Crab cakes!

I hate crab cakes, but these were awesome. Disregard the not so nice woman at the window, the food is worth the brief wait and glares

The atmosphere is truly authentic! The lobster just doesn't get any fresher than this. We love going here, it's one of our favorite maine things to do. There's nothing quite like eating a lobster on the dock and watching the boats come in after their catch😂

Great service, food was excellent, view of the harbor is unbeatable and the beer was ice cold. We ate here twice in two days. Any Questions???

Great casual waterfront dining. Food was very good. My wife found gluten free options. Good value, We enjoyed our apps and the fish and chips was very good.

The clam chowder was fantastic and so was everything else. 8 people in our group ate here for 3 meals and everyone was completely satisfied.

Chose this place for our first lobster in years. I will say it was pretty good, but I expected more. Great expectations I guess. Service was good, lobster tasty and view great! Loved it!

Reasonably priced food that's delicious. Fun setting with a beautiful view of the harbor. Interesting wait staff set up.....everyone waits on everyone and you leave a tip in a jar at the end of your meal.

Nice location right on the harbor. Lobster roll was not as good as others I'd had in the Boothbay Harbor region. Very casual and pleasant atmosphere. Sangria was not that great. Pleasant staff.

You order in line at the window & they bring to your table. We had large group of 13 & all got served in timely fashion. Crab cakes ( Bobby Flay throw down) were great, salmon dinner & surf n turf were good as well.

Ate dinner here two nights with my husband and two grandsons. Lobster excellent as you would imagine. Scallops and shrimp also very good. The glass of Pino Grigio I found hard to drink.
