After walking through the woods for an hour, our reward was lunch at the Harborside Tavern. The room overlooks the harbor and we enjoyed the lobster rolls, burgers, pulled pork, and a glass of Chardonnay. Service was good, and the prices reasonable.

Not the cheapest restaurant in Boothbay but most certainly one of the best. I have never had a bad meal here. Since I live here in Boothbay I bring my family and friends to the Harborside. Well worth a visit. .

We ate here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Food was well cooked, standard American fare, and the wait staff was warm and very capable.I really enjoyed their salads which had local sweet lettuce, something I had not tasted before.
