"Never Disappoints!! We visit this restaurant several times seasonally while in Maine and it never disappoints!!
We usually go early so we avoid a wait. We were seated right away and ordered drinks which were excellent. We skipped the appetizer as we have learned that we can never finish our meal if we eat an appetizer also. We suggest either an app and a salad or a salad and entree. My husband had the spinach salad and short ribs and loved both. I had the nightly special salad and pecan crusted cod which was so moist and delicious!! I ordered the roasted brussel sprouts as my side and would definitely get them again!!! Once again, this is great food and friendly service. If I had to name one negative it would be the sound when the restaurant is full -- but it's still worth it!!!" - Hanks

"A MEAL TO SAVOR This was a second visit to this fantastic restaurant. We have been living in Florida and were seeing friends who asked where we most wanted to go...the very quick answer was The Village Tavern. The restaurant lived up to very high expectations from our last visit. The server Tye was delightful and attentive. Be sure to order the crab cakes, crispy outside filled with luscious crabmeat. Our Cesar salad was delicately dressed. The atmosphere is beautiful and open with art gracing the walls" - Kathy

"Had a lovely dinner Saturday night with my husband and father in law. The restaurant is very cozy and we were greeted with a smile upon arrival. We were given the option of 2 tables and my husband chose one right by the kitchen window. Great choice! Watching the chefs put together dishes was amazing to watch. My husband ordered the lamb, me and my father in law ordered the short ribs all with crispy potato pancakes on the side. Everything was perfectly  cooked and delicious. The short ribs were so tender they literally fell off the bone. The potato pancakes came with a chive creme fraiche that was to die for. The service was excellent, food was fantastic. - Jo

"Another fantastic meal! We enjoy everything we've had at The Tavern, the short ribs and the pecan haddock are to die for! A Kennebunk gold mine already looking forward to our next visit!" - Meg

I have tried most everthing on the menu and have never been disappointed. DELICIOUS!! The Mussels and the brussel sprouts are amazing. Actually, so is the lamb shank, the short ribs, the seared tuna, the filet, the haddock, the pot roast, and even the burgers. Enjoy!!! I go back every chance I can." - Karen
