This is a great resturant to look over the water and have wonderful lobster. i only have one concern, I hate spiders, really hate spiders, and one came up on the window I was watching the water out of and I left with my tail between my legs.

Yes the place is a step back in time, it never will be more then that. Yes the diners may be older, or mostly tourist, that also is part of the place. The service was friendly and attentive. They often offer promotions which can be seen on their web site. This month is an interesting special of many items for... More

Every year we go to Portsmouth, NH for Memorial Day weekend. We love taking the dog with us as Portsmouth is very dog friendly. We also for some reason head over to Warren's to have our fill of seafood. On some years I would give it a rating of 1-2 out of 5 as the food came out cold and/or... More

Husband had scallops, same silly toast points and dull sauce. Great for tourists that don't know better. Over priced. Some many small seafood places around. I... More

Let me preface to say I'm a frequent diner of Warrens. We've been eating here for years. It's always been good to excellent in terms of food and service. Today my familly took me to lunch at Warren's for my birthday. Four out of our party ordered haddock dinners. Three of the haddock dinners had a very off taste. My... More

We were able to establish that this party visited Warren's. We take this very seriously but have had no calls or emails and therefore have no way to follow up. More

If you're heading northbound on I95, as soon as you cross the bridge and enter Maine, take exit 1 and drive directly to Warren's for the freshest, tasty lobster. Easy to find, ample parking. Expansive menu and great service. You can't ask for much more. Warren's has been in business since 1940.

DH ordered the cranberry glazed salmon which he said was delicious. I had the baked scallops which were tender and lightly covered with a crumb topping. The salad bar comes with the entree. The salad bar has a wide variety of items and is kept stocked. We make a dessert of the fruit and their famous pumpkin bread. Our waitress... More
