Very nice

I have eaten here twice now and both times were very good. The food was good and the atmosphere is causal. There is an outside deck, but it was too cold when I went. It looks like it is really nice. There are white lights outside over the deck. I would defiantly recommend this restaurant for... read more

The haddock sandwich and Crab roll were really good. Nice views on the water. Friendly staff took care of us and the baby.

my husband and I saved our lobster dinner for rockand because we heard it was the best town in Maine for the dish. We were referred to Archer's because of the view and, unfortunately, made the decision to eat there. We sat at a great table by the window and ordered beers. When we were ready to order, about 20...

Down on the harbor, around the backside of the yacht club, there is Archer's. The restaurant offers a good array of dishes, particularly seafood, and a wide variety of cocktails in a bright, airy, big windowed room. A very pleasant lace to relax, watch the hardworking chef's crew in the open kitchen, and enjoy a meal. Casual dress, but smart... More

We are semi-locals and haven't been in here over a year-and boy have we been missing out! The daily specials as well as the regular menu will not disappoint. The service was excellent as well-Thanks Staci! The portions are large and they will accommodate special requests(I also ordered the buffalo chicken tenders with light spice-awesome) and huge pieces. Nice selection... More

Great place for dining right by the water. Had a lobster stuffed potato. It was excellent and so delicious. Finished the whole thing and it was just right for the serving with Caesar salad. Enjoyed a creamy chocolate cream pie that was so divine and smooth to finish the meal!

Considering the location and view, I was hoping for a pretty nice place. It wasn't quite. Very noisy, and there was some kind of stale smell even with the doors open. A local party was going on, noisy and raucous, if not the restaurant's fault. Attractive blue table cloths, lovely outside decks and nearby walking paths. Food is OK. Overall,... More

We stopped in on a whim Christmas Eve afternoon for a late lunch/early dinner and were so glad we did. My husband had the lobster chowder which he said and I saw was full of lobster meat and delicious. We shared an appetizer of crab cakes, calamari, and shrimp was which fabulous. I had the combo of friend haddock and... More

We've been to Archer's several times and have not been disappointed. The food and service are very good and the scenery is outstanding.
