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!
