The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of fresh seafood and drinks at Bartley's Dockside in Kennebunkport.
For three generations, the Bartley family has been serving a taste-bud-tempting menu of fresh seafood, succulent steaks, and farmers' market vegetables in its neighborhood eatery along the river. Begin your gastronomic safari with a glass of Cakebread wine ($12–$19) and creamy bowl of New England clam chowder ($7.95). For entrees, quell stomach uprisings with the house specialty, a déjà-vu-inducing baked lobster (market price) stuffed with 4 ounces of lobster meat, or sink a mouthful of curious chiclets into Eduardo's 10-ounce filet mignon, crowned with a lobster tail and hollandaise sauce ($29.95). Nibble a slice of Mrs. B's homemade blueberry pie ($6.95) next to the eatery's roaring fireplace and reminisce about the time you escaped the debilitating hugs of a spiritless motivational speaker.
TripAdvisors give Bartley's Dockside an average of 3.5 owl eyes. Reviews are mixed on the blueberry pie, but reviewers praise the lobster. Six Yelpers give an average of 1.5 stars, but Yahoo! Travelers give Bartley's a four-star average.
