    Don't let the location fool you;this place is not a tourist trap but in fact a local gem. Oysters are fresh and delicious. Lobster rolls, clam chowder and bloody Marys are out of this world. Have been 8 times now, we often drive up from CT for shopping and Robert's.

  • BEST OYSTER BAR IN MAINE

    If you love fresh, local oysters, then look no further. Roberts usually carries 5-8 types, all with an interesting story. Service is quick, but a little casual if you are looking for a special occasion. Other raw bar items are also excellent with top notch cocktail, horsearaddish and migionette sauces. We have tried many of the hot apps, which are all good, as is the chowder. Lobster Mac and Cheese was dry, but loaded with lobster. Wines and cockatils are very reasonable, which specials all of the time. We live about 25 miles away, but this place is worth the drive.

    A repeat visit, this is a great venue for a family treat. There was a busy atmosphere and it took slightly too long for us to order and then receive our food, but luckily we were not in a huge rush. An added bonus was that on Sunday nights the wine is half price, if ordered by the bottle. So we took advantage and ordered a bottle of champagne, at $30, this was probably cheaper than you pay in a store. The kids enjoyed their menu. The fish chowder was a hit. My haddock was a bit bland - with cauliflower and rice my plate was too white! The veggie burger was tasty. And all in all this is a good, albeit on the pricey side, place to seek out every so often.

    You don't expect a restaurant right on the outlet mall strip to have great food - but Robert's does. We were a party of six and each one of us raved about the food. One said that the mussels were the best he had ever had anywhere. Our waitress, Megan, was terrific - when my husband and I decided to split a salad - she did it in the kitchen for us - we didn't have to make a mess at the table. My only, small, negative was the Haddock Reuben didn't have any taste (although the fish was lovely) so I asked for some tartar sauce and that fixed that problem. The light rye bread was fantastic, grilled just the way I like it. You will really enjoy a meal here - ask for a window table for a beautiful water view.

    We have always been a fan of Bob's Clam Hut and were looking for finer fare for a special occasion. We enjoyed our dinner at Robert's so much, we went back a second time on our 4-day stay in southern Maine. Excellent food, excellent service. A bit pricey, but top quality all around.

    When our favorite lobster place in Perkins Cove had a 45 minute wait we decided to check out Open Table and I am happy we did. We passed by Roberts regularly and dismissed it as a 'mall' restaurant due to it's location. It's not. The food (including our lobsters) was excellent, as was the service and the atmosphere is great too. A touch pricey but not out of line for the quality. Eco-friendly policies and local sourcing is also nice. Highly recommend.

    We were a group of 8 and this included my elderly parents who found the background noise level from the upstairs dining room to be too high. So this definitely spoiled our overall experience. I felt the food and service were good and that I'd like to go back for a second try.

    Second time here in a month, the food is outstanding, service impeccable. Can't say enough about this place. First time here I had the Halibut special, I was hoping they would have it again, they did not, so I had the Salmon which was fantastic. I will be heading here again within the next few weeks.

    The on line reservation system is well thought out and more establishments should use a system like yours. The food offerings were just what we were looking for, quality comfort food with a great extra with the raw bar offerings. Toped of with a wide awake and responsive wait person, the four of us will surly return soon. Thank you all for a great dinning experience.

    While vacationing nearby, we searched Yelp for local lobster and steamers so we tried Robert's because of the high rating. The atmosphere is welcoming, the service is good and the food is tasty albeit slightly high for the area. $28 for a medium sized hot buttered fresh lobster roll with large chunks and a cup of clam chowder is a bit stiff considering I got 2 full medium sized lobsters at Markey's and Brown's for a few bucks less than that at market price during the same trip. I guess you're paying for the nice atmosphere vs. the mom and pop shack feel of the other places. All in all a good experience, but I still prefer the better market prices and more casual atmosphere at Markey's and Brown's though.

    My husband and I enjoy going to Robert's for dinner occasionally. Dinner this evening was excellent - I had the basic staple, Baked Haddock, and my husband had the moxie tips. We went on a Sunday evening, when wine bottles are 1/2 price - an excellent deal. Food and wine pricing is pretty high for what you get, so value is not great despite the quality of the food.

    Wonderful food, balanced and not overly spiced (as is the habit among some restaurants), cooked to perfection ( I had the grilled scallops with vegetables). My server was pleasant, relaxed and perfectly attentive. The Maine blueberry crumble pie is a taste of home. Truly among the best restaurant experiences I've ever had.

    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.

    Though I have traveled by this restaurant for yrs it was only because it had been mentioned by a few friends recently, that it chose it to meet with a friend for lunch. It was the perfect place for this. We ate on the deck/porch which was very nice, although got a little breezy and curtains were lowered. Imagine it must be lovely in the summer. Food was good, although I only had clam chowder, my friend had a lobster roll with butter and it was very good with large pieces of lobster. Good wine list, a little pricey. Would come again

    Somehow amongst all the cheesy outlet stores in Kittery, there is this excellent restaurant. Were it not for Yelp I never would have tried it. I went there with a party of 6 the other night and Diana was our server. She is a pro: She knows the menu, she knows how to make each person feel taken care of, and she is delightful. We had lobster rolls, kale soup, jambalaya, flatbread and more. All really good. We liked it so much that we went back the night after with an even larger party. Different server but again we had a great meal, this time taking advantage of the BOGO oyster night. Wonderful and very fresh oysters!
