We have come here since it was the Lobster co-op. Nothing fancy but great steamed lobster that you can eat inside or out. The lobsters are kept in tanks outside and cooked out there, too. My husband doesn't eat lobster but enjoys the chicken that is also sold there.

Have enjoyed the Lobster Wharf for years. The lobsters, clams and mussels are the freshest and tastiest. Add a full bar, sunset, music and you have an evening to remember. Come in comfortable clothes, sit on the picnic tables and take your time to enjoy.

We have been here lsat trip and ate the steamed lobster which was great, had a yen for some fried food today. Wife had clam roll ( with bellies!! ), and I had fried shrimp dinner. You order at a window, and they call you when it's done. Plenty of nice deck area on harbor to enjoy your meal. Both... More

The owner got on our bus with 34 people and told us what to expect in a real "downeast" Maine accent which was fun to hear. The bar, wait staff and service were excellent. The place was clean. The long tables indoors and outside were perfect for a fun meal. The lobsters & clams were cooked to perfection. Many within... More

I went here with a group and it was met by Todd who is a wonderful host. The food was good and there is plenty of parking. If you are in the area you have to go here for a lobster dinner.

Best lobsters I've EVER had. You pick it out and they steam it, then call you to come pick it up. Served with a variery of sides - go corn on the cob. Lobster was very fresh and as tasty as you could want. Place was so good, we broke our rule of going someplace different every night by doubling... More

My family and I have been visiting this place since I was a kid. We knew it back then as the Lobsterman's Co-op. Whenever we get to Boothbay Harbor it is a must that we stop by and enjoy some sweet, succulent lobster with warm, melted butter while sitting out on the dock and taking in a spectacular view of...

Mainers know you get what you pay for and this lobster roll-regular size costs $18.95 and was worth every penny and more! At least a whole lobster was in and on this sandwich. I ate with a fork for at least 10 minutes before I could even think about picking up that delicious grilled roll. There is a larger size... More
