Nice views from the benches. As a Maine-Mass native, when I order lobster, I expect some lemon with it and something else for veggies - not chips. When I order steamers, I expect a cup of steamer broth too (which is very healthy to drink afterwards) - never plain hot water! I guess that tourists expect nothing special or just... More

Place is very humble, but the lobster roll was the freshest I've had. I went back a few days later and had another before I left.

Nunan's doesn't seem too be advertised, but our B&B host put us on to it. Basically it's a fisherman's hut by the sea, and the speciality is fresh lobster. Wonderful - excellent value.

Rich in history and tradition, this gem serves the freshest lobster one can eat, at affordable prices. If ever close by, do yourself a favor and enjoy a lobster fest, down home, so to speak. You'll not be disappointed.

Our hostess from 1802 house suggested Nunan's when we asked for "just straight up Maine lobster" and this place was perfect!! Freshly caught and boiled and served with just a bit of butter, although, truth be told, the lobster is so sweet and tender you don't even need the butter!! No frills or gimics but an amazing wine list to... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel & what a gem of a place. It has rustic charm, situated down a quiet street in a wooden hut with beams & fishing buoys etc hanging from the ceiling. The staff were lovely & even demonstrated how to break up your lobster & which parts to avoid. My husband said the... More

Small and inviting little lobster shack, located in Cape Porpoise, just outside Kennebunkport. No need to say that the specialty is LOBSTER ! Clam chowder is also excellent. Service is fast and friendly. Atmosphere is casual and the decor makes you feel you're in Maine. Prices are reasonable for the seafood quality that you will find here. NB: they just... More

When a Georgia boy can hand pick his lobster, watch it cooked, and gross out his kids at the same time, priceless. Service was quick and friendly. Simple straightforward fare at a reasonable price. And it was really good. This is what I expected from a Maine lobster restaurant and I wasn't disappointed.

Nunan's restaurant has been around for years and years. I even worked there as a waitress back in the 1960s! The best lobster around is found at this restaurant that has been run by the Nunan family for all those years. Try their lobster stew also. Yum!!
