Stopped in because it was raining and we were just checking out the area coming back from Campobello. Very classy Tavern and the food was amazing- they have chefs for cooks! Darn- and it shows! Excellent!

Stopped by for dinner this evening just as the air was cooling down. We were told no seats were available inside, only on the deck. We asked if we could move inside when a table became available and were told yes. 50 minutes later, we were still waiting for our entrees, and the air was decidedly cold. I went inside... More

We've eaten in a lot of restaurants and this ranks way up there, in our estimation. The place is very casual and friendly, too. We had fresh halibut and it was fantastic. Then a strawberry/rhubarb crisp that was phenomenal. Jim, the owner and his wife, Judy, were both there and played wonderful host and hostess. We are so glad that... More

After eating in almost all of Lubuc's restaurants, we tried Water Street Tavern for our last meal in the town. The steamed lobster was excellent and came with vegetables instead of fries. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. They serve the Lubec Brewing Co. beer on tap which was very good. Definitely try this restaurant while visiting Lubec.

Sounds like a triple threat, but it delivered on all counts. We just wanted a light dinner, so she had a bowl of seafood chowder and I had a Ceasar salad and the crab cake appetizer. All three were delicious. Fortunately, we'll be in town for several nights and can make a more sincere foray into the menu !! Give... More

I visited the Water Street Tavern at the recommendation of my innkeeper and was not disappointed in the least. From the sounds of it, this was the first Wednesday of the season the restaurant was open with this being the first season for the new owners. My server was engaging and fun to chat with. She'd tried everything on the... More

The atmosphere was cozy, warm, friendly, and the food was great! Nice taste of local culture, too. There was live entertainment the evening we ate dinner there. Would definitely recommend eating/drinking there if you are near Lubec, ME.

We were in Lubec for three days and ate at this gem of a place everyday. On Friday evening we enjoyed live music by a local musician. It was a hoppin' atmosphere, for sure. The food was DELICIOUS!! The staff were very friendly as well. It was a real hometown place.
