Moderately priced anniversary dinner for parents - help!?

I am looking for a celebratory dinner for my parents' anniversary in the Kennebunk area.
They don't like anything overly fussed-over, nor do they like spicy/ethnic food. Basically we need nice, sophisticated, reliable American fare in a comfortable setting--not five-star dining, but something a bit more "special" than a seafood shack. So not Flo's, yet also not the White Barn Inn.
Any ideas? Thanks!

The White Barn Inn
37 Beach Avenue, Kennebunk Beach, ME 04043

  1. Consider Hurricane in Dock Square, K-port. Not formal but "upscale" enough to feel celebratory.

    1. Pier 77 restaurant would be a good choice, either the dining room or the more casual Ramp Bar n Grill. Menus for both are on their website.


      1. The Steakhouse on Route 1 in Wells is terrific. Also I agree with the Pier 77 recommendation. or maybe the dining room at the Kennebunk Inn, though that might be a little too fussy.
