Our meal with friends was excellent. Had filet mignon, salmon, lobster roll, and fish and chips. We sat downstairs across from the bar against the window. One comment - vent on the floor was high blast and cold next to my feet - put my pocketbook and menu on the floor to block it. Would come back!

Lobster Dinner was perfect and came out hot as it should. Grilled corn fantastic. Steamers were large and as good as they get. Oysters fresh and delicious. Service was outstanding and this dinner was memorable. The staff could not have been better. If you love fresh lobster,clams,oysters and seafood this is the place!

Stopped in while shopping in kittery, restaurant is open and inviting with a beautiful bar when you first step inside. Food was vey good and the portions were huge, more than one person could eat. There is an outside patio on the second floor that you should definitely check out if seating is available. Service was great and very attentive.

Perfect lobster roll. I’m leaving a bad review for the lobster Mac & cheese. It’s the worst I ever had. Blech. Hardly any lobster. More bread crumbs than anything. Had an unpleasant taste. They need to revamp this recipe. Especially for $25.00. Very disappointed. Server was very friendly.

Our favorite: perfectly-shucked oysters served with lemon, cocktail sauce, horseradish, and mignonette. Robert's offers quite a few varieties of fresh oysters from NH and beyond. Our server, Kayleigh, was extremely attentive to our rather large group (ages 7 to 91). Conveniently located a block from Kittery Trading Post, Robert’s offers a more upscale experience compared to Weathervane. The restaurant is airy and the decor is modern cottage. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. There’s also an outdoor covered porch offering a great view of the Maine marshes. Can’t wait to go back.

Service friendly; but spotty in delivery. Ordered salmon; over cooked past the medium requested. The pesto was a little much for the salmon. Rice was luke warm and asparagus over cooked. Flavor overall was good - but room for improvement. Seated on the upstairs deck; very nice view and breeze.

One of our favorite restaurant finds, ever! On our way to Maine (from Boston) we stopped here for lunch and it was so good we made a second stop on our way back to Boston! The oysters were amazing...great local beer selection. The lobster roll was so rich and buttery, by far the best I had during the trip. Sit upstairs on the back deck too...great view! Love this spot!

We have been to Roberts 3 times since last summer and we have always been more than satisfied with the service, food and ambience of the restaurant.

This time the food was ok, and the service was mediocre at best. The waitress was not very knowledgeable towards the menu, and her lack of interest towards the products made it frustrating for us to even trust her regarding our selections. She was very nice and I'm sure with some proper training, she could become an asset, but until then for us to spend 480$ on a meal and feel like we could have just ordered at a counter and have gotten the same results is a shame.

The seafood tower this time was good but not perfect as it usually is. The oysters were dirty and not perfectly shucked. (One was even served upside down). The shrimps were perfect as usual! The mains were fantastic as well.

The food has always been very good but never perfect on our previous visits. (Our Tomahawk steak was burned on our previous visit). But the great service and amazing seafood tower always made up for the small imperfections of the kitchen.

We will definitely return, but we certainly hope to get better service on our next visit.

Consistently good food and service. It’s our go to restaurant during summer season. They accept reservations which is a plus when dining with hungry kids.

We were seated immediately on the time we booked and during the busy season this means a lot to our group. Roberts never failed to honor time slots when other places do not. The seafood is fantastic. Cooked the way it is ordered & the craft stout brewed locally was a real winner.
The waitress brought a birthday dessert and everything was perfect.

Early reservation for bday. Were given a postage stamp size table. Aside from not getting the table we asked for. The meal and staff were amazing.

One of the best restaurants along the south shore of Maine.

Loved the oysters. Best I had in awhile. I also really enjoyed the fish and chips. It was made to perfection. Fresh batter that was not too thick and perfectly cooked.

The rest of my party all enjoyed their meals.

Desserts was awesome!

For steamed lobster, lobster rolls and other seafood including great Ceasar salad with lobster is the place to go. Also, Robert’s offers delicious hamburgers. The service is good and the waitstaff are very helpful.
While staying in Kittery Point for a period of seven days, my wife and I and another couple have dined at Robert’s three enjoyable times.

3 of 4 of us had delicious lobster rolls with a generous amount of meat. The 4th had fabulous looking fish and chips, with a fresh, crispy coating. Our waiter was a delightful young man.

We love that the owners--who also own the more casual Bob's Clam Hut, across the street--are environmentally conscious.

Our family - including three young children - ate here twice in five days during our trip to Maine. The oysters were fresh and delicious, and, being rather new to oysters, we appreciated the knowledgeable and helpful staff. The lobster cobb salad was generously portioned with just the right amount of dressing. The desserts were well-done and the kids' meals were a hit.
