    I'd been talking about having lunch at Robert's Maine Grill all week to my relatives who were also staying in the Old Orchard Beach area. Thank goodness it was as good as I remembered. It was very busy, but we were seated within 2-3 minutes of our lunch reservation time. All our meals were great as was the service. Try the turkey on walnut cranberry bread. OMG, delish. Steak tips were also very good!

    This restaurant was a great find. The outside was nicely decorated - loved the lighthouse. The inside was more than I expected. I was pleasantly surprised. This is not just a restaurant destination after outlet shopping, but a special occasion restaurant destination in itself. The service we had was spectacular. I would definitely plan my trip to Maine around a special lunch/dinner visit with the Robert's Maine Grill in mind.

    We were visiting Ogunquit and looking for some nearby restaurants that weren't too touristy. This place was great. My son had the fish and chips which were cooked to perfection. My daughter said her salmon was the best she ever had. Bottles of wine were half price. We will be back on our next visit to Maine.

    We dine at Robert's often; it's our 'go-to' restaurant because of it's menu with great choices and selections of local brews on draft. This particular visit had us dining on their upstairs deck, with a perfect summer breeze, view of the tidal creek and a close to full moon rising. It doesn't get much better than this along with their consistent service and quality of food

    They always greet you with a smile and the smile never fades! The food is very good, they are always striving to make your experience a good one. At times it may be a bit noisy because of the building......it depends on the crowd and the number of parties with children. They are most welcoming to families with children and I am delighted to see this. I am a local and it is one of my favorite spots!

    After a day shopping or if you are just in the area, Robert's is the place to eat. You would think it is a tourist trap, but it isn't. It is a place for delicious fish and seafood. The manager and the wait staff couldn't be nicer. The oysters are briny and fresh, and on Monday nights, it is buy one, get one free. The mussels in a creamy apple-bacon sauce are plump, and the fish fry is fresh. The crab cakes taste like crab as they should. The restaurant is by a river, so there is a water view from some seats. And it is a nice crowd. Go!

    I thought it was more upscale than Bob's Clam Hut but the only thing I found was that the pricing was about the same but Roberts portions were smaller and the service was very slow. It was just okay.

    You know you will enjoy a good meal at Robert's. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, attentive, not stuffy nor pushy. The decor is relaxing, lots of natural light, big food and fishery theme related pictures up on the wall. Food is well prepared. Lobster and mussels were cooked just right and generous portions served, ie not overcooked as too many restaurants do. Linguini sauce was too rich-buttery. Raspberry pie was excellent, albeit tiny portion served (but really just right after a big meal). Wine menu offers food pairing suggestions and you can order by the glass or a bottle. Price, between what you would pay at typical family restaurant chain and gourmet restaurant, is in line with the meal.

    We had the lobster dinner which was perfect and the grilled scallops which were divine. Great meal and great service. The blueberry crumble was excellent for dessert. Loved the experience, only thing to watch for is that they put too much dressing on the ceasar salad that evening, so next time we'll ask for dressing on the side.

    Stopped in for a quick bite when we lost power the other night. Found others from my town doing the same thing. Roberts was generous enough to plug in devices for guests while we dined. Food was fantastic - I had the vegetable flatbread & the vegetables were fresh & cooked to perfection. My daughter had the fish & chips & the haddock was moist & delicious. The service was prompt & friendly as usual. Roberts is a local gem & well worth stopping in. Don't let the full parking lot fool you - their parking is limited but there's always plenty of seats.

    As usual, we were very happy with Roberts. I highly recommend the citrus salad with goat cheese and raspberries. I added a side of fried clams and had a nice supper. Husband had the moxie steak tips. The service is attentive; the atmosphere is casual and comfortable, yet upscale at the same time. Just a nice place to enjoy fresh food done well.

    Greeted nicely by all. Seated promptly at reserved time. Meals were fresh and warm. We were seated upstairs towards the front of the restaurant next to a very large, boisterous party. We should have asked to be moved but didn't. I think the noise from this group diminished what could have been a better dining experience. The restaurant was able to cater to my requests of no salt on grilled salmon and dressing on the side for the lovely salad that the salmon was atop.

    The food at Robert's is great! Everyone here is wonderful, great service very friendly. My companion and I shared an order of the huge beer battered onion rings, which were good although I like a little more beer taste generally. They were served with a thick dipping sauce that had a nice little kick. We each got a lobster roll (one hot buttered and one w/ mayo) and split them. Both of which we thought were excellent. My friend also had a few oysters and the waiter was very nice and provided helpful suggestions on which oysters to get. And they didn't even bat an eye when I knocked my full glass of lemonade over (eep...). For dessert we got blueberry crumble and coconut lime cheesecake (my fav here!).

    In year's past, the menu offered Paella and it is great! When we did not see it on the menu, we asked our waitress to inquire with the chef if he could/would make it for us and the chef said yes. Not only did the chef and the kitchen come through on our Paella orders, we arrived 20 minutes early and they accommodated our early arrival. I recommend Robert's Maine Grill to everyone!

    As always, we had exceptional service and food at Robert's. The oysters were awesome!!! Unfortunately, we were there for dinner on a Saturday and the noise level from the large groups of diners around us was really high. I go to this restaurant a lot and this is the loudest I have ever heard it. I wonder if anything could be done to address this issue by the restaurant.

    Robert's has the easy atmosphere of a neighborhood seafood restaurant. Marsh views are on three sides and the interior is casually chic. Outdoors is fun but on a hot day, the A/C wins! The staff is friendly and the service is excellent. We didn't have to wait, either for our table or for our meals. The mussels are to die for, by the way - and the desserts are mouth-watering. A nice touch: You may order a "sample" size of a dessert and it's still quite big enough - The key lime was wonderful. Definitely a return visit is planned.

Also, one of our family members has celiac disease so gluten free is a must. Robert's does a great job accommodating and her GF food is fantastic too.

    I took a chance reserving a table for our wedding anniversary at a restaurant my husband had never been to. This could have been our last anniversary had it not gone so well. We went for a late lunch, early dinner. Excellent table overlooking the river, and the food could not have been much better. My husband ordered the jambalaya, LOVED it. Actually took half home. That never happens. Baked haddock was lightly crusted - not too buttery. Money well spent.

    Love the farm to table concept and use of local foods here. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and made recommendations to steer us in the direction of a good meal. Cocktails we chose were tasty but mild, in fact my husband questioned if any alcohol in his bloody mary. The Maine Lemonade was tasty and mild as well. Baked Haddock and Pan Seared Scallops were our menu choices - both deliciously prepared. Appetizer of Fried Calimari and salsa was very good. Seafood Chowder and Clam Chowders were good. Had no room for dessert. Had been wanting to try this restaurant since it opened and glad we did.
