Well, we TRIED to eat at the Tugboat on our most recent trip to Boothbay. After being seated in the half empty dining room, we were given menus and water and left to wait for a waitress...that never came. Waited for 30 minutes for someone to come over to us. After 30 minutes we walked. I am confident that staff members knew that we had been ignored by the way they avoided eye contact as we walked out. Another table near us was looking like they were going to walk too...didn't see a shortage of staff, just a shortage of service.

The hotel is nice, have stayed there many times. JUST SKIP THE RESTAURANT. Lots of places with better service and the same menu in town!

We came to the Tugboat Inn via a package deal from AAA. Not only is the package a really great deal for the money but the Tugboat Inn is a great deal in every way. The room was clean and updated with flat screen TV and WiFi. The office staff and the maid service, all very friendly and accommodating during our stay. The restaurant wait staff was terrific and the food was great as well. We had a very nice time!

First we ask for a window seat, we got it, then we placed our order and then the food started to come. Great bread, very good salad , the main course (Lobster) was excellent, the service fantastic and the prices not out of line
