“Surprised”
Reviewed October 9, 2009

We did not know what to expect but wanted something else besides cracking lobsters and got a nice surprise. Very nice interior but for some reason an electric train runs overhead throughout the meal. Tour buses take their passengers here and the average age of the patrons in +70. The food was delicious and the service was good. A coat is required to sit at the tables with a white tablecloth that are by the windows looking over the harbor.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed August 14, 2009

We have eaten at the Rocktide many times and this time was just as excellent as any other. The Champagne Lobster they serve is simply the best lobster dish I have eaten and I order it whenever we go. My husband usually orders the duck which is prepared to perfection. Our two dinner companions enjoyed their meal as well. The service was outstanding and the view .... spectacular. It's not the least expensive restaurant in town, but well worth it.

“Best food in Boothbay Harbor”
Reviewed July 21, 2009

We have been going to Boothbay Harbor for years and the highlight of each trip is the Rocktide Inn restaurant. Excellent food at reasonable prices with a great staff to serve you while you sit and admire the view. If you stay at the inn you also get a great breakfast each morning with a complimentary newspaper. I highly recommend the Rocktide Inn for great food and a magnificent view!
