Excellent lobster and fresh corn! Cooked to perfection. Perfect night to eat outside. Our third visit in as many years and look forward to return!

We visited in September and the food was very good. A little expensive. We enjoyed sitting on the harbor front dock while eating lobster. There is also a bar next door to get a cocktail.

Don’t miss this when you are in Booth Bay. You select your live lobster. It comes with a variety of side choices. The tables are outside and the view of the harbor is picturesque. I ate there at sunset and took at least 50 photos...More

Ate here twice as the ambience was fun no frills and delicious. Enjoyed a large lobster roll while watching in stunned amazement as a gentleman in a nearby table devoured a 4 pound fresh lobster.

The Boothbay Lobster Wharf has plenty of indoor or outdoor seating overlooking the harbor. You order at the counter and when they call your number you pick up your food. The menu is extensive...lobster, lobster rolls, shrimp, scallops, clams, etc. The food is cooked perfectly!

Stopped in for lunch to find a limited and pricey menu. The service was OK but this experience was nothing special.

I miss the ad from the old owner, a real Mainer. Although I know nothing about the present one. Seems there have been some menu changes but it still has good food, cold beer and a beautiful location on the water.

This was a great place for fresh seafood. The owners and their children were wonderful. Not fancy at all... Counter service and they call your number. Everything was delicious.

In my opinion, the best lobster rolls in the world are here! WOW! The lobster rolls are loaded with a huge amount of delicious, sweet, tender, lightly-dressed lobster on toasted, buttered buns that were both slightly crunchy and soft. The service was friendly, but even...More

Management changed two years ago and we've eaten their both years. Lobster doesn't change because management does. The food is just as good as before.

They should be open by then. Boothbay Harbor is a great place for seafood restaurants. You don't need to go fancy. We'll be there again for the tall ships and the fireworks in July. Can't wait for that lobster. Have a... More
