Best in Town!

Our very favorite place in Boothbay harbor. The food is excellent, best deal for your money. Easy location to find, nice dock with great view for cocktails and they have a 2 hour happy hour everyday that draws a lot of fun, friendly people.

Four of us selected Kaler's from TA reviews. We were very satisfied with our meals, the prices, and the location in the harbor. Excellent place to enjoy the water and food! [We visited in July 2012, but just noticed we had not added our review]

Really great food, good prices and a great view of the harbor. Right in town near all the shops and close to our hotel (Cap'n Fish's which is a great place to stay by the way).

My wife and I dinned at Kaler's after reading the reviews. We had been in Maine a week and had "lived" on seafood. We ordered the Clam strips and Calamari, The portions were large and we both felt that it was some of the best prepared seafood we had had on the trip. I would highly recommend trying Kaler's if...

Kalers is SO MUCH FUN. In the 2014 season, my boyfriend and I made it up to Boothbay Harbor twice, and both times we attended at least 2 happy hours at Kaler's. The drink specials are amazing and the atmosphere is great. We sat at the bar, where we met a ton of Boothbay locals. We got the inside scoop... More

We had the lobster rolls and they were good. The lobster was plentiful and the rolls very fresh. The only thing I'd change is season the lobster filling a bit more. The service was good.

We arrived in Boothbay Harbor late afternoon in mid-October. What we didn't realize was that most of the restaurants had closed for the season the day before. When we are in the area, we like to eat at the Lobster Dock, but had to find another eatery. We were glad that we had chosen Kaler's. Between the four of us,... More

Can't say it was the best lobster roll I've ever had but it was definitely an A- or B+ The lobster was definitely fresh, just not quite as sweet as the one I had at Red's in Wiscasset. My friend had the clam chowder and a lobster roll and he noted that the clam chowder was a little liquidy (rather... More

This is a fun restaurant and one of the few open this time of year. Seems like most of the town is shut down and it's only 10/17 what's up with that? Lobster was very good and fairly priced. The chowder was good also and the service friendly. Enjoy!
