Having read all the reviews this was a meal we were looking forward to having. Perhaps the fact it was raining hard didn't help - everyone was soggy! Nice menu, queued at the window and order food and drinks - the food brought to you....More

My wife and I had dinner one evening at the Lobster Dock and I must say I was underwhelmed. For an area so rich in great seafood, I was very disappointed. We each got a 1-1/2 pound lobster and steamers. There was very little food...More

My car club went there as a group, and Mitch, the owner, and his staff made it a most enjoyable dinner. Mitch was flexible enough to accommodate some unanticipated changes in our group menu, and we all had a great time. Good service, great food...More

Great vibes here. The crab rolls were the best I had this trip. My husband had the lobster roll. Nice family run business. Excellent views of the bay.

We visit here every year and always enjoy the view and the food. Staff is friendly. This is a lobster/crab shack so nothing is fancy. We enjoy the crab cakes and the lobster rolls as well as the onion rings. Always good and consistent year...More

Seeking a lunch location, had our Westie with us, wanted an outside location. Had a lobster roll and lobster stew. The lobster roll was OK, the lobster stew was excellent! The surroundings were minimal, food was good, staff were curt.

Low key paper plates with picnic tables, but the food is fantastic. The views of the bay were killer... service was simple and to the point.

When you go to a restaurant in a seaside setting on the Maine Coast, you do so with certain expectations. Well, check off all of them st this unassuming gem right on the water. I thoroughly enjoyed the 1 1/4 pound lobster and my guest...More

Locally caught lobster is our specialty. Several hundred pounds are stored in our sea water tank. You may select your own from the tank and watch as they are prepared for cooking in our large outdoor pots. We have all sizes of the tasty shellfish, from one to four pounds. To those new to lobster, we will gladly assist on how to best eat them and explain the differences between hard and soft shell. The Outdoor Patio at The Lobster Dock The flavor of Maine is further captured in our other offerings. Stews and chowders are prepared daily from only the freshest ingredients. The shrimp and scallops we use are caught in the waters of the Boothbay Region. Clams are also supplied by local diggers most every day. Our mussels are grown on a salt water farm in Tenants Harbor. Fish caught in the North Atlantic are supplied to us from Boothbay Fish Dealers. We accept only the freshest available. It is not unusual for us to refuse deliveries that do not meet our quality standards.
