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!

Nice view of the river and good seafood. The deck area was nice with a cool breeze. The popcorn lobster I had as well as the steamed lobster was as good as you will get.

We've lived in NE since I retired from the service in 1988, and Warren's has been a part of every trip we take up north. ((We time our return to MASS with an early supper at Warren's!) They also have a loyalty program, although it's not needed to get us to return!😊 Suggestion: Arrive early, cause this restaurant has tried... More

The food and service were terrific. The clam chowder had more clams than potatoes, the shrimp trio was delicious, the salad bar had lots of items, and the mango colada superb.

I have eaten here on several occasions and it is consistently very good food, the service, the atmosphere is just right. Not fancy and you can come as you are. The salad buffet is just right and if you don't want anything else off the menu, you can't go wrong with the salad buffet, which includes soup and bread. Talking... More

We had eaten here previously with my parents who were up from FL. They are native New Englanders so they know their seafood and when they come we go out as many times as possible for seafood! The previous time it was great, good portions. This time I got the clam plate and there were probably 8 to 10 clams... More

We are sorry you were disappointed with the portions. You did not specify what entrees your parents ordered so can't comment. We have not changed portion sizes so don't know what else to say. More

This establishment relies on its longevity and past reputation. It's good as a family restaurant, but I can't go much further than that. It's convenient, yes, but travel back into downtown Portsmouth and try some of their lobster restaurants where they are taking pride in what they're serving. The service can be hit or miss.

If you want really great seafood in a real deal New England setting, this is it. The salad bar is huge and has tons of choices including the best coleslaw ever (no sugar and globs of mayo). I had the baked scrod and it was perfect. My friend had the fried scallop & clam plate. Let me say this, I... More
