I'd rate a five for location and a three for food, but since I can't do that I've gone down the middle. I enjoy eating out at different restaurants thru out the state (different locations, different times of the year) and although food is food...More

I ordered a 1.5 lb steamed lobster and it was not what I was expecting. Everyone raves about Maine lobsters and this tasted like the lobsters I buy at the local grocery store but 3 times the price.

We had lobster rolls in a few different places around Boothbay Harbor and this is the only place we went back to. The lobster is fantastic and super fresh. Oh, and you'll need awhile to get though it, huge portion. Enjoy!

We visited here almost 50 years ago, and it's still the same. Super fresh seafood and add ons. A little more expensive than other no frills places, but wow what a great experience eating out on the dock after lobster/clams/mussels are freshly steamed. All was...More

Just visited on 08/07/16 at about 2:45pm. Ordered Fried clams, haddock sandwich, fries, and lobster "chowder". The deliverable was far from a chowder, as defined by Maine locals and even the dictionary definition. Chowders contains potatos and onions, along with a base and primary indregient,...More

We come up to our cottage every summer and we make multiple stops at the Boothbay Lobster Wharf. Just had steamed lobster and raw oysters. DELICIOUS!

This is our 2nd trip to Boothbay Harbor, ME and our landlord suggested the Lobster Co-op, the former name of the Boothbay Lobster Wharf, for steamed lobsters to go. We stopped off earlier in the day to check them out. There is a restaurant there,...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
