Description: Locally caught lobster is our specialty. Several hundred pounds are stored in our sea water tank. You may select your own from the tank and watch as they are prepared for cooking in our large outdoor pots. We have all sizes of the tasty shellfish, from one to four pounds. To those new to lobster, we will gladly assist on how to best eat them and explain the differences between hard and soft shell. The Outdoor Patio at The Lobster Dock The flavor of Maine is further captured in our other offerings. Stews and chowders are prepared daily from only the freshest ingredients. The shrimp and scallops we use are caught in the waters of the Boothbay Region. Clams are also supplied by local diggers most every day. Our mussels are grown on a salt water farm in Tenants Harbor. Fish caught in the North Atlantic are supplied to us from Boothbay Fish Dealers. We accept only the freshest available. It is not unusual for us to refuse deliveries that do not meet our quality standards.

View of the harbor is beautiful from the patio of the restaurant. Paid $15 for a lobster dinner and the food was great. Would return to again if I went back to Boothbay.

Probably the best lobster my wife and I have ever eaten. Better than many places far more fancy and expensive than this. Friendly service. Looking forward to our next visit next season.

Everytime we are in Boothbay, we have at least one dinner here. The menu has lots of choices and their warm lobster rolls are fastastic. We have seen some great sunsets from the deck.

Very casual dining but the best lobster and clam chowder we have ever tasted!
You order your meal through a hole in the wall, and its served on plastic trays so dont expect any fine dining but do expect the best lobster ever.
If you are not a lobster fan you must try the clam chowder instead. We had a small cup as a "starter" and almost changed our order to a large bowl - DELICIOUS!!!
If you are lucky and the weather is good, you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery too.
Loved it and would love to go back !

My hubby and I stopped there on our first night of our trip, we ordered at the little window and sat down to wait for our surf and turf dinner. We only waited a few minutes and received our dinners. We could not believe how great the lobster was as well as the steak. The view was beautiful with the sun setting on the bay. We treated ourselves to the blueberry pie with ice cream. We enjoyed it very much. The crust was flaky and the blue berries tasted fabulous. The next night we tried another restaurant and were terribly disappointed, so much so that we stopped back at the Lobster Dock and I had the Bobby Flay Throw down crab cakes, they lived up to the hype. We spoke to the owner, who was very personable, stopped by our table and although he was very busy, kept stopping by to chat. His staff was very customer friendly as well. We plan to make this restaurant a stop next year when we go back to Boothbay Harbor. It was excellent.
