We would go back for the fried clams and scallops, but the shrimp were small and bready and the fish were ends and somewhat dry.

The food was good, about what one would expect from a fried seafood place. Portions were fine, but overpriced! Either put more on or bring the price down! Our small family of 4 (two kids 4 and 2) was $50+ ...It wasn't THAT good!

We have stayed in the Boothbay area the last two years and found this place in 2011.

Although the prices are about the same as you would pay for at a restaurant with a view, the food is is very good.

The haddock chowder is the best we had in Maine - and we had haddock chowder at every restaurant that offered it. It is full of chuncks of haddock, not shredded.

The haddock dinner only had 4 small haddock with alot of french fries. However when we ordered the comb dinner, haddock, shrimp, scallops, and clams, it was loaded and very good.

We would return for the haddock chowder but would probably not order anything else due to the price.

I had dinner here last night. You order at the counter and they call your number. Service was very fast, friendly, and the food was piping hot. I had the fried shrimp basket. The shrimp were fresh and delicious. The fries were good as was the biscuit. The serving was large and the price was reasonable for the quality and amount of food. This is some of the best fried seafood to be eaten. If you don't want fried food they have an amazing lobster stew. The place is very clean and they do a big takeout business.

This was recommended to me by someone who lives about 30 miles away. I went out of my way to visit here for dinner a few days ago. I asked the young girl at the counter what was really good this week, hoping that something was exceptional recently. Everything is good she said. When asked about whether anyone has been raving about something, same reply, Everything is good.
The food was fine; not exceptional, not bad in any way either.

One thing that I found was disappointing, is that I had a Basket and the baskets are not exceptionally large to begin with. They serve their meals with a roll. Instead of the roll being placed on ones tray or on top of the basket, I found the roll on the bottom of the basket with the ordered food served on top. It initially looked like a decent amount of food, but the roll took up about 40% of the basket. With the price of seafood, one would think that the roll wouldn't make up a large portion of the basket/meal, but maybe it is like all other products now out there - keep the same price and just make the quantity smaller, like we all see in coffee, snacks, detergent, and everything else out there. (Heck, even vitamins are that way, one huge bottle stuffed with cotton and the pills make up about 1/4 of the bottle, meaning that the space/cotton is 75% of the container)
