Awesome view of the river and good food. The service isn't the best but it's not that bad. During the summer Friday nights they have live music so if you like that type of thing that's a good time to go however it becomes difficult to hear during this time so if you go with a family I'd say avoid that night.

My husband and I love to go to Schooner Landing here in Damariscotta, Maine. The restaurant sits next to a Marina overlooking the Damariscotta River. Boaters can dock their boats there and enjoy great cocktails and great seafood at Schooner Landing. We have seen Seals swimming by while we are eating our dinner. On Fridays they have entertainment outdoors and free Oyster Bar. Sunday Pier Parties. Happy Hour M-F 4 to 6. It is truly a magical experience at Schooner Landing. We love it!!

By no means is Schooner Landing a 5 star restaurant! It is however an easy meal kind of place with good fried seafood, wraps, burgers, and other menu items - definitively, not a dress-up place. However, it is on the water, they have outdoor seating, service is very good and prices are not bad. Live music - both outdoors and indoors - on the weekends. Cool bar staff - we love you Heidi! The only unfortunate thing is they're closed all winter. But, spring is in the air and the good beer and fried fresh Maine clams are and so are some of the worlds best fresh oysters (top 10 in the world - I believe Food & Wine Mag 2007, said so). And the very (now-a-days) unusual Chicken Cordon Bleu, but all so delicious!

In a busy tourist town where the dining competition is fierce, Schooner Landing has maintained a loyal following for years, helped by competent wait staff, fresh seafood, and a pleasant waterfront setting. Prices are reasonable, and on a breezy summer day the shady deck is the best place in town for lunch al fresco. Just once the house specialty potato salad I ordered contained crunchy, undercooked potatoes. A word to the waiter brought apologies and a fresh batch of salad delivered to me by the owner. This kind of service, coupled with delicious locally raised oysters, brings customers back time after time. Summer has officially begun when the Landing opens for the season.
