Water Street Tavern & Inn is a nice place to get delicious, fresh seafood. We were happy we stopped there. Service is very friendly and attentive. Our server was Allison who always had a smile on her face. My husband and I shared the mussels as an appetizer, and while he had the blackened haddock, I went with the stuffed... More

Went there our first night in Lubec and did not consider going anywhere else the next night. Wonderful food -- we had great steamers, lobster, etc -- and the service was also great. This place feels like you are on the set of the old TV show Cheers -- everyone seems friendly and the atmosphere feels local (even with a... More

One of the top two restaurants in Lubec. Awesome owners and staff. Great menu, great atmosphere and great food and drink. The blueberry pie is to die for. Highly recommended.

This is our second trip to Lubec. Both last year and this year we frequented the Water Street Tavern. Service and atmosphere is always great. Food is the best in the area. Great lobster stew! Scallops are very good. Best value if your want a lobster dinner, they do it right! The staff is wonderful and within minutes make you... More

The Brazilian Seafood Stew was Great, The Scallops were good, The Green Beans were Awesome, (tossed with garlic butter.) the Caesar Salad just wasn't as good as last year, wasn't tossed at all, they served the dressing on the side (good Caesar's are tossed!) We really missed the fresh baked rolls we had last year. They must have eliminated them... More

Loved the food, atmosphere, wait staff and the great views of the bay from our table. They hit it out of the park in my book!

My wife and I had dinner at the Water Street Tavern. The restaurant is simple. We were warmly welcomed. The service was excellent. Our waitress was attentive and fulfilled our requests. We started out sharing a Maine berry salad. I did not like everything in the salad so the waitress had it deconstructed with separate cups of craisins, wild maine... More

We had lunch here after visiting nearby Quoddy Head state park. The open deck on the waterfront caught my eye immediately. The day was warm and sunny and so we enjoyed eating our cheeseburgers out there facing yet another lighthouse in Maine. Service was excellent and the food was good.

I've been to Lubec twice and both times ended up eating dinner at the Water Street Tavern. The first time was in early May of 2013. That time of year, before the summer tourist season, there weren't a lot of other choices, but we were quite pleased with the meal and the service. I was with two other folks and... More
