We were in Lubec for 5 Days and this was our favorite Dining Spot. ON the Narrows across from Campobello island. The menu had many things we were interested in but our first meal was of course Lobster Dinners. It had to be close to 2lbs and we had options as far as salad, fresh steamed garlic green beans or...

We stopper here one afternoon for a couple of drinks and appetizers. We had a scallop appetizer and a haddock appetizer. Both were excellent as was the service. Drinks were good too. Would come here again.

From the moment we checked in Jim & Judy (proprietors) were most gracious and helpful. We went down for dinner and my wife loves seafood and ordered the lobster plate however, being from Texas she had never had lobster and wasn't sure how to go about eating it. We explained our situation to Judy and she immediately took the plate... More

I stopped in here for my second night of dinner and even though it took a bit to get a drink and menu, I still very much enjoyed the atmosphere. They couldn't make me an Old Fashioned so I had a Bulliet on the rocks and joked with the bartender (one of the owners). I ordered fried green beans and... More

Four of us had lunch at the Water Street Tavern, and we were very well satisfied. They have a number of good microbrews on tap; you can certainly waste your entire day there if you have more than a couple... The food was really good -- I had an outstanding homemade soup for my appetizer, followed by a very good... More

After reading the reviews we decided to eat here on out second night in Lubec. I think the restaurant is overrated. The food was average at best. At least half of my scallops were very rubbery, my companion's haddock was over-cooked and dry. The prices were high for what we ate. However, the chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting was...

This was our third time visiting the inn and restaurant. We had stayed there once before and had eaten there twice. Based on our past experiences, we brought another couple with us for a two-night stay. We booked a two-bedroom suite and the first surprising thing was that the primary entrance was through one of the bedrooms. There was another... More

We visited Lubec from Acadia to see the most NE point in the US. Although Water Street was the only restaurant open, it was very enjoyable.

We spent almost a week at the Water Street Tavern & Inn in the Narrows Suite. The accommodation is RUSTIC, but we had absolutely everything we needed--lots of space, fully outfitted kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. The view of the narrows and the Mulholland lighthouse on Campobello Island just outside the window can't be beat. Friends who were staying elsewhere were captivated.... More
