Was there just last week for 5 days enjoying the beautiful Boothbay Harbor region. I had been to this spot @37 years ago when it was of course under a different lobster co op name. I still have the photos of us on the deck like it is today enjoying our lobster. The restaurant today is much the same in... More

Four of us enjoyed dinner of lazy lobster, and seafood stew with mussels, lobster, shrimp, etc. The deck overlooked the harbor, providing a beautiful view of a lighted marina. Service was good, wine was good, food was excellent....a special evening with friends.

Get away from the crowd, walk across the footbridge and enjoy a fantastic lobster roll. Sit outside, grab a beer and experience a real treat. Highly recommend it!!

Someone recommended this place when we mentioned we wanted a lobster roll. We were not disappointed. Lots of tender lobster with a bit of mayonnaise on a buttered, grilled roll. Being from New England, I can say it was one of the best lobster rolls I have ever had. The views aren't too bad either and the staff was very... More

Ordered a lobster roll, which LOOKED wonderful... large pieces of lobster lightly coated with mayo on a nicely toasted roll... tasted good too, but meat was tough. Same with the pint of fried clams that my husband ordered... tough & rubbery. Will not eat there again.

Weekend getaway with the girls and we all agreed on one thing. This place had the best lobster roll we had ever had. Ten and a half ounces of fresh lobster in a grilled roll. We're Bostonians and have been eating lobster our whole lives, but this by far was the best.

We were originally going to Lobster Dock but met people returning and said it was too busy. I ordered the small lobster with a baked potato. It took a while for me to pick it up but it was very good. My husband ordered the fried shrimp but thought they would be much bigger. They had a good band playing... More

Enjoy a great view of Boothbay Harbor while they cook your fresh seafood meal - a great stop just a bit away from the bustle of the downtown. Always nice options on the menu.

Ordered twin lobsters & was not disappointed - they were sweet & tasty. It came with 2 sides - I had the baked potato & side salad. For $1.95, I also got the corn on the cob, which was sweet & succulent! Best Maine lobster experience ever! Go try it - you won't regret it!!!

Thank msgersten
