Kaler's has a really nice varied menu and wish I would have gone for dinner to try the lobster pie~~~too rich for me at lunch. My husband had the clam chowder which was really good and we both just opted for burgers today, which were good. Onion rings were very good and the key lime pie was great!

Casual atmosphere and great views from the outside deck. We had some of the best fried food we have had in a long time.I also ordered a cup of the clam chowder. Very good and creamy but had a strong sherry taste. I would recommend the combo plate/ half portion. Still plenty of food. I had the haddock and shrimp.... More

We were looking for lunch before boarding a whale watch. It's right on the pier so great location. Everyone from age 4-59 in our party was very satisfied with their food. Kids menu is good with several choices for the littles.

My daughter and I were there on a weekday night. It was busy -but we did get an outdoor high table with stools right away. But, the service was SLOW. I think we waited an hour from the time we sat down to the time our dinner was served. Time was OK as we enjoyed the outdoor view. My daughter's... More

A really neat place on the harbor and filled with lots of culture. Food was good, especially fish and chips and the shrimp roll. I would go again.

The seafood is very good and the service is quite fast considering the number of diners during the busiest 5-8 o'clock hours.

EVERYONE recommended this place, so who am I to NOT go? I was certainly NOT disappointed. And when in Maine, you eat like a local! Nice atmosphere, staff, beverages and food. Easy on the expense account too.

The food was pretty good, but the service was so slow. We were trying to make it to a whale watching cruise and waited for 45 minutes just to get our food. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend for someone who isn't in a hurry.

Thank mustbmorgan
