Description: When we opened Robert’s in June 2006, we had a certain idea: we could do a version of the big Maine seafood restaurant that was rooted in the tradition of these places, but also inspired by up-to-date food trends like local farm-to-table ingredients and more creative recipes. Owner Michael Landgarten had long been a fan, patron, and student of these large all-purpose (seafood-centric but not exclusively seafood) Maine restaurants.Traditionally, coastal Maine seafood restaurants focus on a large, seafood-centered menu featuring steamed lobster, baked and fried seafood, steaks, burgers, and have a bar, and usually some outside dining. We liked this notion for Robert’s, but wanted it to be a “now” experience – about the best of Maine food. In the Midcoast region, the farm-to-table movement had started long before there was that name for it. Back-to-the landers there started restaurants that sourced directly from local fisherman and farmers.We’re still searching for that ideal blend of traditional Maine, farm-to-table, and what’s best and real in new cuisine. Mostly though, we are guided by our purpose – to make guests happy!

My wife and I visited Robert's for the first time and found the food to be some of the best I've had the pleasure to eat. Large choice raw bar we ordered baker's dozen oysters on half shell. Salad for two, and 2 1.5 lb boiled lobsters. We had local brewed blueberry beer and a half portion of desert. When... More

We go to Robert's at least 5-6 times a year. We love the fact that they use local seafood and produce when possible. The seafood is always fresh and delicious tasting. The service is attentive and friendly. We really like that the menu changes - good to mix things up and keep it fresh. If you are in the area,... More

When in the Portsmouth NH / Kittery ME area we make a stop here a must. And always a sucker for the fried clam dinner plate. Cannot resit. Fresh and hot and lightly battered, a near perfect fried clam. That combined with a local draft beer, and sitting on the second floor terrace makes for a perfect afternoon. But be... More

My husband and I try to get to Maine every September and we always stop at Robert's. The food is incredible, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the service is wonderful. We stopped there on Sunday and I had seared scallops, a margarita, and triple chocolate cake. Excellent! The perfect way to start our trip up the coast.

My husband and I travel to Maine for our anniversary most years. We love Roberts. They made lobster salad with either mayo or plain with drawn butter. My husband is a mayo guy and I like it plain. Not many places offer that option.

We were here the long week-end in September and loved the atmosphere, service and especially the food. My fiance and I shared the Seafood Platter and it was absolutely delicious.

This restaurant was recommended by one of the shop keepers at the Kittery Mall. It is a light, open feel and has a raw seafood bar, for those who like that sort of thing. The meal was great, but pretty high price (I had the scallop fetuccini alfredo) my friend had the haddock, which she loved also). The raw bar... More

We use the freshest locally sourced ingredients we can find, which does ad a bit to the price. We are also very fortunate to have access to such a wide variety of local delicious smaller farm oysters, they are definitely worth trying. I am disappointed to hear that your service was not all that it should have been. It is... More
