It used to be so good a few years ago! I recommended it to everyone. Now I don't. And when I went recently, it just couldn't have been worse. Maybe next year it will be under new management and things will improve. I certainly hope so.

This restaurant has been under new management for a year or so. I had heard good things about it. My husband and I have eaten there several times in the past but not with the new owner. When another couple suggested it, I was happy to try it. We arrived and selected an inside table. The other members of our... More

I have gone to the Slipway multiple times over the summer and always had great food and service. Yesterday was a different story. While the food was good, as usual, the raw oysters fresh and the haddock basket was huge. Their servers, on the other hand seem to lack any knowledge of what it takes to provide customers with a...

Not a good experience at all. It was very hot and sunny and the deck with umbrellas was closed off. They refused to brimg an umbrella to the tables they were serving and on top of that that they were very rude and unpleasant. We live in Rockland and we had our family here from Australia. We will never go... More

Beautiful hot sunny day, went to Slipway for lunch. Mistake. All the tables on the deck with Umbrellas (for shade) closed off! A few empty unshaded tables in the baking sun - unbearably hot and unpleasant. Told that no way of sitting on the deck as not enough waiting staff. Went inside - hot and nasty - told (rudely) that...

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.
