We both had a very good meal - I had crab cakes, my husband fish and chips. The food was delish! But the taciturn waiter really put a damper on our enjoyment. I though his tip should go to the hostess -- she took much better care of us than the waiter.

My wife, grand-daughter and I were coming back to our camp in Liberty and it was late. We were very hungry and tired from a day trip to Bar Harbor and had been looking for a place to stop when I spotted the Nautilus. It was about 8:45 and the parking lot was pretty full. A good sign? We had... More

The inside of the restaurant is very nice. The outside dining had a beautiful distant view. The food was very good. I was a little disappointed in the outside dining; the chairs were very uncomfortable (old deck furniture & too big to sit back in) and the deck obviously had not been painted for a couple years? Spider webs and... More

Was in the area for a lecture and decided to have a nice sitdown dinner. After driving the entire section from Belfast to Searsport, the name Nautilus and the lovely location were enough to pull me in. I was quite pleasantly surprised and had to complement the kitchen. My salmon was perfectly cooked, as were the green beans (the vegetable... More

We've been going to the Belfast/Searsport area for almost three decades and we've seen restaurants come and go. We hope that Nautilus will be around for a long time. The food, decor, and service are first rate. I had one of the specials, Trout with a scallop and bacon stuffing in a sage cream sauce that was outstanding. My wife... More

Living in the south you develop a knowledge of good fried green tomatoes. They did 2 better paired it with lobster which is a no brainer in Maine however the kicker is the cream lemoncello sauce. WOW!

I walked in and the decor was far better than anywhere else I've been in Belfast. My sirloin was cooked perfectly and the mashed butternut squash was delicious. Also, can I say best cornbread ever! Definitely worth a setup for dinner.

The food was enjoyable. We've been going to Maine for many years as a family and have been going to Nautilus for the past three. The Ron's Portobello Melt in 2012 and 2013 was delicious (it was in a sandwich form), but this past year was changed to a open pita form and we were not so thrilled.
