Ideal setting

I went with three others and we all were pleased. The one who ordered scallops was especially happy. I had half a spinach salad and had to share it due to its size. I had never had lobster macaroni and cheese which is a speciality of this restaurant so I ordered the appetizer-size and it was... read more

Wonderful seafood! The baked stuffed haddock was so delicious! Glad we made the short drive north of Camden to go here.

Me and my family and a family guest decided to dine at this restaurant. The room are dark and as soon as we sat down, i've felt mosquito bite not only me but to all of us. Never been to an indoor restaurant that we have to fight for mosquito. We did mentioned to the hostes and she said she... More

I ate at the Nautilus when it first opened and found it lacking. So, as it has been a while, went back with same friends I had dined with there before. So, what was different? Well, you did get two sides with your entrée plus they did give you rolls (3) and cornbread (3) for the four of us. Waitress... More

I had seafood combo -grilled scallops, grilled haddock, fried clams, fried shrimp. Everything was cooked to perfection! Clams were lightly breaded, just the way I like them, scallops were tender, fish and shrimp were also excellent. Nice place, good service ( waitress had a large party as well as other tables, we saw her literally running to get food out... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the deck enjoying the view of the bay. Food was good, beer on tap was nice, service was very good. Highly recommend it if in the area.

What's not to like at Nautilus? The atmosphere is beautiful, the staff is beyond friendly and accomodating and most importantly, the food is tasty and well prepared. I often have the seafood pie and it is packed with scallops, shrimp and fish in a creamy but not overly rich white cream sauce flavored with wine- all this in a flaky... More

We were hoping to find some great seafood while visiting the Belfast area and this place was recommended by the hotel. The lady that seated us was very friendly. The waiter was slow to return after we told him we need a couple of minutes before ordering. Asked if we wanted bread and thought it would never arrive. Our food... More

I've been here quite a few times before and it never disappoints. The entire waitstaff, the menu, the daily specials as well as the food and service-Excellent Always! Local sourced and fresh ingredients as well as great specials along with the now summer menu, make this a must stop place if you're in the area.
