My husband and I came here for dinner, hungry after a day on the water and hiking. The food was very good and the portions were generous.

Nothing fancy but the food was decent. It was late and we couldn't get a dinner reservation so it would not have been my first choice but the service was good.

Four of us came for dinner and enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere was pleasant, as was our server. I had a Mai Tai ($8.95) and the Pu Pu Platter for one ($13.95). Both were delicious. In fact, the boneless spareribs were the best I think...I have ever tasted, not over cooked and dried out and chewy like they usually are. I did taste my companion's cashew chicken and found it very bland for my taste, but she enjoyed it. I would definitely come again!More

Great service. Food was OK. Sauces were very soupy. The wonton soup was excellent. I had the one person special with beef and broccoli. It was OK. Not super flavorful. Husband had seafood lo mein. Full of seafood but sauce was super watery. Again. Very...good service! Lots of parking.More

We have visited Boothbay Harbor for many years. This was our first visit to the China by the Sea. We ordered crab rangoons, shrimp fried rice, and shrimp egg foo young. The crab rangoons were the best we have had anywhere. The rice and egg...foo young were also very good. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. The portions were large. We have enough for at least two more meals. We will definitely return the next time we are in the Boothbay area.More
