The lobster was fresh. We splurged on the jumbo rolls and weren't disappointed! This is a casual atmosphere with take out style food and a full service bar. place your order and then dine on the wharf looking over Boothbay Harbor.

My first visit to Boothbay this summer. I had a burger, cooked perfectly, juicy and flavorful. Everyone in my group raved. The portion was generous, the service quick and friendly. And an ideal Maine setting.

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
