I am cognizant of the fact we are in a tourist area in the middle of the summer.I ordered a clam basket with onion rings and the cost was $26 .I thought the clams were ok but the onion rings were barely cooked.The amount was marginal for the price.There are unquestionably better places in york for less money or you...

Excellent seafood with a view of Nubble Lighthouse.A bit crowded in the summer months but the food is excellent and the lines move quickly.

Chose to have dinner at Foster's Lobster house, despite a warning to beware, because of Nubble Lighthouse next door. My Lobster Bake with bread crumbs was decent but the spouse was disappointed with her Lobster Mac 'N' Cheese. Dry and not enough cheese. Great views, though.

We have been to Fox's many times and it never disappoints. Food is amazing, views are stunning and staff are friendly and accommodating. We went with the Twin Lobster meal this time and it was delicious. Cant wait to go back again.

I've never had a bad haddock sandwich, and I have had plenty and all over New England. This was the worst. Smelled of ammonia, so it was going bad. I assumed it was fresh, I mean really, this place over looks the ocean ! We've been coming here for years. Usually get a lobster roll. The onion rings are good.... More

All are worth the price! I'm not sure why I never wrote a review for Fox's before. We've been going there for quite some time! We love Maine and no visit would be complete without a trip or two or more to Fox's! The staff is amazing! They are friendly and welcoming ! The view is just as you'd picture... More

First off I hate when people come to Maine and don't eat seafood. Why go to a seafood restaurant and order burgers and fries ? I know it's on the menu but come on that's what Burger King is for. I love steamers,scallops,clams and lobster! The lobster mac & cheese is amazing! Big chunks of lobster in every bite. The... More

The waitress was lovely and very attentive. The food was a average to poor. The lazy man lobster came out swimming in an oily mess. The fried platter was not crispy. Won't be back despite the view of the lighthouse.

We were a group of 8 and arrived around 4 to beat the dinner rush on a Monday. We were seated right away and had a fantasic view of the ocean and Nubble Lighthouse. Waitress was quick and gave good beer recommendations. We had boiled lobster, lobster roll and lobster sandwich which was all great. Kids menu offers non-seafood meals... More

We found the steamed lobster, corn on the cob and steamers EXCELLENT at this bustling seaside restaurant. We chose to sit inside - the outside tables seemed a bit "out of the way". Our food was excellent. Skip the "blueberry" beer they have on tap. Order dessert from their outside ice cream window. Perfect topper to a wonderful lobster meal.... More
