Good lobster rolls and burgers

My wife loved their lobster rolls. She said they have just the right amount of mayo. I had their huge burger with chips (french fries) and it was delicious. This is Booth Bay fast food! Decor will make you feel like a 1920's fisherman back from the catch of the day:) Good waitress. Serves... read more

The service was great. The food was your average fair, nothing exciting to report.The entrees could be bigger for the price. The side choices were limited to coleslaw or a prepackaged apple sauce, something you would put in you childs lunchbox. Not impressed.

The ambience of this place is awful. It feels like you are underground. No windows. Sooooo hot. Food was crazy expensive for what you get. And definitely nothing special. Service was super slow. Not to mention we watched an obviously underage girl get served way too much alcohol and then vomit all over her table. It was bad.

We had a fun filled day in Boothbay and it was late. The restaurants close at 9 and we were looking for a low key pub type menu. Looking at TAdivsor this seemed to fit the bill. As we entered we knew it was middle America/family place. Our server Lousie was delightful but the menu was the basic fare/non created... More

We were tired after a long drive and not looking for a sit down meal. After a fruitless search around the busy part of Boothbay Harbor we came across Kalers just along the dock from the hotel. The menu was good and everything available for take out, friendly staff provided just what we needed.

We went here for lunch. They had a special of the day of Lobster Corn Chowder which was delicious! The chowder had plenty of chunks of lobster, grilled corn, potatoes and other seasonings. Another special of the day was a Lobster Pesto Pizza. This was also very good! The pesto was freshly blended, and the lobster was plentiful! We will... More

Coldest beer we found in Booth Bay Harbor and the lobster roll was on the money. Plenty of friendly waitstaff.

We went to Kaler's/Tug's Pub twice during our recent visit to Boothbay Harbor. Both times were during their Happy Hour from 3-5 pm. Enjoying their $2 drafts while sitting on their beautiful wooden deck overlooking the harbor was a perfect way to take a break from shopping. They did not have waitstaff if you were just having drinks on the... More
