This is a great old fashioned lobster shack in Cape Porpoise that is the real deal - not fancy - just down to earth Maine Lobster. Bring your old dirty t-shirt and skip the bib, and start cracking away and the pink wonders of Maine Lobster.

Delicious! At 32 years old, this was my first full-lobster experience and it didn't disappoint me. The atmosphere was cool, the food was amazing, alcohol was reasonably priced, and our server was awesome. Wish they took credit cards! I hate paying with cash (but there is an ATM outside)!

We visited Nunan's on the 8th of May, just two days after it opened for the season. We had been here last year on our vacation and knew we couldn't go to Maine and not go to Nunan's! The lobster was great although we were a bit cold as there didn't seem to be any heaters and they refused to... More

An old boat house, shiny marine painted floors and benches. Tables gleamingly clean and polished..with raised edges on the tables so you don't drip into your lap while eating. Lobsters in various sizes, boiled to order...the quitessential

We went here on the last night of the season(10/18), The lobsters are as fresh as you can get them. And the steak is first rate. They also make their own root beer(regular or diet). Bring cash, no cards accepted.

What a wonderful place, lobster caught by the family by day and served in their own uniquely characterful restaurant by night. The staff ante not only friendly but extremely helpful in the art of actually eating and enjoying lobster. They made a daunting prospect fun/

Kind of stumbled blindly onto Nunan's. Looking for something good to eat near Kennebunkport, I did a quick Trip Advisor search. Drove to Nunan's after reading the reviews, only to find they don't open until 5 pm, and it was about noon. After watching the Nunan's crew preparing live lobster for the evening crowd, we decided to drive back from... More
