Dining in Kennebunkport

Exceptional dining options in all seasons. Extraordinary cuisine, creative libations, an energetic social scene – all are part of the KPT culture. Our little corner of the coast may seem mellow, but when it comes to great food and vibrant scene, Kennebunkport’s diverse selection of restaurants put us on the map!

Looking for something special? Although our on-site restaurant The Burleigh is currently closed, our staff is happy to provide recommendations on Kennebunkport restaurants. Just ask!

Winter Gondolas & Igloos

This year, the driveway, patio and deck surrounding Dock Square’s most historic hotel are being transformed into “Christmas Lane”! There’ll be fun activities, socially distant cocktails and private dining options to make your spirits bright! On the front terrace, enjoy three cozy igloos, firepits, and curling; plus, a trio of custom-built red gondolas on the deck.  Delight in a menu of winter-inspired snacks & sweets, cool cocktails, and hot cocoa when you reserve any of the private dining spaces. Or, gather a few close friends and learn the sport of Curling ($25 per hour).
