“Lovely”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Arrived in Boothbay this evening hungry and found this place. The special was pot roast and it was delicious. The meat melted nicely at the touch, the gravy was very tasty, carrots were lovely with rosemary, garlic mashed potatoes were yummy and the butternut squash finished it off. Had a really nice blueberry bread pudding which was not full of sugar like other desserts we've had recently. Best meal we've had since arriving last week. May even go back tomorrow it was that good! Sloane was a good waitress too, never had to wait for top ups!

“excellent experience”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Four of us stopped for lunch while visiting Boothbay Harbor and loved Andrew's Harbor Side. The service was great but not over baring. The view was great over looking the end of the Harbor.
Sandwiches were good size. Not a bad word to say about our experience.

“great service.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I reviewed Andrews before about how great the chicken pot pie is. This year my sister her husband and her daughter in law joined my husband and I in Boothbay harbor Maine. we had gone to Andrews because my sister wanted to try the pot pie, well we went lunch time and the pot pie was not on the lunch menu so my sister asked about it and our waiter who was just great, went and asked the cook if it was possible to get it and he went out of his way to make them for us.my sister wanted to thank him for the extra effort so our waiter brought the cook back to our table and he sat down and talked to us. good food and great people. a must try

“Not our favorite lunch”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We stopped in to Andrews for lunch when we arrived in Boothbay. We ordered two of the lunch specials (steak and cheese quesadilla, bbq beef sandwich). The quesadilla was a decent size portion and came with guacamole and salsa, but it didn't have much flavor. The steak was a little fatty. The bbq sandwich was ok, but was very saucy and didn't need the cheese on the roll. I think we might do better with seafood or even breakfast here, but lunch was disappointing.

“Cinnamon Buns!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

They have the best cinnamon buns! I look forward to be annual Andrew's cinnamon bun all year. It is worth the indulgence. We enjoy this place for breakfast, and you can't beat their omelets or pancakes either. Just a forewarning the pancakes are huge! This year was especially nice because our waitress was great! We never waited for a coffee refill once. For those looking for a view, Harborside has a pretty decent one!
