Cape Pier Restaurant 2013 Season

If you’re tired of the cold weather, don’t worry, because things are heating up in Kennebunkport, Maine. March 29th is the day Cape Pier Restaurant opens for the 2013 season.

Imagine yourself and your loved ones enjoying delicious Maine lobster fresh from the sea in a restaurant overlooking the water. Cape Pier Restaurant makes that ideal experience come true, as you and your friends and family look out on one of New England’s most picturesque harbors. Locals and tourists alike love the experience of dining on fresh lobster and seafood at the relaxing and casual Cape Pier Restaurant.

Kennebunkport, Maine is perhaps best known to the world as the place where former President George H.W. Bush has a family compound on the water, a place where he, his wife Barbara, and various family members spend quality time. It’s fun to drive out to the coast and see the Bush compound. It’s not something you can actually visit, but you can stop along the highway and see it in the distance as it juts out into the sea on a small peninsula.

After people see the Bush compound, the next most popular thing in Kennebunkport is having a meal at Cape Pier Restaurant at 79 Pier Road on the town’s lovely waterfront. The restaurant, which is generally open from 11 a.m. in the morning ‘til “close,” whenever that may be, is an ideal place for lunch, dinner and private events.

The Cape Pier Restaurant is supplied by the Cape Porpoise Lobster Company, an in-town supplier of fresh Maine seafood. Besides lobster, you can enjoy shrimp and scallops, among other delicacies.

If the weather’s nice, enjoy a meal or lobster bake outside on the restaurant’s Chowder House deck, and if it’s chilly, stay inside and enjoy the view from Cape Pier’s large windows.

Cape Pier Restaurant’s early spring hours are 11 a.m. ‘til “Close” on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights. After May 1st, the restaurant will be open seven days a week through October 31st. Call 207-967-0123 and make your reservations today!
