Fun place to stay

Great staff, convenient to footbridge into town, clean, reasonable rates, great complimentary breakfast. Ask for a room with a harbor view. We love our 5 day stay.

The Rocktide Inn has a very comfortable family atmosphere. There is an outdoor bar area that over looks the harbor. You can sit and watch the boats come in and out of the harbor all day, if you wish. Inside the restaurant has harbor views, also. Its a family friendly place to eat. There is a good sized menu, with... More

We went as a large party of eight and just about everyone had something different with all dinners being sensational. The steaks were cooked to perfection and of the highest quality, the scampi was overflowing with shrimp and lobster with a very good wine list.

My wife and I stayed at the Rocktide Inn, and had dinner in their restaurant. The clam chowder was a little bit salty, but LOADED with "stuff" My wife had a ceasar salad, crab cake appetiser, and blueberry crisp - she loved each item. In addition to the chowder I had pan-fried haddock - it was AWESOME. A benefit was... More

In order to sit where you can capture the best harbor views - based on one of our experiences - "men need to wear a jacket" and "need to have reservation HERE", even if the tables aren't used in this particular setting, is what didn't offer us a quick come back here. It's obvious that the kitchen takes great care... More

I have to say up front that I want to come back here to have dinner. When we visited, we stopped in planning to have a light dinner with drinks at the bar. We had one drink and left. The place was quite empty when we arrived, with only several folks sitting at the bar. The young lady at the... More

The best place to eat in Boothbay Harbor! We ate at several places and Rocktide Inn was our favorite. The restaurant is a big surprise as is quite beautiful inside but it is inside the Inn which is very ordinary on the outside. The wait staff was great and our meals were amazing. They even serve "popovers" with their meals... More

Wife and two grand kids visited Boothbay and stayed Rocktide Inn. Rooms nice and clean, breakfast was outstanding. Having a small refirg and microwave in rooms would have been nice - especially for travelers. Would go back and recommend to friends.
