“Lobster Pot Pie!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This was a great stop on our tour of Boothbay and surrounding areas. Low-key and causal for a great night with the kids. They have an extensive kids menu, which pleased the little ones. We split the lobster pie and two steamed lobsters and both dishes were fantastic. The pot pie was creamy, but did not overwhelm the delicate lobster. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. This is a great stop especially if you have kids!

“A Maine Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were sent here by some of the staff at our hotel. The place is authentic Maine with lobsters on the dock in the rear. The food was very good and quickly served. The chowder is thick and full of clams and was what I needed after a cold August sunset sail! Both the lobster and the clams were well prepared.

Best tip--have a "Dan's Dark and Stormy" an excellent drink

“Casual and reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Nice selection of lunch and dinner options- especially if you want fried foods or sandwiches. Be sure to try the desserts- lots of selections and very cheap compared to other places. The earlier the better- it can get loud and crowded later on.

“Kaler's - a pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

I was skeptical at first but Kaler's is good at frying seafood without overcooking it like 90% do. It's the first seafood restaurant I've experienced where the clam strips were not just edible but pleasing. Not everything on the fried platter was exceptional but overall it was a pleasant surprise, and I am hard to please.
