We were happily surprised to be able to get a table quickly after ordering a cocktail at the bar. We tried three hot seafood tapas dishes and were delighted with all three. An Asian lobster/crabcake dish, maple/blueberry scallops and goat cheese stuffed prawns. All were great and service very good. A wonderful evening! Even a delightful conversation with adjoining couple at table next door. Reservations not accepted for 3rd floor balcony....

Super place to enjoy a special meal, Tried it twice at lunch and were very pleased both days. House soup and chowder of the day were outstanding!!! The roof top deck was worth the climb, great view and good service, perfect for a cold beverage!!

We have been summer people in Maine for nearly 30 years, but this was our first time in Boothbay Harbor, and this was the best meal we have ever had here in Maine (sorry Primo!) They have such unique versions of Maine seafood ~ the Thai "Maine" mussels were so delicious that we asked for bread to soak up the juice after the mussels were gone, lobster "creme brulee", and lobster and scallion triangles with scallions and cream cheese, mmmm! The landlubbers' tapas were just as good ~ we ordered the lollipop lambchops and the creamy wild mushroom ragout served over crispy polenta. Service was friendly, and everything was served at just the right time, impressive, considering how many dishes we ordered. We sat on the rooftop, with the wonderful harbor view. Because of Boathouse Bistro, we will now make Boothbay Harbor a regular stop every summer!

Food is good, view is better. It's always hopping on a hot summer night. I highly recommend for couples or friend groups. Not such a kid friendly environment.

We tried the hummus tapa, which was great. The onion tartlet which wasn't very good and wasn't sharing friendly. The Bruschetta, which was average, but only came with two tiny pieces of bread which we thought was weird. The lobster triangles were pretty good, and the chicken roll things were good. The menu was very large. Has a nice view from the third floor. Service was pretty quick considering how packed it was. It was nice to try, but not really a new favorite or anything.
