Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Robert's Maine Grill is a family favorite. We had a wedding there and a 60th birthday party and like to go there occasionally for a nice meal. We live about 25 minutes away but do enjoy going occasionally and they are good about accomodating my food allergies."

  • "Spent the weekend in Kittery Maine and went to Robert's Maine Grill on the suggestion of the Coachman Inn and I was so impressed by the ambiance ... staff ... service ... drinks and the food!?!? If you like clams - have the steamers! I am so looking forward to going again!"

    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "The salads and entrees were very good, but the Blueberry Crumble desert was just ok and very small for $7.50. There was no bread served which was a real disappointment for a restaurant as expensive as this."

  • "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."

  • "We have dined at Robert's many times and sat at the bar, have had business meetings there as well as family events. The food is always perfect. We would highly recommend anything on the menu. 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."

My husband gets the big salad for two & puts shrimp on it . We asked for some more cheese mad crackers because we loved it and the waitress packed up some for us to take home too! Excellent food & excellent service ! We always head back to Roberts!"

  • "The oysters here are amazing and the staff is very knowledgeable about them. They are all local. They also have all local beer. I highly recommend this restaurant as it has a gorgeous view, excellent staff, local foods, and is very accommodating (we were half an hour late for our reservation). We stayed in this area for three days and ended up eating here twice. Loved it."

  • "Robert's has a great atmosphere (the physical building and design). Can be a bit loud if full. Excellent food. Some items are smaller portions, others are large. All food is good, from the marque seafood to the lobster cobb salad or even a hunk of beef. Great onion rings and mussels! Moderate-high pricing. 2 people will be at least $40, more common to be $50, before tips ... without a drink or a bunch of appetizers or add-ons. One of our "go to" nice places" to go out. Always a winner if we are hosting friends for dinner. Early closing, 9:00pm most nights."

  • "If you want good food, with good variety of both food and drink this is the place for you. With free Valet parking and a wonderful atmosphere it's a great location for an impromptu date night. I had a craving for fried clams and good beer and I got just that. The full belly clams were wonderful and the flight of Maine beers was the perfect amount. My wife had a Ginger Mint Mojito which was delicious. Her vegetable tart entre was just the right size. We sat of the heated deck. The view was great and we look forward to coming back in the fall to check out the views then too."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Roberts. The waiter was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. I had the pan seared haddock which arrived lightly dusted in flour seasoning, most and almost buttery inside served atop freshly sauteed vegetablts (they honored my request to drop potatoes) with oyster mushrooms. Wish I didnt live 2,000 miles away!"
