We were in search of fresh lobster and found them at the Boothbay Lobster Wharf. We weren't overly hungry, so the friendly staff suggested a medium-sized, soft shell lobster for each of us, plus traditional corn on the cob. The outdoor harbor setting was perfect, as we sat on a table on the wharf on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We... More

If you want a real Maine lobster experience don't go anywhere else! Sit on the outdoor deck and watch the fishermen off load their daily catch! Pick out a couple lobsters for the steamer and prepare to enjoy a relaxing and friendly dining experience. This is by far our favorite place to eat and visit with friends! If you don't... More

On one night of our stay in Boothbay Harbor we ordered 9 lobsters to take back to our house for dinner. Boothbay Lobster Wharf steamed these for us while we waited. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the lobsters were delicious! Two nights later we bought haddock for the grill and cooked it up at our rental house.... More

The owner personally introduced us to his restaurant and menu since it was our first visit. The lobster salads were delicious with plenty of very fresh lobster; and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the beautiful harbor view while we were eating outdoors. Everything was very clean, including the restrooms.

The food was very good but we waited in the rain about 20 minutes to get our food. Had the clam roll which was very fresh. Returned later on in the evening to listen to Mudy Waters in the upstairs bar. Had a great time. It rained all night but that did not damper our spirits or those of the... More

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
