Description: Archer’s on the Pier is located directly on Rockland’s pristine waterfront. Come enjoy an innovative and tasty menu for lunch and dinner created with the best sustainable seafood and local produce. If you stop in on Sunday, we offer a light fare for brunch while you enjoy Jazz playing softly in the background. Sit out on our large deck and watch the windjammers drift by as you relish the fresh sea air. You will also notice the ferry that transports locals and visitors to and from Vinalhaven and North Haven from Rockland’s port.

we had a late lunch at archers today, view from the outdoor deck was worth the visit, service was excellent, lobster blt club was as good as advertised and the portion size more than ample, sides of potato salad and cole slaw were fresh and tasty

Great views of the water and the boats. The food was excellent. Raw bar and a wood burning oven to roast and smoke the local oysters!! Beer and drink prices ok. Great Bloody Mary's if you like them spicy!

We had dinner twice at Archers during a recent visit to Rockland. Both times we made last minute reservations and we were able to secure a table for a late dinner. We were seated in a timely manner and all staff were really friendly and attentive. The fish was delicious and fresh and prepared in a pleasingly uncomplicated manner. I noticed some less favorable reviews on tripadvisor but our experience was very good. Seating outside can be cool but we dressed more appropriately the second night and we were fine. Definitely recommend.a visit.

Have been here multiple times for lunch and dinner. The outside seating is superb, the restaurant has received great publicity and is very lively. I was there this past week and have to say the food fell short of my expectations and those of my friends. The seasoning in their salad dressings were disappointing, the mussels tiny and only about 50% had a mussel in the shell. Service was not up to the standards of past visits. One friend had a very disappointing meal which was deducted from the bill which was appreciated but there was not time left to reorder. Still, the outside seating is great, cozy and appealing and the cold libations on a hot day a perfect experience.

We have had lunch and dinner at Archers. During busy summer months, especially weekends, expect to wait for a table, often even with reservations. The food is great! Cioppino excellent, as is Sole Florentine. The staple fried Haddock is light and not overcooked. Bar staff is friendly, and waiting for a table at either inside or outside bar leads to conversations with other restaurant guests...always some interesting folks here!
