Very disappointed in the food for the money that is charged. Two of us shared as an appetizer steamers....they were absolutely delicious! BUT 25.00... More

This was my first time in Maine and my in laws took both me and my husband here because they had previously enjoyed this restaurant. What a great restaurant and FANTASTIC view! Wow! Best lobster roll I've had so far. The service was also excellent, with very friendly staff. They have two floor levels of seating inside, and outdoor seating... More

Lazy lobster was tasty. They do the work, you taste the goodness of lobster and butter. Get the window seat if you can. Views are good. We watched the birds, the waves, and the clouds.

The travel up the long winding roads is worth it. Fox's is right next to Nubble Light House so either before or after dinner take your camera and get plenty of shots of the lighthouse. Fox's has a really nice menu that will make the seafood lovers happy as well as those who are not. Love the lobsters, clams, fried... More

An annual family favorite when we visit in this part of Maine. There are many lobster houses, shacks, and restaurants to choose from in the York/Ogunquit area, but it's hard to beat Fox's for the view of the ocean and Nubble lighthouse (BTW, the big mansion on the hill to the left of Fox's .. well, that's mine (I wish))....

We typically go here if they are open, although they do close during most of the off season. The blueberry pie is phenominal! The only complaint I had was the few obnoxious kids that were running wild in the dining area, however, I cannot fault the restaurant for that. We sat at a window with a beautiful view of the...

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!
