We decided to stop in Belfast for a lunch. We hadn't been in the area for a while and remembered a restaurant by the water. We went in . We were greeted by the hostess and seated. We looked over the menu and decided to have a big lunch. That is if we could get the waitress to come to... More

Driving up the Maine coast headed to Bar Harbor, my husband and I stopped to check out the waterfront in Belfast. We spotted the Nautilus on the waterfront and decided it was a good time to take a break. It was a gorgeous day so we decided to take the opportunity to sit outside by the water. We ordered the...

A light lunch was all we needed and we loved the look of the menu and also it is always nice to have a sea view, so we decided on Nautilus. A welcome smile and a great salad and bowl of chowder really hit the spot. The only reason I don't give this full marks is that the waitress was... More

Stopped by for lunch. We were not starving having eaten well for days but didn't want to miss a vacation lunch. Our request for a table with a view was easily accommodated. Service was very good -efficient but not intrusive. Hubby & I settled on sharing 2 appetizers and each getting a bowl of clam chowder and a side salad.... More

As “locals” we have enjoyed several meals at Nautilus since their move to the waterfront by the tugboats. Always very good and Saturday night was no exception. How pleasantly surprised we were to see the dinner specials that included grilled rosemary lamb chops with red wine braised onions, pan seared orange-ginger pork belly with sautéed oyster mushrooms and grilled Mako...

We sat out on the deck on a beautiful October afternoon. Our lunch which consisted of salads, chowder and cornbread was delicious. This would be a terrific spot for relaxing with your choice of beverage and enjoying the view.

Recently ate here with my wife, daughter and son in law. Kids had lobster, wife had seafood Provençal, I did seafood pie. Service was good. Food was great. They also had a nice selection of regional beers, and a few good whiskies which I was able to taste. Staff was very friendly and the setting was very nice.

Stopped by this restaurant for a nice dinner with my wife. It has a nice view, and the staff was very friendly! Everything on the menu sounded so delicious, I had a hard time making up my mind. Eventually, I made my decision, and had a GREAT dinner! I certainly recommend making a stop here! Fantastic food!

The Nautilus is now located on the Belfast waterfront where the Weathervane restaurant had been. They have a very good menu featuring a variety of seafood. Everyone in our group had a different entree and they were all delicious.
