Typical, rustic lobster shack that was recommended to us by locals. They have been in business for more than 60 years! Their menu is simple and to the point. It's all about lobster, freshly caught, cooked and cracked. I had two hot-boiled one and one-eighth lobsters for $25.99 (dinner special) and my wife had the lobster roll. We didn't have... More

The reviews brought us there and ,Wow, they were right on. The place is small, super clean, with picnic tables to give you room to maneuver. The standard lobsters are about 1 and 1/4 pounds. They have several specials which other diners chose. You can order larger sizes. I chose a 2 pounder. My wife was happy with her standard... More

We always look forward to going to Nunan's when we are in town. The lobster is wonderful and is reasonably priced. It is our favorite place to eat in Kennebunkport.

This little roadside restaurant is authentic, heart of Maine, down home Lobster Shack. It specializes in delicious steamed lobster in a round metal tray with drawn butter, a roll & a bag of crisps for under $20! The lady who served us was professional and efficient and everyone in the place seemed to be having a good time. Seating is... More

We discovered this place through a recommendation and we're so glad we did. This is a place for simply great lobster and homemade blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream. It doesn't offer much of anything else, well, clam chowder, steamers, etc. but their main stay is lobster. You sit at simple wood tables a get a lobster with a bag... More

We were told this was thee place to get lobster. After waiting 30 minutes for our table, we asked our waitress a few questions and placed the order. She said it would take 20 mins & sure enough 20 mins later our lobsters arrived. I ate the tail first. After a few very tough & chewy bites I almost gave... More

A restaurant that looks like it could hold the town's population several times over and is covered floor to ceiling in lobster paraphernalia. Clam chowder, lobster dinner and apple pie a la mode were all fantastic

This was one of the coolest restaurants we went to while in Maine. We felt like we were in a boat and the place is decorated with lobster memorabilia. The food was great (we got clam chowder and lobster) and not as expensive as other places. Great service, great place, can't wait to go back.

Nunans has been a place we have visited almost every time we have been to Maine - for over 20 years. Family owned and operated, they are hands down the BEST place to get a full lobster - they are hot and fresh, and cracked in just the right places to you can get down to enjoying right away!
