“Great Family Reunion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

The boat ride is a great ride over. Love that you can sit anyware, they have lots of tables outside and inside. We took a nice walk around the Island after our hug meal. The food is amazing, the best way to eat lobster. 2 of them, clams, corn, the works. See their web site for more info. It is a must do trip if your in the area, you will not be sorry. We have been twice in the last 2 years.

“Worth the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

No, the Cabbage Island experience isn't cheap. But it's the only show in town that combines a well-narrated harbour tour with an extremely well done traditional Maine clam and lobster bake. The youthful staff on the island are all polite and enthusiastic and seem to take great pride in what they are doing.

If I had one minor complaint it would be that the PA system on the aging tour boat left a lot to be desired, at least on the lower level where we were seated. We had to struggle to understand what was being said and no, it wasn't the Maine accent!

Suffice it to say with the size of the "luncheon" meal (actually served closer to 2 pm), our dinner was a light salad.

Would we do it again? Probably not, but that doesn't mean we didn't thoroughly enjoy the experience.

“NEVER A DISAPPOINTMENT!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is a MUST DO every year!! The first time there was on a summer event with work. Ever since we've gone back on our own because it is SOOOO worth it. The owners are the nicest and it's always a wonderful day!!!
