I first went to Warrens when I was a kid, back in the Jurassic Period and it really hasn't changed much which is a good thing. The salad bar is without peer as the number of choices is immense, and the salad bar comes with soup and cheese and crackers! I love fresh raw broccoli and they have it along... More

My wife and I went here for lunch on Valentine's Day. We had a window seat overlooking the bay and the food was very good. We got the lobster saute and lobster stuffes haddock, very tasty dishes. Salad bar has lots of options and our overall experience is five star. Great views! Food is a bit pricey but the whole... More

Went to Warrens to take advantage of a great deal. They have a very good salad bar, always have. But the soups were both vegetable, no chowder. Dinner rolls were cold. Entree was disappointing. Seafood bake, which was two medium shrimp with stuffing and two pieces of sole wrapped around stuffing. Overbaked. Didn't have dessert.

Had heard good things about Warren's and finally made it there. Overall it was very good. Seafood Newburg was good. My wife had baked schrod which of course I had to try too. Salad bar makes trip more worth while. Good selections of toppings and side dishes. And yes the pumpkin bread is legit

I visited Warren's along with my family this past Saturday. We were in Maine so of course we were in search of lobster! My boyfriend ordered the daily special of 2lb lobster. He really enjoyed it! The lobsters were huge! I had some tasty clam and lobster chowder with the salad bar. Their salad bar is unlike no other. There... More

This is a great resturant to look over the water and have wonderful lobster. i only have one concern, I hate spiders, really hate spiders, and one came up on the window I was watching the water out of and I left with my tail between my legs.

Yes the place is a step back in time, it never will be more then that. Yes the diners may be older, or mostly tourist, that also is part of the place. The service was friendly and attentive. They often offer promotions which can be seen on their web site. This month is an interesting special of many items for... More

Every year we go to Portsmouth, NH for Memorial Day weekend. We love taking the dog with us as Portsmouth is very dog friendly. We also for some reason head over to Warren's to have our fill of seafood. On some years I would give it a rating of 1-2 out of 5 as the food came out cold and/or... More

Husband had scallops, same silly toast points and dull sauce. Great for tourists that don't know better. Over priced. Some many small seafood places around. I... More
