“Lobster Dock- always delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We visit Booth Bay Harbor ME late August every year- we just completed out 12th.The MUST STOP for us every night is Lobster Dock. We tried others in the early years- some as convenient, some less expensive, some more expensive, none measured up to Lobster Dock.
Sit on a deck overlooking the harbor, have an attentive, well trained, pleasant wait staff bring your food to the table. The shuckers deliver wonderful raw clams and oysters. Lobsters from the tank are delicious. The huge shrimp cocktail snaps.
Mitchell, the owner. is not only ever present but visits each table to be sure we're happy, takes time to chat with customers and adds a warm personal touch to wonderful food.

“Best warm lobster roll I ever had!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Food was great,mussels mariniere were like butter. We went there with a very loud) special needs child, and they were very understanding. The manager came over and reassured us . A nice touch.
Don't bother with the blueberry pie though, nothing special.

“Always a good lobster!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

You always get a good lobster at the Lobster Dock. They are always super fresh. You can eat outside and enjoy a view of the harbor. They employ students from places like Bulgaria who are working their way through school so leave them a nice tip.

“Best Lobster we had in Maine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

After sampling lobsters in York and Bluehill, and noting the many tourists in line, we weren't sure about this spot. But since it was right across from our B&B, it seemed worth a shot. We were greeted by the owner in line, found the "special" wine list with palatable choices (yes, we're wine snobs), and enjoyed the outdoor sunset view. Although we spent 30 minutes in line, our food, a double lobster dinner for me and a larger 1-3/4 special order for my husband, came quickly. Without a doubt, these were the freshest, most perfectly cooked lobsters we've ever eaten - and not just this year.
