Warren's Lobster House was established in 1940 as a 6 stool,walk-up clam and lobster shack. Over the past 70 years, we have expanded into what today is a 350 seat, full service, family owned and operated restaurant. We are located on the waterfront on the southern tip of the Maine coast. We offer great seafood, lobster, steak, chicken and other specialities with outstanding service in a comfortable and casual family atmosphere. We feature the "Seacoast's Finest Salad Bar" with over 60 fresh and tantalizing items. We also offer a "Kid's Menu", gift shop, seasonal outdoor deck, cocktail lounge and plenty of seating with ample parking. We also offer free seasonal valet parking for our guests. We are Handicap Accessible and open daily at 1130 am. Currently, there are 3 generations of the Cunningham family involved in the daily operation of this world renouned restaurant!

Marsha had two lobster tails and I had Crusted Salmon. Both were very good, as to price it was included in our trip. It was an experience with the bibs and all.

This Kittery restaurant has been a Seacoast Region institution since its founding in 1940. I’ve eaten here countless times since the late 1980’s when I relocated to this area. I’ve never had a bad meal here. Everything at Warren’s Lobster House is good. The salad bar is famous for variety and freshness. Lobster is king here, so anything with lobster... More

Great place for families or groups, especially. The menu includes so many choices that it will please everyone. The chowder is delicious! The salad bar is extensive and there is also another station for soup and one for cheese and crackers. Be careful ! It is easy to over do it and ruin your lunch...unless your plan all along was...

Nice selection of surf and turf. Salad bar that will fill you up. Delicious pumpkin bread, maybe take a loaf home to enjoy. Waterside dining. Valet parking for the busy summer season. The restaurant to try, you be back again.

Anne had lobster which was excellent and the best she had during our 3 week trip to the States. Located right on the Piscataqua River with good view although we were bothered by mosquitoes, but well worth putting up with for the quality of the food served up. Would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.
