“Good eats”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

If you like lobster be sure to try Nunans. It was recommended to us by several locals. It is a little out of the way but that ensure that not all the tourists will know about it. Many locals there when we were. First time I've had soft shell lobster and I thought it to be sweeter than the hard shell and way easier to eat.

“Just Lobster!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

If you are looking for just steamed, nothing fancy lobster, this is the place. Classic Maine lobster at picnic benches with home-made blueberry pie. Friendly service. Very reasonable price.

“No frills dining”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

No frills dining sums it up. Lobster shack with basic seating and little ambiance. Ordered lobster dinner, served 2 dill pickle slices, small bag chips, small roll and a small lobster for $22. Hubby got a small lobster roll with chips and pickles for $13. Both of us walked away hungry after spending over $40 (with tip).

“Great food in a casual atmosphere”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

This place is bare bones. Picnic tables, metal trays, etc. But the lobster is great. It's somewhat pricey, though, compared to other places in town. That said, the rest of the menu is cheap...especially the beer. And the desert is fantastic!

“Atmospheric but expensive”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Our first lobster shack experience in Maine. Read many positive reviews and decided to try Nunan's Lobster. Was seated promptly and received friendly and quick service throughout meal.

Tried fresh softshell lobster and a lobster roll - both tasted very fresh and presented well.

Did not like "rules" extra charges for sharing larger lobster servings. After eating at several other lobster huts/shacks/pounds on Maine coast realized that prices at Nunan's are reasonably high and versus similar style places in BoothBay Harbor nearly twice the price.
