The surest sign of that summer is on its way to Kennebunkport is the reopening of Nunan’s Lobster Hut! Located in the heart of Cape Porpoise, Nunan’s Lobster Hut has been greeting travelers to the Maine coast for 65 years. And you might have to get your lobster fix from Thursday to Sunday nights between now and Memorial Day Weekend, they then return to their 7-night a week schedule through fall foliage season!
Nunan’s regularly tops the lists of the best places in New England to get lobster, and we know it’s true! One of the reasons that makes Nunan’s Lobster Hut the best place in Maine to get lobster is that their family is up early each morning to haul in the traps. You’ll find their boats heading out from the Cape Porpoise pier and bringing in fresh lobsters to serve up each night. Then you’ll find other members of the family behind the stove or cash register throughout the evening!
The menu at Nunan’s is simple – lobster, lobster, and more lobster. Take it from an expert – the best thing to order is their twin lobster special. Served with chips and a pickle, it’s simple and classic. And to turn the simple lobster dinner into a true New England feast with a bowl of their (gluten free) clam chowder, a side of steamers, and top it off with their blueberry pie – a la mode, of course! Don’t forget to hit the ATM before heading to dinner, because Nunan’s is cash-only. But not to worry – they have an ATM on site if you forget.
So this season, add Nunan’s to your must taste list, and enjoy the best of New England right here in Kennebunkport, Maine.
