Nice spot...the best in the Harbor to watch the boat traffic and the daily "catch" brought in. If you don't know about lobstering, this is the place to learn! Great owners, hands-on people with wonderful humor. Good food, a little pricey compared to some places, but you do sit right over the water. Talk about an ocean view! Bar has... More

Great place to grab food to go or eat there. You can also see the steps involved in handling lobsters. If you want lobster this is the place to go. They do have tons of other choices seafood or not and everything is made fresh and to order right there.

8/20/16 My 3rd trip to the Lobster Wharf this year. All by boat but easily accessible by land. The "Drummerbuoy" pulls into a slip next to a lobster boat unloading it's catch. My favorite stop in Boothbay Harbor to see the owners Susan, Tom and Sue. They do a great job providing a great menu and seaside dining with a... More

They have bands play every weekend and you can hear them rock around the town! They are always busy in the summertime. You can order better fried calamari elsewhere, but their salads and fish sandwich are delicious! And it's amazing how much they fit in one little dock space. Go, you won't regret it.

This place was recommended by our tour boat captain. Less touristy then most of the other places. Excellent lobster and corn! I will return when I'm back in Boothbay

I enjoyed lunch at Boothbay Lobster Wharf. Ice cold Dogfish Head IPA and delicious lobster!! Incredibly friendly server. Great view of Boothbay Harbor. I feared it may have been a tourist trap, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great quality food and beverage.

I think this is our twenty-second year eating here. This is the best lobster roll in Boothbay, fresh, delicate, just a touch of mayo you would swear it was caught just an hour ago. It is a very large portion of lobster meat. (In my opinion, the second best lobster roll in Boothbay is at the Lobster Dock and it... More

My wife and I just finished a trip to Boothbay Harbor, Maine. While there we had a mission to find the best casual lobster dining. The Boothbay Lobster Warf won hands down. They have it all. Wonderful ambiance, great pricing, helpful staff and picking out your lobster was fun. We had the twin lobster choice. Get this.... 1 twin lobster... More
