When can you say you've had Lobster in a Lobster Pound? NUNAN'S LOBSTER HUT is the neatest little spot, just up the road from downtown Kennebunkport. Get there early, 10 to 5, it opens at 5pm, be first! Everyone traveling the Maine coast has heard of this charming place .. word of mouth keeps it packed all the time, right up to October and it's closing for the season!
All sizes, varied preparation, but the boiled ones are the best! Nunan's has been doing business for decades .. they've caught their own lobsters for years and you sure get what you pay for there! You'll love the decor .. old timey nets, bouys and nautical nicknacks and kitchey photos abound! Sit at one of the cozy tables (gray..battleship gray!) but Clean! It makes you feel like you're far away, but actually are sitting in the heart of Cape Porpoise, ME. Just a tiny town, but what a Lobster Hut! You'll love every bite.......more than just lobster by the way. They have dishes to suit every taste, including HOT DOGS! You'll leave happy .. after you've tasted that good old sweet tender buttered lobster .. with either beer or wine (Nunan's has both)... oh .. don't forget the homemade blueberry pie (made daily) with maybe a scoop of vanilla (made locally) ice cream ... Ahhhhh .. Nunan's .. wish I was there right now!! Don't miss it.

Looking for an authentic, non-pretentious, local lobster shack? Nunan's fits the bill exactly. It's not on the water, not new (open since the 1950's) or full of atmosphere, and doesn't have real comfortable seating (benches). But what it excels at is real good lobster at real good prices. The special for the night was a 2- 1 1/8 lobster dinner for $26. Service is good and food arrives quickly. Nothing is fancy here but the food is certainly worth the visit. They don't take credit cards but there is an ATM out front.

Whenever we arrive in Kennebunkport each year, Nunan's is our first stop for dining. We have NEVER been disappointed with the quality of food and service. What we also appreciate is the nice choice of wines at very reasonable prices . And, if the bottle of wine is not finished, the staff will package it for traveling.
Just love the place!

Nunan's is always the first dinner on the list when we visit Maine. Number 2 - Twin Lobster plus an order of Steamers sets the tone for a great visit, every time. Perfectly prepared, friendly service and reasonable prices.
