Kennebec Tavern & Marina
Kick back on the Kennebec Located on the banks of the Kennebec River, the Kennebec Tavern pairs tasty seasonal fare with a front seat view of the sparkling waterfront. Centuries ago, the Abenaki gave the Kennebec River its name, which means "long level water." In the 17th century, sailors called Bath?s three-mile stretch of river the "Long Reach," as it provided deep anchorage and good landing sites, and allowed them to sail the stretch without tacking. Enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner as you watch the activity on the waterfront unfold, or entertain guests in Seguin Hall, our private function room named for Seguin Island Lighthouse, the "Guardian of the Kennebec."
Being here for a meeting I am sure is different than as an individual. However, the food they provided was not so bad. Tasty and plenty. They gave us a cookie variety platter, which were dry and some still frozen, for the tables. Staff was quickly in an out not giving us a chance to ask or say anything. I cannot give them more than a 3 and that may be pushing it. The prices were not reasonable.
My wife and i came to this resstaurant on wednesday march 17. We were Very Displeased with the food. The Service was excellent. Our Server was very friendly and proffesional. The Food on the other hand was utterly disgusting. My Ny Sirloin tasted old and had a strange odor. It was also over cooked. My wifes cobb salad had rotten wilted lettuce and he egg was undercooked. We will never be back, anyone looking for better food in bath should try maxwells. It is cheaper and the food was not rotten.
On a clear, cold winter's Saturday night -- what a view and the food was wonderful. We had the special which was a pasta dish with scallops, shrimp and crabmeat with a wonderful sauce of fresh tomatoes and garlic and a touch of cream. We also enjoyed the chowder and lobster stew. We will go back!! The best part was it was easy to get into on a Saturday night as it is off the beaten track. Oh! and the prices are reasonable.
This is a shame because the location is great! In the summer it is a great place to sit out on the deck and have drinks but stay away from the food. Appetizers are okay but uninventive. Pasta dishes and entrees also lack imagination and are bland. I have eaten here several times, each time hoping it would get better but it doesn't. A little creativity, fresh herbs and spices would go a long way in this kitchen and would help to justify the prices.
