For over 15 years and several times a year when we traveled to Maine we made a point to dine at Warren's. This past Memorial weekend was no exception. They have a valet service which we have used in the past, but when we arrived on Friday night we were astonished to see parking was available without the use of... More

We stopped at Warren's after a day at the beach. My husband has eaten here several times, and always raved about it, but it was my first time. It did not disappoint. The salad bar has more items than you can imagine, and everything was fresh. Lettuce was crisp and very clearly had been washed (I have been to many... More

Warrens has always had adequate service at best. It's strength was always reasonable prices, large portions, and location. The prices have skyrocketed while portions have shrunk. Along with the barely adequate service by a staff that obviously would rather be somewhere else and the outrageous prices this is no longer worth the trip. Time to find another place in the... More

We are gratified that you rated our food at a 4. We have always been known for our service so are mystified by your comment that "service has always been adequate at best"?? Our prices are competitive with other similar area restaurants. More

My family ate at Warren's several times a year when I was a kid. We stopped for lobster every time we drove through Kittery headed for Portland. It was GREAT! Now, though, the menu is loaded with fried food, boring sides, and overworked wait staff. I had twin small lobsters (chicken lobsters), and they were good, but my gluten-free needs... More

We stopped in for lunch while on our annual trip to Maine. This has become a must dine place for us. Shantal provided excellent service and attention to details ( we have some food allergies). Portion sizes are generous and just right. Their Clam Chowder is wonderful. The Lobster Rolls...well...we were bad...had TWO they were SO SO good. Not full... More

The salad bar was amazing, so many choices and everything I tried was wonderful. I had the fried clams strips for lunch. They were the best fried clams I've ever eaten. Being from the Mid-West we don't have the opportunity to eat fresh seafood. I would definitely return.

Food was pathetic. I have better salad bars in grocery stores. Bean soup was like wall paper paste with bean mush taste & consistency. Seafood casserole need overwhelming amount of lemon to correct for fishiness and buttered crumbs were only on the bottom. Skyrocket Lobster prices due to a
