Gorgeous setting and great service

Our first evening in Rockland we wanted to be outside for dinner and overlooking the water. Archer's on the Pier fit the bill. I am rating it 4 stars for its location and the wait staff. The food was a little lacking sadly. The Lobster was excellent of course. Sides that came with Lobster, not so... read more

We traveled up the coast for our annual trip to Rockland and Archer's. The food continues to be consistently excellent with a large choice of lobster and crab options, in addition to non-seafood options. The portions are healthy and provide a value for money many times lost in such a setting. The outside deck provides great harbor views. The waitstaff... More

Have been here many times and always find it excellent. Their fish tacos are to die for along with other seafood dishes. This place is a must try for anyone traveling through.

Great food paired with a great view combined with fantastic service is exactly what our part of six experienced at Archers. We had reservations, so we were seated right away. The waiter was friendly, humorous and accommodating. Archers is well worth the price!

Our last night of vacation with drove down to Archers for lobster after hearing someone on a hike recommend it to another. First off the town of Rockland is a bit seedy. We parked at the Harbormasters planning a nice walk on the Rockland Boardwalk to Archers. There were signs all over about surveilance cameras which made me a bit... More

By all appearances this should be a good restaurant. Twice this summer we have sat at the bar and ordered food and drink. Both times the amount we sign for has been altered by the bartender after we have left. I understand the difficulty of seasonal work, but this is a bit much.

We met here with a group of friends and ordered the same dinner. The scallops were very good. I discovered later that my friends had gotten 4 scallops on their salad and I had 1 less. For the price, the salad was on the high end and not that special. The wait staff was great. We enjoyed food and drink... More

Yes, we really drove 2,512 Miles (Roundtrip) for Lobster Dinner at Archer's on the Pier in Rockland,/Maine, Lobster Capital of the World. We had a fantastic table outside overlooking the bay and excellent service. Oysters on the half shell & glass of chardonnay wine were the perfect start. Then we both ordered whole lobster; well, Dave did order the 'Twin... More

My husband and I were on vacation last week and visited Archer's for dinner. This has been our tradition for three years now. We continue to return because of the beautiful view, friendly staff and good food. However, this year was different. The manager interrupted the hostess while we were talking with her requesting to be seated outside. We did... More

Archer's is a higher end type of restaurant and offers great seafood and other signature menu items. I would recommend dressing semi-formal and if possible, eating outside on the deck provides for the full experience. Great place to watch the sunset and grab a drink and a lobster roll.
