Nice place to have a drink and look at the view, especially in nice weather. Service is fine, but the food is only average. Also a bit pricey.

We stumbled on this place recently while exploring the Pemaquid Peninsula on a recent foggy and rainy day. It was a weeknight just after Labor Day when a couple of our preferred destinations were closed. The Slipway is rustically charming, and the food was fresh...More

when the tide is in, this is the place to sit, eat and relax with friends. There's a great bar setup at the end of the dock, the lobster rolls are quite full of meat, and the fries taste very good.

Quiet and out of the way. Webcams upon this gem by chance. Worth the go. Super fresh lobsters cooked to perfection. Local clams, steamers, oysters and muscles sealed the deal. Great eats and the views at sunset were truly amazing.
