Relaxed atmosphere, great seafood (and more) at this oceanside restaurant
Remember when dining by the water was a relaxed affair, maybe savoring a lobster roll or chowder or fried clams while the sun shone and the sea breezes wafted by? You can recapture that at the Anchorage Inn’s Sun and Surf Restaurant, where they’ve been serving up casual fare at their dramatic surfside location since 1963. Enjoy your meal on one of three outdoor patios or in their colorful dining room. Seafood’s a specialty, but you can order up everything from burgers and salads to steaks and pasta. Or, go for some extra creamy Maine-made ice cream at their takeout window. For quick snacks, light breakfasts or a cocktail, seek out the inn’s poolside cafe.
Feast on Maine lobster and don't miss the creme brulee
For distinctive dining on Maine's coast, head to Jonathan's Ogunquit. You'll enjoy casual fine dining in a contemporary lounge atmosphere with exquisite gardens and a 600-gallon aquarium. We offer a menu that will suit all, with both innovative dishes and deep-rooted local favorites. We use sustainable, local products whenever reasonably permitted. We're open for lunch Wednesday thru Sunday and for dinner every day. Do you crave something harvested from the sea?

Among our other entrees: chicken piccata, Jaerger schnitzel, wild mushroom pappardelle, and Black Angus hand-cut steak. Don’t miss our award-winning chocolate mousse or our legendary creme brulee.

Delightful dining options featuring creative cuisine, lively atmosphere, on tap at this historic inn
Start with clam chowder or Maine mussels, move along to a lobster melt or a signature burger: That’s a small part of the delightful menu at The Burleigh, the cozy gastropub at the historic Kennebunkport Inn. Creative libations (ask about the Burleigh Smash), local beers and wines and shareable small plates also contribute to the fun experience, and lively social scene, at the restaurant. New this year to the inn is Captain’s Landing, serving Maine comfort food favorites including lobster in the rough from the takeout window on the patio. Grab a picnic table to enjoy lunch or stop by for a local brew with friends in the evening. This summer, Club Cumming on the Coast, Alan Cumming’s East Village cabaret bar, also comes to the inn.
Seafood a specialty at this restaurant just a short stroll from the harbor
Because of its location in Portland’s Old Port district, which includes a working waterfront, the restaurant in the Portland Harbor Hotel has a close relationship with local fishermen. That’s great news for the lucky diners at BlueFin North Atlantic Seafood restaurant because it means the best, freshest possible seafood every day. The restaurant celebrates all that is Maine with a seasonal menu that features the sea’s bounty as well as other local ingredients. Start your dinner with a traditional-style cup of New England clam “chowdah,” then indulge in lobster ravioli, lobster scampi or go for the gold with a whole lobster complete with potatoes and corn. Dine inside in this casual, romantic space or al fresco by a fountain. Please check our COVID policies and services page before booking your stay.

Gather with your friends and family at this Kennebunkport inn’s poolside restaurant
Enjoy a light lunch or dinner overlooking a scenic tidal cove at The Dory, the on-site restaurant at The Lodge on the Cove. Grab a salad, sandwich, a super side or a sweet treat and enjoy it poolside. Or stop by the bar during happy hour Monday through Friday for $1 wings and $2 popcorn as well as creative cocktails like the Coveside Cooler or an adult slush. Non-alcoholic beverages include everything from limeade and pool punch to frosty milkshakes. The vibe is lively and friendly, making it a great gathering spot for friends and family. And because the restaurant opens onto a gated outdoor pool patio, you can keep an eye on the kids.
