They serve the lobster meat warn in a roll. This is not the norm I learned but I perfer it this way. Order at the window and go sit down and wait for your food. Enjoy a beer while you wait and look out onto the harbor.

Mediocre food and extremely overpriced. Many good food options in Boothbay Harbor, this is not one of them.

This place charges like it is fine dining but that is not what you get. You stand in line to order a little window like at a fair. Then you get a number, find a picnic table to sit at and they deliver your food to you. You also get to bus your own table when you are finished. For... More

Great location right on the bay. Fresh lobster cooked to order and delicious as is all the seafood we tried, Scallops, shrimps, clams and sitting outside on the dock watching the sun go down, what more can you want.

Had a nice lunch here on a weekday. Sitting on the deck with a view of the harbor was a treat. We both had clam rolls and they were fresh and tasty.

We had a girls week out and went to Lobster Dock for lunch. It was very casual. I had the chicken sandwich and we shared an onion blossom which was good.

We stopped for lunch on Columbus Day to find it they were closing for the season. Loved the atmosphere. Big porch for eating outside waterside. Indoor seating also available if weather is not good. You order at the window, go grab a table and they bring your food to you. Great selection of seafood from fried to steamed options. Get... More

We asked where we could get good seafood after our arrival in Boothbay Harbor. When we ordered at the Lobster Dock, we knew we were hitting a home run. The food selection was outstanding, and the fresh lobster were on the deck, waiting for you to choose a winner. The menu was extensive, and we look forward to our next... More

A small lobster pound style place in Bar Harbor. Nothing fancy, but clean and friendly with bright red freshly painted picnic tables. My food came quickly (a soft shell lobster dinner with very sweet corn on the cob and a biscuit) and a nice cold Shipyard Pumpkin. Waiter Shane was friendly and cheerful. It wasn't a crowded night and he... More

Best scallops I have ever eaten. We enjoyed our dinner so much we came back the next day. Captain on our boat trip also recommended this place. Beautiful weather so we ate outside.
