Great views, great food

Very nice setting on the bay with a good view for sunset. I had the fried scallops with cole slaw and potato salad and DW had fried Haddock with fries. Both were well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Large portions. The potato salad was some of the best I've had anywhere. We had a special fried... read more

The view here is great a little on the expensive side. I had spicy seafood pasta it was ok the flavors were very good, but one scallop was not cooked all the way. and some of the other seafood was warm. I would not judge this restaurant on a single dish as I have had excellent seafood here in the... More

My wife and I each had a boiled lobster dinner which is served with an ear of corn on the cob and a biscuit. My dinner included a pound and a half of steamed littleneck clams (aka steamers). Every meal is cooked to order in enclosed kettles outside. The lobster is fresh every day and was cooked perfectly, as were... More

I have discovered that we are not lobster roll fans, however the whoopie pies are AWESOME! I like my seafood more cooked than the people of Maine apparently

This is the best place to have boiled lobster dinner. Love sitting outside and the view is great. Covered area if it rains or you don't like too much sun. The staff always very friendly.

We go here often during the summer and I can't recall any great disappointment. My husband always chooses to go here first when he's hungry for a quick seafood bite in the middle of the day and sometimes for a casual dinner. Here he likes his crab roll, haddock sandwich, lobster roll or fried oysters. I get my hot lobster... More

Very good assortment of different seafood. Other food was available for those non seafood lover type of people. You need to get there early as the line can get long, but it moves fast. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. Overall a very good experience.

We never miss the Lobster Dock on a trip to Boothbay Harbor. Fun atmosphere, great good, and wonderful views of the harbor. You won't be disappointed! Be sure to have a cold Landshark while enjoying some of the freshest lobster in the area.

Went there yesterday and was not disappointed. I had the boiled lobster with corn on the cob and my wife had a lobster roll. We were very satisfied. I couldn't believe the amount of lobster on the lobster roll. About 3 lobsters worth. Again, absolutely worth the drive.
