Spending time in Boothbay Harbor is always a treat for us in the summer when we take our kayaks to enjoy paddling the coast. This is a first time visit to this restaurant with friends. We were seated outside as requested and the service was friendly and efficient. Drinks were great as we perused the menu. Appetizers that we shared... More

We usually go to Robinson's Wharf in Southport to eat lobster but this trip we decided to give this place a try. Oh my gosh - their lobster is excellent! Boiled in sea water, has the right amount of salt and very tender. Great views on the deck. We think we have found our "new" go to place for lobster!!... More

The fried haddock sandwich was great. My husband had the broiled haddock sandwich and enjoyed it. We had not been in here for 20 years because the food and the place were not good at that time. So glad we decided to try it again. The new owners have cleaned up the place, the staff is very friendly, and the... More

Lobsterman"s Wharf is a gem in the Boothbay region. It is the epitome of what Boothbay is all about. The look, the feel, the food, it doesn't get any better. The new owners who have owned the marina next door for years have brought this treasure back to what I remember it to be. Have the Seafood Nage. It doesn't... More

We stopped in for dinner, based on an eight year old recollection of good food and reasonable prices. The memory was correct. From the Lobstermen's dinner to the Lazy Lobster and house salad, the meals were all very good. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, answering all questions with a smile.

This family owned restaurant is located in a delightful setting in East Boothbay overlooking a working marina. The outside porch is a most pleasant setting and the food has always been excellent (especially the lobster stew). The wait staff are very pleasant and accommodating. The menu under new ownership (same owners as the adjacent marina) has been significantly improved. The... More

Had a recent meal of lazy lobster and prime rib. The waiter assured us that the lazy lobster was gluten free, but my husband who has celiac disease got sick almost immediately on arriving home. The prime rib was so huge that we brought more than half home, but after chilling it overnight, it smelled so off that we threw... More

We all experience good food here with no problems. Even the martini had some extra in a little carafe ready to go. Good White Russian. Good baked stuffed lobster on two different evenings. This is the only place we've found so far with a good baked stuffed lobster. Can't think of anything that was a problem except the first night... More

Having stopped by several times over the past 10 years, the service and food varies from visit to visit. We have had very competent service staff and good food, and at times, like the most recent lunch, neither. I don't know if the waitstaff was just tired of the season or never did care, but they were indifferent. Also did... More

While taking a leisurely drive through Maine's coastal areas we stopped for lunch at Lobsterman's Wharf. Two of our party ordered twin lobsters that they said were some of the best they have had in a long time. The stuffed shrimp were good also and the haddock basket was huge. We sat outside on the deck on the water and... More
