WOW, we were in Boothbay and looked on Tripadvisor for a place to eat. We paid attention to the reviews and here we are. Doesn't get better than this. Great food, good service, super surroundings and a beautiful day. A bit pricey, but a great experience.

This evening we stayed at Brown's Wharf Inn across the cove from Boothbay Lobster Wharf. Tomorrow we'll eat there because tonight we were entertained by an EXCELLENT band that played there. Brown's Wharf should pay them for providing entertainment. This band was fantastic, and added a whole other dimension to our stay at Brown's. We'll try the restaurant tomorrow!

Simple outdoor dining. Nothing fancy here, plastic forks and cups. Order dinner at a window, get drink at bar and find a table. Luckily we work something warm. Food was pretty good and reasonably priced. Happened to have a rock/country music that was fun and entertaining. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves. Dress appropriately for cool weather.

I ate Lobster and Steamers four times in Maine and this was the best place yet. The twin lobster special was so delicious and juicy. The lobsters were easy to get into and were so fresh. The steamers were out of this world. We sat outside and got butter all over us and enjoyed a great evening. My fav place... More

Delicious lobster roll with an abundance of lobster meat! It took me 5 minutes with a fork to even get to the bun! My favourite lobster roll in Boothbay Harbor.

Food was good, but there is an up charge for onion rings, that is not shown on the website. Drinks are small, (medium drink is the size of a small in most places). We did watch a lobster boat come in and thats was neat to see. I will probably come back with my son...

OK so trip advisor says go to the Lobster Dock in East Boothbay Harbor, but if you can manage to walk the extra 200 yards around to the Lobster Wharf you will not be disappointed, and will probably not have to deal with a 30 person line. Food is cooked while you wait, views are over the harbor, but a... More

A perfect spot to get a lobster. Friendly staff, full bar. Order your food, wait for your name to be called. Picnic tables. Competitive prices with any place in town. Highly recommend if you want seafood or lobsters. You can sit right on the harbor side with a great view.
