Oysters on the half-shell were large, plump briny and delicious.Lobster mac and cheese was also excellent as was the salmon over salad. The blueberry ice cream was also a lovely treat. The waitstaff were lovely. We will be back.

About the only thing going for this place is its location. Nice view of the Harbour, but otherwise just another overpriced, underserved, no flavor, tourist trap. I doubt if the locals eat here. But if you want a view, then this place will work OK.

Stopped in for dinner in for dinner on our way back to Massachusetts from our summer home in Nova Scotia. It was a very busy night for the staff. We went on to the wait list and mentioned it would be nice to have a window view and we're told we had 1 party ahead of us. After 45 minutes... More

GPS took us to previous address but we finally found it right near the water in downtown Belfast. Good variety on the menu, prompt cocktail service. The Seafood Provencale, Lobster Mac 'n Cheese and Shrimp and Grits were all excellent, oysters were also great.

Had a meal for dinner outside. Salmon with maple glaze is so good. The same with side dish of butternut squash! Courteous service.

We went to Nautilus for a late lunch on a sunny afternoon - too hot to sit in the sun, but perfect in the shade & a fabulous view of the harbor. Our server, Nicole, was friendly & efficient. My husband ordered the maple glazed salmon with garlic mashed potatoes & butternut squash. His dinner was delicious. The salmon was... More

Dinner outside near the water was very nice. Busy place with not much parking; Had to park a block away. Service was okay but not great...a requested water refill never occurred. Cocktails and wine were pricey. Food was well prepared and presented but was bland. Even my wife's Cajun shrimp and grits dish was quite bland. Carrot cake desert was... More

Loved this restaurant - sat outside on the deck overlooking the harbor. My husband had the Seafood Pie and I had the macaroni & cheese with a Caesar salad. Delicious!
