Martha Stewart is back on the Seacoast has given her approval of two Kittery restaurants owned by a friend.

The 80-year-old wrote on her Instagram account that Robert's Maine Grille on northbound Route 1 and Bob's Clam Hut on the southbound side are "two great suggestions for a meal or two"

She posted pictures of the fish market and a cabinet with caps and T-shirts inside Robert's plus the exterior of each.

Stewart enjoyed the waterfront view from both the inside and outside of Robert's. She called Bob's a "popular lobster pound" which is crowded where you can get "where you can get lobster rolls, fried clams, and fish and chips. Ultra fresh. Very delicious!!!"

Bob's was sold by longtime owner Michael Landgarten in 2020 to First Serve Hospitality Group, according to Mainebiz. The same company bought Robert's in 2016.

It would not be Stewart's first visit to Bob's. She has visited in 2018 and  in July, 2020 according to Bob's Facebook page where she posed for pictures with the staff and other visitors.

On her own website Stewart wrote that she enjoys the seafood combination platters that include clam strips, oysters, shrimp, and calamari.

Stewart was apparently spending the Labor Day Weekend in Maine at her Skylands summer home as she also posted pictures of croissants from Standard Baking in Portland, a hike at Acadia National Park and a visit ti Snug Harbor Farm in Kennebunkport.

Stewart's other Seacoast connection is Chef Julie Cutting, owner of the Cure Restaurant in Portsmouth. Cutting competed on Stewart's Food Channel program Chopped in May which is taped in Kennebunkport.

Elizabeth Dinan was first to tweet about Stewart's visit.
