Looking for an authentic, non-pretentious, local lobster shack? Nunan's fits the bill exactly. It's not on the water, not new (open since the 1950's) or full of atmosphere, and doesn't have real comfortable seating (benches). But what it excels at is real good lobster at real good prices. The special for the night was a 2- 1 1/8 lobster dinner for $26. Service is good and food arrives quickly. Nothing is fancy here but the food is certainly worth the visit. They don't take credit cards but there is an ATM out front.

Whenever we arrive in Kennebunkport each year, Nunan's is our first stop for dining. We have NEVER been disappointed with the quality of food and service. What we also appreciate is the nice choice of wines at very reasonable prices . And, if the bottle of wine is not finished, the staff will package it for traveling.
Just love the place!

The quintessential Maine lobster pound with great lobster and great steamers at a great price! A must-see in KB!

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.

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.
