Robert's is a great meeting place for me, who lives in Maine, my daughter and grandson who live in Massachusetts, and my sister who lives in New Hampshire. It takes each of us a little more or a little less than an hour to arrive for a great meal from their fantastic menu--including that fantastic blueberry lemon cake for dessert.
We spent a happy two hours there this past Saturday, conversing, laughing and greatly enjoying the food and service at a wonderful restaurant. We'll be enjoying other reunion times there in the future. Great wait staff! The food portions were generous and we had tasty left overs for dinner last night.

Cocktails good. Oysters fabulous. Clams with linguini nicely done. Desert was the weak link. Two out of two deserts (blueberry pie and a lemon blueberry frosted cake) less than average.

Service was great, oysters were awesome, other food was completely tasteless and unmemorable. The calamari was bland and rubbery. The crab cakes had way too much breading and little crab. The brussel sprouts were greasy. We definitely won’t go back.

The haddock chowder was amazing and being gluten free made it even better.
Our steaks were cooked perfectly as were the scallops. The crab cakes were slightly disappointing as I thought they would be a little fresher and not so heavily fried.

Overall we will most definitely be going again.

Very disappointed in the food. Food lacked flavor and was very $$ for no reason.

The only thing I can say was our waitress was very nice and did a wonderful job accommodating us during our dinner.

Overall was not pleased with the food and price. I wouldn’t recommend.

Went out for a New Years Eve lunch, trying to avoid late night mayhem. We made reservations and showed up a few minutes early. We were seated fairly quickly. We ordered some delicious espresso martinis to start, as well as some oysters. We were told the raw bar was a bit backed up, but we did not care. Just really wanted them at some point in the day. To our surprise they showed up only a short while later. I ordered the haddock Ruben and the sauce was so yummy. My boyfriend ordered the fish and chips, loved every bite. Great service and food!

We ate here two days in a row, traveling from Boston while on vacation (live in FL). The food was great! I also liked that I was able to get a Lobster roll on GF bread and it was delicious. I would recommend stopping here if in the area.

The food was excellent. Service was very good better than prepandemic expectations. With the openness of the restaurant it does get a little loud but not over bearing.
I recommend Robert’s. I will return

We had friends from out of town visiting. Everyone wanted something different. Some wanted seafood, while others wanted steak and potatoes. The menu covered all the bases and everyone really enjoyed their meals.
I reserved our table online and it made for an enjoyable experience especially since we had two children 12 and under.
Thank you!

My husband had the broiled salmon dinner and it was outstanding. I enjoyed the mussels and the sauce they were prepared in was to die for. The quantity was generous. I also had the haddock chowder and this was where you lost a star. The broth was very tasty but a bit thin and the quantity of haddock was on the slim side.
More generous haddock portion and thicken up the liquid, then you'll have your fifth food star back!

Lobster risotto was not very good at all. Rice was not cooked well, not creamy like it should be, flavor was very bland.

Disappointing Haddock Dinner. The Fish was so, over cooked we decided to just throw it away. The restaurant seemed to be out of sorts. Each item, appetizers, and Entrees came out at different times. Hopefully, this was an aberration and they will get it together, with better food prep and serving.

Relax before or after shopping the outlets with this civilized spot for fresh seafood (tons of local oysters) with a view of the river. Consistently yummy food, friendly service, nice atmosphere, and reasonable prices. Have eaten here half a dozen times, and it is always the same -- which is comforting, and cannot be said for many, many of the restaurants along the southern Maine coast! Robert's done it right, year-round.

Delicious dinner on a somewhat quiet Sunday night. Tables were spaced apart. Haddock reuben and lobster sliders were quite tasty. My wife and daughter enjoyed the chocolate and peanut butter buttercream layer cake for dessert.

The staff at Robert's was very accommodating. We were running late, due to traffic during a parade, and they were able to hold our table for 1/2 hour. The food was excellent and our waitress was very sweet and amicable.
