We have been coming here for years and always happy. Tonight's experience was very poor. Prices are very high and quality poor. Lobster prices the worst I have seen, even for the area. Baked potato was undercooked and cold. Won't be back. Head somewhere else....More

We had lunch as this establishment and I would never return. Prices were high. Quality was at best average. Value was poor. This felt like a dining at a food court. Lobsters were ordered at one "company", all other food at another location (i.e. "company"),...More

The Lobster Wharf is one of our favorite places to eat when in Boothbay harbor. It is an easy walk from the hotel, which is very convenient. The view from the deck is spectacular and each lobster is not cooked until you place your order....More

An awesome meal on the deck - Oysters (Buck a Shuck) to start, then mussels and steamers and fish & chips. Very fresh seafood!! You can eat outside or in. It's a casual atmosphere - you order your drinks at one place and your meal...More

We have eaten here in tears past, it is noticeably better than before. Still rustic and "docky" but decent food and drink

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
