“Beautiful view, Good food and Service!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Our second stop at the Nautilus on the way up the coast of Maine
Shared a lite supper on a Sunday evening with my husband.
Ordered the Caesar Salad, Steamers, and French Onion soup .
Enjoyed a nice glass of house wine while enjoying the Great view of the Harbor
Good food, good service and a great view. They have nice menu selections to choose from (this is NOT a chain). Very relaxing atmosphere. Beautiful view!
Great outside deck to eat or drink on a nice day!
Nice choice, right on Route 1, just after the bridge if your heading North!

“Good food, great view”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I stopped here because I'd noticed that there was usually a crowd in the parking lot. I was a little afraid of the prices, but found there were also many reasonably priced items. I tried the fried native clams which were in a delicious breading and very tasty. It came with some very tasty rolls, excellent coleslaw and some average, not so great french fries. Also had a Maine beer which was reasonably priced and also excellent. I enjoyed the view of the harbor and the server was very pleasant. If it had been a little warmer, I might have sat out on the deck

“Hugh prices, mediocre food”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is very nice to look at. The menu looks interesting. However, the food delivered is mediocre, at best. Macaroni and cheese with lobster. Was 95% macaroni and cheese with very little lobster.
Clams were poorly cleaned and rubbery. We wouldn't go back.

“A real find teen road and sea”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Driving south on Rt 1 from Bar Harbor we found Nautilus well rated on TripAdvisor so called ahead on a Monday nite to ensure they were open. Opon arrival on an evening too cool to sit out on the lovely waterside deck we got the4 next best seats, the inside table next to the window and closest to the water. We ordered house specialties - seafood pie and lobster mac and cheese. The servings were prompt, ample and delicious and the wait stff was suitably attentive and friendly. With so many road side and waterside restaurants providing indifferebt service and food, it was a real pleasure to find Nautilus. We will make a point of stopping again the next time we trabel Down East.

“Spring time delight”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

A fabulous non-chain restaurant, that overlooks the ocean and has a wonderful atmosphere. Food was delightful, and the staff helpful and well adaptive. Very crisp fish & homemade chips, and Jenny had a juicy ribeye. For an appitizer, lobster mac & cheese. Overall excellant...I just wish the locals would appreciate Belfast and help support this locations efforts.

Thanks for having dinner with us, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I also appreciate your support of our non chain status. It's people like you that make small businesses possible. All of us partners grew up here in Belfast and it has been an honor and also very exciting to create this restaurant in our hometown. Belfast is a great community and we feel the love every day. Thanks again for visiting and taking the time to write a review. We're looking forward to seeing you again! Jenifer
