Restaurant is on a pier (duh) and has a great view with an outside eating area. The service was super and the food we had was very good. We didn't eat any entrees as this was more of a light meal, but judging by what we had, I would return for a bigger meal.

Maine popcorn shrimp to start - classic. Kids fish and chips excellent, the onion rings and oysters had by my family similarly very good. Only downside of meal was the timing was all out with the mains arriving before the starters were finished - an irritating but not an uncommon occurrence in US resturants - but to be fair the...

I don't know why we don't think to go to Archer's more often. Every time we go the food is really good, the setting is outstanding, and overall - a good time! So, on a whim we decided tog o last night and had a great time. There was a seafood special with risotto and scallops that was outstanding. The... More

I get together for an early dinner every Tuesday evening with a group of old friends. Archers is definitely our favorite spot. We usually start out giving the staff a hard time about setting up a table for eight and ordering our usual drinks (they take it with good humor). Another tradition is a plate or two of Archer's excellent... More

We ordered our usual 2dozen oysters and they were perfect. Terry our waitress was absolutely wonderful. So personable and gave us excellent service. Then we got served the best lobster dinner ever. So fresh and cooked to perfection. Love the atmosphere and everyone's friendly attitude. A must go to place.

My oyster's were freshly picked, lobster was sweet, haddock prepared deliciously, great Albariño by the glass. Even sides like fresh corn on the cob were fresh and tasty. Highly recommend, great local feel to the place and your wallet.

Enjoyed attentive service, fantastic harbor view, and fresh, hot, delicious seafood casserole for an early dinner this evening. First visit to Maine. Plan to return for the beautiful scenery, friendly people, and fantastic food.

This was my first stop and my first lunch in Rockland. Came here directly after my flight and I was starving. The service was excellent. The waitstaff was attentive and my lobster roll and fries were the best ever. The lobster was full of delicious lobster meat and the fries were plentiful. Too bad they were out of sweet potato...

Archer's is a very solid choice in Rockland. Their lobster does not disappoint and their sides are solid. The wine list was very good. A disappointment was the view. Archers is right on the water and has an excellent view but it was compromised by enclosing the outdoor seating will a big plastic shelter that distorted the lovely view for... More
