Great food, great service

The lobster is excellent. The atmosphere is very nautical. It took a few minutes for us to get a menu at dinner, but after that, the service was great. Our server was very friendly and very knowledgeable about lobster, which we were not. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and our breakfast the next... read more

Food was good, service was disappointing. Had to ask for refills of water. Tea was never refilled. Dining area was nice.

We arrived on Sunday afternoon and at dinner time my wife just didn't feel like eating. SO I sat at bar and had a fantastic meal with a prefect bartender to serve me. Bathe Manhattan was prefect and the seafood trio was very tasty. The atmosphere was also fun with locals including you in conversation. Another Plus!!

Sat at the bar on a Friday evening and was immediately acknowledged very pleasantly by bartender (...Kathy). Steamers were clean and cooked to perfection - right proportion for price (as an app), and bread was fresh and plenty full. Gluten free mushroom risotto with scallops were a huge hit with the hubby (celiac disease) and my salmon with salad was... More

Big portions but pricey. Excellent seafood and one of their specials was Turkey Dinner. I loved the shrimp. Our table was facing the harbor and we stayed long enough to see the sunset.

Two couples, two fisherman's platters. We had plenty of yummy food, I also had their house salad which was delish! The views of the harbor are great, and whoever their gardener is, should get a raise! They have the most beautiful containers and window boxes . Just overflowing with flowers !

Located on the quieter, less touristy, side of Boothbay Harbor Browns has outstanding views of the harbor , good service and acceptable but rather generic food at fairly normal prices for the region. As good as or a little better than most of its immediate competitors the decor is reinforced with nautical memorabilia in particular numerous models of sailing vessels... More
