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

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... More

The quintessential Maine lobster pound with great lobster and great steamers at a great price! A must-see in KB!

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.

Nunan's has 3 lobster boats that's why it's consistently the best. Like other seafood, freshness matters certainly days and even hours matter. In this part of Maine in the summer you can probably find other places with really fresh lobster, the key being "probably find". Here, for sure, that's what you get. As other's note, it's just about lobster and... More

The best lobster in the Kennebunkport area and price is right compared to to some of the other resturants. This place is for the serious lobster lover, no frills and friendly staff. Only disappointment was they only open for dinner.

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...
