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!

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.

While visiting the area I searched for local restaurants. I'm so glad this one was recommended! I got the lobster mac and cheese, and it was delicious! The service I received was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!

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 love Bob's (see my review there), so visiting Robert's was the obvious choice for a meal while in the area. We loved the atmosphere - both out and in. The food was excellent - exactly what I would expect from the owners. We had the steamers, which were the best I've had because they were flavored perfectly, and fish... 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. We ordered the traditional lobster roll and the lobster sliders which come on buttermilk biscuits.... More

Had a great meal here with my wife when visiting New England from Old England. The market priced whole lobster bake was delicious and well presented by a knowledgable waitress as was my wife's lobster linguini. Good pricing in a non chain seafood restaurant, way way better than Legal, authentic Maine seafood at a great price in a great spot.

Have eaten at Roberts every trip to Maine, have never been disappointed in anything I have ordered. The service can be slow when they are busy. The wait can be long but worth it. The best fried haddock in Maine. The decor is rustic and very warm and cozy. Casual but so Maine.

This is our second time eating here, lunch both times and it is fantastic. They seem very busy but we were seated both times immediately. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They have a great beer selection. The lobster rolls are awesome. Service is fast. Great food and great service. We will be back again and again.

Very good food and excellent service. Friendly, casual atmosphere. Some dishes seemed a bit overpriced for the portion (e.g. Short Sands) while others were generous and yummy (Moxie bbq tips). We especially liked being able to get bite-sized desserts (try the chocolate pecan pie!).

We use the freshest locally sourced ingredients we can find, which does ad a bit to the price. Our bite size desserts are a great way to enjoy just a small sweet at the end of your meal.
