New owners. The restaurant has great ambiance but needs to improve there menu and chef. They also used to have a pianist which added to it's appeal. Oh well !

Went with party of six. Sat outside on deck overlooking river. Food was excellent and the views down to water were outstanding. I had Shoremans Pie which included four large pieces of lobster, scallops and shrimp covered by mashed potato. Excellent. not greasy or too buttery. Just meat and fish. Also had clam chowder which was made with cream and... More

Each of us would love to have that enchanting dining experience in a charming port village. BEWARE! Outside views are obstructed. Our server was rude, aloof, and unprofessional. She slammed our water down and skirted to a larger table without comment or smile. We literally had to request that she take our order after waiting for nearly 20 minutes, watching... More

We ate here twice in July 2015. Food was very good, and you will enjoy the summer scene on the back area overlooking the channel and boats. Bring a sweater on a cool Maine summer night. Lazy Lobster was very good. Lobster BLT was excellent. Good food, relaxing spot - very good for families and children.

We ate here after a day of whale watching. We were tired from being on a boat for most of the day and chose to sit inside. We have a table with a great view of the water. I imagine the outside seating has an even better view. We weren't really looking for seafood, but our first choice of eatery... More

Beautiful views and comfortable setting, we had lunch here and started with a great spicy, bloody mary. The salads and sandwiches, and burgers were all delicious. My wrap was a bit dry, but other than that, the food and wait staff was terrific.

Went back to Arundel Wharf after 27 years and still loved it for the outdoor patio and delicious lobster rolls. The toasted buttered roll was perfect with the generous amount of lobster meat overflowing from it. The fried clam appetizer was also fabulous. Get there by 12:00 for lunch and you shouldn't have much of a wait. If you do,... More
