Description: Locally caught lobster is our specialty. Several hundred pounds are stored in our sea water tank. You may select your own from the tank and watch as they are prepared for cooking in our large outdoor pots. We have all sizes of the tasty shellfish, from one to four pounds. To those new to lobster, we will gladly assist on how to best eat them and explain the differences between hard and soft shell. The Outdoor Patio at The Lobster Dock The flavor of Maine is further captured in our other offerings. Stews and chowders are prepared daily from only the freshest ingredients. The shrimp and scallops we use are caught in the waters of the Boothbay Region. Clams are also supplied by local diggers most every day. Our mussels are grown on a salt water farm in Tenants Harbor. Fish caught in the North Atlantic are supplied to us from Boothbay Fish Dealers. We accept only the freshest available. It is not unusual for us to refuse deliveries that do not meet our quality standards.

Folks, this is a busy place so be prepared to queue but waiting time can be spent reading the extensive menu pasted up on the wall. We placed our order after approx. 20 minutes and, given the sheer volume of food that was being prepared, expected to wait at least as long for our meal. Shame on us, it arrived very quickly and it was absolutely delicious Scallops are my all-time favorite food and these beauties were to die for, they were the best I have ever had and I have had many! My husband had ordered the lobster dinner and it was just as good. The portions were to our liking as was the price of a bottle of Pinot Grigio, just 16.95 $ for a bottle.
There is a really good atmosphere in the place, service is fast and competent, the view over the bay is beautiful, what more can you ask for?
Would highly recommend the Lobster Dock and wish I could give a higher score than a 5.

A really authentic feel to this place. Lobster can be hand picked and tastes delicious. Eat inside outside or takeaway with or without a glass of nice wine or beer etc. Good selection on menu. Highly recommended

Had to have a fresh Maine lobster and this is a no frills walk up to the counter place . Pick the fresh lobster and a bottle of wine with 2 plastic cups . They bring your lobster out on paper plates! You can eat inside or outside on the water ! Fresh and good !
