This restaurant is located on a pier and the food was delicious. We had lobsters of course as we were in the area where lobsters are caught. I highly recommend this restaurant as it had a great menu, but when in lobster country, eat lobster

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!

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.
