Good fish sandwich. We sat outside overlooking the harbor. The service was great. We probably stayed too long but we didn't feel rushed to leave. My husband raved about his cod cakes. We came here after a harbor tour. Wonderful day!

When coming to the Boothbay Harbor check out Brown Brothers for accomadations, whether by land or water. Ample dock space for larger boats and plenty of parking. The restaurant is charming and serves delicious meals. A beautiful view of Boothbay Harbor awaits!

A very warm and inviting place to have a meal. Staff were so friendly and their knowledge and advice was wonderful. Had fantastic lobster meals on the both nights we attended. Prices were very reasonable and all dishes and wines were moderately priced.
