The Brunswick TavernThe Brunswick Tavern

American | Brunswick, Maine

For Easter brunch/dinner the omlet bar preparations were quite ample. Main courses of good potato and leek soup were accompanied with well prepared lamb and salmons, but some of the other dishes were definitely ordinary. The bean casserole was certainly mislabeled as Cassoulet and my husband found the blueberry pancakes tough. Service seemed stretched thin, since we had to wait for several items to be replenished at the table, since they had run out. Overall somewhat adequate, but certainly could stand improvement. More

Seafood | Kennebunk, Maine

The food and service was outstanding! Great value and excellent food prepared expertly. We were down stairs in Spats, although I thought we had made a reservation of Pearl. The noise was bothersome and sound deadening panels on the ceiling would probably help. The difference between 4 and 5 stars was the seating. Small hard, straight backed chairs were awkward for me--perhaps its my age. Overall, a wonderful evening. More

American | Kennebunkport, Maine

Our third dinner at the White Barn Inn in the past 30 years and, as always, it was spectacular. Of course the food, wine pairings, and service were second-to-none. However, what impressed us this time was the relative value of the meal. While the up-front fixed price menu cost ($125) may present a bit of sticker shock, when you consider that you're getting an appetizer, intermezzo (i.e. a 2nd appetizer), and main course, and dessert for a World Class dining experience it's definitely a bargain. We're already planning a return visit - and don't plan to wait another decade before we return. More

Discover Maine

There are very few regions in the U.S. like the state of Maine. The Acadian culture has produced an entirely unique food type, and nothing proves this like the local restaurant scene. With some of the freshest seafood available, Maine has become the great lobster capital of New England and America. Many of the classic locally owned establishments cook a wide selection of shellfish in various concoctions, including crab cakes and gumbos that are heavy on the cream and potatoes, bringing out comfort food at its finest for seafood lovers. Of course, there are still many national chain locations and local steakhouses, but the king of cuisine in this great state is its delectable seafood delights.
