Great staff, very friendly. Fun seating on the water. Already limited menu and they were out of some items. Not really fine dining, more casual.

The crispy Brussel sprouts were exceptional. I was a little surprised at the menu as it was a bit sparse.

Everything was just fine, no complaints, and you certainly can’t beat the beautiful sunset over the water— almost all tables inside & out have the scene every evening, weather permitting. The fish in my fish & chips was excellent! The french fries seemed like they’d been cooked earlier and re-heated—mushy. The coleslaw was bland, but okay. All that said, we plan returning periodically throughout the year. Take-out from here was a regular event during the first round of C-19 isolation. We like Stripers!

My husband and I booked dinner with Stripers while in town for the weekend as part of an anniversary vacation. We were seated in a lovely indoor spot with floor-ceiling windows that can open up (like doors) to give us a fresh air outside-feeling experience. Lovely view of a lawn wit Adirondack chairs facing the river—great for boat and sunset watching. The menu, while small, offers a nice assortment of mostly seafood choices with a few non-seafood options. My husband order the steak, medium rare. Closer to medium but he still found it tasty. I ordered Lobster Scampi which was really tasty. A few pieces were a little tough, but generally quite good.

The only low was with my husband’s drink—he asked for an “Old Fashioned”—a classic bourbon-based drink, and he asked that it be served on the rocks (with ice). The server asked if he wanted a specific bourbon brand, to which my husband replied “Yes—if there is no sur-charge added because of it” (this has happened elsewhere, based, I guess, on the higher cost of the special brand). The server hinted that there probably would be, so hubby decided to go with the house bourbon…..Great drink…but then the bill came…..$4 added because it was served on the rocks. :(. All in all, nice place….just buyer beware……Probably the kind of thing that often happens in tourist-heavy towns.

Not as advertised! While this restaurant is on the water (river) and the view was good, it was not the high quality I had anticipated. The menu is limited and there was nothing special about the items offered. Service was good but not exceptional.

The restaurant appears to be in need of a good cleaning or remodel. Might be part of the ‘on the water’ ambiance but not appreciated by us.

Would recommend happy hour drinks on the Adirondack chairs, then dinner elsewhere.

Can’t beat the outdoor setting at sunset. Though not suggested we decided to have cocktails and appetizers on the lawn, splendid. Staff and server basically disinterested and only somewhat attentive. No one asked if we enjoyed our meal, and it wasn’t crowded. Limited food selection in appetizers & entrees.

Haddock was delicious with the risotto. Salmon was very good too and so was the steak! The only thing I could say negative was the fries were a bit soggy that came with the fish & chips. Service was fantastic too!

The food was very good. However, the service was slow, and due to limited staff, there was no lobster dinner which I had my mind set to. They also did not serve bread, so it was a mixed bag.

Was in a back room and server had to walk behind our party over and over getting to the front room. It was a little disappointing as we were there for my moms 75th. Food was good and service good; but bummed by the price for what we had. Would have gone somewhere else with better atmosphere if we knew.

Our experience was great. The drinks were excellent and the food was delicious. Our server, also bartender was very pleasant and engaging. If you are thinking Mabel’s , it’s worth walking by there and heading to Striper’s instead.

Wow! What a great find this was. Beautiful location and a bit away from the downtown and all the tourists and street traffic. Right on the water. We sat on the deck but there are also Adirondack chairs on the lawn and we will be back someday to enjoy drinks there. Yummy bunch menu and fun mimosa flavors.

Stripers was the perfect location for a day before Mother's Day brunch. The food and service was good, although the serving size of the pork carnitas tacos was skimpy. Overall, however, it was leisurely and satisfying.

We happened to encounter a beautiful evening where we were able to sit outside, savor the ocean air, and enjoy a conversation in the most delightful ambience in Kennebunkport! The service was impeccable and the snack menu was nicely varied. My only disappointment was the loudness of the music coming from the bar (I think), when we had hoped to enjoy the sounds of the ocean and boats passing by. Otherwise, it was a perfect evening. Thank you!

Small menu of over priced food that’s not that great. Waitress only came by twice. Was left waiting at the host stand for someone for 10 minutes was waiting for waitress so we could ask for the check for 15 minutes. Was seated next to a large party with small children that kept screaming. Couldn’t leave fast enough

We went for brunch so it was fairly empty since it was right when they opened. The view is so nice even though the weather was lame. Still nice to see while you’re enjoying coffee. We got the roasted pork Benedict and the Cuban sandwich. The pork on both was to dieeeee for. So so good. The spicy Mayo was also super unique and delicious. It’s a great little spot right near the water.

Horrible experience - a seafood named restaurant without seafood on the menu! Worse carrot cake - I’ve heard about saw dust - unfortunately I tasted it! Toddler screaming and screaming with no acknowledgement from the family or restaurant. Out of sight out of mind. I have been to Stripers before but this was one of my worse experiences at any restaurant!
