Need to get there at 5pm or you end up waiting for the tables to turn over from the first set of diners. Simple menu, well executed. Obviously families return here. Hot dogs and grilled cheese for the young ones. Quick service with a smile.

No frills. Very casual. Picnic tables, bibs, pickles, and at of chips. The star attraction LOBSTA. Nightly specials 2 whole crustaceans made to order( allow 20 minutes from time order is placed). No sharing and cash only. Don't worry there is an ATM machine out front.

If you want great, cheaply priced lobster and you don't mind sitting on a bench to eat it, this is the place to be. They serve lobster, lobster and more lobster. This is what they do. The place is classic Maine so don't mind the decor because really who cares. The walls are covered with nautical memorabilia and the tables... More

As maine visitors and summer residents we have had thirty years to try lobsters. We always return to Nunan's. Whatever magic Bertha Nunan had, she passed on to her son and daughter-in-law. A perfect example of focusing on doing one thing very well. Honestly, how many restaurants in their second and third generation do you keep returning to?

Great place. Little shack on the edge of kennebunkerport. Whole lobster with a side of butter. Nice and simple. They also do a great steak

We stopped here for dinner and ordered a lobster roll served on a hot dog bun. We were quite surprised to find it very skimpy and more tougher than the delicious ones from Red Eats. Even getting a water while we waited seemed to be a problem.

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... More

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... More
