Kittery is a Maine-themed restaurant. We know this because Kittery is a city in Maine, and the bathroom wall here is covered in Maine license plates. There are also nautical flags and other maritime-related things on the walls, and they put lobster on their signature burger. The menu is pretty long, but mostly you should just come here to eat a lobster roll and some oysters while you have a drink on the patio. They do a Happy Hour from 5-7pm every day except Monday, when it’s Happy Hour all night.
