Throw back to the old lobster pounds. Not fancy but this home owned and operated "hut" serves fresh lobster and puts the fancy Boston eateries to shame for the signature meals. Great value. Lots of fun. Only in Kennebunkport for 3 nights and plan to return for one more meal. Only serving from 5 til 9 but stayed until last... More

My husband and I have been to the Kennebunkport area many times over the years on the way to Downeast Maine. Way back in 2007, we discovered this little place that had great lobster dinners (and a few meat/potato choices for the non-seafood people), but we discovered it by accident, and didn't pay enough attention to the name/place. FINALLY, after... More

Nothing fancy here. Lobster, great slaw, fair prices and homemade blueberry pie for dessert. Of course there are a few other things on the menu( PB and J) for the kids and lobster rolls. The owner goes out at 5 am and catches the lobster ( can't get any more fresh tan that!). A must visit for a true Maine... More

Nunan's is a charming place. It is situated in quaint Cape Porpoise, in a surprisingly large hut furnished with fishing equipment. Two members of our party had lobster and found it most enjoyable. There are other items on the menu as well, like steak, burgers, and PB&J sandwiches. We didn't try desserts but they look good. It's quite a busy... More

This is a laid back lobster house. Nothing fancy but very good chowder, lobster rolls and perfectly cooked lobsters. Also good root beer.

This is a great place to eat! Two fresh lobsters for $25! It's got a bit of a rustic feel, yet very clean and wonderful service. I'll be back for sure!

The first place we ate in Kennebunkport was Nunan's. It was so good, we made sure it was our last as well! The food is so fresh, and isn't that just the whole point? Super friendly staff, simple menu, perfect food. Seriously, can't wait to go back!

Nunan's is a well-known entity in the K'port area, so you must go during your visit. Inside decor is authentic "coastal Maine". They do not take reservations so be prepared to wait a bit, even if you arrive when they open at 5pm. They do a good job seating people as quickly as possible and it helps if you can... More

We were recommended Nunan's by our Airbnb host. It was very busy but as a couple we waited less than 5 minutes. We received great advice from our waitress Stephanie on how to eat the lobster like a local - make as much mess as you want. It was great. A little odd having it served with crisps. We had... More
