RESTAURANTS and SHOPPING FAVORITES, KENNEBUNKPORT, ME

RESTAURANTS:

There are lots and lots of great eating establishments in Kennebunkport, but we always look for the best lobster and fried clams. We like:

THE TIDES BEACH CLUB (pictured above)
great drinks, fabulous bartenders, try El Diablo, mmmm!

OCEAN
THE CLAM SHACK
and TIA’S DOCKSIDE (very good clam chowder)

But our absolute favorite is ON THE MARSH

Described as a French Bistro, this restaurant is a perfect venue for a wedding (they told us that they have already had 16 this year). One night we had a fabulous lobster dinner. Another evening we had a wine pairing dinner of 5 courses which was divine.

Here are some photos of the exterior and interior of the restaurant:

SHOPPING:

I like PINK TANGERINE (filled with great Lily Pulitzer clothes only, I bought two Lilly Pulitzer tops and a beautiful fabric necklace)), GREEN TANGERINE where I got a fabulous little short sleeved chic rain jacket, and a peach colored sweater. DOCK SQUARE CLOTHIERS, where my partner bought very comfy Tommy Bahama dockside shoes, I got a Maine sweatshirt.

For home decor the best is HURLBUTT DESIGNS. Fortunately, this year we were there for their annual tent sale and got some great buys (swivel bar stool, custom seat fabric, originally $895, on sale for $100!, some hat hooks at $5/apiece, originally $20/apiece, 2 Ralph Lauren linen animal print panels (gorgeous) for $10/each.

We also purchased (not on sale) a fabulous antique diorama of a sailboat.
