Good food, nice ambiance. Would definitely go back.
Made a reservation for 5PM dinner (earliest available and we were the first people being seated for dinner.) The room was empty, but they gave us a tiny table adjacent to the front door. There were two doors to the outside and about half of the people who came in left them open to the arctic air from the outside. Even when people did close the doors, there came an arctic blast every time they opened. A couple with a very young child came in and were offered a seat in the corner of the room, which they did not want for some reason. They moved next to us at one of the small tables, though they added a child seat. When I asked if we could move to that corner table, abandoned by the couple with the kid, we were told we could not because it was reserved. Funny, because we had a made reservation too. Apparently, a lesser one. Eventually a party of two was seated there and I asked to move away from the front door. They seated us way in the back of the hotel away from the front door. Problem solved. There was a choice of a 3 course dinner for $30 or paying individually for each item. We both ordered roast chicken which was on the 3-course dinner, as well as ala carte (for a much higher price.) My guest specified the 3-course, but I just order the chicken. $1 more for the 3-course, for an added a choice of salad and dessert. Chicken looked great but had a smelly kitchen garbage smell and boiled texture. Could have been impacted by the table shuffle. Apple crisp for dessert, had styrofoam textured apples and oats very touch to chew. Sad, because they use high quality local ingredients and have a very creative menu. But no one in the kitchen seemed to know how to check the results, so they assembled a bunch of mediocre food that was flawed and no one noticed. Finally, we got charged for each individual item on the $30 3-course menu, which inflated the bill about $40. This was corrected. We won't be back soon, if ever.
Really enjoyed our dinner. Great service and nice, quaint environment.
We enjoyed our dinner at the Burleigh very much and would return again. Was a little disappointed we were not seated at a high top as I had requested (being on crutches makes regular seating difficult) and we thought the draft from the front door opening throughout the evening detracted from the otherwise beautiful atmosphere. However, those two glitches aside, we were very satisfied with the food, service, value and talented live guitarist who entertained a lively bar crowd all evening. We would recommend the Burleigh to anyone and would gladly return again.
Great live music with Ocean Ave band!
Had dinner on Saturday evening, February 10th. We sat in a rear dining room that cozy and comfortable, with a nice fireplace burning. Unfortunately, at a nearby table a gentleman was speaking In the voice of a character from “Family Guy” (the old pervert), which may have been mildly amusing for the first 3 minutes, but a full hour? Come on dude, let it go. Service was friendly, but a little on the slow side. We felt like the menu was limited. We each chose the steak, it was cooked as ordered and acceptable, but not particularly noteworthy - not much better than a typical grocery store cut. GF asked for the au gratin potatoes in place of the fries, found them to be bland. All in all, it wasn’t horrible, but it certainly fell short of our expectations.
Great experience, in every way!
Our first time, we enjoyed the casual elegance , quick service and very good food.
Great fun to enjoy the live music! Delicious food and even though we were ordering pretty much as the kitchen was closing, service was very warm and friendly!! We’ll be back!
We had the pleasure of staying at the Kennebunkport Inn for the Holidays and spent an evening at the Burleigh for dinner. We had a superior experience with regard to the food, staff, customers, and everything and everyone we came in contact with. We love Maine and now we love the Kennebunkport Inn and the Burleigh. We will be back to enjoy more of the same. Thanks so much for your hospitality. Happy New Year !!!
limited menu. would be nice to see a haddock dish on menu. Only fish was fishermans stew or lobster mac & cheese. Braised ribs were tasty but Gnocci was very bland.
Love The Burleigh. Food is always delicious and the staff are excellent.
Went for prelude pre fix, disappointed with the price, 75$. I'm fine paying that,but what we got was not worth the money. Also, we had to get up twice to close the doors that were left wide open during a snow storm just off the back dining room.
It was the day before XMAS Prelude and we got a table next to the fireplace. The service was attentive and friendly and the food well prepared. I ordered the lobster mac & cheese and was totallly delighted. Other members of our party were impressed with food quality and service. Definitely heading back again and highly recommended!
We enjoyed the Burleigh. Service was attentive and pleasant and we were the only table early on Sunday. Had a very good freshly made vodka gimlet and . the lobster BLT(without bacon by request). It was very good and a large serving. I would recommend it for lobster lovers.
A wonderful Thanksgiving surprise for three locals. The service was spectacular by a Colorado transplant, Jessica. She made the meal for us. traditional fare was wonderful, menu options fantastic. We will be back for date night.
Intimate dining area which felt cozy and welcoming. Food was good. Only restaurant I️ have ever dined at in America that does not award open table points....why??? If i had known this (paid more attention when making reservation but...didn’t think this was possible so didn’t think to look) i would not have gone. I will not go back because of this.
Welcoming and good food. menu not extensive but caters for most options.
Small space with loud live music made it hard to converse
Chef was amazing!
We love The Burleigh and come in often. Food is very good and service is spectacular. Menu is not huge but there is something for everyone.
I made the reservation for my Husband and I to have an Anniversary Dinner. We have been coming up to the Kennebunk area for many years. I've walked by the Kennebunkport Inn many times, but have never been inside. I went on Open Table to inquire and the Burliegh came up, so I decided to book. Let me start by saying it was an Amazing Meal! The food, the service was outstanding. I will go back again and again. If I can make one suggestion though, it would to offer a small complimentary dessert for an Anniversary or a Birthday.
The experience was wonderful ! And the food presentation exceptional!
My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary dinner and everything was delightful. Soon as we arrived the very friendly hostess wishes us a happy anniversary - it was a nice touch! I ordered the fisherman's stew, which was delicious and filled with lots of seafood! It did not disappoint, I couldn't even finish it I got so full. My boyfriend ordered the Steak Frites which he enjoyed very much - the fires were so yummy! The service was truly outstanding. Our server was very friendly, attentive and a joy. The only downfall of the night was we were placed at a table close to the door. It wasn't a big deal because the restaurant was very cozy and comfortable but we would have rather of like to sit by the fireplace. Needless to say, we enjoyed are time and it made for a special anniversary dinner. We will definitely come back next time we visit Kennebunkport.
We go to the burly at least 3 to 4 times per month. The staff are fantastic and we are always made to feel so welcome. We enjoyed the food very much and have appreciated the new fall menu .
Food was excellent and service (waiter was Topher) was excellent and welcoming. Great atmoshphere in quaint New England inn. Live entertainment with singers/guitars made it extra special. Highly recommended! Thanks,
We at the Burleigh early one night in October. We arrived at 5:30 and obviously were seated immediately. We had a good cocktail and glass of wine. My husband had the roasted chicken and he LOVED it. So tender and seasoning was perfect. I had the fisherman's stew and it was also very good. Our server was very attentive and helpful with making our dinner choice. The arugula salad was also very good. Beautiful setting in the dining room.
Great food & service!
Both the wait staff & chef were very attentive.
Loved the lobster Mac @ cheese!
Ocean ave band was very entertaining to go along with great salad and pork entree.
Seafood stew with saffron base was exellent! Beautiful arugula salad with beets - fresh local ingredients. Though a bit understaffed our waiter was both efficient and attentive to our needs. Great local vibe. Cozy and inviting ambiance.
A slight delay at reception, but service was quick overall. The combination of talent from One Dock and Big Fish makes this a winner for food. Be sure and ask for specials.
We love it here. New changes to the menu for Fall are excellent. Pork and chicken dishes are fantastic!
This was our first place to eat in Kennebunkport. It is located in an Inn just off the water in the center of the shopping area. The restaurant is very beautiful and comfortable with a small space vibe. The food is outstanding and very interesting. The service was very competent but a little slow and in all fairness we ate early and they might not have been fully staffed. I will go back again.
je ne recommanderai jamais ce restaurant. la nourriture est franchement ordinaire, sans originalité et dispendieuse, et le service est tout simplement inadéquat. dommage pour un bel hôtel de "renom"...
Wonderful, mentioned anniversary in reservations and they gave us a lovely dessert with a candle.
Great new restaurant in the Kennebunkport inn. Quite Sunday night but we were treated like king and queen. We got the fried Brussels sprouts and the grilled peppers and they were to die for. I got the most tasty straight forward Cesar salad I ever tasted and my wife got the garden salad and by the way the portions were big! We both got the burger w/ fried egg and it was delicious and fresh as well. Do yourself a favor and give this place a try. Our server Mania was a gentleman and professional. We will be back.
We were disappointed with the “comfort food” menu and, especially, the lack of seafood and fish offerings on the menu. We were seated far from the main dining area and bar, in an isolated and boring space. Service was friendly but inexperienced. Disappointed after so many previous experiences when it was just “The Kennebunkport Inn” dining room. New layout and menu don’t work for us.
First time visit to The Burleigh---was very good and service was outstanding and pleasant. Ate inside and it was very nice/clean/tastefully seaport decorated. Comfortable seating. Staff was engaging and helpful when asking for taste opinions. Will go back again when in Maine. Lots of travel experiences and this is a great pick for food lovers.
Love the fried Brussels sprouts! Tried several dishes and I really love all the flavor combinations and the vibrant spices that really balance out the meal.
Nice but not fancy. Food was very good with lots of size options. Drinks on point!
We were delighted to experience this restaurant on our vacation. We had scallops and the steak. The steak was perfectly cooked as requested and it had an outstanding flavor. The scallops were cooked to perfection sitting on creamy polenta and swiss chard . We returned on our last night of vacation knowing that we weren't going to taste the exceptional quality of both dishes. This time we ordered the meatballs, which were moist and oh so good sitting on orchiette and the cauliflower sitting on hummus - both not to be missed. Loved the scallops both times. The wine recommended by the chef was a perfectly chosen white the first night. The second night two perfectly chosen reds to compare. Exceptionally good wines paired well. Both times, the waiters were so attentive and genuinely happy. Loved, loved, loved the experience.
We have not been for years, what a wonderful evening, celebrating our anniversary !!
Great food, service .............nice deck for a cocktail.
