Not to be missed!

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... read 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.

We make sure to eat at The Lobster Dock 4-5 times a year and our last visit was on 10/10, just before they closed for the season. We love the Haddock Sandwich and the Prime Rib with the special sauce! Great assortment of steamed and fried seafood. The owner, Dawn and Mitch are exceptionally attentive to their customers and the... More

Outside windows to order and inside seating plus outside tables. Really geared towards a summer crowd. Could not open the umbrellas outside because of wind gusts over 15 knots. Fried food was good - Haddock, shrimp.

We loved our dinner here so much that it's hard to put into words. We chose this lobster restaurant over others because of the show with Bobby Flay that I had seen years before. My husband put up a decent argument against going because we have had a couple clunkers over the years following Food Network shows. Happily, I wanted... More

I never knew how good a lobster roll could taste until I tried the warm buttery version from The Lobster Dock. I would go there again just for the roll, although the wonderful whoopie pie (chocolate chocolate chip!) and the sunset view would pull me back also. I do think I'd be careful when I go. The seating is limited... More

Great for sunset view of the harbor. Outstanding Maine lobster dinner in a casual atmosphere. Reasonably priced menu. You order the food and it is delivered to your table.
