Although it was fun to sit out on the long deck, my haddock sandwich tasted as if the fish had been frozen and thawed. I was not pleased, even though my husband enjoyed his burger. The service was friendly, but we won't return.

Overpriced for portion size. Ordered and was served the flounder lunch special but was charged almost double for the dinner item which we did not receive or order. They did fix the bill but pretty lame

We saw a menu for The Slipway in the cottage we are renting near Thomaston. So we stopped in for lunch. The restaurant is located on the Thomaston waterfront and affords a great view of the St. George River. The menu is quite extensive, even though all the food is prepared from scratch. My companion ordered one of the daily... More

This was a great place to have lunch. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the water as well as the delicious food. The staff was attentive and the place crowded. I recommend wholeheartedly.

We have been going to the Rockland area for our family vacation for about 40 years...we loved the restaurant where the chef used to cook, and when we found this place and knew he had come here, we knew we had to try it. We were not let down. The atmosphere is wonderful. The deck on the tidal river is... More

We went to the Slipway last night. Although it was a catered affair and I can't comment on the day to day operation, I can comment on the wonderful setting. The Slipway sit in a marina with a beautiful harbor view. Seating on a long pier into the bay is just spectacular. The sunset was so nice. The staff were... More

Not to hard to find but worth looking for the place. We had their lunch baskets of oysters , fried clams and a lobster roll. Fantastic, Fantastic! You eat on a wharf and overlook the water. Different atmosphere but very Maine.

Thomaston has the charm of a cute Maine town without the ritz associated with neighboring towns of Camden and Rockland. Slipway offers a lovely menu with fresh ingredients. It's creative, yet not too out of the box. It can be casual or dressed up. The views and ambiance are excellent. And we received great service. I will definitely find myself... More

The Slipway has extremely good food and atmosphere, the wait staff was a bit inattentive, I ate there twice this summer, the first time I did not love it (do not order the beet salad it is nothing special with not very much more than beets and lettuce). The second time was much better, as I had a more traditional... More
