Awesome Server; very attentive and funny, too. Salmon on my salad was ordered medium; was slightly overdone - but still tasty. Ambiance is a little loud; but I expect that and it is fine. My go to place in the area; looking forward to next time.

Crab and Avocado sandwich was very good, as always.
Burgers were good. Breading way too heavy on the Fish-Fish and chip dish. Would not order the fish and chips again.

Service was great!!

This is a perfect case of mixed feelings. The food was fantastic. The service was unacceptable. Unfortunately after 3 visits, I have come away with the same experience; great food, poor SERVICE. Consequently, we always struggle with whether to go to this restaurant. And one occasion we had to get up and get our own water. On that same occasion the server wasn't even listening as one of our guests were speaking with her. She just walked away mid-sentence. It seems like Roberts can't get the service part to there great food right. Therefore we will visit sparingly if at all. I hope your experience is better than the ones we have had.

The raw oyster assortment included 13 varieties from the area. Excellent descriptions and delicious. The stuffed lobster was tasty with scallops, shrimp, and haddock served with a grilled ear of corn and drawn butter. There was no bread or other item to distract you from the main event. The baked haddock was scrumptious. The beer flight featured 8 micro brews in roughly 4 oz. pours. All you want iced tea. Total with tip was well under $150. Very pleased.

We are regulars- we eat here at least twice a month. Definitely one of our faves. That said- a little candid feedback.
- Teach your host team to be welcoming. Also- you have OpenTable- use it to its full potential by recognizing your regulars. Reward loyalty with some basic recognition. OT has that capability.
- For goodness sake- please get a shucker who can open oysters without scrambling them! You have beautiful protect and they are consistently ruined by your shucker.

Our server was wonderful. Maureen is a gem.

Food is getting more consistent again after many meals that varied wildly. Scallops were particularly good.

This was our second visit in three days. We loved the menu. Our waitress on Sunday, Maureen, was outstanding. She was very personable and very attentive. We shared the fried brussels sprouts; they were great -- not deep fried. I had the salmon special (blackened) atop asparagus & rice pilaf -- excellent, cooked just right. My husband had the baked haddock -- very flavorful. I had a bite of carrot cake, and he had a bite of blueberry crumble. Everything was so good that we went back on Wed. night. Maureen was serving other tables, but we had Sandra, who was also excellent. She answered our questions and explained the community supper. We decided to eat a little lighter so we skipped the appetizer. I had the baked haddock that my husband had on the previous visit -- so tasty. He had the Community Supper for $16, which consisted of a salad, chicken marsala with stringbeans and mashed potatoes, and dessert of black & white cake. His dinner was excellent too. I had two bites of his dessert, and it was out of this world. We will definitely return when we are in the area. We were exploring the area and leaf peeping.

We met friends for lunch. Roberts was quite busy yet we were seated on time. Staff was extremely friendly and efficient. Our server was top notch. Salads were fresh and appealing. Bloody Marys were excellent. Just the right amount of “zip”, although we could have done with a few less accoutrements on top. Our meals were prepared to our liking and were tasty. Only thing I would critique would be too heavy handed with the mayo on the slaw. We had a great time, didn’t feel rushed and enjoyed our lunch with friends.

Last time my wife and I were on the coast in New England, she was unable to eat shellfish through the entire fortnight holiday although she adores it. So, 25 years later, after a 3000 mile flight and, in a break in a five hour drive on the way back to the airport at the end of another holiday, she finally got to have that New England shellfish lunch and, boy, did she enjoy it! Tasty food, good wine, enthusiastic staff, vibrant restaurant even on a wet Monday - it couldn’t have been better. Thank you Robert’s Maine Grill - I hope it isn’t another 25 years till we’re back!

We were a party of 4. Salmon, Lobster roll, fish and chips along with fried clam plate, plus 6 oysters. Everything was great with the exception the wait staff did not follow-through with condiments and they were slow. I think under staffed. Very clean. Very few children.

I would definitely go again. Good selection of local beers. Good parking. Heavy tourist area so reservations are suggested.

First we left a review on the table card, asking where were the rasberry and blueberry pie deserts. Then we had the chocolate cream pie. Forget the rasberry and blueberry pies the chocolate cream pie is 10 times better. The waitrees was Brandie she was excellent. The dinner was great for both of us. Thank You see you again.

First time visiting for our anniversary now that the tourist season is quieting down. Cocktail shrimp was huge and snappy and highly recommend. Hubby had filet mignon and seared scallops and said they were very good. Haddock chowder is delicious. Fried calamari was good with a spicy relish. I had fish tacos and was disappointed at the lack of fish. Seemed like I was eating veggy tacos with a smidgen of fish. Prices are quite high with drink prices to match! ($10 for a glass of wine).

I enjoyed almost everything but the Fried Cornbread was disappointing , to me it was under cooked and just fried on one side, but being from the south could be the reason.
