This is one place you can always count on for quality. If you love lobster, clams & seafood dinners, and clam chowder, this is the place to go. You have to try the crab cakes - the best ever! Of course, they have the typical chicken fingers and burger for the picky kids in the group. Love this place.

This was a great find! Just a short walk from our hotel, this Seafood "shack" was perfect for our first night in town. It offers an extensive menu as well as options for wine. We both ordered the lobster stew. Mine was loaded with lobster. I opted for the buttered lobster roll, which was fabulous - slightly warmed with drawn... More

If visiting Boothbay Harbor and wanting a good seafood lunch with a tremendous seaside view, this should be your restaurant choice. The view is spectacular, and we enjoyed a delicious luncheon of scallop roll, mussels, and Shock Top Wheat Beer. We would eat there again and would recommend it as well.

I've rated The Lobster Dock as "Excellent" primarily because of the owner Mitch -- his terrific attitude and desire to make his customers happy raises his restaurant above those where style and profit reign. It's a pleasure to support a small-business owner and his family, too (near the order window there's a copy of a newspaper article about their decision... More

We have a summer place at BBH and always bring our friends and family to Lobster Dock! Great food, great owners who come by and say hello, and a relaxing venue where you can dig in to great lobster and seafood without all the formality of upscale dining. The place is clean and neat. You can sit out on picnic... More

When was the last time you ate at a restaurant that was also where the owner lived and raised his family? When was the last time you ate at a restaurant that chefs from all over the world go just because they know the quality of the food and dedication of the owner? When was the last time you went...

The Haddock sandwich was so big I felt like Fred Flintstone. The fish was folding of the roll. The soft drinks were only "one size " so I expected 10oz...they were were at least 16 and I even think 20oz. The staff was very friendly and the girls working there repeatedly came to our table and asked if we needed... More

I still don't really know what the fuss is about this place, at least in terms of the lobster rolls, but we had some great fried seafood here. The fried haddock and fried clams were excellent. The clam chowder was average and somewhat bland and I didn't like the way it was thickened. I had the warm lobster roll, which... More

I was surprised at the fact that you order at the counter and then the wait staff bring the meal to you. I had the grilled chicken and my spouse had the fried haddock. Overall, the food was OK. I was expecting more, due to the high ratings on trip advisor. Another fact that I found disconcerting was that the... More
