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.

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!

I may be biased but I'm always looking for Comfort food in a nicer establishment.
You'll find this to be the case, where you can get a fancy dish or a burger.

I stayed at the Kennebunkport Inn and ate at the Burleigh twice. The first night I had the Baby Arugula Salad and the Maine Mussels. Both were delicious! The second time I ate there with my granddaughter. She had the Baby Arugula Salad and the Fish Tacos. She said both were outstanding. I had the Caesar Salad and the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Both were outstanding.
Our wait staff both nights were very attentive and excellent servers. I believe if the Chef here has not been nominated for The James Beard Award, he should be!! You will not be disappointed!

There wasn't very many people there and we were seated in a back room that was quite warm. The first couple of weeks they were open was amazing. We went this past month and the service was just so so. I am hopeful it will improve.

Situated in the Kennebunkport Inn the Burleigh is very well located on Main Street in town. The decor in this historic Inn is current and sophisticated with options for seating in the charming dining room, cozy and cool bar or spacious outdoor patio over looking the cove in town. The menu has something for everyone, all the food we ordered was well prepared. Loved the brussel sprout side, easily shareable, of ample proportions. The staff could not have been more efficient and accommodating rounding out our experience of a lovely evening on the bustling busy July 4th weekend.

Wonderful spot for indoor and outdoor dining. The back deck was perfect for casual outdoor dinner, but the indoor and bar areas are lovely, intimate, and stylish. Was a very pleasant surprise, as we were expecting quaint and traditional decor, but inside was gorgeous and modern. A fantastic bar indoors; if I was a local, I'd likely be a regular. The nicest touch - it was a bit chilly, and the restaurant brought out fleece blankets for everyone - unsolicited. Food was very good - a nice respite from the resorts, overpriced and mediocre food found in many of the local restaurants.

Waiter was inexperienced -- didn't know correct number of steamed clams in an order ( said there were 14- there were only 8), did not serve the clams or mussels with a seafood fork, promised extra bread which came at end after a reminder, took 3 reminders for extra ice, didn't refill water glasses, Caesar salad at room temp but chilled. The waiter needed more training or supervision.

We were thrilled with the Burleigh. The atmosphere was warm, inviting and intimate. Our cocktails were creative and delicious. "The Perkins" was a favorite. We asked our waiter about the origins on the name, as we had just read some history about John Perkins. Though he didn't know right away, he was genuinely excited to find out and came back with some interesting and fun anecdotes that we will always remember. Though food and drink were wonderful (drunken clams were outstanding!) it was service that really won us over. I believe our server was Kiernan - highly recommended that you try and get one of his tables!

The combination of chefs from Big Fish and Oceans is is a winner! The food was great - they have brought back One Dock's famous blue cheese mussels and made them even better. The after-dinner music in the bar was a real plus - we had a great evening.

Our waiter, Kiernan, was wonderful... informative, helpful, willing to please. Hats off to the chef, whose preperations were outstanding. The manager, however, was filled with self-importance and attitude.

If you visit Burleigh's, go for the great food and fantastic service, but do NOT expect to be a valued customer by the management. Our unfortunate experience precludes our return anytime soon!

We tried the Burleigh after learning about the change in ownership. The menu is somewhat limited and seems more of a lunch menu with lots of sandwiches.

I'm sure it will evolve as the business develops. The drinks were good and the service was great.

4 course New Year's Eve menu had something for everyone! Presentation and service were well above average with standout being the lobster in puff pastry! My only complaint was the banquette seating, not a fan as you feel like your dining with the patrons at the next table. When having an upscale meal, privacy is expected. Overall a nice dining experience as the food always wins!

We celebrated NYE at One Dock and were excited about the fixed price menu that we had seen online in advance of our reservation. We had an early 6pm reservation, so the place was pretty quiet. We were seated in the dining room near the bar area per our request as we wanted to listen to the entertainment. However, we were near the front door and every time the door opened we were hit with a blast of very cold air. It's a shame they don't have a way to enclose the dining room to protect diners from the cold. I started with the crab cakes, but was disappointed as they were very salty and had a bit of fishy (rather than fresh) taste to them. My husband's foie gras with quail, however, was very good. For the next course, I had the beets with goat cheese, which was very flavorful and beautifully presented. My husband had the caesar, which was pretty basic - nothing special. For our main course, I had the lobster in sherry cream sauce over pastry and my husband had the duck. The lobster and the cream sauce were delicious, but the pastry felt like an after thought - it was very chewy and didn't really add to the dish. My husband's duck was a disappointment. He said the flavors weren't that great and it seemed to get oily as it sat while he ate. The desserts were also mixed. I had the lemon creme brulee and was expecting a smooth, silky creme, but instead found a coarse lemon pudding. It wasn't that interesting and I didn't finish it. My husband got the bread pudding, and while it was tasty, it seemed more cake-like. Overall, I would have expected much higher quality and consistency throughout for a $97pp menu.

Our mistake - we dined here on Dec. 26th and the staff numbered 2 ! One Dock should not take a reservation when they cannot accommodate the diners. After a wait of 25 minutes we were finally offered menus and placed our drink orders. That being said once the kitchen got out orders were were served on a timely basis. Nice colorful ambiance and our meal was quite good.

The food and the service was excellent.
We did not realize the menu for Prelude Weekend was prix fixe, but that was not the issue!
The dining room is open to the bar area and the very loud live music and very loud bar crowd made conversation at the dinner table virtually impossible! We were a party of four and we had to yell at each other to be heard!
When dinner for 4 costs more than $400, that is unacceptable!
The chef needs to push for improvements that would make his/her fine cuisine be enjoyed in a fine dining atmosphere, not a noisy club scene!

The food was okay ... a little bland. Service a little slow. There was a fixed menu due to Prelude, and I thought it was fairly pricy at $75 per person. If the food and service were excellent, price would have been fine. Tables were also very close together.

My husband and I live in town and go to One Dock quite often. So we made reservations for our friends who were visiting for Prelude weekend to have dinner expecting a similar experience. We were unpleasantly surprised when the only menu they had was a price fixed menu for a three course dinner at $75.00 / person. While the food was very good, it was not at all worth that money - in fact, it probably should have been priced $20-$25 less expensive per person for what was offered on the menu. I was disappointed that there was no communication about their very drastic change in menu for this weekend.

My husband & I thoroughly enjoy our dining experiences at One Dock!! The food and cocktails are top notch!! The only problem we've ever experienced has been with the temperature especially in the wintertime. If you happen to be seated in bar area by front door you will definitely freeze because most people coming in through front door don't bother to close the door. Very puzzling and annoying for your diners!

WE truly enjoyed last Saturday nights dinner and even had my picture taken with a chef I revere ....Chef David Turin. So cool!!

Server did not come to table to inquire how everything was or we would have told her how inedible the "steak Au poivre" was and that the replacement French dip which arrived with the non-requested optional cheese was well done when we asked for medium rare. Too expensive for poor food and poor service.

Food was excellent. We both had beef dishes and they were very tasty. The only downer was the service. Our server started out attentive but there was only one other party in the restaurant. As more tables filled up, the service slowed noticeably. There was still only one server for all the tables and the delay to clear the table after the main course was way too long. Nice, friendly guy but got behind the power curve.
Would try it again.

We went for the first time. The food was very good. Full of great flavor! Our waitress was very good as well. She was really knowledgeable and made good recommendations. We shared so we could try more choices. We sat next to the fireplace which was nice too. We ordered a filet and wanted it cooked medium rare which the chef did with perfection. It was a delicious dinner and enjoyable time. We did not feel rushed. We recommend this place and will definitely go back again. It is worth the drive if your not local. The prices are a bit high but the quality of the food is worth it.
