I recently stopped by for lunch with my wife on a shopping expedition! The restaurant was quite busy, and we ordered oysters, as a starter. The oysters arrived and they tried to place to much on the platter, so I got drenched with Oyster, fluid, condiments etc. Not pretty! The staff and the management handled it perfectly, recognizing the situation... More

Robert's Maine Grill is situated on the water flow from the coast and one sees it right out the restaurant's windows. Artistic work of local artists is featured on the walls and the food is excellent. Varied oysters, clams, lobster rolls, and steamers are wonderful. The staff and the service is prompt and attentive. They also have special meal features... More

We arrived last night to a barely busy restaurant. The "free" appetizer was crackers with a very bland dip. The salad appetizer was okay, but the greens were just soaked in dressing. The meal was really sub-par. The french fries were over-salted and the extra onion rings we ordered were forgotten. The waitress was extremely nice and apologized, but the... More

Second time here. What a wonderful place. Food is outstanding. Prices were more than fair an the atmosphere is just great. Our server seemed new and a little shy and nervous but she did all that we expected. Highly recommended. Best place in Kittery for dining.

You can't beat this place. The lobster is amazing. The price is not cheap, but they do not rip you off. The quality and quantity is that high. They do it right.

Chic looking place, boring food (with the exception of the roasted peppers that accompanied the crab cakes. The fish seemed frozen commercial, (although we were told everything was "made from scratch") and in a coastal town in Maine, one expects fresh seafood. Flavor bland. French fries-commercial no seasoning. Should do hand cut. Crab cakes cold. Lobster salad, delicious, but small.... More

This place is fantastic. I ordered the lobster roll and clam chowder meal. Excellent. The lobster was a little more chewy than what I'm accustomed to in a lobster roll, but it had great flavor. My husband and I also tried the lobster sliders because we had never had lobster on a biscuit. We both agreed we were going to... More

The food was adequate, but nothing I'd go back for a second time. We came away wishing we'd gone somewhere else for our last night at the beach. The service was okay, but our waitress had a bit of a sassy attitude (and not in a good funny way). Wouldn't choose this restaurant again.

Nice a restaurant with a very good menu of seafood and American food . Love the chowder and I've tried chowder every where I go. Very nice atmosphere and bar area. Outside seating overlooking the marsh. My favorite place in Kittery.

It was our first visit to Roberts. We had seen it with a good crowd around so we figured we'd try it. Clean appealing establishment. Kind courteous staff. Good variety of menu selections. Someplace we would probably try again during a future visit.

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!
