Chef Josh Moulton (Union Square Cafe, Monkey Bar) serves seafood inspired by summers in Maine at this Carroll Gardens shack. Look for standards like lobster rolls served with drawn butter and chunky clam chowders, as well as Kittery specialties, including crawfish and whole roasted red snapper. Whitewashed walls decorated with fishing nets and nautical flags plates recall New England fishing towns, as do the selection of Maine beers and the blueberry soda (a classic Pine Tree State beverage) on tap.

As far as happy hour and outdoor space, this place is worth it. They have cheap seafood deals (oysters and clams) and cheap glasses/bottles of wine. I haven't actually had any food here, so I can't review on that, but based on the ambience, it's definitely worth an after-work drink or two!


The two best things about Kittery are the location and the space between the lines.  Or read below:

The Caesar Bloody Mary had chunks of clam and clam juice which is not a pleasant combo.  The strawberry mimosa was pretty much a glass of champagne with zero strawberry flavor.  The side of seasonal berries arrived unripe and I'm fairly certain unwashed.  After sending the un-drinkable Bloody Mary back and exchanging it for a classic one, I didn't have the heart to complain about the berries or the fresh Bloody Mary which was equally foul.

That being said, the servers were very nice and the space is great for sun, fresh air and people watching.  But the next time I want a cold one, I'll opt for the Gowanus Yacht Club across the street.

Came for happy hour before going to Royal Palms Shuffleboard and got a $5 class of red and the crab cakes. The crab cakes had great flavor!! Seems to be an easy place to grab something light. They have an open porch in the front which is probably nice in the summer.

I had the worst dining experience with a friend here. That may have to do with the fact they only had one waiter for the crowded restaurant. We were served oysters that tasted a little off, had to flag our waiter down for every little thing, our check was wrong etc. I had a super mediocre fish n chips here too (screwed up fish and chips at a seafood place? Uh, ok.) Won't be back!
