Steamed lobster floating in butter was good and sweet. Clam chowder was one of the best I've had. Husband's salad was fresh and crisp. Our table had a great water-front view.

Had two supper meals in this restaurant and shared part of my sister's which means I got to try additional samplings. The seafood pie was excellent. Nice flaky crust full of seafood. The fried seafood was excellent as well. Not overdone, soggy or too greasy. Excellent service and the ambiance was unique.

Although we've lived in Maine for many years, we had never ventured to Boothbay, a mere hour away from our home. The area is beautiful and peppered with interesting shops, although it was too early for most to be open. Our Easter dinner at Tugboat was really quite good - as was the service. I had the prime rib, cooked to order. Perhaps not quite as lean a cut as I would have liked, but very tasty and a huge serving! My wife had the broiled haddock and although the portion was just a tad on the smaller size for the price, she found it to be delicious! Our son had the Angus burger and fries - both again quite good and cooked per request (perfectly). Our waitress was friendly, accommodating, and efficient. Views by our window-side table were beautiful. We would definitely return.

The food is very good. Waitstaff is friendly and helpful. The scenery is terrific (harbor and boats).

Lunch time is best value for your money.
