About The Burleigh

Guests of the Kennebunkport Inn can enjoy a delicious dinner without stepping foot outside the door. The menu features timeless classics from Chefs John Shaw and Eric Murdough – great items for sharing plus a few old favorites from previous menus. And you know we've got a great cocktail menu! The bar will be serving up delicious libations such as The Billows (blueberry-lavender shrub, gin, and prosecco) and the No Name Cocktail (vodka and house-made blueberry syrup, garnished with a lychee fruit). Live music is still a staple each week, keeping the vibe energetic & social. The Garden Social Club, overlooking Kennebunkport's Dock Square, and also the Sun Deck, with views of the Kennebunk River, are open for those nights that you want to dine al fresco (and the fireplace is roaring for those cooler summer evenings!). Sorry, but we do not allow pets in our outdoor dining spaces.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Not exactly what I hoped it would be. Our table was in a sort-of awkward place. It was close to the porch and just inside the dining room. The service was OK. We split a fish sandwich and the chicken avocado sandwich. We enjoyed them both. The onion slices were good too. The menu could use a few more selections. Will not rush back because there are so many other fabulous restaurants in the area.

The space is beautiful and the food was fantastic. The experience started poorly when we were told we couldn't sit beside the window because it was a four top and we were a party of two. I would have completely understood if the restaurant was full or if it was early in the evening, but neither was the case. Just seems a little silly. We were impressed by the menu and would recommend The Burleigh based on that alone.

They closed the kitchen temporarily because they were too busy - what restaurant in a beach town can't handle a busy night? Which means my pregnant wife and I waited an hour and a half for our food (an appetizer and 3 small plates), which was disappointing to say the least. The chicken wontons were good but the poutine tasted like just cheese and potatoes (not a hint of lobster), the fish tacos were tasteless and somehow the jerk chicken wings were super bland. It's jerk seasoning, how do you possibly make it taste boring? The waiter was very nice and apologetic and the manager gave us a nice break on the bill, but it was amateur hour in the kitchen. With so many dining options in the area we're definitely skipping here next time.

I have been to the Burleigh almost every Sat. night since March. I enjoy live music, especially vocals and guitar. For the last few times, the noise level in the lounge was so loud that we could not hear the guitar and vocals. I had people from out-of-state come hear this guitarist, which they could not. The Guitarist checked the sound level so I do not think it was his fault. Not sure if this is due to the high ceilings or not. I feel the Burleigh lounge is one of relaxation, quiet conversation and nice music. This was not so for the last two times. It seemed more like a noisy bar. Please do not put this on a web-site. This feedback is for the owners only so they can make adjustments.

Burleigh is a little more casual than One Dock had been. Food was fantastic, as was service. There have been a few menu changes with the addition of a few pub type foods. Wine menu is not as expansive, but definitely adequate, and our server recommended a very nice choice for us. Music and activity in bar lounge area, as well as outside. Overall great experience, and we will return!
