It was our first meal and Maine and it did not disappoint. My aunt and I ordered the lobster roll but instead of it coming out on an actual roll, it was served on sliced baguette layered with lobster, tomatoes and Swiss cheese, toasted so it was all warm and melted together. It was sooooooo good! One of those meals... More

For a restaurant in such a picturesque spot, the interior of this establish is somewhat shabby. But the dirty carpets and tired looking furniture give way to a sprightly menu describing a tasty selection of seafood and other dishes. Service was great (Michael), and the hostess was very friendly. I chose a Seafood Pie which the menu suggested was 'made... More

Friends who live in the area chose Archer's and the location on the pier is lovely. Unfortunately not much else was. We had to wait for a table inside as our friend's didn't want to eat on the deck which looked much more appealing. We had drinks at the bar and bar service was good, bartenders friendly - nothing to... More

Archer's is right near downtown Rockland, but has a "get away from it all" feeling. Great view. Gorgeous spiral stairway in bar area. I actually had a burger (near end of trip), and it was excellent. Husband loved the Shipyard beer. Nice place.

From Chris, Stacy and Shina at the bar to all the wait staff, service is wonderful and there are many choices to make. We ate here for lunch, dinner and some happy hours. Wonderful Summer Salad with lots of protein choices, great Chowder, the Lobster BLT and full lobster dinner sated all of our guests on our visits. During our... More

Stopped here for lunch and everyone in our party left full and happy. I had the skipper and I must say this sandwich was one of the highlights of my vacation. My wife had the fish tacos and still uses them as a comparison to other fish tacos anytime she orders them to this day. I will definitely be back... More

When my husband and I were walking around the city and exploring the area we were unsure about where to go to eat. I enjoy the water so we thought we would try Archer's and we loved it. The hostess, Michele, squeezed us in since we did not have a reservation. It was a cute little table on the deck... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as one of the best places on the water. Indeed the views are great and if I stopped by just for a glass of beer it would probably be great. However we went there for dinner. The appetizers were too fried. The (famous) Maine lobsters that you could choose for your dish looked... More

We were wandering around Rockland looking for a place to have dinner, although neither of us was very hungry- we still needed to eat. Deciding on a water view we took a chance and went down to the Pier. "Archer's" looked inviting so we went in and were immediately seated by a friendly hostess. The atmosphere was a little noisy...
