So happy about the new location on the harbor in Belfast. Same cool atmosphere, great menu. Service was good too! I had the seafood provencal which was amazing!

We visited Nautilus in the heart of winter – and called ahead to order lobster. The result exceeded expectations: we each got TWO big lobsters, plus delicious sides. Our server recommended a great wine to go with the lobster, and when we'd finished making a mess, prying out the meat we could, the kitchen did something I've never had happen... More

I had lunch there, expecting to have a relaxing afternoon with my family. Everything went good until this happened. After waiting for a while, I waved my card with a bill to get my waiter’s attention. When he was taking them, the waiter stopped his move for a second and I felt he was making a facial expression. When he... More

I had their fried clam plate at lunch. For $15 I got a pile of french fries, a little tub of coleslaw, and seven fried clams. The coleslaw was not too bad, the obligatory french fries were slightly better than average, and the seven fried clams were remarkable for their uninteresting batter and their scarcity . It was a little... More

Nautilus just moved to downtown Belfast in a wonderful location. I thought maybe I should try them again, as my 2 visits to the former location were not memorable. So this past week I stopped in for lunch once and dinner once. I liked the lunch menu and my pasta/seafood selection. Dinner last night was disappointing. My seafood provencal was... More

We went to the Weathervane restaurant when it was in this location. Its nice to have the Nautilus restaurant there. The food was very good but the prices are to high. We will be going to the Dock Side down te street. The food there is very good and priced right.

I had shrimp scampi this noon. Now, I like garlic, but this dish was WAY overboard with way too much garlic! And, the dish was quite oily.

Went to new location and it was a disappointing event. My wife ordered the Hamburger with fries while I ordered the Haddock. We asked them to overcook the fries on both of our orders and when the fries came it was limp; How can you screw up fries? My wife left most of the Hamburger uneaten, she said if she... More

The decoration of the restaurant was very nice and the location is on the lake (although it was very cold night and we could not enjoy the view). We enjoyed our dinner. The service was great.
