We tried this place on the strength of the tripadvisor reviews. It was very good. Our party had a wide range of dishes ranging from the lobster corn chowder (best I have ever had!!!!) to fried calamari and clams basket. Huge quantity of food per serving. The pork shanks were amazing. They serve craft beer for a very reasonable price... More

We liked Khalers so much we ate here twice on our trip. Everything we ate was delicious and very reasonably priced. The Spicy Lobster Corn Chowder was amazing!!! If you go definitely get it. Their shrimp and lobster cakes were also delicious, as were their fish and chips. The wait staff were all very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely... More

We've just tried Kaler's this year and were so glad we did. A very simple, down to earth place with a friendly staff and really good food. Do NOT miss their clam chowder - it is a MUST. The lobster was done to perfection - so sweet and easy to "unshell". Prices are more than reasonable. Without a doubt we... More

We stopped in for a snack and a couple of beers as we were exploring Boothbay Harbor and we're glad we did. The appetizers (particularly the potato skins) were very good and the beer was cold. Great spot to watch the comings and goings in the harbor.

We ate inside as there was no room on the deck. The lobster roll at a large amount of lobster on a toasted New England roll. I did enjoy the lobster, but it is not something I would have again. I have a particular taste for Hellman's Mayo and this was not it. Good service, nice place. Would eat there... More

There are a number of places right on the harbor and all look equally good. The parking attendant recommended Kaler's and we were quite happy with our decision to eat here. The waitress and hostess were very welcoming. We all ordered some form of the seafood platter. I was happy that I ordered the 1/2 portion because even that was... More

We enjoyed happy hour on the dock! Service was fast,friendly and the food was great! The fried shrimp,haddock and clams were not greasy like other fried food we have had at home. The batter was light and flavorful!
