We had a lovely dinner at Oliver's the last night They were open for the season. The food matched the beautiful view. Our waiter William was a real pro. We both had hamburgers which was a nice change From lobster. Delicious oysters and interesting salad.

If you are visiting Boothbay, and want a spot that is more local and not that "tourist trap" feel to it, find the place. It was recommended by a boat tour captain, and it is worth it. Good food, great views, limited menu but overall...More

Charming cafe with inside and outdoors seating on a pretty little harbor located on Southport Island (a 10 minute drive from Boothbay Harbor). Very good food and service although food can be a little delayed when there is a large crowd.

Service and fried clams were terrible. We had our appetizer before utensils and the waitress told us they were in the dishwasher and waiting for them to be done. Service is probably bad because they automatically add 20% gratuity. The view is nice though.

Sorry to hear that you did not have great service. We are known for having the best fried clams. Were you just angry that your utensils were late??
