Had the double lobster meal. We also ordered the bucket of clams. Great service, great price...can't complain about anything. Was a tad bit ticked at the $7.00 charge for us sharing the lobster...but...heyho...we're on vacations!

The Wharf was on a deck overlooking Boothbay; the day was beautiful. This was a self service style ordering restaurant. Everyone was professional, the value was good and the Lobster's were tasty.

Nice outdoor setting. This is my first visit under the new ownership. The set up is exactly the same. Order steamed seafood at one window, everything else at another window. There are a bunch of indoor and outdoor communal tables. The dude at the steamed section was a little bit off his game. We were thinking if getting big lobsters... More

This is one of those places you have to go to just once. The docks right there, downtown is right across the harbor. You can people watch, and yacht watch. Then go down the street to the small family run place that charges 1/2 the price for just a fresh lobster. It's typical Maine lobster, steamer, oyster fair, corn on... More

No matter when we've stopped here - anywhere from Mother's Day to Columbus Day - the food is always outstanding. The chowrders are full of fish and clams, and very flavorful. I know it's not hard to cook lobster, but this is the best I've tasted anywhere. My wife says the fried clams are the best she's had. The addition... More

Great food and very friendly staff. Generous portions. We enjoyed a country band while we ate. Todd the owner and Val the bar tender couldn't have been friendlier. Despite the rain, couldn't have asked for a more authentic Maine experience!

Before I get to the food I have to give a shout out to the best bartender ever: Valerie makes the lobster taste better and the drinks sweeter. She was great! We ate our incredibly fresh steamers and lobster and Valerie provided amazing service and conversation. I have been coming to this place for 15 plus years and it isn't... More

We eat here during the Windjammer week. We ordered a bowl of the fish chowder and had to send it back 3 times because it was all milk, no fish. The 3rd time they forgot about us and we waited well over 1/2 hr in the rain before I told the manager. Finally I told them to cancel it and... More
