We stumbled upon this place while navigating around Boothbay Harbor. Grilled hot dogs and buttered grilled rolls were excellent. I had a chili dog and the chili was delicious. Love this place and our chocolate lab did also.

Had I wanted a packaged hot dog I’d have gone to Hannafords and purchased some. Using TA reviews we stopped and it was a BIG disappointment. The dogs are soft and overly salty. The onions offered as a condiment were cut too big to stay...More

Chili dogs - yes! Crab roll- yes! Lobster roll - didn't love it. But the menu is quite extensive for a walk-up (or drive and walk across the street) restaurant with affable staff and plenty of outdoor seating.
