First of all, the food is outstanding. I mean really, really good. The ambiance is just wonderful, well decorated. But the service is just so wonderful. Everyone is so nice and helpful. We came here twice on our trip to Maine. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I have been coming here for years when we are in the area. Actually, we make it a point to eat here. The staff is always friendly, the menu has something for everyone, the cocktail menu is great and they always have great, local beers. The turkey sandwich on the cranberry bread is yummy, as are both... More

Long time fan and repeat customer. I've recommended Robert's to many. Sadly, with the ownership change, the crackers with ever-changing interesting cream cheese spread has disappeared. We always enjoyed the tasty and hospitable gesture. It's a simple thing; setting Robert's apart ( more interesting than a roll ). If it "ain't "broke don't fix it.

May just be a learning curve with the new owners, but fried clams were overcooked, pot roast was just lukewarm. They also stopped serving the crackers and spread, now if you want bread it's $2, and it was stale and cold. Nice atmosphere but overpriced for what you get. It's too bad since there really are limited choices in the... More

I was in Kittery to do a bit of shopping on Superbowl Sunday & was surprised at the light traffic in the area. I decided to stop at Roberts for lunch, a place that's habitually packed with a 30 minute wait. But, this was not the case this visit. I was seated immediately at a table with a great water-view....

We stopped here on our way home from a weekend away in Ogunquit. It's hard to find a restaurant that's open this time of year so we were very happy to have stumbled upon this place. We were seated upstairs near a window. We had a nice view, and the atmosphere is very nice. Our waitress was extremely nice and... More

I went with a bunch of friends from Virginia to RMG ..we loved the clam chowder , lobster roll and fresh haddock .The local beer was fantastic! The staff was super friendly and smiling all the time. Will be sure to return in summer to try their raw bar.

Excellent service and whoever it was at the bar knows his/her job. Ordered lobster roll, fish and fries, onion rings, and clam chowder. The lobster was light and meaty with the right amount of mayo.

My husband and I both had fish and chips. Crisp fish. Average fries. Didn't try the lobster. There are so many good seafood restaurants in Maine. Nothing no wrong with this at all, just not wowed. Maybe other dishes would do that. Nice atmosphere. Very good staff. Would we go back? Maybe again in winter when other seafood restaurants are... More

Description
Robert's opened in June 2006 with the same mission that it has today: to take a fresh spin on farm-to-table Maine cuisine. Sourcing local ingredients has always been a strong part of Maine culture, and we are passionate about taking these values to the next level with innovative dishes and modern ambience. So yes, we are renowned for our lobster, baked and fried seafood, steaks, burgers and local craft beer, but we also strive to include New American elements to our menu with seasonal, local ingredients. Over the years, Robert's has grown to become a Maine institution, celebrating the evolving culinary landscape of the state. Most importantly, we strive to serve locals and visitors with food that is fresh, mindful and delicious!
