“Twin Lobsters and Steamers”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Nunan's is always the first dinner on the list when we visit Maine. Number 2 - Twin Lobster plus an order of Steamers sets the tone for a great visit, every time. Perfectly prepared, friendly service and reasonable prices.

“Off the Boat”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Nunan's has 3 lobster boats that's why it's consistently the best. Like other seafood, freshness matters certainly days and even hours matter. In this part of Maine in the summer you can probably find other places with really fresh lobster, the key being "probably find". Here, for sure, that's what you get.

As other's note, it's just about lobster and if you are really into it (like me) take the Rugosa lobster boat (1 - 11/2) where they pull up traps and tell you interesting stuff about lobsters and lobster fishing.

“Perfect lobster”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

The best lobster in the Kennebunkport area and price is right compared to to some of the other resturants. This place is for the serious lobster lover, no frills and friendly staff. Only disappointment was they only open for dinner.

“The Perfect Lobster Shack”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Perhaps the only thing missing was that it wasn't on the water, but the food was fabulous. The menu is simple. Basically lobster, lobster, lobster. The night we were there you could order 1 lb, 1 1/4 lb, 1 1/2, or 2 lbs and above. The special that night was TWO 1 1/14 lb lobsters for about $25. The lobsters were boiled perfectly, presented beautifully and the claws cracked and the tails split to save us some work.

We don't know why they served potato chips and pickles, but apparently that is a tradition. The baked potato and cole slaw we ordered were really good. We noticed that the menu did have items for seafood aversive people and children. A perfect place for families. Most of the customers were wearing shorts and fit right in.

The servers were really helpful. When we couldn't decide which of two wines to get, the server brought us samples of the two to taste. I noticed that at the next table a server was showing a couple who had never eaten a lobster before what to do. She was patient and pleasant.

The restaurant itself looks and feels like a shack. You will want to take a picture of the restaurant interior and of the lobsters when they are placed on your table Overall a wonderful experience.

“GREAT LOBSTER DINNER IN A GREAT ENVIRONMENT”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We ate here to get that 'authentic' Maine lobster experience and we were not disappointed. The lobster was the best we had while up in the Kennebunkport region and the service was friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is in the area - and prices were really reasonable as well. GREAT PLACE - would highly recommend for a casual and fun dining experience.
