We went to have lobster rolls for lunch. Did not disappoint. The views were great as was the food. Plenty of variety on the menu to pick from.

Good food, prepared and served, on the patio overlooking 'The Harbor', with a view out to the lighthouses while a fireball sun sets over the village. Terrific venue. Good value. Great staff. Do not miss the chance to experience the Boothbay Lobster Wharf.

I love lobster. As someone who's lived in Maine for 10 years, I love to find out-of-the-way, local, lobster shacks and enjoy fresh cooked-on-the-spot lobster. Boothbay Lobster Wharf is all that and more. Close to quaint downtown Boothbay, it's the perfect spot to bring friends...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
