    We ate during the second night of the 2022 Christmas Prelude season. The service was friendly but seemed a bit overextended. The food was fine but not anything special, especially when considering the price. However, the decor was incredible and definitely worth seeing. If we were to do it again, we would probably just get drinks here and call it a night.

    The first room on the right where the bar and piano was was beautiful. We were sat in there first. Then a huge drinking crowd came in and felt it was okay to put their drinks on the only high top in the room—where we were sat to have dinner. It was awful as we were surrounded by loud drunk people. The hostess moved us but the room wasn’t as pretty as the bar area so beautifully decorated. The apps and drinks were delicious but it took over 20 min to get our first drinks and the. Manager stepped in to help deliver drinks more quickly. We were grateful. The chicken pot pie was tasty but the haddock lacked flavor. I don’t know that I’d go back for dinner but it is a lovely spot to visit.

    We were there for dinner during the Christmas prelude and it was absolutely amazing. The atmosphere and the decor of the dining area was outstanding. It made for such a magical and festive feeling! Food and service was great!

    Thursday is Burger night and they were great. It was a swiss and mushroom burger, very tasty. The only negative was the service. The waiter had the whole room so not his fault, another waiter/waitress was needed. The room is very festive and warm, a good restaurant.

    There was only one waitperson on duty plus the bartender. My wife asked for a hot toddy and got just whiskey and hot water. No honey or lemon juice.

    We were skeptical after reading several negative reviews. We decided to judge for ourselves knowing how the poor of staters tend to judge our town. The service, although extremely short handed, did an excellent job! The food was great, the location is beautiful and the prices were more than fair based on the surrounding competition. The spinach salad, haddock chowder, baked haddock, burger, shrimp cocktail and chicken sandwich were all great. Our server was working the entire room alone but did it with a smile. I think visitors from out of state need to take staffing issues into account before judging service and tip accordingly. If you're in a rush, you can cook at home!

    We had happy hour appetizers at the bar which were very good. House wine not so much. We had reservations for a table afterward for my wife's birthday which was specified in advance. The staff did not acknowledge her special day, even though we ordered a dessert. It was as if "I" had forgotten her birthday. Staff could use better training as anyone in the service industry knows, it is all about the guest's experience. Ours was just o.k. We were staying at the Kennebunkport Inn which was our second time there.

    The lighting was so bright, like eating in a cafeteria. The piano player was so loud we couldn’t talk to each other. The bar tender who was lovely, seemed to be doubling as the waitress and the bartender. Food was average. Overall, we were disappointed.

    Very disappointed in this restaurant! Drinks very expensive for what you received. The waiter was new and didn’t know much about service! The food was not all all what we expected… it was very salty! I mentioned it was my birthday… but nothing was done about it… not even a small dessert! Would not recommend it!

    The environment is lovely. The pace of our meal allowed for great conversation as we caught up with old friends. Menu has good variety and offers good value. Our waiter was a very pleasant young man. We found that he was not as familiar with how some items were prepared as we expected. We realize this might be difficult given how short staffed establishments are. Our salads and soups were delicious. The flavor of the steak tips was wonderful but the meat was tough and not exactly prepared to ‘temperature’ expectations. We would dine again, just choosing different items.

    The table that we were seated at was in the bar area not the dining room. We didn’t mind because it looked very inviting and the bar was quiet. We had perused the menu online so knew pretty much what we wanted to order. The clam chowder was delicious but our entrees were just ordinary. I had a lobster roll and fries and my husband had baked haddock. We were expecting the food to match the beauty of the place but unfortunately, it did not.

    I have been loving The Burleigh and the service was terrific but the food was good but took a very long time to get our dinner served. That was unusual and may have been because we were sitting outside. We will definitely go back again.

    Took my reservation at 330 PM, we were there at 730, left at 8. No service at all. Other peoples kids crying for food and nothing was happening. Short staffed maybe, but they should have known that earlier in the day and not taken my reservation or told us when we arrived. Then I was charged $25 no show fee, which was later reversed by the reservation company. I even spoke with the manager before leaving and asking/telling her not to charge me because the waiter was a no show.
