Place was nice and clean. The staff was extremely attentive. The view was gorgeous My husband thoroughly enjoyed his scallop roll. I was a little disappointed in my hot lobster roll. The roll was soggy from too much melted butter.

We heard about this place cause they were on Throwdown with Bobby Flay for their crab cakes, which were excellent. You order at the counter, but unlike most similar places, servers bring the food to you when it's ready. It was very convenient for large...More

Good food on the water. We ate there twice in two days (a quick lunch and a dinner), both times the food and service were great. That said, we didn't get a bad seafood meal in Boothbay during our entire stay. I'd go again.

We have a lobster roll every trip. A lot of lobster piled in a tasty bun. Several beers and ales to choose from as well as soft drinks.

Ordered steamed lobster only as it was a bit pricey and the sides didn't seem worth it. Loved sitting outside overlooking the bay at a clean brightly painted red table. Women's bathroom had a serious odor problem. Staff didn't seem very attentive, a bit lackadaisical....More

Great food! Friendly service- they even brought out my friends pie with a sparkler for her birthday! Highly recommended by several friends who had been here before. Beautiful view of the harbor as well. Definitely a winner!

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.
