Good food, open kitchen and some great staff (Nick is my favorite). I really like their lobster rolls and they have this Key west shrimp salad that is delicious. In the summer, we often steer clear! Young staff come from college to run the host area. I get that they are busy but the chaos, especially on the weekends is... More

Our B&B innkeeper directed us to Robinson's Wharf, one of a few restaurants still open in late October. She told us about a lobster special but when we arrived it was even better than we could have hoped for. The place was full so we ate at the bar. What a fun experience! The bartender was friendly and funny, and... More

We enjoyed fabulous Champagne Lobster in this casual marina-like atmosphere. What a fun way to spend a chilly Sunday afternoon. The Lobster tasted as if it had just jumped from the water to my plate... fresh and fantastic and reasonably priced. We enjoyed lobster dishes all over Maine- this was the best. If you are in the Boothbay area, don't... More

The usual practice for those of us with houses on the island is to avoid the place during summer season. There is no way any restaurant could handle the crowds - even if you could find a parking space. It's that busy. This year was no different, though there was an addition of a seasoned manager who left another establishment... More

More wonderful than the restaurant and view is the take out market. Fresh, local seafood. Mostly enjoyed the lobsters ($4.50/lb and steamed) and halibut. Best kept secret in the area and worth the drive over the "swinging" bridge.

A very casual place with wonderful lobster dinner choices. We enjoyed the service and staff personalities and the food was very good. Located away from the main Boothbay Harbor gave us an opportunity to visit another part of the area.

The parking lot was full and that's a good sign. We were able to be seated right away and it wasn't long after we placed our order that our food came. I had a delicious seafood platter. The scallops were so tender and everything was in crumbs and fried. Not greasy at all. My husband and I had their delicious... More

While staying at the Ocean Gate Resort this restaurant was the closest option. Had a wonderful meal of double lobsters with corn. The Lobsters were soft shell so they were easy to crack and suck out the tender meat. Everyone was very satisfied with their dinner choices and the cost was very reasonable compared to some of the restaurant choices... More

We always stay in the Boothbay Harbor area when in Maine. For the past 4 years we have been going to Robinson's Warf for lobster. Yes, we have tried other places for lobster but Robinson's is always the best. Fresh, sweet and best prices. 1lb each twin lobsters for $20.00. They come with cole slaw and corn. Most places it...

Always busy this little working harbor restaurant has very good food. You couldn't get fresher lobster as it comes in daily right off the boats. This is also a nice place to just stop and have a cold one and maybe just an appetizer. It has a gift shop right next door that is part of Robinson's Wharf but it... More
