Nestled into a cozy corner of what was once the “fine and modern mansion” commissioned in 1899 by a wealthy coffee and tea merchant named Burleigh S. Thompson, The Burleigh restaurant is the social center of The Kennebunkport Inn. While Mr. Thompson preferred to limit this charming space to invited guests only, The Burleigh is now a lively gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
Come in out of the cold and enjoy creative cuisine from Executive Chef Eric Murdough and hand crafted cocktails fit for Burleigh Thompson himself with all the signature hospitality of one of Kennebunkport’s finest historic inns. Located just steps from Dock Square, The Burleigh is as convenient as it is comfortable.
Guests Love: The casual yet sophisticated vibe, central location, and exciting new menu items at the newest Kennebunkport restaurant.
Fan Favorite: Poached with lemon better, the Lobster Risotto is a flavor experience you’ll return for all year long.
Beer Buzz: Local craft beers are hand selected to pair perfectly with seasonal menu items.
The Kennebunkport Inn has long been a favored destination for locals and travelers exploring the Kennebunks. With its casually hip ambience, expansive bar, spacious outdoor deck, and cozy fireplace, The Burleigh is one of Kennebunkport’s premier nightspots and the home of many creative cocktails.
