Hubby and I were there last weekend for an anniversary dinner. As it was Sunday (other places were closed,) and we didn't know the area, we decided to give Archers a try. I was over dressed for how casual it was. It was very noisy...More

All other fried shrimp will now need to measure up to Archer's lightly battered & perfectly fried shrimp. The meal comes with french fries, but the waitress noted we could order a different side; we had garlic mashed potatoes which were yummy & a delightful...More

Lobster must have been boiled, not steamed. Cracked open and water poured out of claws in copious amount. Not as flavorful as some I have eaten in Maine this week. Corn on the cob was good and fresh, but green beans with carrots were over...More

Location is on the pier and the views were nice. We waited longer than anticipated to get drinks, the food was nothing great and you certainly pay more for the location. We would not return if back in the area.

The food was good but not great. It's a touristy seafood venue. We chose it for the view and the extensive menu. We all enjoyed our meals but would probably not go back for dinner since sides were mostly fried options. Would go back for...More

Stopped for dinner, but was way too noisy. Tried outside seating on a chilly night, but opted for soup and left. Wouldn't go back. They do have a good view of the waterfront

Our table had some good mussels, surf n turf, tacos, and shrimp haddock combo. They were all very good. Finished with some great blueberry and coconut cream pie. Other recent negative reviews had lowered my expectations but everything was good. Good service and location by...More

We are locals and love Archer's. The food is always great and they have a wide selection of craft beers. The menu is naturally heavily leaning toward seafood, but the offer other choices too.

Two of us ordered baked stuffed haddock - both meals were delivered to the table under cooked. Definitely suggest skipping the french fries. Mashed potatoes were ok. Waitress was accommodating but management only offered 20% off. Not a place we would return.

Yesterday (10/6/2017), after visiting the Farnsworth Museum and Olsen House (Christina's World/Andrew Wyeth), we were looking for a nice seafood restaurant in Rockland to have lunch. Since we had never been to Archer’s on the Pier, we decided to give it a try. My wife...More

Archer’s on the Pier is located directly on Rockland’s pristine waterfront. Come enjoy an innovative and tasty menu for lunch and dinner created with the best sustainable seafood and local produce. If you stop in on Sunday, we offer a light fare for brunch while you enjoy Jazz playing softly in the background. Sit out on our large deck and watch the windjammers drift by as you relish the fresh sea air. You will also notice the ferry that transports locals and visitors to and from Vinalhaven and North Haven from Rockland’s port.
