Mediocre meal. Standard fried fish and associated items. Clams shrimp and scallops were a bit week done. Onion rings were not rings, but rather strings. Very thin and not my prefered variation. Steamed clams were way underdone. More than half not even opened. Perhaps the biggest dissapointment was the mens room. Not entirely clean with the waste basket over filled... More

Nice restaurant right on the harbor. Be sure to make reservations early if you want outside seating. We both had the senior fried haddock dinner. Best haddock we've ever had and a large portion besides.Cole slaw and fries were very good as well. Definitely a place to go if you are in Rockland or nearby.

The restaurant was very nice. the tables are a bit crowded in the main dining room. We sat on the deck and the service seemed to forget us. We only seemed to get service if the server was coming our way with an order or after bussing a table. I waited for a refill on my drink and after waiting... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner outside on the patio while vacationing in Maine. Our Hotel recommended Archers and we are so glad they did. The food delish and the service was great. Our waitress was friendly and the views were beautiful! Hope to visit again soon.

Was in town for a business meeting and afterward wanted to sit outside, enjoy the beautiful sunny day and have a quick lunch. The views of the comings and goings in Rockland Harbor are outstanding. The service from both the hostess and my waitress (Chelsea) were excellent. The food, however, leaves something to be desired. My mussels were just okay,... More

My family of 4 adults arrived on a rainy afternoon in search of seafood. We were not disappointed. We had the mussel special, lobster stew, fresh salmon, haddock bites, crab cakes, and fried scallops. The crab cakes were okay but the rest of the food was fantastic. The scallops had a light dusting of flour and the fried haddock also... More

When visiting Rockland do stop by Archer's for a seafood dinner. There is dinning inside or outside overlooking Rockland Harbor. Local bears on tap as well as full bar.

Husband ordered cioppino supposedly in a marinara sauce served over linguini. The mussels were bad, one was not even opened, the other shellfish were cold. The marinara sauce appeared to have cream in it but it was watery. My lobster was very fresh and tasty. The sides were not exceptional. Maybe there were other dishes that were good. But we... More
