An unplanned/unexpected visit brought us to Kittery one Friday evening. After taking the advice of a "local", we found our way to Warren's. By chance, we arrived at 7:00PM and seating was no issue. The atmosphere and friendliness of the staff impressed us. Their salad bar was a nice surprise and the homemade Pumpkin Bread was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Food here was good but not amazing. Nice salad bar. Fantastic peanut butter pie! I was not crazy about my main dish which was the stuffed haddock with the butternut squash. My main complaint was that my raspberry tea was $3.99 and then they charged me $2.50 for a refill without telling me there was a charge. Server was very... More

Warren's used to be the "go-to" place for a water view, lobster dinner, and fantastic salad bar - but I am sad to say that a recent lunchtime experience was terrible! I had chosen Warren's for a birthday celebration based on my own excellent past experience there, but I was woefully proven wrong. It was not our usual evening time;... More

Located right on the river with an outdoor deck and river views throughout. Fantastic seafood that is very consistent and a great value. Extra large salad bar is great! Make sure you go there hungry, as the portions are generous. Wait staff has always been professional and prompt. This is a very popular spot, so you may have a little... More

A must go. Just had twin one pound lobsters. They were sweet and delicious. My daughter's lobster needed a little more cooking when it arrived but other than that perfect. (the roe not quite cooked...and that's a delicious part). Known for the salad bar-it doesn't disappoint. Glass plates are chilled, plenty of choices,and a wonderful vegetable soup as well. Hot...

Simply put, the place ranks, at best, as an average vacationer's folly. The web site looked excellent for a lobster roll or fish or crab cake. But, that did not come to be. The crab cakes were tasteless The lobster stew was quite commercial with chopped pieces of lobster added. Nothing blended or tasted newly cooked. Service was sparse as... More

Salad bar was excellent. Chowder was delicious. They did not skimp on the clams in the chowder, which was nice. People in our party ordered baked stuffed schrod, seafood newburg, chowder and the salad bar. Newburg sauce was tasty but not heavy. Do NOT miss the pumpkin bread. Some of the best I've had. Only complaint I have: we went... More

I went with my husband and teenage daughter. We were the youngest customers in the restaurant. The salad bar was the greatest! It had anything and everything you could want and everything was very fresh. We ordered the steamers to share but we thought they were the hard shell variety. Not of fan of the New England steamers. I prefer... More

Best place right on the water for a great lobster dinner that will not break the back. Service was great and they have a good salad bar. Try the home made pumpkin bread. you'll go back just like I did.
