We had a pound and a quarter lobster. Great prices. Fun to watch them cook the lobsters outside. Lots of outdoor seating and plenty inside too. Great view.

Nice little spot. Don't expect the best price around, just the best food. Well worth a couple bucks more, and still very reasonable. Good service, great view!

My clam-loving friend said this place has the best steamers in town. The crabcakes are very good, the haddock is the freshest ever and if you like a good prime rib, come on Friday or Saturday.

Good fried artichokes, stuffed shrimp, wine. Found a larger picnic table down near the water for five of us. Had to wait about 20 minutes in line to order but it gave us time to talk. Good food. Will go again.

The food was ok - nothing as good as some of the reviews stated. But what ruined it for us was the terrible attitude of the young kid who took our order. We will not go back

We had dinner here twice and enjoyed both meals. It was a good escape from the more crowded and touristy village. The lobster was terrific and the kids enjoyed watching their dinner being cooked. We also noticed that there seemed to be more locals dining...More

Fabulous lobster roll here as you would expect from a place called the Lobster Dock. Large seafood menu with outdoor tables to enjoy the beautiful view. Wine and beer available.

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.
