Went here two nights during our visit to Boothbay. It's an order/pay and find a seat type of place, very casual. First night got the twin lobsters and a few side, and blueberry pie for dessert. Great prices and good service. On the second night we sat in the lower sitting area, because we brought our dogs, which is awesome... More

What an awesome meal and what a view. My wife and I both had the haddock sandwich. It was delicious. The portion was so big the haddock spilled out over the edges of the large bun. Luckily they serve the sandwich with a fork as we needed to eat half of the haddock with the fork before attacking the sandwich.... More

During a recent week's vacation in nearby East Boothbay, my wife and I had dinner 4 evenings at The Lobster Dock. It is exactly what we seek for excellent, informal dining when in the area. Drop-dead view of Boothbay Harbor at sunset, from cheerful bright red wooden tables under umbrellas outside. Large airy indoor eating area when the fog and... More

Highly recommended by reviews...no idea how so many people can be wrong. Small tiny hotdog size lobster roll what a joke at $16! What a joke..hubby got clam chowder which had good flavor but hardly any clams, all broth. I got a 1 1/4 lobster which was $17 it was ok but not great, the corn was not fresh and... More

We had the lobster dinner (15.95) which was excellent. I never really cared much for lobster - now I know why. This place knows how to cook it and it was delicious. We also had the lobster rolls on another day and I liked them even more. Great service - great prices.

I ate here with my Mother our first night in Boothbay Harbor. It's nothing fancy, you place your order in the window, pay and take a seat at one of the large picnic tables and wait for your server to bring you a big plate of yummy seafood. We had planned on Lobster but they were soft shell this night... More

Lobster roll very good with a choice of hot with melted butter or cold with mayo. Also must try the whoopie pie, it was just perfection!

I was looking for a good lobster dinner so pointed to the Lobster Dock. The food is so yummy. I had the fried artichoke hearts and just the normal lobster dinner. I left completely full, satisfied and was able to witness a beautiful sunset as well. Great experience.
