    I believe the prices were high compared to the portions provided. Food was good but everything was ala carte. The salad was extra and the dessert was good but $6.95 for all desserts was over priced for the slice if cake that was delivered to the table. I do not believe I can recommend this restaurant to others even though the food itself was good. The noise level did not allow for easy conversation either, and the restaurant was not even full.

    Every time my wife and I travel to Kittery, we make it a point to have lunch at Robert's, and we have never been disappointed. The oysters are fantastic (we ordered the baker's dozen, but got 15!) My wife enjoyed an all natural burger, and I indulged in the jumbo lobster roll. The best part of our meal, however was the onion rings....unbelieveable! They are soo adictive...The only disappointing part is that we live in RI, and don't get to Kittery to eat at Robert's more than a few times a year...oh, well. If you're in Kittery, eat at Robert's..you won't be disappointed

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Absolutely the best restaurant we go to for seafood. The mussels are fantastic and any fish dish we have ordered has always been outstanding. They strike a great balance between innovative food that doesn't go over the top and take away from the actual flavors of fish. Their fried food is incredible. How they get the flavor right with the batter and fish while not being greasy is perfection. I cannot get enough of the onion rings served with a house sauce that I crave. It takes us 45 minutes to get there, but worth it every time.

    Roberts has great food and a very friendly staff. We've been going there since they opened and have never been disappointed. There is only a couple dining choices in Kittery without having to travel to Portsmouth. One thing I didn't mention is that the drinks are very good, the bartender puts together creative specials, which are not overly sweet.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/15/2011
    We went to the Tues night special dinner. The 3 course meal was outstandng. You can eat all 3 courses and still be part of the "clean plate club". This is the 5th or 6th time we've taken in the Tues night specials and there have been no regrets. The noise level however, is a bit high and makes conversation a little troublesome. We sat at a table for 5 in the corner and we were all leaning forward trying to hear each other speak. The conversation made its way around the table via a relay system. As the restaurant emptied the noise level did drop some. Waitress was very attentive and the cost of the meal was very very good for what you got. I highly recommend.I might add that they are proud members of the Green Alliance and Buy Local.

    This was the second time that we have gone to Robert's. Our first experience was really amazing and the food was amazing. This second time around our experience wasn't as good, the service was very slow, the food came out somewhat warm, and our waiter got our order wrong the first time around. Even though that was the case this last time, we still would go back. I would say it was more than likely do to the high volume of people dinning that night *Valentine weekend/ Saturday night* The parking can be a little tight and hard to find space, but the views and the charm of Robert's makes it worth it.

    After two wonderful visits we were looking forward to another special night at Roberts, it was a dissapointing evening. We started with drinks and the waitress took my wine order, even explained the unique local Maine wine, but did not ask my husband what he would like. After she brought my wine (which was lovely). She began to leave when we had to grab her to give her his order and our starter order, when the starter, delicious steamers, was delivered my husband still did not have his drink! The food deliverer seemed irritated when we asked if they knew when he would get his drink, which we finally got 45 minutes after it eas ordered. Food was wonderful, a little cold as was the service, not the best value for a $120 evening.

    We had a fantastic meal on a busy New Year's Day. The garlicky kale soup was unique and delicious. The clam chowder was rich, thick and creamy. The lobster bruschetta app was delicious and HUGE-glad I ordered it as my meal! Other entrees enjoyed were the swordfish special with capers, the iceberg wedge and although I can't recall what my husband ordered, I do know that it was delicious. The bite sized gluten free coconut lime cheesecake was delicious (but bigger than bite sized!) and it was served with fresh cream. The special chocolate bundt cake was served with ice cream and fresh cream and included nutmeg and ginger. My son's bite sized brownie sundae was gone before I could ask if it was good. EVERYTHING was GREAT- even coffee!

    Food was cooked perfectly. Wife had haddock picatta and Kale soup. Excellent! I had crab cakes, clam chowder and a large lobster roll with sweet potato fries. Best chowder and lobster roll I've ever had, and being a 39 year old NewEnglander I've had quite a few. The oversized hotdog roll tasted homemade (tasted like brioche?). The best part of our experience however was the service. From reception to the server it was great. I believe our servers name was Hugo. He was professional and attentive, but not intrusive. We will be back. By the way it was very easy booking a reservation through OpenTable.
