Restaurant was recommended by a waitress at a pub in Portsmouth. Group of six of us were looking for lobster and no one was disappointed. A bit pricey but good value, and a fantastic salad bar is included.

Warren's Lobster House is obviously a local icon. It came highly recommend by some friends from the area. Food was good, service was good. I personally found the food extremely over priced. $35 for a lobster roll seems a bit over priced.

Thanks for your positive comments. Regarding prices; you forgot to mention that the price included 6 oz of lobster meat (equivalent to amount found in a 2lb lobster) a side and our 70 item salad bar ($12.50 if ordered by itself). All pricing is competitive with other area restaurants. More

Really. If you're coming to Maine, get OUT of Kittery and invest a bit of time to at least get to Ogunquit in the Yorks where there are some wonderful places to eat. Everything about Warrens reeks of a tourist focused eatery at Wisconsin Dells (nothing against the Dells). The building is very sad, the staff was surly (we arrived... More

Remember when the salad bar was all that? Welcome to Warren's Lobster House! This place popped up as one of the top places in Kittery for the Lobster Roll, well it was delicious but the additional salad bar took me back to my childhood! No it's not fancy, it's simply an old fashioned salad bar with cottage cheese of course.... More

They have the best Lobster roll I've ever eaten and trust me, I've eaten plenty of lobster rolls. Just the right amount of "sauce" to keep it together but it's the flavor - the lobster is sweet, maybe there is lemon, maybe there is something like magic or love or both that makes it taste like heaven but it's so...

We stopped here for dinner as we passed thru Kittery. We were seated by window with view of the water. So pretty! Our personable waitress greeted us and took our drink orders and menus. I chose stuffed lobster(awesome) and my husband chose shrimp cocktail(wow) and Warrens famous lobster / clam chowder(very good). Their famous salad bar was enjoyable and fresh.... More

Best Salad Bar ever!!! I had Salmon Tips AuGratin, delicious 😋. The Salmon truthfully melted with the cheese 🧀 in my mouth 👄. My wife had Imperial Haddock which comes with Hollandase Sauce. Both dishes were a Gastronomic Delight... The Dinning room is huge and booths very comfortable. Booths have ba water 💦 view.. We always stop here for lunch... More

We went just for the lobster but left with bellies full from all the extras they provide when you purchase a meal. My toddler LOVED the black bean soup so much I had to get another bowl for myself since she ate it all. The Lobster was fresh and delicious and I even had room for the pumpkin bread everyone...

One of our first dates was to Warren's 29 years ago. Loved it then, love it now. The salad bar is the best. It has been updated over the years and the they have kept the variety and quality high throughout. Try the pumpkin bread and I dare you to not buy a loaf on the way out. Delish.....
