The Boathouse Restaurant

Serving Lunch + Dinner Daily

When you’re craving delicious cuisine at a Kennebunkport restaurant with a view of the water, The Boathouse Waterfront Restaurant is where you need to be. During the summer, our massive deck overlooking the Kennebunk River is a relaxing spot for lunch, dinner or drinks. Our expansive dining room has low-top and high-top table options as well as two bars for meeting up with old friends and making new ones.

Chef John Shaw has created a tempting menu of “classic Maine” favorites like New England clam chowder, lobster rolls and baked haddock plus Asian-inspired dishes including sweet and sour pork ribs, tuna poke bowl and Thai steak and noodle salad. For lighter fare, we offer sandwiches, burgers and snacks for sharing plus satisfying entrées like grilled salmon, pan seared halibut and grilled ribeye. At The Boathouse, there’s something for even your toughest to please friends or family members in a waterfront location everyone will love.
