We're heading up to Ogunquit for a few days and are looking for some great local food. We typically like to go to the local spots and try to experience the true culture rather than tourist traps. Any suggestions in or around town?

We had a good lunch at Jackie's Too. The prices were reasonable and we enjoyed our salads and sandwiches. It is located in Perkins Cove. The setting is beautiful and it is located on one end of Marginal Way. Be sure to take a walk before or after lunch and enjoy the gorgeous view.
For the high-end, try Five-O Shore Road in Ogunquit. Just down the road in Kittery, there is The Black Birch, a weird mix of really interesting food and local fishermen hanging about around 3 PM in the afternoon. And in South Berwick, try the Thistle Pig.
MC Perkins Cove is a nice one.
(But the really good food is in Portland.)
Avoid Kennebunkport, whatever you do. It is the tourist trap of tourist traps.
Thanks for the recommendations.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
