Friendly and attentive wait staff. Great food and atmosphere. The traditional Turkey dinner for me and the Fisherman's platter for my husband, which we both would highly recommend. A must try is the Key Lime pie

Our meals were delicious. The service was excellent. And the overall atmosphere was more than what we had expected.

Have been to Boothbay many times, and this was our first try of Brown's, and will be back. My 88 year old Mom and I went for dinner here. They had Prime Rib on the menu, and since Mom doesn't eat much, we decided to 'split' it. The waitress said that they either grill it, or blacken it...Never had it... More

I was surprised that the reviews on Trip Advisor were so good for this restaurant - I was thoroughly not impressed. I would give this restaurant good ratings for ambience and service, but the food was definitely average. I liked the cedar planked salmon but the green beans (as the vegetable side of the night) were steamed with no seasoning... More

We ate dinner twice and breakfast once as we stayed two nights at Brown's Wharf Inn. We hardly ever eat at the same twice when we travel, but the first night was so good we returned the next night for the twin lobsters, escargo, and lettuce wedge. Service,atmosphere and price--- FIRST CLASS!

We had four full days of lobster and had to come up for air. Well, it just so happens that Thursday night is turkey, gravy, mashed and stuffing night! We sat and watched a full house cracking and shucking with their bibs on and our little corner table looked like Thanksgiving. Great spot for anything but if you need a... More

We try to visit Brown's at least once each summer when we're in Boothbay. The food is very good, and deck seating places you literally next to the huge boats that are docked there. Add views of the harbor and spectacular sunsets, and you just have to relax and enjoy. As they don't take reservations, we opted for a brief... More

A huge dining venue with multiple rooms which was hardly one quarter full on a Saturday 9/7/13 at 7:00 PM. It is old, worn, and uninviting. The staff outnumbers the diners and none of them appear to be too interested. We ordered prosecco as a cocktail, which was labeled BRUT, when tasted it was a sweet as soda pop and... More
