You sit right on the doc that overlooks the lobster boats and have a fantastic view of Boothbay. Great at sunset time or any time of the day.

Amazing food, views, and everyone who worked here made us feel like we were regulars! The oyster guy was closing when we arrived, but went back and got oysters to shuck for us! Our waiter came by and spent about 15 minutes telling us places to visit in Maine! Can't wait to go back!

That being said, the rain didn't stop us from having one of the highlight experiences of our trip, which was at the Boothbay Lobster Wharf. My husband and I both had a lobster, steamers and corn on the cob. We... More

This is a very casual restaurant where you sit outside, place your order at the window and wait for your number to be called. It is right on the harbor so the views are great.

Only con is limited parking. Great lobster - especially when eaten at picnic tables on the dock. Plenty of covered area for rainy days.

We have been coming to Boothbay for about 20 yrs and have eaten at Boothbay Lobster Wharf (fomerlly Lobsterman's Co-Op) for about that long. The views, food are why you want to eat here.. The only negative this trip was there was no one to get drinks from for about 5 minutes. The beer was very foamy as it had... More
