Must try

Great food and atmosphere right by the water in the heart of town. We loved our dinner and the price was very reasonable.

We actually were trying to find another restaurant but in early May most everything is closed here including restaurants & shopping. This was one of the only places open so I recommend calling to see if a particular place is open before traveling there anywhere in Maine actually this time of year! We did enjoy the restaurant with a view... More

We wandered in for lunch on a Saturday in late April. We were seated right away and our food came quickly. We had a clam roll and a shrimp roll. Both were filled to the brim with seafood and quite good. I also had a great glass on white wine. Overall, the food was average to above average, the portions... More

I came here, upon recommendation, with 4 friends following attendance at the opening of the 10th Annual Maine Photography Show at the Boothbay Region Arts Foundation, where I was an exhibitor in the show. McSeagull's is one of the show's official supporters. We wandered in about 7pm without a reservation. The restaurant was busy but not packed, and shortly thereafter... More

Searched the internet for Coastal places open on Easter and this one appeared. Great view from our seat. Service was pretty slow and laid back with a Bar feel and could have been a little more thorough. Asking if we wanted bread with our Prime Rib when we ordered would have been the key before we asked if they had... More

Crab cakes were average and the haddock breading separated quickly from the fish within the first few bites. Not bad...just average.

Nice deck seating overlooking the harbor. Good food casual eating in a bar-like atmosphere. Can be cool early in the season on the deck so bundle up.

This is one of those places that if you woke up there you'd know you were in a nice Maine harbor town. Right on the water. The soup is worth waiting for if they have a dinner rush. Some things are a little pricey but worth treating yourself if you visit. Wait staff does there best to get to you... More

I spent 4 weeks travelling around the United States and the lunch I had at McSeagulls was the best meal I ate the entire time! After spending the morning doing a boat tour around the harbor we were looking for a quick lunch and this restaurant more than exceeded our expectations!! The restaurant was about to have a big party... More
