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.

Shared drinks and appetizers with friends from Boothbay Harbor. Nice deck with table service and tasty snacks. Wonderful views and caught a nice sunset.

The dining room in the Rocktide Inn is lovely with wonderful views. I bet the sunsets are stunning! The restaurant is a little more formal and upscale than other spots we checked out in Boothbay Harbor, but a sign announced that casual dress is welcomed. We were pleased with both our food and the service. Our meal started with perfect... More

We went here 2 nights in a row because the food is so good. My husband doesn't really like seafood so there were plenty of choices for his dinner. He had rack of lamb one night which was cooked perfectly and the second night he had filet mignon. I of course had a large lobster which was delicious.

I stayed here with my elderly Mother for a couple of nights. We had a Handicap Accessible room and we were very comfortable. The room was spacious, clean, had two bathrooms and a small private porch. The doorman, Nate was most helpful in making sure we had a parking spot close by and we really appreciated it. Unfortunately, the maid... More
