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

My husband and I went to the Nautilus for Mothers Day Brunch. I like the fact that brunch is a special menu but not a buffet. I had the scallop, bacon quiche though was torn between that and the goat cheese fiddlehead one. Our waiter recommended the scallop bacon one- bacon, he's a guy! It was terrific, just the right...

Nautilus is one of only three good indoor restaurants in Belfast, but if you get the chance to eat on their back deck, don't pass it up. The view is spectacular, and honestly, their bacon cheeseburger is the very best I have ever eaten!

Great service, beautiful ocean view, delicious food! The appetizer menu is bold and has a nice variety. The seafood tastes like it must be fresh off the boat. They know how to cook a steak perfectly. The desserts will knock your socks off!
