Been many times and usually excellent. Not last night. Lobster was really dry and bland. Asked for a medium rare burger and got medium well. Disappointed

Roberts Maine Grill is our go-to place when we visit Maine. This time we were seated outside (our choice). The service was fabulous. Our server, Jessica, was awesome. Just enough attention without being too present. Food was wonderful - fried brussels sprouts, caesar salads, buttermilk fried chicken. We can't wait to go back.

Make reservations for dinner as they get busy on the weekend. The views from upstairs are beautiful overlooking the water. Great food and drinks. Good price too for excellent, high quality meals. Best of surf and turf. My husband was a huge fan of the raw bar too!

I was craving whole bellied fried clams.
They were listed at Market Price...but I just went ahead and ordered them. Have had them many times there before. Thankfully the waitress stopped me and let me know there had been a big jump in Market Price. The fried clams were now $42.00!
So I regrettably passed.
Clam chowder was delicious. Brussel Sprout appetizer was INCREDIBLE. The sweet potato fries were some of the best. But I have to say that I felt the lobster roll was lacking. Not enough meat, and the meat that was there were all pretty small pieces without much substance.
However, the blueberry pie with ice cream was a perfect ending to the meal.
The service, Brandy, I believe, was EXCELLENT.
Love the menu. Will definitely be back to try something else!

A great place for dinner. The food was excellent and the server was great - many insights regarding the menu choices. Even allowed me to taste a beer to see if I liked it - saved me from making a bad choice.

Despite being busy, the menu selections were delivered in a timely fashion and looked as good as they tasted.

Nicely done!!! We will back when we visit next...

Awesome food as usual. Made a reservation- sat down exactly at the reserved time. I had the oyster on the half shell which is a must try! Lobster roll with butter and sweet potato fries. I also tried their clam chowder thIs time. My husband got the lobster roll with a bit of Mayo - he said it was perfect since it wasn’t just Mayo, lettuce and lobster on a roll like other places.
The citrus Martini was good as well as their Bloody Mary with shrimp of course

Some of the freshest seafood ever tasted. Also went for lunch earlier in the week. Had some oysters and little necks from raw bar; steamers (delicious in garlic sauce) and boiled lobsters. Raw bar a bit pricey but very fresh. Ate at several restaurants in Kittery and Portsmouth all week. Robert’s was excellent but priciest of them all. Had seafood at a few others that was just as good and not as pricey

Excellent service, food was great as usual. Hopefully on our next trip to town you have brought back the lemon poppyseed dressing for the lobster Cobb salad and the kale soup. Those are our favorites!

As usual, Robert’s was superb. Food is consistently wonderful, service is terrific. The only issue is the parking. With the outside tent, parking is tough.

Service and food were excellent. Waitress explained timing issues with a understaffed kitchen. Food was delivered in a reasonable time frame and was quite good.
Server was attentive. Even with the tables spaced as they are now the restaurant is always noisy. Pricing has always been a touch too high, especially since the gratis dip and crackers was removed.

This was my second time at Robert’s and the food was very good. We came last year during Covid and a great meal so I decided to try it again. We had the lobster sliders, the lobster risotto, the grilled scallops and the beef short ribs. All of our meals were delicious and the service was great. We also enjoyed the Raspberry citrus martini!

I found the portion for my meal a bit small. I requested no potatoes and to double the spinach. I did not get the potatoes but my spinach was practically non existent.
My 3 guests were happy with their meal.

I wished that I knew there was a back room off the second floor. We noticed it as we were leaving and would have liked to have sat there. We sat in the middle of the room and did not have a view.
