    This is a great authentic Maine place to get seafood that is fresh and cooked perfectly. The clam chowder is award winning and the fried seafood was light and crisp and fresh. Plenty for 2 if you order the fried seafood sampler. The sun was setting when we dined and made for some great scenery outside our window on the marsh/bay. We had to run out and take pictures. The ambiance was invitingly Maine and the service was top notch. Now we know why Roberts is so popular. Can't wait to go back on our next shopping trip.

    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!

    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.
