I don't really understand why so many people have given this four and five stars.. It was good, but far from great. I will say that the seaweed salad was above average, nice and spicy. The lobster roll was beautiful, but the other food we ordered was just all right. I had an oyster sampler; our server was new, but... More

Took my daughter here for her inaugural lobster roll. We ordered both the hot and cold versions. Hot is served with butter on a tasty brioche roll while cold is served with a very light mayo dressing also on a brioche roll. Cole slaw on the side was also delicious. Add outside dining and friendly service and this is a... More

the oysters were very fresh, well-shucked, nicely presented. The TV screens with the World Cup playing were distracting (to the staff).

Food was terrible. Not only that, but the way the employees are treated by their superiors is borderline verbally abusive. "Appalled" is really the best word to describe my feelings towards this place. Never again.

We stopped the day before and had a drink. It was fine and the menu seemed interesting so we stopped by the next night for dinner. Big mistake!! We asked our waitress about hard ciders and she didn't mention any on tap, when we asked about the one we had yesterday her reply was "that's not my bar, I don't... More

All week we planned to visit here. So glad we did! Sat on the deck and had some great food. The sushi is incredible which we had for an appetizer! Enjoyed the fried scallops, salmon wrap, burgers and crab crostini. Even the kids meals were tasty and plentiful but extremely overpriced for a kids meal at $8 each (drink not... More

In a seafood focused harbor we were very lucky to find this cute restaurant! The chef personally met us at the door and told us no worries when we said we are vegans. He prepared us spring rolls, avocado rolls, edamame, and a delicious fruit roll ! Service was amazing!!!!

My husband and I decided to go here after reading the menu and the fact that it got four stars. I can't imagine why this restaurant would get four stars? We called to see if we needed a reservations and they laughed and said no. It is in a very touristy area which should have been the first indication. After... More

The oysters, raw on the halfshell, amazeballs. The house sushi role with spicy tuna and mango, yummy and the yellowtail tuna nigiri, awesome. Staff good (although Michael was awesome - if he's not here come back when he is). A must try while in Boothbay Harbor if you love oysters, sushi and awesome service.
