The food at Robinson's is much improved over previous years! We ate lobsters, fried clams, scallops, and blueberry pie.This is a great location to eat outside while viewing boats coming and going. It is a fun and casual atmosphere with very good seafood. Also had crab cakes at another visit which were full of fresh crabmeat with no fillers--delish!! Do... More

Wish trip advisor would allow a 3.5 rating. This is an iconic waterfront restaurant on a dock, where the boats pull in and unload your fresh catch of the day. It is not bad - just nothing really special. Welcoming staff, good sized portions of food, an opportunity to see a working boat and wharf up close, and opportunity to... More

Wonderful seafood in a rustic seacoast setting. Lobsters, clams, scallops, haddock, etc. as well as some non-seafood choices. Best to eat on the dock or outside deck, but some inside seating is available.

My wife and I have been here 5 times in the last 3 years while visiting Boothbay Harbor. The menu is somewhat limited, but, after all, why do we come to Maine? Seafood! I like their oyster offerings, too. You can sit out on the wharf with a great view of the harbor or choose to eat inside or on... More

Sat outdoors on the pier literally 6 feet from where they off-load the lobster boats, watched the whole process from a front row seat and had a delicious meal and cold local brews. Plus we saw the swing drawbridge which is pretty cool because there aren't many of those left!

We ate here on 2 consecutive evenings in August 2016. On both occasions the restaurant was about half full but the speed of service was lacking. On our first night our appetisers took 40 mins to arrive, followed 5 mins later by the entrees. On the second ( when we didn't order an appetiser) the entrees took an hour. On... More

I have eaten at Robinson's Wharf 2-3 times in the past few years. I love the location and the food but they are expensive but every restaurant in town is expensive. Expect to wait 1 hour before you receive your food and look out for hungry seagulls I suggest that the bar shut people off from drinking before they have... More

Sorry Robinson's Wharf, but we left today very disappointed after having a good experience last year. There was a general lack of caring from the staff that turned us off. Yes, the beer was cold and the haddock sandwich was OK, but the fries that we paid $2 extra for, were warm at best and not worth a dime extra.... More

This feels like a very cool locals spot. It's a great location and the food is very good. It's a casual spot right on the water. I had the 1-1/2 pound lobster and it only cost $23.00. The table also had a steak and cheese and NY Strip which were great. Ally was our server and she was amazing.

Thank Drew D
