5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The food was really flavorful and the bartender was really helpful. The views from the roof are spectacular of the entire harbor

“A Relaxing and Delicious Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

A well liked restaurant in the middle of Boothbay shopping area. The third floor has rooftop dinning which allows one to easily overlook the beauty of the harbor. The food is delicious and reasonably priced in comparison to the rest of the market pricing for that area. A large variety of cuisine from seafood to steak. The salads are very delicious and worth checking out. The service is polite and the selections varied. A good dining experience that would draw me back if given the chance. You can't go wrong with this choice!

“Peach sangria to celebrate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We ordered too much and ate it all anyway. Not sure I'd do the deep fried avocado on the salad again but the empanadas were good although the dough could have been a bit thinner. The tiramisu was not my favorite as it was mostly whipped cream.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Sat on the top floor outside, looking out to the bay. Had many beers and some great food. Chef knows what she is doing. Spanish inspired orzo dish was wonderful. Charcuterie plate was good.

“Best view and helpful chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed in Boothbay three days and ate here for a lunch, a dinner, and an afternoon cocktail. We just loved the view and the casual 3rd floor feel. The owner/bartender makes a great Bloody Mary, especially welcome after a whale watch with 5' swells. The chef was willing to amend their roasted beet salad to add a grilled portabello for these vegan travelers. Topped with a grapefruit dressing that was clean and flavorful, it was a beautiful thing! The hummus plate was also vegan-friendly.
