[Kittery, ME] Roberts maine Grill

This was lunch with my long established foody friend and fellow Onion, GretchenS.

Mrs H and I had planned to be in Kittery for the outlet mall shopping (in the event, not a great success, due to the current killer exchange rate, etc). Gretchen had suggested meeting here for lunch. There was much to chat about – we seem to share the same outlook on life, politics, food and, of course, HO.

She’d also suggested what I might eat. Actually, her forum post recounted that it was her friend who enjoyed the haddock reuben. And I can see why – it was lovely. Plenty of fried fish and it’s their own take on a reuben – thinly sliced red cabbage replacing the sauerkraut, for example, Accompanying fries were good. Mrs H ordered the lobster roll – not exactly sure what the bread was but think a slightly crisp brioche. Maybe it was a slightly crisp brioche. Whatever it was, it came stuffed with lobster and mango. It comes with either coleslaw or fries – in the case fries.

Gretchen can tell you of her own lunch. But, in the meantime, let me just say, it looked a winner – mixed leaf salad, topped with a piece of salmon.

I’d had a really nice time. Good food, good company. We really must meet more often than every six years.


I’m so glad you enjoyed Roberts. We always hit them for lunch when we are up in Maine.

A belated response due to my mid-coast Maine vacation. It was a lovely Caesar salad with grilled salmon and I enjoyed it almost as much as the delightful company of my dining companions. Yes, we really must make it more often than every 6 years!
