“Quirky, but oh so good (only lobsters served)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

On our trip, our first night in Maine, we wanted lobsters and that is just what we got. We did not want frills and we did not want to pay $50++ for lobster in a fancy restaurant. On a Thursday night, the small place was packed with locals and tourists, all eating lobster. That night, their special was 2 lobsters for $26 (per individual). When it is that good, that's the only thing you need. They did serve it with a roll, small bag of potato chips and pickles. How strange! But, if you want lobster and a lot of it, this is the place to be, at least in or near Kennebunkport.

“It's Just a Lobster Shack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Nunan's does one thing - it boils lobsters and sells them in season. No bargains here - lobsters are priced competitively for the area and they come with nothing but pickles and potato chips. Order a baked potato for a few dollars more and maybe a bottle of beer and you have a juicy, messy meal worthy of Nunan's picnic tables and back wall sink for washing up. Come here if you want lobster. Go anywhere else if you want dining, atmosphere, good wine, pleasant staff, etc., etc.

If you want lobster, this is your place! Great food and great service and at a price that won't break the bank.

“Lobstered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Ate the meal with mainly locals so no loud mouthed tourists around. The service and staff are excellant and the atmoshere whacky. The lobster was cooked OK but wasnt worth all the fiddling around with bibs and claw crackers. However will go again to give Nunan another go around.

“Funny little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Was pleasantly surprised to find that Nunan's have added hamburgers and veggie burgers to their menu. This was great as not everyone in our party eats 'lobsta'.
