These guys took the challenge of safe dining during a pandemic to a whole different level. Their adorable fish shacks in their Kennebunk location have made the rounds on social media and in many major publications in Maine, so getting a reservation was tricky - but, you can't keep me from a good time.
When you roll up to the Kennebunk spot, it's tough to not be completely smitten. Fire pits roaring, people tucked into their respective fish shacks for an intimate meal and even amidst a pandemic, with all of the necessary distance and safety measures in place, the energy radiating off of the place made it feel like just a normal Friday night dinner reservation. The bustle of the staff and the laughter ricocheting from the fish shacks was a refreshing dose of normalcy.
I started with the Love Bird cocktail and oooo boy. It's one of those delicious cocktails that is actually pretty dangerous - it sips so smooth, so easily, so deliciously - that poof. You need another one. We ordered a smorgasborg of food - and I'm still thinking about the house sausage and bavarian pretzel sharing board.
They have recently opened their (totally gorgeous) Portland location as well. It's basically a vehicle for date nights - romantic, intimate and cocktails that *poof* disappear. And pro tip for grabbing one of their celebrated fish shacks: download the Opentable app or head directly to Opentable.com and hit "next available." And then my next pro tip: don't wait...grab the next available.
