More than just seafood

Food is excellently prepared, service fast but unobtrusive, and prices reasonable. We first visited Nautilus several years ago and it was just OK but it's much better now. I think they hired a new chef. I recently had the chicken portabella which was yummy and my husband had the burger which he... read more

We went here with friends and had a very positive experience. Our server was friendly and very helpful when we had questions about entrees and drinks. Among our orders were some house specialties, including seafood provencal and shrimp scampi. Both were very good. The corn bread that came with our meals was delicious. Draft beer was a bit expensive at... More

I've never had a bad meal at Nautilus. Their plating is simple, not superfluous. The lobster mac and cheese and seafood pie are hard to beat. And the coconut cream pie has a wonderful fresh coconut flavor, creamy and rich.

Food was good, prime rib generous and tender. Staff friendly. Overpriced for the area especially off season Wish they had more early bird specials for the seniors. Friday and Saturday dinner hour after 6 gets heavy with bar customers rather than diners, nicer quieter atmosphere mid week..

I've eaten here twice while I've been living in Belfast. The first time I had the seafood combo platter and it was beyond delicious! I ate every bit of the meal, and we were able to set out on the deck which was extremely nice. Our waitress for this meal wasn't very good but she still took okay care of... More

We found this place by chance, just driving past and thought we'd give it a try. So glad we did. The start is the view, it's just beautiful, would have so loved to sit there but it was a damp day so....The food made up for the damp day! Lovely menu, served by such a lovely server who clearly enjoys... More

We ate late so we were not able to enjoy the view but we did enjoy the service and food. I tried the seafood pie and found it to be loaded with seafood. My wife was very pleased with her seafood chowder and scallops. We would recommend this restaurant and would eat there again.

Nautilus just outside of East Belfast on route 1 is a real seafood restaurant. Very close to the Yankee Clipper Motel. Great and attentive waiter. We dined there twice, one with lobsters only, they were GOOD and one time with steak, could not be better.
