This place offers lobster rolls and more that won't cost you an arm and a leg. We drove by Sprague's and Red's and the lines were ridiculous plus it started to drizzle. I'm so glad we came across thia hideaway!

We wanted fast and good seafood. We spotted the roadside hut and took a chance. Karen was friendly, covid responsible, fast and even brought an extra potato salad out when the husband returned to say how much he enjoyed it. Picnic tables in back- don't...let the single one in front scare you off. A brand new port a john too!!More

Best lobster around! Lobster rolls are overflowing with lobster and no fillers!! The the Haddock Club is amazing. If you like haddock - it’s the bomb! Or just order the regular haddock sandwich which is also overflowing with fish. All good food made by a...wonderful lady (and her old man is pretty cool too). 😉More

The lobster rolls at Karen's Hideaway were the best my wife and I have ever had. Incredibly fresh lobster meat and extremely generous portions, twice that of many places, all lovingly served by Karen and her assistant. Just minutes from Boothbay Harbor, don't miss out...on this place.More

My GF and I stopped here on a whim, got the fish sandwich and the haddock BLT. Food was excellent but the woman behind the counter was so kind and nice, she made us feel like family!

Not as good as the first time. The picnic area really needs to be cleaned up and maintained as customers leave. Also The Only Way You Will Get A Great Meal Is If KAREN Herself Is Minding The Store.

Stopped in for a quick bite to go not realizing Karen's closed within five minutes. She could tell I was about to leave due to the posted hours and went out of her way to not only introduce herself but told me to take my...time ordering and that she was happy to cook anything I'd like. The double cheeseburger was one of the best I've had in the Boothbay area- along with the price, the fried scallops were fantastic and great portion size and the potato salad....incredible.I ate three of them. A new favorite spot with great food, value and wonderful customer service. Thank you Karen for the hospitality and overall experience.More

We had stopped here for a quick bite based on other TA reviews but were sorely disappointed! The woman behind the counter kept telling us how she hated seafood and found it “disgusting”! That should have made us leave, but we carried on. We tried...their fried lobster and fried scallops. The lobster was tasteless and was like chewing on rubber bands! The scallops were the worst we have ever eaten! Not fresh, definitely frozen! The melted butter was not butter! More like yellow cooking oil! 37 bucks for the worst seafood ever! There are so many excellent eateries in the area, so please, don’t bother stopping here!More
