Charming cafe with inside and outdoors seating on a pretty little harbor located on Southport Island (a 10 minute drive from Boothbay Harbor). Very good food and service although food can be a little delayed when there is a large crowd.

Sailed over from Five Islands. Tied up at the public dock. Friendly staff seated us right away. I had the ribeye and my wife had the scollops. My wife is a very picky eater and I usually end up helping out with her plate. Not this time. She finished way before me. There was nothing left to take home. Our guests had the salmon and they loved it. The side dishes of potato and broccoli were excellent. I will be going back next season.

Service and fried clams were terrible. We had our appetizer before utensils and the waitress told us they were in the dishwasher and waiting for them to be done. Service is probably bad because they automatically add 20% gratuity. The view is nice though.

Sorry to hear that you did not have great service. We are known for having the best fried clams. Were you just angry that your utensils were late??

We stopped here after a visit to Boothbay Harbor and the Maine Aquarium. It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the drive. We were able to sit out on a deck overlooking the adjacent cove on a lovely summer day, which was a big part of the draw for us. I had a delicious garden salad with chicken, full of fresh produce, and my spouse had crab cakes that she said were among the best she has had. Service was very good. All in all, quite enjoyable.
I gave it 4 stars only because we had only one visit, and the parking lot was unpleasantly muddy.

This was our first visit to Olivers. We discovered it in the local paper and decided to try it. There are only a few tables downstairs and they were all filled when we arrived. It was raining and cool so the deck was not an option. There are several tables on the second floor also. We decided to sit on the upper deck area which was open in the front but had a roof over it. The view was beautiful even with the rain. Our server was a young man, very friendly and very accommodating. Two of us had the greek scallop dish which was excellent. The others had the salmon special and the cheeseburger which they also enjoyed very much. We would highly recommend Olivers to anyone and we did while we were in Maine .
