Description: Come and visit us at King Eider's Pub in the heart of the coastal village of Damariscotta Maine. Our historic building has been home to many interesting businesses over its 100+ years. Today, its warmth draws the visitor into the first floor pub with its brick walls, handsome cherry floors and low beams hung with old iron hooks holding handmade mugs. Step upstairs to our warm and very comfortable dining room and peruse a “wine lovers” wine list. Our oyster bar is aptly named for the local Damariscotta River oysters that are served here in the intimate little bar and those oysters will quite literally spoil you for any other – anywhere! Our extensive menu and daily offerings of native seafood, steaks, cuts from our butcher and fresh produce will provide you with just the right pairing.

King Eider's Pub was the perfect place to begin our week long adventure in mid-coast Maine. The Lobster and Damariscotta Oysters are world class here. Great local craft brews in a cozy and warm pub setting. Make sure that you are seated at one of Easter's tables and bask in her hospitality and knowledgeable suggestions for making the most of your time in Damariscotta-Newcastle. We wish King Eider's Pub much continued success and we look forward to our next opportunity to visit.

Every time we go to King Eiders one can sense that the management and staff are hands on for great service. This time we only had crab cakes and the Bloody Mary "Mary and the Boys" feature with three oysters- and all was delish. Maybe the Bloody was too salty, but all in all great place.

Excellent food - best crab cakes I've had in a while. Great beer selection on draught, and a funky fun atmosphere that mixes quaint New England charm with English pub. We will be returning.

This is a family friendly slightly out of the way pub with a great atmosphere. The whiskey selection is second to none and the staff is pretty darn good. The food is the star though. The specials board reads more like fine dining than a pub. Great fish dishes and oysters fresh from the river. Doesn't get any better.
