Fox's Lobster House offers great views of the lighthouse and sea, however, the food was only OK. We had a Lobster Roll and a Fishwich, both fresh, but just lacking something to make them special. Not the best lobster experienced during our New England trip. Would definitely pop in again if in the area, but wouldn't make a special trip... More

It's annoying to wind around the roads when you're hungry only to find the restaurant is closed for the season. Especially when you checked first and the website said it was open! 😡 Lame!

We had not been planning to go to this restaurant, but it had the freshest lobster I've ever tasted. There's a beautiful walk onto the rocks overlooking the water and a lighthouse there. This is a must stop if you are in this area. If I ever had the chance to return there I would definitely go back there

Had a really enjoyable late lunch at Fox's. Fantastic lobster and the views of the lighthouse and the ocean were awesome. Very, very relaxing time.

I loved the view from this restaurant it was amazing!! The Lobster rolls were just average for me. I enjoyed the ones in Portland more, but definitely a romantic setting.

Love this place. Great seafood with the best view of the Nubble lighthouse ever. Their onion rings are to die for.

Don't you just love when your anticipation of eating something turns out to be as good as hoped. Me too and that was the case with the blueberry ice cream (whatever other possible flavor should you order when you're leaving Maine?!). It's a nice place to sit out and eat but we didn't have time as we were on our... More

We sat outside in their picnic area to eat a snack while gazing at the lighthouse. They have the most delicious maple walnut ice cream.
