Don't miss dinner at this restaurant! The lobster was fabulous. Waitress was pleasant. Quaint, New England ambiance! Totally recommend. A not-to-miss locale if going to Kennebunkport!

If you love lobster and want the true maine experience then, short of catching it yourself, this is the place.This local family owned landmark is the real deal.... tin trays , big bibs, lots of " buttah" and the freshest lobster caught locally. As their website says, "We catch'em We cook'em We crack'em You eat'em !"

While our family has been coming to Nunan's for less years than some, our 35 year history of almost always pleasant visits gives us a lengthy perspective on this special restaurant. Recent visits have shown decreasing quality and gradually worsening service. Last year's bad experience almost caused us to start going to Mabel's. I was so mad that desert was... More

Had driven from Kennebunk on recommendation of lobster fisherman and it didn't disappoint! Lobster was very fresh and small chowder was quite large and quite good!

This place has been in business since 1953 serving lobsters right from the boat - they know how to do it! It is an original lobster shack. The place is quaint and CLEAN. Don't expect anything fried - they don't do fried - just boiled lobster, lobster rolls, lobster stew - and for those who have partners or kids that... More

My fiancé and I enjoyed a fantastic meal at this beautiful establishment. The lobster rolls are terrific and the blueberry pie is second-to-none (sorry, Grandma!). Also, be sure to try the root beer pop!

Situated within a couple of miles of central Kennebunkport, Nunan's is a family owned and operated lobster restaurant extraordinary. Literally, we have never eaten better lobster's anywhere! As far as we can tell, even the waiters/waitresses are are Nunans. Rustic. Attentive service. We never miss a dinner at Nunans when we visit Kennbunckport.

There is No Air Conditioning at the restaurant. My only complaint! Now...don't let that discourage you from visiting this wonderful family owned establishment! The Maine Lobsters are huge, fresh, and priced accordingly! Also, save room for their Homemade Blueberry Pie! Staff was very friendly and the location is great with plenty of parking. If you want Lobster this is the... More

This is only our second time, butbinwould come back again and again. Lobsters are cooked perfectly. Lots of gooey cream in the head which are delicious. We opted for larger 2 pounders. Wish I did a 3 lb. Half the price of Boston and double the yummy-ness. Their shrimp cocktail are also superb. Cooked but looks a little translucent, fresh,... More
