We came across this shack on our college tour trip last summer. This is the one to go to to experience a quintessential lobster shack experience. In business for over 60 years, you know they are doing something right. This longevity builds family, community and character and it shines as the walls are adorned with business cards from all over... More

I'm local and have eaten here countless times thru the decades. Every restaurant in Maine has lobster on their menu. But in the Kennebunkport area, this is where you go for the real deal. They have their own lobster boats so you won't get a fresher lobster. Atmosphere is very basic, very Maine. You sit on a bench and "dine"... More

This really is a hut with long tables and benches for communal-style seating. There usually are wait times in the summer and fall when the restaurant is open. However, if you want Maine Lobster done right, this is the place. Supposedly they store their lobster in seaweed which preserves the freshness of the lobsters. Also, the lobster served at Nunan's...

Loved this place! We got our lobsters to go and saved some cash. We ate them at a local beach-picnic style. Their clam chowder is delicious too!

Basic restaurant - simple menu. Lobsters were very good. Clam chowder was good. Prawn cocktail was not the best I've had.

Open only in the evening, the lobsters and other seafood is always fresh and this shows in the taste. Well worth the trip to feast on this.

So lucky to have made it to Nunan's on the last night of service for the season. A couple of beers and 2 of the 1 1/8 lb lobsters each--and everything was delicious. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect lobster experience!

We have been going to Maine for 30 years, and I discovered Nunan's many years ago. The food is fantastic, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is the prefect 'old Maine' lobster hut. If you are ever in the Kennebunkport area, don't miss a trip to Nunan's. Beside the lobster, you must try the blueberry pie.

Thank Dwaine H
