My husband and I ate dinner here while on vacation. We decided to go for an early dinner so it wasn't that busy but if you are waiting till later in the afternoon/evening or on the weekend it would probably be best to call for reservations. The food was very fresh and tasty, the service was top-notch, and the prices... More

We had read review on TripAdvisor and decided that this was a great place for dinner. We were very happy we did. This place has a spectacular view of the bay and was packed! It isn't very big but it is well laid out. The four of us had seafood for dinner. Each entree was fresh and well prepared -... More

A little on the pricier side, but well worth it. From the lobster mac'n cheese to the seafood dinner, oh I could just go on and on. I don't see how anyone could come away disappointed. The food and all the staff were great. Definitely one of the best places to eat in Belfast. There is also a great view... More

We went to the Nautilus looking for lobster. The waitperson was very nice but the restaurant policies leave a bit to be desired. We wanted to share the two lobster offering on the menu. We were told to do so would entail a $12 plate charge- a bit steep. We opted to do a take-out dinner. When we returned to... More

My wife and I ate there on a Monday night and the restaurant was still quite busy. We sat out on the patio overlooking the bay, great start to the night. I started with the BBQ Pork Potato Skins, delicious. We ordered the Sweet Thai chili stir fry with chicken on rice and the Smoked chicken and pesto pasta which... More

We were camping in the area and wanted to have a good dinner. We sat on the deck with a beautiful view of the bay. The wait staff was very friendly and the meal was very good.

We stopped here mostly because it was just a short distance from our motel on Route 1. It was Fathers Day, late in the evening, and most of the crowd had gone. The waitress was still pleasant and they still had almost all of the specials advertised for that busy day. We had the ribs, which were gooey and delicious.... More

There have been several different restaurants in this location but The Nautilus finally got it right! The location is beautiful right on the Penobscot Bay. The service is always friendly and professional and the ambiance is lovely but not stuffy. We have had many different dishes here and all have been good but the seafood pot pie is especially delicious.... More
