Great Lobster

Nothing fancy here. The price for lobster was $3 cheaper than the Weathervane (Tourist) next door. This place had locals for clientele. The lobster was fantastic. It is a BYOB restaurant. It is, like many lobster places in New England, closed after Labor Day. Would we go back? CERTAINLY.

We accidentally came upon this place on our return from Canada last week. It was BY FAR - the BEST and FRESHEST lobster we had in 3 weeks of our travels. In fact, the lobster was so good, the prices so fair, we had 2 lobsters! Can't recommend enough. Casual atmosphere, outside seating on the river between NH and ME... More

We live in Portsmouth, NH, just across the bridge from this delightful, little lobster eatery. We sometimes go by boat since they have one open slip for guests. We love Morrison's! Donna, the owner, is wonderful. She operates the place for the love of it, but just Memorial Day through Labor Day I think. Yummy lobster rolls at good prices.... More

Want the authentic Maine lobster foodie experience? Then Morrison's Lobster is THE place to go. SInce finding this gem I have returned too many times over the last eight years and have never been disappointed. If you're expecting to be rushed through your meal by an owner looking for table turns, this is not the place. Morrison's is more like... More

Had a two pound steamed lobster...excellent. Wish I had known that there is byob. Would have brought a bottle of wine. Right on the river with view of boat activity. Definitely will be back.

I am just about done going to Kittery, Maine for a lobster dinner. There were several places where the very low cost lobsters sold in the markets there were cooked and sold to people willing to eat them on picnic tables on decks where there is very little overhead, for a nice profit. Lately, it appears the restaurant owners have... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant after getting a good review from the hotel staff and from trip advisor. We both ordered lobster rolls. They had lots of lobster on the roll and looked good but it had absolutely no flavor. If we closed our eyes we wouldn't know it was lobster. So disappointed!

Took a day trip to Portsmouth from Boston and crossed the bridge to delightfully find Morrison's and Badgers Island. We both agreed that the Lobster may have been the best we've ever had (and we are New Englanders) ....the steamers fresh and clean. The comfortable deck provides a perfect, easy opportunity to sit and enjoy everything. We promised to return... More

Freshest lobster you will ever find! Beautiful views. It seems family owned. A break from the norm. BYOB and cash only.
