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

We stayed in the Tavern Suite with 5 people. Room had all amenities you'd want with a great view right on the water. However, the fold out couch was not comfy for odd man out. We had dinner and drinks in the restaurant right off the deck from the room. Food was great! We had steak and lobster. Both of... More

We had dinner here one night while staying in Lubec. Waitstaff is really friendly. They were out of a number of key items, and a bit confused on others (we were told they were out of lobster, which one member of our party planned to get, but as it turned out later, they were just out of the dishes that...

Based on the recommendation of our B & B innkeepers and Trip Advisor, we decided to give the Water Street Tavern a try for our second night in Lubec. We were not disappointed! We had a friendly, efficient young waitress and sat at a table by the window overlooking the water. There were about 16 others in the restaurant, probably... More

We caught the Tavern open on a Thursday night. It wasn't season yet, but they were open Thursday thru Sunday. We just stopped in for drinks. I settled on a local brewed stout and my wife had wine that the waiter suggested. My wife said the wine was excellent and my stout wasn't too shabby either. We met the owner,... More
