We had dinner at the Rocktide Inn during our stay in Boothbay Harbor. My husband and I both had a fried seafood plate and it was great. It was a perfect portion size - not piled so high you can't eat it and not too small. The fish was very fresh and it was not heavily fried. We sat at... More

My husband and I stopped at the Rocktide Inn for a drink and early dinner while visiting Boothbay Harbor. We were thrilled to find that the restaurant offered a 'Happy Hour' which included discounted drinks and apps. Our server was attentive but allowed us ample time to sit on the deck, enjoy the view and listen to the live music.... More

It's true. This was one of the best meals we have ever consumed. We wanted someplace special because were here for my birthday. We picked the right place. From the nautical ship models to the attentive wait staff, the visit was superb but the highlight was the wonderful food we were served. I think I should have another birthday again... More

Had a wonderful lunch out on the deck. There was live entertainment and a grill chef who entertains as well! People arrived by boat tying up to the dock. Our server was so attentive and helpful. Our food was hot, delicious and fresh. Recommend highly!!

We have enjoyed dining at the Rocktide Restaurant for years and years. But this year, we were so disappointed. While the view from the back patio is lovely, the food was completely lacking and also arrived cold. We were so sad to see such a favorite place go down hill.

I had the filet mignon and my husband had the surf & turf. Both meals were excellent. Our waiter with the red hair was very efficient and attentive. We enjoyed eating to the music of the pianist.

We stayed at the Rocktide for 4 nights and it was perfectly enjoyable. The room was very clean and really big. The shower was awesome. The bathroom was tiny, but very clean. The room had some quirky things about it since it is an older hotel, but nothing that would discourage me from staying here again. And they had good... More

Wanted to have a nice breakfast so we stopped in. Even we were not guests of the hotel we were welcomed. Nice omelette station with lots of choices.

Our room had great view of harbor. They have a room map on line. I requested a particular room on the water side and they were able to accommodate me. The decor was older but clean. We could walk into town over the walking bridge and the trolley comes right to the hotel so very convenient. Our breakfast was included... More
