We recently had an excellent meal here. Warm and inviting decor. We had a view of the harbor at the end of day which was nice. Excellent service by a very attentive waitress. Only complaint was the table for four was too small, there were no larger tables available. The waitress said owner ordered too small tables. It was awkward... More

After literally wanting to get over to Archer's in Rockland for about 10 years, I finally did just that this past summer for the very first time. I had heard good things but was somewhat skeptical simply because often a beautiful view of a harbor in coastal Maine "does not a great restaurant make". Initially, the hostess seemed just a...

Went for dinner, shared a couple of dishes, and it was plenty of food. Very good and hot. The sauces were really good! Best cocktail sauce I have ever had. The waitress was very nice and engaging, w/ timely service. Very quaint place. Love the beach style pillows on the bench seat for your back. Nice touch.

Great views of Rockland Harbor and the bay. Food was typical seafood fare. Onion strings were undercooked and greasy but the haddock and fries were good. I may not be a beer aficionado but I know the difference between Sam lager and Octoberfest. I ordered Octoberfest but received lager. The waitress was unwilling to check with the bartender. That's the... More

We've gone to Archers for lunch and dinner on successive yearly trips. We went for dinner tonight and what previously was good food, food good enough to return, was great this time. I had the seafood enchiladas and the spicy newburg sauce was excellent. Since my enchiladas had several different kinds of seafood, scallops, crab, haddock and lobster I was... More

Four of us had a drink (wonderful martini) and excellent lunch. The food was exceptional, the service quick and courteous, the atmosphere relaxed and pleasing. I would highly recommend the place as well as the sister establishment, Brass Compass.

Had a wonderful time, the seafood casserole was excellent! A dining companion had the seafood tacos and raved how much fresh lobster was in there. It did look really good. Great place to visit. Well worth the money.

Had to have a great seafood meal before leaving Maine and this was just the place. Plan on spending a little more but well worth it. Great view too,
