lobster we've ever had.

Always enjoy the food here. We love the hurricane shrimp and the statler chicken. Recently tried the ravioli and it was delicious. We also tried the buffalo cauliflower app and really enjoyed this. Our 11 year old loves getting dressed up and going here.

WE dined on a Tuesday night, featuring their local dinner menu. They were featuring Chicken Pot Pie, Haddock, and Beef Stroganoff. WE had 7:30 reservations. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. Our waitress was welcoming. Upon greeting us and welcoming us she proceeded to let us know if we were there for the local supper menu they were already out of the Haddock and Stroganoff! So much for the local supper menu. I guess it's a way to lure people in for dinner!

Everything about Hurricane was great...the food, the view on the water, the service, the band at the bar. It was the beast meal we had while visiting the East Coast from Baltimore to Maine. My husband had the lamb chops, which were seasoned perfectly. I had the seafood stew which included 1/2 of a lobster. The broth was delicious.

Have eaten here happily many times but tonight the service was not good and the food was less than usual. Not sure what happened but we waited about 30 minutes for a creme brûlée to be served. Hopefully this was just a one off.

This Restaurant was delicious! We had been for lunch once and it was good but never tried it for dinner....vacation week in Kennebunkport, every year and we've now found a great, new place to have dinner every time we visit Maine. Thank you Hurricane Restaurant!

My wife and I went for a late dinner Saturday night. Everything about Hurricanes was amazing. Drinks wine apps and of course the entrees. Service was spot on and atmosphere was what we like. Wasn't quiet but not overly loud either. We were able to have easy conversation. A little more pricey than the surrounding restaurants but well worth it.

Through a recommendation of a friend, I made the reservations through OPEN TABLE> My husband and I were not disappointed! The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. Our meals were delicious and served in a timely matter. The waterfront view was an added bonus. Looking forward to going back the next time we visit the area.

We love Hurricane, we have been going there since they were in Perkin's Cove in Ogonquit. Food is always on point. They honored our reservation on time, no wait, our only complaint is that our server was not very pleasant, maybe she was having a bad night, but we both commented on how she seemed to not be very pleasant. In spite of that small blip, we had a wonderful meal, and an overall positive dining experience.

We were there to celebrate our 51st anniversary.

The food is excellent and very well prepared and presented.

Service was very good but the noise level just a bit too much.

We would return and recommend.
