“Good food, Awsome Loation!”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Lots of places to choose from in Boothbay to eat, Glad we picked Rocktide. Stayed next door and this made for an easy walk. Great job with decor on the many dining rooms. We sat outside to watch the sunset. Perfect Spot. Can't go wrong with lobster, or lobster cassarole.

“Favorite Place for Sunsets”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Stopped by here for drinks and sunset on our way back to our hotel. We went inside to the lounge first and sat there fro 10 minutes without anyone coming near our table. We moved outside to the very front deck and a waiter came right over. Took a while to get the drinks. Sunny spot, great for watching the activity on the harbor. Went back and again, took a while for a waiter. Order food during happy hour, $2.00 off a selection of apps and $2.00 off drinks. Sunsets are fabulous here. Big, big restaurant and lounge. Two decks for outdoor dining with entertainment. A young guy played the steel drums, really talented! Inside dining room is gorgeous. If you drive here, it's valet parking only.

“Amazing sunset”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Arrived just in time last Friday night for a spectacular sunset (see photo), staff was friendly & food was wonderful. The bartender was very knowledgeable & made some great recommendations! Rocktide is a must if you’re in the Boothbay region!

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Rocktide this summer. We stayed two nights in room 151, which had an amazing view of the harbor. It was a great room! We loved sitting out on the deck after we returned to our room after dinner. We had to change rooms for our third night because the room we were in was already booked for that night when I made the reservation. Our other room was nice, as well, but did not have the ocean view. It was considerably less expensive. We were not able to check into our new room until 3:00 PM, which I expected, but did put a slight wrinkle in our plans for the day. Guests can go to the breakfast buffet in the restaurant for free. The food was ok. They have hot food, like scrambled eggs, quiche, sausage and potatoes, which is nicer than your standard continental breakfast offered at some hotels. For a free breakfast it was pretty good, but I would have been pretty disappointed if I had paid for it. We went to the On the Rocks Lounge, but did not dine at the restaurant, other than the breakfast. The service at the lounge was pretty slow, which I noticed is typical of many place in Boothbay. But here it was especially slow. We only had drinks, but the food other people were eating looked pretty good. I would definitely recommend this Inn. I loved the location! It is on the quieter side of the harbor and connects to the bustling area with all of the shops and restaurants by a footbridge, so it is only a 5 minute walk to downtown. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. And all of the staff were very friendly! Especially the check in desk staff and the cleaning staff. I would love to stay here again next time I am in Boothbay.
