It's all about the lobster roll.

$20 for a lobster roll. Ouch. But we splurged and were pleasantly surprised at the huge amount of lobster in the buttered, toasted roll. I had to eat it with a fork, there was no way I could pick it up. The non-seafood was just ok; my husband likes onion rings and these were not very good... read more

I began my weeklong Crustacean Investigation in Maine with a visit to Boothbay Lobster Wharf. The location is a bit too crowded and touristy for me (sorry, I know I'm a tourist, but you know what I mean.) But it was good to be able to sit back and watch boats of varying shapes and sizes come in and out... More

Great place right on the water. We had the jumbo lister roll, steamed corn and rings and fries. We sat on a bench and watched the boats coming in and out of the harbor - beautiful and delicious. The jumbo lobster roll was overflowing with whole lobster meat, the corn was sweet and fresh. Would eat there again but they... More

Had to be the best lobster roll I've ever eaten... Stuffed full with plenty of tail meat. I am from New England and super picky when it comes to lobster rolls- this one was hands down the best I've had at a restaurant (and I've had many) there had to be meat from at least 2 lobsters in there. Had... More

I've been coming here for years. Started with Stoney's Lobster Run on my Harley (an annual kids charity motorcycle ride that ends at the lobster wharf). Always been a fantastic eatery and there is something on the menu for everyone. Most recently 8/9&16/15 I've arrived by boat and found new owners Sue and Susan who are very friendly and accommodating... More

I am from Maine and know seafood can be expensive especially during the summer but most places I have been give you a mound even if most is fries I was disappointed with the food and prices. I order combo seafood clams and scallops for 24.95 which seemed a little high in price to me. I received half a plate... More

The food came out quick and the staff was friendly, provides an excellent view of harbor. The food was in the middle, not fantastic but not terrible either.

Came in for lunch, looking forward to a fried clam roll. Unfortunately, it was pretty pricy, a little overdone and bordering on clam strips rather than whole bellies. But, the location is great - right on the harbor! You can dine inside or out and enjoy the great view and apparently can bring your pooch! And friends have told us... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and had a fabulous lobster roll! It was truly overflowing with fresh, juicy lobster meat and it was cooked perfectly. The fried haddock was tender and flavorful too! Definitely a place we'll return to.
