“My Favorite Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2008

We travelled the Maine coast for a 10 day trip before my husband , who was fortunate to go on a Maine Moose Hunt. My alltime favorite place was Boothbay Harbor and The Tugboat Inn. We stayed in the room on the corner closest to the water and it was the best. We had dinner several times at The Tugboat Restaurant and was very pleased each time. The setting is beautiful looking out on the water as the boats return and the food was by far some of the best of the trip and believe me we tried many many different places in 10 days. We will return again and stay in the same room. We fell in love with Boothbay Harbor.

“Favorite Waterfront Window on the busy side of BoothBay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2008

Delicious seafood, perfectly prepared, with a window seat overlooking the harbor at dusk. Just what a getaway weekend is all about. Perfection. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant, and we've been eating there for years. It's a favorite.

“Delicious Dinner With A Lovely View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2008

Quite a few restaurants were not yet open for the season, however, we found the Tugboat Inn Restaurant at the end of Commerce Street. I had an excellent casserole with meat from one whole lobster sauted in butter and sherry. My husband was very pleased with is choice of a scallop casserole. The dining room was attractive with linen tableclothes and napkins and we enjoyed the view of Boothbay Harbor. Service was good and the prices were fair. Pleasant experience.
