I've eaten at Roberts about 6 times now, and I've never been disappointed. Their seafood is always delicious and fresh. The service is friendly. And the restaurant is clean and comfortable with a casual, coastal vibe. This time, my husband and I ordered fried seafood for the first time, and it was the BEST seafood we have ever eaten. (That's... More

I already went 3 times to Robert's Maine Grill and have never been disappointed. The quality and freshness of Lobsters and Oysters is very high and the food is very delicious. I love coming here whenever I'm in the Portsmouth/Kittery area. Definitely recommendable!

I had a signature special - Harrigan's Casserole - decadently good. Others in party loved what they had. Prices incl. those for wine and beer were more than reasonable. Excellent service. Waitress even got us a copy of the recipe for Harrigan's Casserole. Can't wait to go back.

Great food/service...sat at the bar and had a great selection of appetizers that were complimented by a good sized selection of beers, mostly local. The mussels, steamers, brussel sprouts and oysters were all very good. Not too expensive and is probably pretty crowded during the summer months, but it is an excellent option now if you are headed north for... More

While Christmas shopping on a Friday in December, we stopped here at around 12:30 for lunch. We were seated right away. A small basket of crackers and cheese spread was delivered & our order was taken in a timely manner. There were two of us and we each had the haddock rueben sandwich ($16) and a glass of iced tea....

Description
When we opened Robert’s in June 2006, we had a certain idea: we could do a version of the big Maine seafood restaurant that was rooted in the tradition of these places, but also inspired by up-to-date food trends like local farm-to-table ingredients and more creative recipes. Owner Michael Landgarten had long been a fan, patron, and student of these large all-purpose (seafood-centric but not exclusively seafood) Maine restaurants.Traditionally, coastal Maine seafood restaurants focus on a large, seafood-centered menu featuring steamed lobster, baked and fried seafood, steaks, burgers, and have a bar, and usually some outside dining. We liked this notion for Robert’s, but wanted it to be a “now” experience – about the best of Maine food. In the Midcoast region, the farm-to-table movement had started long before there was that name for it. Back-to-the landers there started restaurants that sourced directly from local fisherman and farmers.We’re still searching for that ideal blend of traditional Maine, farm-to-table, and what’s best and real in new cuisine. Mostly though, we are guided by our purpose – to make guests happy!
