Stopped for dinner, but was way too noisy. Tried outside seating on a chilly night, but opted for soup and left. Wouldn't go back. They do have a good view of the waterfront

We are locals and love Archer's. The food is always great and they have a wide selection of craft beers. The menu is naturally heavily leaning toward seafood, but the offer other choices too.

Two of us ordered baked stuffed haddock - both meals were delivered to the table under cooked. Definitely suggest skipping the french fries. Mashed potatoes were ok. Waitress was accommodating but management only offered 20% off. Not a place we would return.

Very nice setting, great service and food is to die for. I'm sure I'll never have another scallop cooked any better than here.

Archer’s on the Pier is located directly on Rockland’s pristine waterfront. Come enjoy an innovative and tasty menu for lunch and dinner created with the best sustainable seafood and local produce. If you stop in on Sunday, we offer a light fare for brunch while you enjoy Jazz playing softly in the background. Sit out on our large deck and watch the windjammers drift by as you relish the fresh sea air. You will also notice the ferry that transports locals and visitors to and from Vinalhaven and North Haven from Rockland’s port.
