Robert's Maine Grill
Last week I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting with Deb over at Robert's Maine Grill in the heart of the Outlets in Kittery, Maine. While the space has been there since 2005, this was the first time I had been upstairs to fully enjoy what they have to offer.
When my clients come to me asking for a New England Style Rehearsal Dinner, my first thought is immediately a lobster bake! You can't get more "New England" than that! Usually then we end up talking about an outdoor venue, tenting, catering, rentals, etc. They either love it or hate it. I am so excited that now I can offer them an indoor, private space for a lobster bake. Upstairs at Roberts you get a fantastic view of the water and more fish than you could ever eat. It is Maine at it's best...classic, local and fresh.
The day I visited was your typical New England overcast day, but not inside the Grill. The large windows, pale paint and dark wood tables create the perfect atmosphere. It has a very clean, modern feel to it, however the artwork that covers the walls not only completes the New England experience, they tell a story of the behind-the-scenes details making Robert's...well...Robert's! Coming from someone who loves to bring in specialty rentals, I can honestly say, in this space you don't need to. Linens would hide the character of the tables as well as the combination of the on-site chairs they offer.
Deb is the on-site Event Director and she couldn't be better suited for the job. She has worked at Robert's since it opened it's doors and done everything from hosting to waitressing to managing. Now she gets to sit down with each client and customize their menu and feel for their party. This space is perfect for any type of event really - Anniversary, Birthday, Rehearsal Dinner, Shower...you name it, and you can create it!
Thanks Deb for introducing us to your space and we can't wait to work together with you!
