It was my 30th birthday weekend and we had already tried some other great restaurants in town, so decided to check the 'highly rated' Ports of Italy. While I know this review isn't about them (see my full review on their page), suffice it to say we felt very unwelcome there and walked out. I might be slightly long winded... More

If you are in Booth Bay Harbor, don't miss the chance to have lunch or dinner at Brown's Wharf Restaurant. On vacation, we happened upon Brown's restaurant and stopped for lunch. I had two lobsters (price $26) and my wife had fish and it was excellent. The service was great, no hi guys, but very professional and helpful without being... More

The view from the patio of the restaurant is beautiful! The food was good, but not fantastic. The service was friendly.

We have been going to the Boothbay region on vacation for over 20 years and part of our tradition is to have dinner at Brown's once or twice a visit. We have NEVER been disappointed in any way. We have sat on the deck watching the boats come in for the evening. We have run in from the parking lot... More

Fish and chips $20... This is local fare, how can it possibly cost $20? Turkey dinner $20.... Really? You can buy a whole turkey for $16. Flavor was fine portions were average. Service was brusque.

We booked a night at Brown's because we had tickets to a show at the Boothbay Opera House and didn't want to drive home afterwards. Brown's was the first place we found with a vacancy and no two night minimum. Because we had a show at 7:30, we figured to eat where we were staying and hope for something ok.... More

We went for my father's wedding, the place is beautiful. The deck is a great spot for a wedding party. If air conditioning is a must they have a back room that makes you feel like you're down below an antique ship. We had the seafood in brandy cream over pasta. Very good. Desserts yummy and the prime rib was... More
