The food was decent, the prices aren't bad, the wait staff was friendly. The kids enjoyed watching the lobsters in the tank off the dock. I would recommend sitting outdoors if you can.

The absolute best lobster chowder we ate anywhere in Boothbay Harbor!! The wait staff was great and out door dining on the arbor just perfect.

This is not a fancy place But they do a great job at all the local sea food favorites. The bar is good too. The lobster pie is excellent. You can sit outside at picnic tables. This overlooks the bay. The prices are reasonable too -- a nice change from other local places.

We enjoyed our meal. We started with steamers and salad. For our entree we had a lobster pie in a puffed dough. It was on the small side and had only claw and knuckle meat, we also had the blacked salmon, it was tasty.

We have to make a trip here every time we visit Boothbay Harbor. They have the best lobster rolls and clam chowder and just tried their hot crab dip on our last visit. It was excellent. Highly recommend Kaler's.

Food is good but especially good during happy hour when appetizers and drinks are cheaper. Spicy lobster corn chowder was a bit pricey but delicious.

Had a yummy lobster roll and chowder! Very good food. Can sit out on the deck and eat by the ocean. Was recommended by a store owner who said locals eat there. Good choice.

My wife and I went here for one of our last meals before we left Boothbay Harbor, and we found it was a great deal for the area. She LOVED the baked lobster pie.

We ate a late lunch/early dinner and had excellent service and delicious sandwiches. Never felt pressure to finish our meals. Enjoyed the activity in the harbor while we ate.outside.

Nice location in Boothbay Village on the water. Sit in or out. Half size clam strip dinner was enough for average appetite and they were delicious! Price right & good service too! Will go again.

Thank carol k
