The service was horrible and the food was about the same. Go somewhere else! The only upside was the location which was overshadowed by the poor service and food.

My boyfriend and I dined out at this restaurant after a hard week of work. Neither of us had eaten here for quite some time (the last time wasn't very enjoyable either) and figured we'd give it another shot. We ordered crab cakes and bacon wrapped scallops for appetizers. When they came the scallops were good but came with only... More

We stopped into this restaurant for dinner one evening as the sun was setting. We sat outside and the views were beautiful. Our waiter, Mike, was excellent and made us immediately comfortable. We had a whole lobster, and halibut with goat cheese and blueberry sauce. Both were spectacular! Mike's easy demeanor and helpful hints get 2 thumbs up!

Great views of the water and the boats. The food was excellent. Raw bar and a wood burning oven to roast and smoke the local oysters!! Beer and drink prices ok. Great Bloody Mary's if you like them spicy!

We had dinner twice at Archers during a recent visit to Rockland. Both times we made last minute reservations and we were able to secure a table for a late dinner. We were seated in a timely manner and all staff were really friendly and attentive. The fish was delicious and fresh and prepared in a pleasingly uncomplicated manner. I... More

Have been here multiple times for lunch and dinner. The outside seating is superb, the restaurant has received great publicity and is very lively. I was there this past week and have to say the food fell short of my expectations and those of my friends. The seasoning in their salad dressings were disappointing, the mussels tiny and only about... More

We have had lunch and dinner at Archers. During busy summer months, especially weekends, expect to wait for a table, often even with reservations. The food is great! Cioppino excellent, as is Sole Florentine. The staple fried Haddock is light and not overcooked. Bar staff is friendly, and waiting for a table at either inside or outside bar leads to... More

We stopped here along our drive from Boston to Bar Harbor. The food was solid - great lobster roll and fried shrimp. The outside seating had a great view of the water and we met some interesting people who were summering on their boat. If you're driving through Rockland it is a great place for lunch.
