“Very Tasty, No Crowds”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We walked another quarter mile past the long waiting line at the Lobster Dock, which may well be delicious. But for a touch more effort, we were rewarded with big fresh lobster rolls, sweet plentiful steamers, and cold draft beer at the Boothbay Lobster Wharf. Lunch could not have been more pleasant or delicious.

“Beautiful setting, delicious lobster”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

We dine at the Boothbay Lobster Wharf several times when we are in Boothbay Harbor. Lobster does not get any fresher that this. Sitting on the deck right on the harbor is great.

The view is so beautiful. The only warning is about seagulls. Don't leave the table if you have not finished your lobster. There are seagulls standing on the roof just waiting. On a previous visit we watched a sea gull swoop down and grab a lobster. They obviously know a good thing.

“The best lobster with the best view.”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

On the harbor, picnic tables, pitcher of maine beer - perfect setting for the best steamers and lobster anywhere. Choose your lobster from the tank - it was just taken from the Bay a couple of hours ago. You might get fancier, but you will NOT get better.

“Delicious seafood and yummy homemade wild blueberry pie!”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

Very delicious seafood. My husband and I had a haddock sandwich with homemade cole slaw. We also shared a piece of wild blueberry homemade pie by "Aunt Rayetta" (I think that was her name). This is a clean restaurant as well both inside seating and outside. In a busy place like Boothbay Harbor that is hard to do but they have succeeded in providing delicious food in a very nice atmosphere on a wharf. My husband and I would definitely go back there when in Boothbay Harbor again.

“An absolute MUST do while in Boothbay!”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Wonderful views. Polite wait staff (mostly college kids earning summer bucks) Huge lobster rolls, cooked to order seafood. Good local beer selection. Watch for seagulls, they will STEAL your food.
