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.

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.

Restaurant with deck over looking the harbour, very quiet so no atmosphere but weather was poor and it was the end of the summer season. Food ordered, lobster and fish/chips came timely and was well prepared and tasty.

The food was good and the outdoor dining was really nice. We enjoyed sitting on the water on a beautiful summer night.

Going down hill.. Not as good as a year ago, same time.. The throw down was disappointing and was a small portion.... 4 people 120.00 for a couple shrimp and 2 lobster rolls... Booooooo.... What a rip... Maybe they had an off day.. I think we will try again today.. Super disappointing ....

Visited boothbay with my boyfriend and walked over the bridge and visited the lobster dock. We both ordered a lobster roll warmed with butter. We both thought they were delicious and at a great price! Will definitely visit again and come here as I have a craving for it!
