We had great local beer (try the allagash) and I had sliders. Husband had goat cheese prawns and maple scallops. All were amazing. 2 tapas for him and 3 sliders for me made plenty for dinner. We sat on the 3rd floor roof and watched boats sail into the harbor. Perfect evening.

Our biggest problem at this restaurant was deciding on only one meal! The menu choices were so good that we wanted to try it all. We ended up getting the paella and the seafood risotto. Both were outstanding! The decor is laid back and the service was good. It was too cold at night to sit outside, but the deck seemed like it would have a nice view in the summer.

We have been coming to Boothbay harbor annually for five years and decided that we wanted to try a different restaurant. We studied Trip Advisor and decided on the Boathouse Bistro. Once we had dinner there, we went back the next, and last night, we were in town. Above all the other excellent dishes, I have to say that the risotto is to die for, whether you get it alone or in combination with other items. Mussels, chowder, veggie dishes, beer choices, wait staff, all outstanding. The prices are reasonable.We had two very enjoyable and atmospheric evenings on the third floor deck, watching the tide, boats, and sunset. Perfect! We'll definitely be back next year.

This was our second time visiting the Boathouse and once again we had an outstanding meal. The bar service was pretty slow, but they were packed to the brim up on the top deck where we were waiting for a table, so it was understandable. Our waiter was very pleasant and the food came out quite quick. The view from the top is stunning and I would highly recommend waiting for a table as long as the weather is nice. We choose several tapas to share between the two of us once we were seated. The prawn shrimp and cheese grits were simply fantastic as well as the artisanal sausage sampler and the Maine maple scallops. We also had the lobster and scallion triangles, steak Madagascar and baked brie. They were all good, but I would probably not try the last three again if we returned. There are so many delicious things to choose from though! Everything tasted very fresh and was piping hot. We left stuffed and content.
