Avoid at all costs!! Dirty. Terrible service. We had to ask thrice for our drinks which came only as we finished eating. Never brought salad dressing we wanted despite asking twice. A throwback to a bygone era when there was no local competition for tourist dollars. Travel another 1/4 mile down Ocean Dr to get to the East Boothbay general... More

Friends and I recently ate here, and while the location was very nice, we were disappointed with the food. The lobster was good, but the other dishes, baked stuffed shrimp and fried soft shell crabs were not good at all. The restaurant was almost empty on a Friday night at peak time, which should have warned us.

We returned again a week ago and were very pleased. Parking was fine. Were met and ushered to an inside table (our choice) and server appeared quickly to offer beverages while reviewing the menu. Companion had lobster roll, warmed with hot butter, I opted for grilled swordfish. Both were cooked perfectly and well presented with choice of potato, rice, etc.... More

Lobsterman's has opened for the 2014 season. We dropped in for dinner the other night. We both had 1/2 rack of ribs. Usually they are awesome, but, this time I really did not enjoy them. While they did fall of the bone, they were dry and too chewy. I took home what I didn't eat and doctored them up a... More

My husband and I had lunch here today. I don't like seafood or meat. There was a grilled cheese sandwich on the menu which was $8.99.....a ridiculous price for a grilled cheese sandwich. However it included bacon and tomato. I asked for a plain grill cheese sandwich like what was on the kids' menu for $4.99. When my lunch came... More

After reading naysayers reviews, I'm beginning to wonder if they ate at the same place we dio! Yes, parking during evening rush hours can be tricky and difficult, but if one goes earlier, say 5 PM, there's usually no problem. We've visited there annually for over 5 years,. We always opt to eat inside...there are table linens and real plates... More

On the day before we left Boothbay Harbor, we drove over to East Boothbay to check out the ocean views. We noticed the Lobsterman's Wharf on our way back. We weren't sure we wanted to stop, because the outside of the place wasn't very inviting and we didn't notice many cars in the parking lot. Well, we're glad we decided... More

this was a reasonable find, but not quite what we had hoped. It was within walking distance of where we were staying. Unfortunately we were ushed from our table at 9.30pm as they wanted to close.

Had the twin lobster special which was great, but the best part of our meal was the NE Clam Chowder. Both my wife and I thought it was the best we ever had anywhere! Going back tonight for more! View on the deck it spectacular.
