There weren't many places to chose from and we were staying at the Inn. We had dined here over 30 years ago on our first trip together downeast. The food was very good. The prices were high but that is to be expected when dining right on the water. Hopefully we can get back before another 30 years go by.

While spending several weeks in Boothbay Harbor, we generally opt for al fresco casual dining outside, but when we want to "clean up" and spend a special evening, we always go to the Tugboat Inn. The food and service is excellent and...get this...real table linens, a china plate and real silverware and glassware. Drinks were generous and well-made. View is lovely. Highly recommend.

The view of the harbor was great, the food was excellent, and the service also great. It's not the fanciest restaurant, but a darn good one. We ate there the first of our four nights and decided to just repeat.

We ate there 2 evenings. Both of us had the sauteed lobster the first evening. It was delicious.
The second evening my husband had chowder (he said the best he had ever eaten) and scallops and I had a local grilled fish. Very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The view of the bay was beautiful.
