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 agree with previous reviews stating overpriced lobsters. I was expecting something more reasonable since we are in Maine. $50 for Twin lobster dinner with sides and salad buffet. The salad buffet was fresh and very good. I don't think I would go back. Anyone could have gotten a lobster at Red Lobster in Florida for the same price only... More

Looking for overpriced lobster? Look no further than Warrens. $30 for a lobster roll and it wasn't that good. Salad bar is fairly well stocked and the pumpkin bread that goes with it is excellent. There are way too many places in Portsmouth right over the boarder that are better.

Thanks for the positive. However, what you failed to mention about the JUMBO lobster roll is that it contains 6 oz of lobster meat ( same amount in a 1 1/2 lb lobster - current price $31.95), Salad Bar ($ 12 if ordered alone), and your choice of veggie or potato (in other words-a complete meal). Our 1/4 lb lobster... More

Nope same owners for past 31 years. Sorry you did not enjoy your visit. We have not changed our portion sizes so not sure how to respond to that comment. Many, many customers have requested that we provide a tip guide on the check so we do ( as many restaurants now do). BUT it is only a SUGGESTED guide... More

Found a coupon online for lunch. We ordered lobster roll, chowder and salad bar. Salad bar was the best part of the meal. Lobster roll just wasn't that good. Just spent a week in Maine eating lobster. So maybe that was why. Service was good and place was clean.
