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!

As promised to myself I turned my back to WPF just up Route 1 for reasons detailed in my reviews of that establishment. I was hoping to find another favorite place at Robert's. Let's say that I may have to continue looking. Probably because of the hordes of people who visit the Kittery discount malls, restaurants around that area feel... More

Robert's is situated in the middle of an outlet haven so it's convenient for lunch or dinner after you've walked through miles of retail stores. The food is always reliably good and, of course, the seafood dishes are the best. The waitstaff are always professional, prompt, and friendly and prices are very fair. If you're going for dinner you might... More

OMG, best fish dish I've had in a long long time. Right here in Kittery, Maine! Please travelers and diners, do yourselves a favor and have lunch or dinner at Robert's. And Seacoast locals, if you haven't been, you're missing out on one the best restaurants between Boston and Portland. Really.

You don't expect a restaurant right on the outlet mall strip to have great food - but Robert's does. We were a party of six and each one of us raved about the food. One, a world traveler who goes to a lot of restaurants, said that the mussels were the best he had ever had anywhere. Our waitress, Megan,... More

We were in Portsmouth celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We drove to Roberts for lunch based on TripAdvisor reviews. From the moment we pulled in the parking lot we were warmly welcomed by the valet. We were seated upstairs and had a peaceful water view.
