Beautiful spot, on a quiet little harbor. Great food choices. Love their lobster roll! Other great menu choices. Reasonably priced. Nice tables outside with heat lamps. Handicapped accessible bathroom.

Nice location and views. Had only lunch which was good. Nice staff...much more attentive and energetic vs some other places with burned out staffers.

The twist and turns of the roads to get here are well worth the effort. Easily the best lunch we had while in town on our trip. I had the amazing fish tacos, but I think I may have been out-ordered by my dining partners who both had the grilled turkey sandwich (the slice of apple and bacon put this... More

This small spot has the most picturesque scenery of Cozy Harbor and wonderful food as well - Must stop in if you are on Southport Island.

We found this place while touring around the general Boothbay area and saw it on google maps while using my smart phone for navigation. It's a really nice out of the way place with nice decor and views. We were seated in the top outside area overlooking the water and it was really nice. My wife had the warm lobster... More

What a stunning setting. Add to that, decent food with very friendly service; not to be missed. However, with 20+ years in this business, and 30+ years as an informed customer, to include the 20% tip automatically is just PLAIN WORING. This is common procedure for parties of 8 or more....even 6, OK. But for 2 people? It is almost... More

Dear customer, I am sorry you are upset by the 20% tip policy. We highlight it on the menu in BRIGHT NEON YELLOW!! We also highlight it in neon orange on the bill. There is no chance to miss those two announcements. We have it because people were not tipping the first year and decided in order to keep good... More

Adorable restaurant 5 miles out of Boothbay harbor........and a gorgeous ride there. Beautiful harbor and so comfortable outside with plenty of room.. We had the blackened fish tacos and the tuna, both very good. Casual, not fine dining, great for lunch or dinner. We decided to continue the drive around the island to see the views and were dissapointed. Not... More
