Lobster with a view

This was my second visit to Browns Wharf Restaurant having stay at the Inn a few years back. Was on motorcycle trip then and had to bring my wife back to enjoy the view and the best working harbor in Maine. Dinner was great and the views or the working harbor are fantastic

My husband had the turkey dinner served on Sundays. A large portion but he ate every bite! We shared the clam chowder which was nice and thick. The restaurant is on the waterfront and has beautiful views. Outside you can walk on the boardwalk and see boats. A very nice evening.

My husband and I was here about a month ago. Love the view, the services was good but the food wasn't all that.

This restaurant is situated right on the harbor, with magnificent views in every direction. It was closed Tuesday nights when we were there, but open for breakfast Wednesday morning. Breakfast was quite yummy (I had stuffed blueberry French toast) and the waitress was as friendly and informative as she could be. 49 restaurants open in summer; 3 in winter. Yikes!

This hotel offers a delicious turkey dinner on Sunday. You can est in the dining room or on a warm day out on the deck overlooking Booth Bay Harbour. If you get tired of eating lobster try the turkey dinner you will not be disappointed. The staff are very welcoming and they make you feel you are the only one... More

We ventured down the road later in the evening and this place was really busy. We sat at the bar had a cocktail and some Oysters which were really fresh. The bartender didnt have much to say but the service was on point.

We stayed four nights at the hotel and enjoyed several meals at the restaurant. The food is very good and fresh. The lobster is so fresh! The lettuce was was locally grown, so crisp and tasteful. Breakfast was also very good. The employees of the hotel and the restaurant were very nice. We have stayed at Brown's Wharf several times... More

My Husband and I "ran away" for 2 nights, and chose to eat here one night. I had the Baked Stuffed Haddock with Lobster sauce,, and my husband who rarely eats seafood, decided he had to have some, since we were at the ocean, and he ordered the Fried Seafood combo. From the French Onion Soup, (although really salty), fresh... More

One of the fancier places in Boothbay Harbor to eat at. Their brunch (when available) is outstanding, and the dinners provide excellent seafood fare. A bit pricey, but worth it. And of course, great views.
