Summer in Maine, while fleeting, is in full throttle in Kennebunkport. Spend your stay at the Captain Fairfield Inn sun-side noshing at a sidewalk table, deck, or patio. Our bustling (and sometimes bursting) village is full of opportunities to drink and dine al fresco, explore some of our favorite picks after relaxing in our courtyard with a glass of wine.
Make a smooth transition from day into night in the courtyard at Old Vines Wine Bar. Take the edge off with your vintage of choice and selections from the extensive charcuterie bar and cheese offerings, and settle in for a relaxing evening under the stars by the roaring fire pit. 173 Port Road, Kennebunk
For a more colorful experience, mosey a few doors down to Pedro’s for a New Englander’s take on classic Mexican food. The burritos and tequila are bountiful and the atmosphere is always festive. Family-style seating on the adjacent deck makes for lively and free flowing conversation. 181 Port Road, Kennebunk
The Irish spirit is alive and well in Kennebunkport. The proprietors of Ryan’s Corner House were pub owners in Ireland before opening the doors on this southern Maine outpost. This intimate, no frills bar combines traditional pub grub with more sophisticated takes on Irish cuisine, all of which can be enjoyed with a pint on the patio under twinkling white lights. 17 Western Avenue, Kennebunk
