Lots of places to choose from in Boothbay to eat, Glad we picked Rocktide. Stayed next door and this made for an easy walk. Great job with decor on the many dining rooms. We sat outside to watch the sunset. Perfect Spot. Can't go wrong with lobster, or lobster cassarole.

Stopped by here for drinks and sunset on our way back to our hotel. We went inside to the lounge first and sat there fro 10 minutes without anyone coming near our table. We moved outside to the very front deck and a waiter came right over. Took a while to get the drinks. Sunny spot, great for watching the... More

Arrived just in time last Friday night for a spectacular sunset (see photo), staff was friendly & food was wonderful. The bartender was very knowledgeable & made some great recommendations! Rocktide is a must if you’re in the Boothbay region!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Rocktide this summer. We stayed two nights in room 151, which had an amazing view of the harbor. It was a great room! We loved sitting out on the deck after we returned to our room after dinner. We had to change rooms for our third night because the room we were in... More

Have been here many times before but never reviewed. Wonderful atmosphere with a nautical theme. The museum of ships is a wonder. The food was good ( not outstanding) but consistent to other times I have been there. I had surf and turf and it was good and nicely presented. The service was a little slow, but waitress was very...

We had an excellent seafood dinner here overlooking the harbor. Our room was nice and clean even if slightly dated. The breakfast buffet was included. The inn also had a roomy sitting area with games and puzzles for relaxing.The cute little downtown shopping and dining area was just a short walk across the footbridge.

I haven't been to Rocktide in a few years but went last night for dinner. We started off with drinks in the Tiki Bar - great atmosphere and service, as well as reasonably priced drinks. Then we moved onto the deck for dinner. Great view, service was awesome and prompt, and the food was PERFECT. I had the linguini with... More

A perfect atmosphere! The waterfront deck is spacious and offers sun or shade. I recommend the blacken haddock Ruben, onion rings and a glass of wine! Seven in our party and everyone was happy with their meal; choices varied from burgers and sandwiches to salads. Need to go back for music on the deck Sunday afternoons and try the popovers!

Can't think of a better choice to eat or stay in Boothbay Harbor if you want great food, reasonable prices for lovely rooms, attentive staff, a huge restaurant deck right on the water, a fabulous bar (both drinks and vibe), and a killer view of the harbor. If you haven't been there, go soon!
