I went to this restuarant looking for only boiled lobsters, I got them, they were what I wanted. I think most of the lobster places in the area have the same quality, what differs is the ambiance, maybe sides (only a roll here, no corn or slaw) and price. I think there are a lot of unhappy... read more

Simply the worst excuse for a restaurant. Went for lobster, but a floater in the tank should have been our clue to leave. Didn't have the wine on the menu, with a poor excuse for a substitute. Stuffed shrimp was horrible. This place needs to close down.

I was looking forward to trying dinner here, I had heard the food was pretty good. I got the baked stuffed haddock with lobster sauce which sounded so good on their menu......it was NOT. It had a few bones and the haddock was a little dry and it didn't have a good flavor at all. The mashed potatoes were ok... More

Went by boat which is always a treat when you can dock your tender at the restaurant. The overall appearance of the place is tired. Had the lobster roll which was great. All claw and knuckle meat on a grilled bun. The onion rings were terrible. Tough batter. The rolls were not very good. The lobster dinner was over priced... More

I have visited this restaurant many times in the past, and most experiences were positive. On August 16th my wife and I stopped in for lunch at 1 PM. After standing at the "wait here to be seated" podium for nearly ten minutes with no acknowledgement by any of the staff that looked our way as they came and went... More

Lobsterman's is a great old place on the Damariscotta River in East Boothbay, ME. It is off the beaten path a but, but usually worth the 15 minute drive from Boothbay Harbor. The setting is gorgeous. I've spent many a time with an ale and seafood there. Only problem is that the food can vary radically from one year to... More

Despite the recent negative reviews, my wife and I had really nice lunch at the Wharf. The lobster rolls remain some of the best in Maine. They are all claw meat and no filler! The wait staff was prompt, courteous and friendly. I hope the new owners give the place a coat of fresh paint and generally spruce up the... More

I had the twin lobster special and was not disappointed. It was delicious. All the food looked so good I wanted to try everything and hope to go back one day and stay longer. I could eat there every night. Good prices, too
