Perhaps the only thing missing was that it wasn't on the water, but the food was fabulous. The menu is simple. Basically lobster, lobster, lobster. The night we were there you could order 1 lb, 1 1/4 lb, 1 1/2, or 2 lbs and above. The special that night was TWO 1 1/14 lb lobsters for about $25. The lobsters... More

We ate here to get that 'authentic' Maine lobster experience and we were not disappointed. The lobster was the best we had while up in the Kennebunkport region and the service was friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is in the area - and prices were really reasonable as well. GREAT PLACE - would highly... More

This restaurant could get a 3 star or a 5 star, depending on what your criteria is. You see, this is very far from an elegant restaurant with all the trimmings and it does not have a wonderful menu with abundant fancy delicacies but it does have an ambiance of a simple, down-to-earth waterside lobster shack with simple but great...

We eat at Nunan's every year! It wouldn't be a trip to Kennebunkport without a trip to Hunan's. This week we got lobsters as well as a cheeseburger. Everything was great as usual.

We headed to Maine to eat lobster and see the sights. We asked the receptionist at the hotel desk where to go and this was quickly her answer. So off we headed. This is what I was expecting when thinking of a lobster hut. Classic, quaint and filled with history. We quickly ordered the special which was 2 1.5lb lobsters... More

We had the lobster. Amazing. We also had the blueberry pie. Amazing. Chowder was the best we've had to date . But honestly what I liked most about the place is it has character. They don't take credit cards...like I said character.

We like this place because it is what it is with no pretense. Lobsters were good. We like the down home shack look and seaside theme and ambiance. The staff was friendly. Just what you'd expect in Maine.

One would think that after 50 plus years a place with a good rating would know how to cook lobster. Maybe they forgot. Our two dinner lobsters were very tough and that means they cooked them to long. We arrived when they first opened and it took 30 minutes to be served. Maybe they forgot which pots were boiling. Their... More

The food was great and I really like the look and feel of the inside of this restaurant. I just wish it was on the water.
