What a treat for the landlubbers who were gorging on fresh lobster and enjoying the beautiful early-fall day on the dock! This place is as cool as it gets (and that's not a reference to weather!). You can order prepared seafood meals or you can...More

Wonderful Lobster out on the water overlooking the harbor. This place just screams Maine and the service and Lobstah are out if this world. Wooden tables with a walk up order and self pick up style dining. We ate at sunset and the water was...More

Enjoyed the chowder and lobster feast. Service was personable and quick. We went back a couple days later and ate lunch on the deck.

Our first lobster roll on a one week trip to Maine. We were so excited, stopped here for lunch as soon as we got to town. It was a bit pricey for what is essentially a lobster shack on the docks, but the portion was...More

It doesn't get more delicious or authentic than this. Try the soft shell twins, 1.25 - 1.5 pounds. Start with some fried shrimp and onion rings. A Maine beer and you're set!

This use to be a favorite but now the food is overpriced and not typical of Maine. The so called lobster roll is just a bunch of large tough pieces of meat dumped on a roll. You need fork & knife to eat it and...More

Management changed two years ago and we've eaten their both years. Lobster doesn't change because management does. The food is just as good as before.

They should be open by then. Boothbay Harbor is a great place for seafood restaurants. You don't need to go fancy. We'll be there again for the tall ships and the fireworks in July. Can't wait for that lobster. Have a... More
