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!

Stepping back in time

Going to Warren’s Lobster House is a little like stepping back in time. I think it’s been many years since the interior or exterior has been updated. We ordered a lobster roll and lobster stew. The stew was more of lobster bisque than a stew but it was melt in your mouth delicious. Didn’t do... read more

We went for the lobster but the salad bar was the big surprise. Everything fresh and more variety than you can image. Where else can you find three different varieties of garbanzo beans, artichoke hearts, and a soup bar the size of most salad bars at other places. Real bacon bits and 8 different dressings. The lobster was good, maybe... More

Warren’s Lobster House periodically runs coupons for special deals. They can be found at the website and sometimes in regional newspaper entertainment magazines. The December coupon offered Clam Chowder & Lobster Roll with French Fries at $15.00. Since I love both menu items there, I drove over for this lunch deal. I was seated promptly in a window booth.

I've been to Warren's a couple of times and have never been disappointed. If you don't go for the seafood, at least go for the salad bar. It is truly a meal in itself. Fresh, multiple choices, and more than you could ask for. Truly worth it and right over the bridge from Portsmouth.

We've dined at Warrens on many occasions. We are frequent diners. Food is always very good as is the service from the time you enter the restaurant and are greeted by the hostesses. The salad bar is the best around and their soups are incredibly good.

We dined at Warren's for New Year's Eve. There were 4 of us total 18-73. I like the location of Warren's and hadn't been in decades so I thought it would be nice to go back. We decided while dining that Warren's must be an 'old person's restaurant'- the extensive salad bar is a huge draw and comes with every... More

We wanted to have a seafood dinner and Warren's was recommended by our hotel. We had lobsters and an appetizer of clams and all you can eat salad bar. They were the best clams I have had for a while, very fresh and lightly battered and of course the lobster was great. It was a perfect meal and the price... More

Got a gift certificate for Christmas. Food was tasty. Salad bar is big. Wish the portion sizes were bigger. Service was great. I would go back and maybe try something different. Parking lot is a nightmare when busy.

Let me start of by saying that I'm a little tough on seafood restaurants because my mom is Cajun. That being said, I would say this place is just mediocre. The salad bar was ok. Pumpkin bread was EXCELLENT! My dad ordered lobster stuffed haddock and said it was just ok, that he'd had better. I ordered crab cakes. They... More
