Description: 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!

I should begin by saying that Warren's salad bar is one of the best I've seen. If you can't find something at the salad bar that you like, you're pretty fussy! That said, we've dined at Warren's a number of times over the years and the food from the menu seems not to be as good as it had been... More

Thank you for your kind comments about our 60+ item salad bar! However, we are disappointed to hear that your wife was not satisfied with her choices. We are always willing to replace any item a guest finds less than satisfactory if we are made aware during the visit. More

Just 65 miles (1 1/2) hours north of Boston up Rt. 95 towards Maine is a great seafood place. This restaurant sits on the waters edge with nice views of the water and boats. The food is wonderful and plentiful and the service is excellent considering the fairly large size and always busy. There is a variety of seating which... More

Warren's is plain vanilla for atmosphere (although it is waterfront) but the lobster could not be fresher or better prepared. These are the lobster pros. The salad bar is bountiful and the service excellent and friendly. If you want lobster in a no frills atmosphere, this is the plsce.

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

A waterside seafood place. Salad bar, lots of windows, loons outside. Great lobster bisque, lobster too, check the fish, not all local, a lot of charm, you'll probably neither be swept off your feet nor displeased - quite satsifactory
