Good food, good service. Watched our waiter go from empty house to full-on hammered in about 5 minutes. He was a PRO.

We stopped here on our way down to Newagen and had a delicious lunch of seafood fondue (proof that cheese and seafood DO mix), clam chowder and a lobster roll. All of it was delicious. The view was enough to get my cold-weather-phobic wife to sit outside in October, too!

Great service in a laid back atmosphere. Best lobster I ever had. The deck would be a lot of fun in the summer.

Walked in on them right before closing. Sat in bar area, they were very gracious. We arrived late and were hungry. Had a haddock sandwich - great! Very light breading and a lot of fish. Taste was really good. Other people at table had a salad and it looked like it had been freshly picked. Looked and taste fantastic. Cook... More

This was our first meal upon arriving in Maine and so, of course, it had to comprise of creamy, chunky, chowder, and steamers and lobster - eat local, buy local, that's our motto. I had sung the praises of true Maine food to my partner who had never been Down East and Robinson's did not let me down. The beer... More

We had two dinners there and loved them. We ordered the same thing both times -- oysters on the half shell and lobster already shelled. The steamed lobster came with new potatoes and asparagus. We loved it. The oysters were fresh and yummy! Servers both nights were really great. It is a casual, friendly atmosphere. We will go back.

Every year we visit this restaurant and every year we are very pleased with our experience and meal. The food is right up there and the service is excellent. We have to pay a particular tribute to our bartender, Alvin, who made our dinners there most enjoyable. We ended up going twice this year and it was mostly because of... More

This is a casual dinning experience with great lobster. We ordered twin 1# lobsters with corn on the cob and cole slaw. I think the price was less than $22. And some very good beers too.

I have been going to Boothbay Harbor/Southport area for over 35 years. Robinson's used to be such a treat. WOW, have they gone downhill! They appear to be trying to be something they are not. My husband and I recently had dinner there. We ordered lobster scampi and chicken Alfredo. The ingredients were there but they forgot to put in... More
