popovers

I had the signature Lobster popover dish and it was excellent! The staff was very professional but there seemed to be a slight fruit fly issue at the time of our dining.

My wife and I were having a drink on the veranda of a restaurant on Boothbay Harbor, Maine, when she overheard two women talking about their dinner meal from the previous night, how exceptional and delicious it was. She wasn't going to ask, but I prevailed. The ladies were only too happy to tell us about the restaurant right next... More

Nice view, okay food. Ordered the dish that won the chef 'Lobster Chef of the Year" but it was light on lobster, heavy on popover, and considering popovers are given to every diner to start,might was starched out . Overall atmosphere and service made me feel like I had arrived as part of a bus tour.

It was our first time staying at this Inn. Location was perfect, very close to the foot bridge that takes to you downtown Boothbay Harbor. Spacious room with 2 double beds, you can also request 1 queen or 1 king. Great balcony to sit out and watch the harbor. Our room was 184, great spot for a view of the... More

They stop serving dinner at 9, even on the Fri. of 4th of July weekend. Seems weird but we got there in time and plenty of seats to choose from since it was very quiet. Chose the tiki looking lounge and had some good snacks. Their crabcakes were very good, not much breading which is key. The fried seafood sampler... More

We had a very nice dinner in the dining room overlooking the harbor. I had the Faroe Salmon which was delicious. My husband had the halibut which he enjoyed very much. Service was excellent. We would definitely return. Lovely location right on the harbor.

My wife and I visited this restaurant in May, a quiet time of year so can't vouch for it in high season. We enjoyed a very satisfying evening with great food and drinks. The seafood is outstanding. Great view of the harbor

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
