Great restaurant to sit down and have an enjoyable dinner. It is very much catered to seafood but I had the chicken meal with potatoes and coleslaw. It was delicious!

Ate at the bar to notch a stop along the Maine Oyster Trail. We were impressed with the oyster selection- a mix of basic “must haves” like Norembega and Glidden Points plus some new unknowns to sample.

I love Robert’s ! All the food is excellent but I always go for their oysters. I love oysters on the half shell.
Robert’s has the cleanest, freshest oysters anywhere.

The clam chowder was excellent and my husband and I shared the BIG seafood platter, plenty of food for two. We were really impressed that everyone working in the restaurant wore masks and so did the diners while moving around the restaurant. We felt very safe and are going back again tonight.

I thought Robert's Maine Grill was really cute and seafood was fresh and delicious. I lot of the items that said Market Price was expensive but portion size was huge. Maybe reduce the portion size as well as the price? Service was great and we got seated and got our meals in a timely matter. I would recommend that when shopping in Kittery, go try Robert's.

Meal was good, however, had to drink order came out at the same time as appetizers. One person ordered the lobster risotto and the lobster was like chewing leather and the risotto was tasteless, sticky and crunchy. Someone should figure out a different method of cooking the risotto and not slap a chewy broiled tail on top of it. It should be incorporated into the risotto and should have been claw meat instead.

What a fabulous meal. The filet mignon was a good size, was so tender and cooked to perfection. The scallops were also cooked perfectly and were accompanied by a bacon cream sauce that was out of this world. The grilled cornbread is always a great side - so crisp and flavorful.

Food was very good - clam chowder, lobster roll and fish and chips and raw oysters. All servers had masks on, but guests were not required to wear masks when away from their table (we don't like that). Tables were quite far apart, which was good.
Service was excellent - attentive without being over bearing.

Bathrooms - pretty clean. However, they way they were cleaning the tables in between guests did not look very sanitary. They were using rags to wipe the tables.

The Mac and cheese was terrible. The fried clams subpar. The waitress was below average. A bit on the unfriendly and borderline rude. We won’t be recommending or returning. Sorry. I had much higher hopes.

The food at Robert's Maine Grill is generally good however the stuffed clam appetizer that we ordered was very expensive. $6 for a stuffed clam that is 3 inches in diameter is decidedly overpriced.

Was very nice inside, cool atmosphere and ambience. Right by the water. Appetizer was awesome but main course (lobster roll) was kind of dry and very small. Service was not very friendly although the hostesses were friendly and helpful. I might try it again
