The clam chowder and lobster was amazing. However, the lobster Mac & Cheese was disappointing ( 3 little strands- not the 3 oz stated). The service was great and very attentive. I would recommend this restaurant.

It was pretty busy, but we were seated quickly. Sharon & I had the Clam chowder, which was very good. I liked how it was creamy & not like porridge, which seems what passes for chowder at most places. Richard had the Haddock chowder, which I liked more than the Clam chowder. It just had a more robust flavor. I'll get it the next time. For our mains, I had the baked stuffed Lobster. Plenty of Shrimp & Scallops in the stuffing. The breadcrumbs were rather tasteless, however. I'd recommend using crushed Ritz crackers. Sorry, to say but they DO have the flavor that suits a Baked stuffed Lobster. Next time I'll get the Lobster Savannah. Sharon had the Lobster sliders, which she enjoyed. Richard had the bake stuffed Haddock. Again, the bland breadcrumbs. I recommend the kitchen try the Ritz & taste for themselves. It WILL beat the bread crumbs hands down. For sides I had the daily veg. which was Summer & Zucchini squash. Very nicely done. Now I do recommend the Mashed potatoes with the gravy. That gravy made for the best Mashed I've had in a LONG time. Corny as it sounds it was the best thing on the plate(actually in a metal dish)I purposely did not finish them. I finished them the next day. Added a bit of milk to bring it back & it was great. I really recommend getting them as a side.

We have been going to Robert’s for over 20 years. The food is always consistently good. This time our food came to us not hot. I think it was more the servers fault than the cook I hope. We were upstairs and I think they forgot about our food. My husband never got the oysters he ordered and I had to ask about them and say don’t bother since he was almost done with his lunch. Our service this time was not good. We never got asked if we needed anything or how our order was. We never got drink refills. I spent half our meal looking around to see if I saw our server. If you’re seated upstairs it’s not good. They need to have someone upstairs at all times.

Food is always very good here. Nice selection of fresh local oysters. Ambience is spartan. Noise level is high, probably because of bad acoustics.

We started with 4 jumbo shrimp and An order of Calamari. Both were perfect!
I had the RMG salad with Chicken
My husband had the baked haddock with stuffing and both were perfect. A wonderful meal all around.

Based on the latest reviews, I had big expectations. I got the clam chowder that was runny and just ok, side salad and cornbread as my sides with my steamed lobster. They would NOT let me substitute any side with brussel sprouts. What?! What makes brussel sprouts so elite that you can’t have them as a side. She said I literally could substitute with anything else. So odd. They also did not have a baked potatoe. How is that possible when you have lobsters and steaks on the menu? I could have mashed potatoes with gravy though. So odd. My lobster was over steamed because sections were mushy. All in all, my meal was so mediocre. My husband liked his lobster risotto.

Our waitress was lovely though.

Tables were spaced for COVID, which was appreciated. They also had outdoor seating, under a huge tent. We requested a window seat, inside, with a view of the bay.

We were not rushed. Our waitress was efficient and friendly. Food was good.

We were a party of four and one couple had an alzheimer's patient, we explained that to the waitress before they arrived. The waitress was so kind and empathetic as well as compassionate and patient with that person, it was wonderful and she deserves credit for her patience even when stressed by a busy dining area.

I love Roberts and always have I’ve been coming for years my grandfather and I really appreciate all the wonderful staff that work there but brandy is by far our favorite!!! She so accommodating no matter how busy she is, the oysters, salmon and lobster sliders are my absolute favorite and who ever is behind the bar Wednesdays and Thursdays you make the most perfect martinis!!!!! Keep up the amazing work Roberts you do the best job thanks for all the good times!!

We had a very pleasant experience there. I had asked for accommodation for an octogenarian and they gave us a nice first floor table with padded seats.

The noise level was very reasonable -- somewhere between quiet and moderate.

Food and drinks were very good. My basil lime martini was excellent as was the moonshine-based Mule that my wife had.

The wait staff was very pleasant and accommodating.

All in all, very pleased with the experience.

The food is fantastic. My daughter and I shared the bacon, cheese brussel sprouts appetizer and it was so yummy! I had fish and chips and it was a delight! The batter was light and crispy and the fish so tender. Very flavorful meal. My daughter had the baked salmon with pesto and loved it. Even my picky-eater grandson wished he had ordered the salmon after being allowed a bite, although he enjoyed his chicken tenders and fries. Right now most restaurants are struggling to hire servers and kitchen staff. Robert's may need more help, but we were taken care of in a fairly prompt and polite and capable way. I live near Portland. My daughter and grandson live in MA...Eating at Robert's is a good half-way point for each of us. We'll be back!

Had a 1:15pm reservation. The place was crazy when we arrived. The parking lot was full. The interior was packed. We ended up in the tent in the parking lot with no view. Food and service was good. Ambiance was lacking.
