First time dining inside a restaurant since Covid struck. We always enjoy the food and the atmosphere at Robert’s and it was nice to begin our inside dining adventures with a trip to our favorite seafood restaurant.

I’ve been to Robert’s many times but not recently because of the pandemic. The food is consistently good so I often take visitors. On Saturday night everyone liked the food but two of us had lobster rolls that we thought was a little light on the lobster. Besides that, everyone enjoyed the restaurant.

We found this restaurant by "accident" by stopping in Kittery en route to Freeport around 8 years ago. The food is always excellent. VERY fresh and the atmosphere casual. It is a must stop on any trips going to Maine or New Hampshire.

To celebrate “fully vaccinated”status we went for the oysters. It was great. However I would say that the rest of the menu was rather predictable, and featured mostly calorie laden fare or boring salads.

Fantastic restaurant with amazing service and a great Maine experience with just the right amount of classy kitsch. Lobster was excellent and the blueberry pie a la mode is a MUST have!

Great oysters; short ribs were quite good. We always sit upstairs; our server, Megan, always does an excellent job.

Wine list could improve; needs to add European red wines: France, Portugal, Spain.

Had a wonderful experience . Very comfortable place to have dinner. I had the lobster risotto and my husband had the burger. It was perfect. Also had the chocolate cake for dessert which was equally delicious. This place is always consistent and can count a good meal every time.

We went for dinner one night during our vacation, and it was so good, we went back the next night! We tried 7 different dishes between our family, and they were all excellent. The noise level was good-our 7 month old slept through it all. We will definitely be back!

The lobster rolls were worth the price - both cold with mayo and hot buttered. Service was efficient and friendly - and we certainly appreciated the restaurant's willingness to accommodate our late reservation.

We had calamari to start and then crab cakes and Caesar salads (I chose salmon to top mine and hubby chose steak). Requested a view of the water and staff was able to accommodate. Server was absolutely phenomenal!

Location threw me, but once inside transformed to an amazing experience. Service was excellent, seafood fresh/delicious, raw bar, great portions and enough selections to suit everyone’s taste from 2-99. Will be going back.

Best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at, if I could rate it higher than a 5 I would. Service was friendly and informative, the food had excellent quality and taste, if covid wasn’t a thing I’d kiss the chef.

We have driven by this restaurant hundreds of times and never stopped as it is along route 1 and lots of outlet shopping so we didn't think we would like it too much. But, we were wrong, it is a great place, good food, nice servers. Good all around experience.

Ordered the boneless short ribs on the restaurant week special menu and my wife ordered the white clam pizza on the same menu. My beef was good from a seafood restaurant (my mistake) and the pizza crust was cutable and void of clams. The funny bone cake was EXTREMELY rich and worth another visit but not sure it is on the regular menu.
