We had an excellent dinner with scallops and a salmon salad. Also had two breakfasts at their extensive buffet. Great cooked-to order omelettes.

I arrived at 8:20pm on my first night, and I was hungry. I was told the restaurant closes at 8:30pm! Had to suspend check-in to go eat first, as I was tired and did not want to wander around in the dark looking for a meal elsewhere. That being said, the dinner was excellent. The breakfast buffet provided is also... More

Don't stay here unless you like struggling up flights of stairs with heavy luggage. Our "view of the harbor" was the front of the Boothbay Harbor Inn.........no view of the water from our room! As promised! Terrible experience

We ate dinner here and found the decor, food and service to be just ok. Nothing wrong but nothing special for the prices.

Great price at a wonderful nautical themed waterfront hotel at the BEST PLACE ON THE MAINE COAST...Great room, wonderful complimentary breakfast and a good restaurant. Try the Happy Hour Specials-Great deal! Place was much better than we expected and right in the middle of everything in Boothbay Harbor!!

We were pleased with our food and the service was excellent. Nice views especially for sunsets. We stayed across the harbor and walked across the footbridge...a nice evening stroll.

Reviewing the restaurant only. The Rocktide Inn restaurant provides either a fine dining experience, with white tablecloths and jackets needed or a bar area designed like a Tiki hut with a big bar and casual seating that has a clean, mid-century modern look with bright colors. There's also deck eating, right smack dab on Boothbay Harbor. You can drive your... More

Having dined here in the distant past, we thought we would try it for a special birthday dinner. They advertised happy hour from 3:30 to 5:30 and dinner beginning at 5:30. We arrived at 4:30 and had a glass of wine and appetizer atthe happy hour prices. When we said we were staying for dinner, we were eventually handed a... More

Enjoy spectacular harbor views, a menu full of fresh seafood and delicious dishes to tease the taste buds, and the On the Rocks Lounge at the Rocktide Inn & Restaurant. Situated on the water on the east side in beautiful downtown Boothbay Harbor, the Rocktide has been a landmark in the harbor since 1968. Enjoy hot popovers with every meal, and one of the finest selections of house wine and liquor to be found on the water. Enjoy good times and great food at the Rocktide Inn & Restaurant.
