The Boathouse

Serving Lunch + Dinner Daily

The Boathouse is a waterfront hotel and restaurant located on the banks of the Kennebunk River.  Surrounded by working marinas, The Boathouse epitomizes its chic, coastal locale in Kennebunkport: The newly designed space is bright and sunny with nautical influences. Splashes of red & golden yellow create a welcoming and energetic space, making it the place to be seen in KPT all year long.

Chef John Shaw’s “classic Maine” menu focuses on fresh seafood with a sprinkling of Asian influences with a full Lobster Bar serving Maine oysters, Little Neck clams, and scallop crudo.  Featuring two bars serving creative craft cocktails and outdoor dining on a wrap-around deck, The Boathouse will quickly become a favorite of locals and guests alike.

Dining is on a first come basis, we do not currently accept reservations. Parties of 15 or more require a set menu, please contact for more information.
