The world’s best lobster comes from Maine, but it’s even better when enjoyed in Maine! Choose from all kinds of ways to eat lobster while visiting, at a seaside lobster bake, a casual eatery or a fine dining restaurant. You’re not limited to lobster, however, when eating in the Kennebunks. There are countless top Kennebunkport restaurants serving up delicious meals. Some of our favorites are listed below.

Located in the heart of Kennebunkport’s Dock Square, Alisson’s has been a local family-owned favorite since 1973. Alisson’s offers top quality fresh seafood, award-winning chowder and lobster rolls, and legendary service. If you’re favorite team is playing while you’re visiting the area, you can catch the game on their big screen TVs in the pub while savoring one of the many Maine craft beers on tap.
