We found this restaurant last year and looked forward to our return. Known for its risottos...so we tried it...one with shrimp and one with chicken. They did offer a special on swordfish that looked good. Good apps. Always busy so book ahead if you can. Great summertime deck but it is a hike up to the top floor.

Great location but tired decor inside! This restaurant is located right on the wharf in Boothbay Harbor and has excellent views of the channel and nearby islands. The food is average and the decor is tired but the views of sunset are spectacular!

Have had many meals here over the years; the decor hasn't changed much but the new owners put in a great little bar that expands it's use from breakfast and lunch into dinner and drinks. Wish we had known the night before we would have stopped in for a drink on the deck. Breakfast had some interesting items on the... More

It was a very relaxing place, The breakfasts were excellent. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our choices. They have different omelet choices as specials which... More

We were there for two days and during that time we ate there twice. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere both times. Our food was good especially the clam chowder which I highly recommend.

Food was absolutely delicious! Good portions, Excellent preparation and OMG delicious! We passed on the continental breakfast provided by the hotel to eat here and we did not regret it. There were maybe a dozen local lobstermen eating besides us. I guess if it is good enough for locals it is good enough for anyone!

We stopped in for dinner and were looking for a good meal at a reasonable price. We entered the dining area and immediately to the left were greeted by the owner/chef working at the grill. This is a laid back location with a good waitress and somewhat casual décor. A local shop owner gave us the lead to try this... More
