The evening started off with some issues - noisy table near by, got very busy and not enough staff, bar service was slow, food order not right - evening ended fine. We moved tables, the waiter was very apologetic about all of the issues and gave us some reduced rates based on the issues we had.
We took my mother in law out for her birthday. Had a lovely meal here. The dining room is quiet and small, menu was great - interesting options. Will definitely go back.
New Year’s Eve dinner
Service was excellent! Food was very good. We were seated in the bar area near the live musician which I first thought would be loud, but was not at all. Bo was great - husband and I had fun with the family.
As a KPort local I walk to the Burleigh and find it to be consistently good and a step up from your usual town restaurant. The menu is well executed and while not extensive I always find 3 or 4 items we enjoy. Nicely laid out dining room and a good bar area for adults. Great service too.
Very nice restaurant, loved the ambiance, but the food was just ok. Allisson’s (down the street) has better food.
We come to Kport Inn often in the Winter-love the staff and the atmosphere.
My husband and I went to The Burleigh on Sunday night. We had an awesome meal and the restaurant was beautiful. Definitely recommend.
Very disappointing. Only non-lobster seafood entree was not available. How can a Maine waterfront restaurant not have Fish? So, we chose beef alternatives. Both the steak and short ribs were fatty and greasy. Couldn’t get them to bring us a serving spoon so we could divide an appetizer. All they could come up with was a soup spoon. Appropriately, they took away our dirty forks after our appetizer course. But, they were not replaced! Only after our main courses were delivered and sitting there, were we able to get them to bring us forks. And one of us was given a salad fork with which to eat beef! This place is highly overrated. There are better alternatives in the Kennebunks.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner on a Monday night in October. Not too crowded but still busy for what used to be "off season" in Maine. This was our second visit and the food was superb both times. The gnocchi with winter squashes was especially fantastic. I wish I had a dish of that in front of me right now! The ambiance is nice year-round, with patio dining in the summer and a cozy dining room and bar that are great for guests staying at the Inn or those coming for dinner or a drink. They have some nice craft cocktails, too. Looking forward to our next visit!
Gutes Essen in sehr schöner Atmosphäre und freundlichem Service. Zu empfehlen
Presentation was beautiful. Food was great, arrived a little cool but overall excellent, server was great!
Great food. Great service. Not much more to say except, try it for yourself!
The food and ambiance were outstanding. I really enjoyed the menu selections , especially the light bites and the salads. The Kennebunkport Inn is beautiful and the outdoor seating looks inviting although we ate inside in front of the fireplace. The room we were in was very traditional and elegant.
We had cocktails and mussels during happy hour. On the porch deck. Food ambiance and service were excellent. Had a 5:15 pm reservation right after. Had the lobster risotto and my wife had the lobster roll which were both full of lobster backs and sumptuous.
I have been an Open Table member since its inception and this is the first time I’ve felt motivated to submit a truly negative review. I dined at the The Burleigh with two friends, all professional women in our 50s, on our first night in Kennebunkport. The dining room is lovely and the service was attentive. The fried Brussels sprouts were delicious and my skate wing was perfect. (For some reason, my friend’s was greasy, though she did not complain.) Although we ordered 2 appetizers and 3 entrees, plus wine, and we tipped over 20%, we were treated horribly by the manager on our way out. We were staying at The Boathouse Inn, which is only a football field away. Not knowing a storm was looming, we had strolled to dinner, sans rain gear. Just as we were departing the bistro, the skies opened. We stood at the door discussing options and decided we’d go to the bar for a nightcap to wait for the rain to subside. It was probably 9:45 and there were 4 people sitting at the bar. The manager had been eavesdropping and interrupted stating emphatically, “The bar is closed and it’s going to rain all night.” My friend replied to me, “Well, should we get an Uber?” To which the manager snidely responded, “You have to have an app for that,” as though we were too old or ignorant to know how to use Uber. Offering no solutions, he marched off. So, I cannot recommend The Burleigh. I have never been treated with such callous disregard. We will not be returning and are under no delusions that this manager cares. Fortunately, a lovely local lady, who was on her way out and facing the same predicament, had also heard our conversation. A gentleman had offered to give her a ride home and she asked him to drop us at The Boathouse on the way. So, we did not drown in the downpour or even ruin our clothes. It was such a short trip, we didn’t get their names, but I hope they know how much we appreciated their generous hospitality in assisting 3 strangers in need.
We always have a nice time at the Burleigh. The food is good, the wait staff is super nice and because it is in an inn, we always meet interesting people on vacation
Food was outstanding as usual. Service was great also
Loved The Burleigh. Settled in outside and enjoyed the lobster risotto, beet salad and wontons. Delicious!
Great food and service. My only issue was that I was expecting a more elegant ambiance and people were dressed very casual but the food and service were good.
We had dinner here last night and absolutely loved our meals. Reasonably priced, great for a date night. The service was excellent, Izaak our waiter was the best waiter we’ve ever had. Will definitely be coming back!
Food was seriously lacking. Avoid the lobster rissoto.
Outstanding meal created by a great chef. Every course was delicious. The Brussel Sprouts were amazing. My wife loved her short ribs. My pork chop dish was insanely good . The dessert was outstanding. You need to try this menu!
We had a great diner with my husband. Great and innovative food. Very good chicken ! Good wine.
We loved it! The food was exceptional. The service was warm and great. Can’t wait to go back!
Our server Sierra was great, super friendly and attentive. She kept the table neat and maintained the whole dinner. Food was tasty, burger was a little more "well" than medium but tasted like your average burger nonetheless. Mussels, wontons, brussel sprouts, and gnocchi were all super tasty appetizers to share.
Very good, but empty...
Limited menu. Sat at table with sun shining in face. No blinds. Food was just ok. Lots of French fries. Dinner plates could have used something other than all those fries. There are much better places to eat in Kennebunkport.
Very pretty place.
We had made a reservation earlier in the day, but the seating options were not great. We ended up being seated to a very large noisy party. So we rate the Hostess as just ok. Waiter was good. He explained the daily menu items and was timely.
Chicken was raw, but they adjusted.
Overall good. I think we had just some bad luck. It happens.
Our food was delicious, the atmosphere delightful.
Although there were plenty of tables and two empty dining rooms whe we arrived, we were seated next to a party of 12 with small children and seated right on top of the only other folks in the room, making conversation very difficult. It took 15 minutes for the appetizers to arrive. The Caesar salads were swimming in dressing. The hamburger was very disappointing. All in all, an unpleasant experience.
Le servie et le lieu sont très bien mais le risotto n’est vraiment pas fameux...
Everything was outstanding - food, service, atmosphere. For food I would highlight the charred asparagus salad, the rarely found skate, the lobster rissoto and the classic burger. Comfortable seating arrangements.
convenient in downtown kennebunkport. The food was very good, the decor, while fresh, was more New York clubby in style, so dies not synch with the feeling of being on the coast of Maine. Who wants to go into a dark room on a beautiful summer night in Maine?
Vacationing in the area
We have had dinner here several times. The food is always excellent, and the service is pleasant and prompt. If you are looking for a charming spot in Kennebunkport, give the Burleigh a try.
Our waiter was great, but the hostess seemed to sit us
Nice spot for drinks and bar- type foods
The music was lively but a little loud
A delightful surprise! The chef is quite adept at pairing flavors you would never think of (like blue cheese with the mussels!). He was also very willing to accommodate a few adjustments to his creations, which was amazing and greatly appreciated! We sat in the dining room, which was very tastefully and simply appointed. Our server, Isaac, was fabulous! We could hear the live musician, Beau Dalleo, performing in the bar and wound up going there after dinner. Beau is a local musician who is quite talented and deserving of recognition.
Great food, great staff.
