131 Ocean Ave.
The Breakwater Inn & Spa
Kennebunkport, ME, 04046, United States
TEL: (207) 967-3118

The Breakwater Inn’s signature restaurant, named for striped bass, specializes in local Atlantic seafood, and offers views of the Atlantic Ocean and Kennebunk River. Signature dishes include lobster sausage with house-cured sauerkraut and roasted shallot mustard and the equivalent of lobster poutine, made with local lobster meat, Pineland Farms cheese curds, and gravy. A whole menu section honors specialties from the Gulf of Maine like saltwater poached lobster served with drawn butter. The Sunset Lounge houses an aquarium and full bar that serves a limited food menu and cocktails like the Wooden Nail, a Manhattan derivative that incorporates Drambuie and cinnamon.

Insider Tip:

Stripers closes from October through May as tourist season, and the weather, cools down. In the interim, dining options in town include Grissini Italian bistro, Mediterranean-influenced Pier 77, and the more casual Federal Jack’s brewpub.
