Description: Established in 1956 on busy Route One long before that stretch became bustling and busy with Kittery's outlet shops, Bob’s was the locals' golden fried standard. Now Bob's is a favorite spot for locals and travelers alike. We hear it from our guests: no trip to Maine is complete without a meal at Bob's Clam Hut.Bob's is committed to serving traditional Maine fried seafood with straightforward simplicity. Our clams are always fresh, which means daily deliveries--we're too small to store more than that anyway. We use "specials," which are clams hand-selected for consistent size and quality. We follow the original Bob's recipes, including the famous tartar sauce. Customer favorites include Bob's New England Clam Chowder, Lobster Stew, the traditional Bob's fried clams, and the Lillian fried clams. The volume of fryolator oil we go through amazes our suppliers--our oil cleanliness standards are second to none. Our staff uses the same cook-to-order system that Bob and his family developed way back when the Clam Hut first opened.Open for lunch and dinner year round from 11:00.

Our first stop on our Maine road trip and of course, we had to try the fried clams. These were hot, tasty and hit the spot perfectly. Meal was finished off with a scoop of Mount Desert Island ice cream. An all-around great treat!

Always stop here when we visit Kittery, best clams, chowder, lobster rolls, everything is great.
Roadside stand so you stand in line to order and maybe you can grab a table inside or a stool
at the counter, that is a drawback, always crowded but worth it!

This is how Maine is supposed to be. No frills, great food, and a great price. We always stop here and are never disappointed.
