Kennebec Tavern and Marina was the site of a 'meeting of the minds' as we met up with innkeeper friends for a night of comraderie. The view from the dining room is fabulous and it looks as if the deck is progressing quickly. A warm summer night on the deck over the river will be the perfect setting for dinner!

We had the potato leek soup for starters and it was yum! I had the salmon special with smashed potatoes and it was done perfectly. The others in the group had the broiled haddock with fresh veggies, the pasta del mar and the sasanoa chicken. There were no leftovers to take home to the dogs!

Our waitress, Sharon, was a hoot. The drinks were done just right and all-in-all it was a wonderful night out with friends.

The Kennebec Tavern is located on Commercial Street in Bath.
