Went in October. The weather was warm and the food was great. The staff were very friendly and socialized with guest and were very informative about things to do in the area.

Stopped here for dinner after the place we had planned to go to was closed due to the rain...delicious lobster roll, haddock sandwich, and beer! Being a born and raised Upstate New Yorker, I do have to say that the "NY pickles" did not live up to my expectations :) Very friendly and helpful staff! Would highly recommend this restaurant!!

For the last several years when we stay in Boothbay Harbor, we have dinner at the Lobster Dock, enjoy the lobsters, view and catching up with the owner, Mitch who is a delight.

I loved the food, but didn't like the wait in the long line to order, but it was worth it in the end. Great food. Great service. Fun to see the lobsters in the tanks. Right on the water for a nice view. REALLY good lobster roll.

We tried a variety of seafood items. My husband really enjoyed the crab cakes. Great steamers. The star of the evening was the clam strip roll! It was the best clam roll on our trip throughout Maine. Friendly, helpful staff.

Had lunch here while staying in Boothbay Harbor. My wife had fried clams on a roll and I had the haddock sandwich. Both were really good. Inexpensive, fresh, right on the water.

We just had a nice meal for six. My lobster rolls were pure, tender lobster on a buttered bun. Outstanding. My friends had lobsters. They arrived cracked--good--but still tricky to tat. No frills and very casual. My oysters were outstanding. The steamed clams were "spit clams" size medium to giant. They were surprise by the dipping water.
