Heart of town on Water Street

Nice restaurant; lots of seafood, extensive wine list, full bar. Outside seating with view of the Narrows and town dock. Lodging upstairs. Great location.

We had one of the best meals of our Maine vacation here. The food was prepared beautifully and was absolutely delicious. My husband had scallops with risotto and I had salmon served with creamed spinach. For a starter, we had an onion tart that was sooooo good. There was also a nice wine list and the service was great.

Drinks were good and quaint atmosphere. We wanted some finger food/appetizers with drinks and there are only 3 options on the menu-all fried and not very good. Our server, who was very nice, greeted us by saying that if wanted dinner, they were out of all of their salads and chowders. Only 4 dinner options, which we did not try.... More

This little pub style restaurant is right on the harbor in Lubec village and offers very well-prepared food. The menu is limited but has selections suited to a variety of tastes. We spent two days in Lubec and had dinner here both evenings. On the first night I had a very interesting spinach salad made with dates and walnuts with... More

Great staff that let us stay late for drinks even though we were staying across the street. We were visiting some other folks that were staying here. They seemed to like the place a lot. Sorry I can't comment on the rooms or the food but the bar and the servers were top notch.

During our four day stay once we tried this restaurant we cancelled our other reservations and had dinner with them every evening. The delicious meals as prepared by Chef Pinto were amazing. When you go make sure to sit outside on the deck facing the harbor where beautiful sights and sunsets await. Ms. Pinto came out to talk with guests... More

Admittedly, choices are slim in Lubec, but in my opinion, this is the place for dinner. We ate at other places after having an excellent meal at the Water Street- None compared. The wine and drink selection is fabulous and the food is the best in the area. I had the risotto with scallops and it was absolutely first rate.... More
