It is great to have another high-end dining option in Boothbay Harbor, and this place dovetails nicely with Ports of Italy and Spruce Point. The atmosphere is mellow enough that you won't feel sorely out of place in a t-shirt, if you are coming in...More

My husband and I visited this wonderful place by the harbor and not only enjoyed the food but also the view. We sat by the window and we're able to see the harbor and all the people who walked up and down the foot bridge...More

A bit pricey for what we got. Our lunch came to $90.00 and that is before the tip. Food was good but a little too much to pay.

Very pleasant restaurant without that dingy tavern feel. Food was excellent! Wow is more like it. Fabulous tastes and textures. We both had seafood (scallops and halibut) done to perfection.

Just stopped in for a quick lunch. The place has been newly renovated within the last year or so and it looked great. The bartender was very nice. The food was good and there is a great view of the harbor.

I've been here 3 times for lunch/brunch (once last year and twice this year). The food is consistently very good and fresh and the staff provide great service. Second floor, enclosed deck (open during good weather) is wonderful for watching life on the harbor.

We came for lunch and we're given a table right by the window facing the harbor and the footbridge. My husband had the clam chowder, which was creamy and delicious. He had the grilled portobello sandwich which was scrumptious with the carrot and parsnip fries,...More

Enjoyed perfectly cooked Lamb Chops, a rice ball stuffed with lobster was just ok and not a lot to eat. Service was very friendly and attentive. A bit pricy. Missing some popular cocktails considering location and time of year. Staff was friendly. Might return for...More
