Academe at The Kennebunk Inn

Academe at The Kennebunk Inn showcases the culinary creativity and execution of Chef-owners and Culinary Institute of America graduates, Brian and Shanna O'Hea. This year Academe's Lobster Pot Pie was featured on the Food Network show "Best Thing I Ever Ate," nominated by celebrity chef Cat Cora. Since acquiring the historic inn located in the heart of Kennebunk village in 2003, the O'Heas have dramatically altered the look, the feel and, most importantly, the tastes awaiting patrons of The Inn's restaurant. From first course options to entree and dessert offerings, Academe promises an uncommon yet accessible dining experience drawn from the seasonal bounty of the land and sea.

"The Kennebunk Inn is an historic building with a lot of charm & is quintessentially New England but the dining room does not reflect that at all. It would be nice if the owners could honor the buildings architecture & charm. Take out the green carpet & bring back the hard wood. The wall color was the hue of lime sherbet and the chairs/tables, nic nacs & drapery looked like something from the 80's. The food was very tasty & the staff was extremely nice."

"Christmas Eve is very meaningful to us, so we like to dine at a special place. Our dinners were excellent, well prepared and served. The O'Hea's are to be commended for their menu and the consistency of their food and service. Both of our meals were delicious, the swordfish and the chicken breast. Can't wait for our next dinner there!"

"Great atmosphere, enthusiastic and amiable service, steaks done to perfection, salads fresh and dressings delicious. Sides a bit uncreative and overall I thought the menu a bit overpriced. Have had better meals locally for less but have certainly paid more for much less quality. Would recommend to friends for a romantic evening out."

"Our party of three was there for dinner on October 17th. The restaurant is the main dining room in the Kennebunk Inn. The dining room was pleasant, though simply decorated. Two of our party had the Lobster Pot Pie, the restaurant's signature dish. We both found it a little disappointing in size and taste. We did appreciate the opportunity to have a half-portion salad and smaller sized dessert as well. The salad of baby spinach, dried cranberries, goat cheese, and crushed nuts was excellent as was the hot fudge made with caramel ice cream. Would we return? Yes, we would but with another choice of entree."

"The food at Academe was very good. I had the crab ravioli, and my husband had the surf and turf. My biggest problem was that the restaurant was very warm inside, to the point where I had to step outside at the end of the meal while my husband got the check. The food was good, but it's an old building that I would not recommend going to during a heat wave."

"The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. We could talk without raising our voices and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The lobster pot pie and crab ravioli were great!"

"Although perhaps less noticeable than other restaurants in the Kennebunk-Kennebunkport area, don't overlook Academe at the Kennebunk Inn for a great meal and enjoyable surroundings. The menu has something for everyone, with interesting combinations and wonderful wine pairings. And our waiter was a hoot!"

"Went for the first time for a quiet birthday dinner. Food was very good and creative approach. Our server, Charlie , was excellent! We did not have the signature dish, lobster pie, but we will definitely go back to try that and more!! Quiet atmosphere with tables very well spaced."
