It's a bad sign when the manager tells you that they are under staffed. Terrible service. We left after 30 minutes, and hadn't placed our order. Their service staff was standing around.

The restaurant is right on the waterfront, so we ate our dinner while watching all the activity in the harbor; boats coming and going, people taking their skiffs with their supplies out to their boats or coming in from their boats. The waitress was friendly and helpful, but didn't hover which we appreciated. The food was delicious, well-presented and the... More

Great outdoor deck - weather permitting. Food and service are great! They serve a nice array of foods, and the bar serves up some delicious signature cocktails.

The Nautilus is located where the old hallowed Weathervane restaurant sat stoically on the Belfast waterfont for many years. Times change. The Weathervane went out of business and the Nautilus emerged in it's place. Owned and operated by well thought of former employees of Darby's on High Street - the Nautilus opened in late December 2015 In this perfect location.... More

This was the first restaurant we ate at when arriving to Maine. We were not disappointed. Service was great, though we had to wait about 20 min to be seated, but it was expected with the 10 people we were with. They seemed a bit scared when I told them we are a party of 10, but they handled our... More

Enjoyed a Harbour side lunch at Nautilus at one of the shady outdoor tables with a great waterfront view. Some had the lobster roll which were fresh and tasty. I had the Eggplant Rollatini which was delicious. This was like a lasagna with the Eggplant as the pasta with lots of grilled peppers, covered by a layer of melted cheese,... More
