I have only had lobster on cruise ships and could never understand why people raved about it! Obviously you cannot cook lobster well for 2000 people. My mind was changed by our visit to this place. Unpretentious, but welcoming. Lobster served with trimmings 15 mins after selecting it from a tank. Absolutely beautiful. I recommend this place highly. Our friends... More

Whenever I am in Boothbay Harbor, I make it a point to visit the lobster Wharf. It is a convenient walk from Browns Wharf. You choose your lobster from the out door lobster pits, it is placed in a bag along with the other lobsters in your order along with corn and placed in the outdoor cooker. They have a... More

Took wife and grandsons to Lobster Warf. One of our last meals in Boothbay. Ordered 2 lobster rolls and 2 fish sandwiches. Lobster rolls OK, wife was very disappointed in fish sandwich compared to other Haddock sandwiches she had in Maine. Best fish sandwich at Schooner Landing in Damariscotta. Sit down restaurant prices at a take-out cafe location.

This used to be our favorite place to get lobster in New England. Many times we made the 3 plus hour drive from Boston to get their lobsters. However it has changed hands since our visit before this one. It used to be the Lobster Coop, a somewhat gritty establishment with the best lobsters at a reasonable price. Now the... More

We went for happy hour on a Saturday night and all the employees were very attentive. It is on an actual working dock and one of the very few places I seen that offers crab! $1 shucks was very very impressive as well! A true hidden gem!

This is a wonderful place to experience the beauty, character and atmosphere of Boothbay Harbor. The delicious and reasonable fish dinner was beyond our expectaitions. The staff was welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed... More

Why go to Boothbay Harbor if not to eat lobster --- every day! The Lobster Wharf (formerly the lobstermans cooperative) does a very fine job of serving up lobsters and other goodies. But who cares about the other stuff --- we're there for the lobster!

We love stopping here when we are in Boothbay on vacation. To be able to sit outside on the Harbor and have a pitcher of beer and some fresh lobster (or my favorite the haddock sandwich) is one of the real pleasures of going to Boothbay. The wait staff are all very friendly and helpful and the food has never... More

I went to the Lobster Wharf 9/7 the seafood was off the chain! I loved the stone crab $3.00 apiece they were so delicious and the guy there let me pick them out! I really like the open air rustic dinning room great views of the water. You can watch the Lobster boats pull right into the dock and unload... More
