Closing out the season

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.

Besides the very tasteful lobster we loved the interior and down to earth ambiance. Great place for sea food. If you are... More

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

We had the most amazing lobster dinner on our trip to Kennebunkport, ME at Nunan's Lobster Hut. No frills restaurant with a fabulous menu of lobsters, lobsters and more lobsters. Will go back!

Really a great place for a lobster meal. Fun place that is literally over the water. Don't expect a lot of amenities but nice people, fair prices and great lobster and sides. Wish I lived closer!

It's great lobster and incredible value. Don't expect much else on the menu, and inside the seating and decor do go with the hut name. It really is a hut. Wouldn't hesitate to go back to eat more lobster.

This was our second visit to Nunans. I had the 1.5 pound lobster. I have learned that, with lobster, bigger really is better. The meat is sweeter. This was my second lobster dinner in Maine this fall--we come every fall. After a bit of a let down the night before at Bartley's Dockside, which has been our regular, we have... More

It's just a Lobster Hut that serves the best Lobsters. Inside benches and bare wood tables. Efficient service. A must try while in Kennybunkport.
