Four of us enjoyed dinner of lazy lobster, and seafood stew with mussels, lobster, shrimp, etc. The deck overlooked the harbor, providing a beautiful view of a lighted marina. Service was good, wine was good, food was excellent....a special evening with friends.

Get away from the crowd, walk across the footbridge and enjoy a fantastic lobster roll. Sit outside, grab a beer and experience a real treat. Highly recommend it!!

Someone recommended this place when we mentioned we wanted a lobster roll. We were not disappointed. Lots of tender lobster with a bit of mayonnaise on a buttered, grilled roll. Being from New England, I can say it was one of the best lobster rolls...More

Enjoy a great view of Boothbay Harbor while they cook your fresh seafood meal - a great stop just a bit away from the bustle of the downtown. Always nice options on the menu.

This is how a clam shack should be! Lots of food options (fried seafood, steamers, and even options for the non-seafood crowd), all were fantastic! Nice outdoor seating with fun bands playing. Great fully stocked bar with happy hour. My favorite was the Buck a...More

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
