Stripers features local seafood on the water with a sunset view of the river and ocean, private beach, and a waterside bar. Have a drink in one of our adirondack chairs on our lawn, or come inside for a great meal, with plenty of options for those who would prefer an alternative to seafood.

Had a very nice evening at Stripers. Atmosphere and staff were excellent. Food was pretty good but not the best. But for a February evening in the port it was good. I had a Caesar salad which was ok but the croutons were stale. I had the gnocchi which was ok but not fantastic (ie I would not hurry back for). Staff couldn't have been nicer and I look forward to going back in the summer!

Excellent from start to finish. My martini, perfect. The chowder and lobster bisque as starters some of the best we've had. The lobster rolls and french fries, perfect! Save room for the blueberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream. OMG!

We plan on making our way back to Stripers very soon.

We were the only ones in the restaurant that night, but given it was a cold night in off season it was expected. We had wanted to try this place for a while and we were remembering a loved ones passing that night and she would have loved this place. The service was friendly and good. Not too attentive even with us being the only people there. The drinks tasted great, nice mixed drinks. I love trying new wine and the Chenin Blanc was fantastic. My food was very very good. The braised short rib app was delicious and tender incredible flavor. I never had smoked scallops before and they were delectable in the salad I had as an entree. My father in law had fish and chips and unfortunately thought it was quite plain. He said for a great restaurant like that he thinks they should have a signature taste to it. Maybe a better batter and the cole slaw wasnt that good. But he still loved going there He loved the bar chairs and was really happy with his whiskey sour sweet and his Smith and Kearns. He loves when bartenders can make the oldies but goodies. We cant wait to go back again this summer. It was a great dinner we had a fabulous time.

Stayed at the Breakwater Inn and Spa. Such a beautiful place. Food was excellent. Presentation, price, and menu were great. Service top notch. Very attentive. Price good for quality of food. View fantastic. Quiet, good for conversation. Went in winter so no problem getting a table! I would highly recommend Stripers.

Went with my girlfriend on a Friday night in January, not a very busy time in kennebunkport lol. We were the only ones in the restaurant but it was a very cozy, romantic spot for dinner right on the water. The food was phenomenal, the service was fantastic, they were so friendly and kind, it was our first time in kennebunkport so it was just a very nice experience. It's a great spot for dinner if you're in that area, highly recommend.

Nice restaurant in a cute little town. I’m staying in the Breakwater Inn and didn’t want to go far for dinner. My boyfriend and I shared a meal and got the pork schnitzel, which was very tasty.

We enjoyed thanksgiving dinner this year at Stripers. We had the latest seating. The menu options were great. I chose this restaurant because it included a selection on the menu that I know my husband would enjoy. He does not eat poultry or meat and most thanksgiving menus have very limited options. The service was excellent, very friendly staff. Food was excellent and plenty. It was a 3 course fixed price menu and price was very fair. The chef even prepared us each a turkey sandwich to go so we could enjoy holiday leftovers. A real unexpected treat!

Everything was extremely disappointing. We were spending Thanksgiving there and had the thanksgiving meal special at $55.00 per person.
First, a Cesar salad was served without any dressing and the onion soup barely tasted or looked anything like an onion soup.
Next, for the main course we ordered the Thanksgiving meal which included turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and Brussel sprouts with carrots. The turkey was some type of processed turkey roll, not fresh turkey meat carved from a bone!!! It was terrible! The stuffing and the mashed potatoes were ok (and the portions were overly abundant), but the Brussel sprouts were tasteless and the carrot undercooked. We both left half of our meal on our plates.
For dessert we ordered the pecan pie and Apple Crisp. The pecan pie was a small, cold piece, while the Apple Crisp looked like a plate of canned apples with a lot of oatmeal on top.
It was an outrageous cost for such a poor meal.

We were also guests at the Inn and received a complimentary breakfast, which was the usual bread assortment, except for some yogurt.

We would never go back to Stripers nor would we recommend it to anyone.
Our only compliment is that the staff were all very friendly. And it is situated on the river, with a nice view of the ocean from some, but not all, tables.

Overall an okay experience. Probably more of a summer place as the inside has no ambiance. Some dishes that were served were entirely different than what was listed on menu and there was no recognition or apology of that.

Took an hour for the apps (not crowded by any stretch) and the waitress stated that she gave one of our apps to another table but didn't bring our second app in the meantime or offer anything while we waited. Then proceeded to bring me the wrong salad which was my main course with added fish. Food was ok. I won't go back or recommend. Overall a very lackluster experience.

New to the area and decided to check them out. Made reservation for 8 pm and arrived early to have a drink or two in the bar. The bartender was inattentive, and was more interested in leaving by 9 pm then waiting on the customer she had there at 7:30. The Maitre'd came to the rescue after a 10 minute wait. Took our order and came back with our drinks in hand. He was the reason we stayed. After one drink we decided to move on to our table for dinner.

Now for dinner, I am not a professional chef nor do I claim to be, but when it comes to cooking, I do put out good food night after night, so I believe I know what it takes to put out proper food. We order the following items and were frustrated with each thing. The Crispy Brussels Sprouts, though the flavor was there they were not crispy, soggy was more like it, the Brussels Sprouts were over cooked and some were burnt. House Cured Gravlax on toast points with fried Capers here again great idea but bad execution. The toast points were not toast points but white bread pieces and the fried Capers were over done and burnt leaving a bitter taste. Ceasar Salad was bland, what more can I say. Now the Grilled Filet Medallions with Yukon Duchess Potatoes and String beams. The Medallions were spot on, tender and properly cooked but the Yukon Duchess Potatoes were made ahead and microwaved. How do I know, the out side was cool and the inside was steaming hot. The outer layer becomes tough and rubbery. The String Beans were ok though they could have been better.

The dessert was the highlight of the meal, the chocolate tart was excellent. What a beautiful place, and good atmosphere, if only they could have pull the meal together it would have been well worth it.
