“Oysters are it!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

The oysters were fresh and good but expensive. They only other food they had was sushi because of a wedding upstairs??? It was good but we had to wait. Fortunately, Michael the waiter was excellent despite managements lack of preparedness for the day. It was Friday night as well which made the limited menu even more surprising.

“Great Place for Oysters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

If Oysters are your thing,not for me personally, then this is the place in that area. If you prefer to just have drinks at the bar, then you have your choice of 5 different bars in the restaurant. We only got appetizers, and felt they were just so, so

“My favorite in boothbay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

If you're a foodie this is the place for you. Tables on the water and an extensive menu of creative twists on traditional seafood. I had the swordfish wrap with duck bacon...excellent. also had the cold beef lettuce cups for an appetizer. Very good value for the money...plus live entertainment most nights. Def recommended.
