Stopped by for happy hour. Just 5 or 6 outdoor tables, an okay view. They offer $2.00 oysters during happy hour and special drink prices. Drinks were great and they had lots to choose from on their drink menu. Many different types of oysters. Inside bar upstairs is very eclectic, one wall lined with firewood for the stoves!!

Went on a Tuesday night enjoyed the live music ( a one man band but he could do just about anything). If you like oysters the Gliden Point gourmet sampler is a must!

We were in boothbay harbor for only three nights and had three meals at mine oyster. The menu is extensive, unique and creative. The view on the top level is spectacular While we were there the owner had a special oyster night that was the highlight of our trip. The owner is generous, creative and clearly loves what he does.... More

My boyfriend and I went in for happy hour during our stay in Boothbay Harbor, so we only planned on having oysters and drinks. We sat at the downstairs bar and had the oysters that were discounted for happy hour and a couple of other oysters the bartender recommended. They were both delicious and very fresh! We received very knowledgeable,... More

The view was beautiful! My husband says the raw bar's oysters were great! But our service was horribly slow, even though the restaurant was not full. which made the evening frustrating. After a looooong wait, the meals weren't served hot, even though the waitress served them with the comment, "Fresh off the grill!" Our guess was they had sat for... More

They try....but ..... what happens downstairs is not in sync with the third level. An advertised band was not playing, when I asked the host questioned, looked it up and then said Oh yeah well things happen. a chalkboard advertised "Happy Hour' brought an argument from the third floor server. Finally an owner? type said yes, it is Happy hour.... More

We attended a rehearsal party at Mine Oyster the night before a recent wedding in Boothbay Harbor. The party was held in a large 2nd floor room reached via a very steep and rather treacherous staircase. A full bar was available upstairs. The bar service was excellent in every regard. The buffet table featured ribs, pulled pork, baked beans, corn... More

Started on the top outside deck with a coctail. We each ordered a patron on the rocks. Cost - $27!! we are from Miami so we are not easily shocked but found this price quite high. When we complained they offered to give us the happy hour price of $15 for both. For our meal we had the oyster trio... More

Dinner started out well with raw oysters and bruschetta. They were done nicely but our entrees were inconsistent. Two dishes were not heated through. Though grilled over wood they came partly warm and in some areas quite cold. We mentioned this to our waitress who seemed appalled but didn't offer a solution. We went ahead and ate because it was...

We rented a house in Boothbay for the week and read the reviews for mine Oyster - good sushi in Boothbay harbor - this we had to try. So we decided to go for lunch today (Monday). Only problem is they don't serve sushi on Mondays! So although we were disappointed, we decided to have some select raw oysters -... More
