We really enjoyed our visit to Kaler’s in Boothbay Harbor. The bartender (John) was really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the different local beers available. Our server Laura was really polite and swift with anything we needed. Fantastic local lobster and amazing blueberry pie.

We love Kaler's. Delicious appetizers, great drinks, wonderful service. Pleasant surroundings, well-informed staff, fresh food, just a great family style restaurant on the docks in beautiful Boothbay Harbor. On a nice day tables on the dock are available. Desserts are amazing!
