Yum!

Absolutely delicious! Not a single complaint from the entire table. Started with oysters on the half shell which I highly recommend. The fried clams, salmon and fish and chips were equally as tasty as the next. I recommend a trip to McSeagull's!!!!

We travel to the area annually or sometimes more often and always have at least one meal @ Mc Seagull's. This was the first busy weekend of the season for the staff and despite a last minute defection (which they handled in stride) they still presented me with a "Hemingway Daiquiri" that would have made Old Ernest proud. The views... More

We stopped in Boothbay Harbor for lunch on our way to Bar Harbor. We chose this place because it was on the water and the menu choices looked really good. We were not disappointed. We both had individual pizzas. Mine was gluten free and it was excellent. My husband said his was excellent also. The server was very attentive to... More

We asked a shop owner for his recommendation on the best place in town for clam chowder. Without hesitation, he said to go to McSeagull's. The chowder is "not chintzy," he said. We couldn't agree more. The soup was loaded with clams and tasted great. My wife likes a thinner base, but I loved the thick consistency. We also enjoyed... More

Very tasty dinner with a view of the Harbor. The seafood stew is a must!! Scallops were tender and the crab cakes were tasty. Accommodating staff. I was a bit worried about the name of the restaurant, but it didn't end up being a factor.

The staff upon arrival seemed confused, not a good start. Cocktails were watered down and over priced, much like chain. Food was fair at best, wrong items, and server presented the wrong check. TOURIST TRAP, STAY AWAY.

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
