“The BEST...lobster and a wonderful boat tour on the way to the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Cabbage Island is a great way to experience Maine. Lobster, steamers, chowder, blueberry dessert cake, PLUS a great boat trip that highlights light houses along the route. You simply need to experience this to really get the feel of Maine! Wonderful family owned business. Make you feel special.

“Relaxing Afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

The #1 attraction rating of the Cabbage Island Clambake lived up to its reputation. The informative boat ride provided tidbits about the Boothbay harbor area. Upon docking, the smells and sight of food being steamed nearby made us anxious for our meal. What a delicious treat it was! No one should have gone away hungry. Picnic tables dotted the area - pick out one overlooking the water. The Moore family members made it a point to come around and greet people during the relaxing afternoon. If one has time after eating the big meal, there are several activites available as well as easy walks around the island. (We saw an osprey nest.) If there is one negative, it's that we could have used a little more time on Cabbage Island to explore.

“Clambake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is a family run business whose hospitality and hearty meals keep us returning yearly. Go with an empty stomach because the food is plentiful if you choose the lobsters, chicken or hot dog meals. Chowder starts the meal and an enormous serving of blueberry cake ends it. In between there is corn, baked potato, hard boiled egg and steamers. It is a delicious meal and the boat ride to the island is included. it is definitely worth the money.

“Can't Miss this!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is an absolute GOTTA DO when in Boothbay Harbor. You cannot beat the price and the food is to die for. The family that owns the island is very accomodating and couldn't be nicer and more welcoming. Gotta see Mumma Alice and buy a shirt from her!!!

“Unbelievable, best choice on trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Great time going out and hanging on island. Food was fantastic-fish chowder, 2 lobsters, baked clams, corn on the cob, onion, boiled egg, blueberry cake. Sons and matriarch of the Moore family were there to welcome and stay on top of things. Mrs. Moore came around on her walker to greet and welcome us-what a great lady! The treatment of guests and food couldn't have been better. Organization and serving efficiency was unbelievable. Best choice of things to do on week long trip up and down Maine's coast.
