Great food at fair price.

I had a lobster dinner with two lobsters with the fixins. Food was great and the meal was only $20. You can even get three lobsters for $25!!

A simple but well priced happy hour led off a good, Maine seafood centric dinner with family during a vacation trip to Boothbay. No one left hungry, and the food was good from soup (lobster chowder) to desserts (blueberry pie). Mid-priced, casual, and some nice seats on the back deck to watch the boats.

We had both lunch and dinner here. The food arrived hot, very reasonably priced compared to other local eateries. The fish and chips are very good, had a burger that was not well seasoned. The staff was friendly and attentive.

Very reasonably priced, high quality food. A good variety of beers and other drinks.. Nice ambience and helpful, friendly staff. The amount and quality of their take-away food was amazing and some of the best we had in the Boothbay area.

My wife and I are empty nesters so choosing the bar over being seated at a table is a no brainer for us. We rolled into Kahler's on a Friday night around 8 p.m. The place looked busy but I saw 2 high tops at the bar so we headed over. The place has a rusty, laid back feeling to... More

We had a nice lunch at Kaler's while visiting Boothbay. We arrived just as they were opening as we had an afternoon tour. There were plenty of tables and service was good. They have typical New England seafood, which was hot and well prepared.

So much food!' Shouldn't have ordered Haddock chowder, although it was delicious!! Too much food. Lobster dinner came with steamers, corn on the cob , cole slaw and fries. Everything was great! Bloody Mary was also fantastic! Would highly recommend.

The meal was very good and the price was reasonable. It is a very casual restaurant and is rustic. It is good for families.
