While the boiled lobster was ok, the shrimp roll was a joke. Bland deep fried shrimp on a Hot Dog bun.... nothing else. The boys preparing the lobster were somewhat clueless. They forgot to add the shell cracker and a bib.

Not fancy. Next to lobster dock wholesalers with nice view of harbor. Plenty of traditional Maine seafood choices. Lobster is the star. Indoor and outdoor dining. Bar and country music during evenings. Worthy. Casual.

Lobster, steak, chowder they have it all. The prices are in line with the rest of the town. The main courses are delicious but the desserts are to die for. Everything is so fresh.

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
