Wonderful fresh lobsters and sides. Casual dining on outside benches with a great sunset view. Pick your lobsters.

The Lobster Wharf is one of our favorite places to eat when in Boothbay harbor. It is an easy walk from the hotel, which is very convenient.

The view from the deck is spectacular and each lobster is not cooked until you place your order. We had the soft shell lobsters on two occasions and they were delicious. It is hard to beat lobster dipped in butter!

We were disappointed that the Blueberry pie was made with regular blueberries and not Wild Maine Blueberries. Wild Maine Blueberries and Lobster are our two favorite things to eat in Maine. But, they have apparently been successful in dealing with the seagull problem. We didn't see any seagulls attempting to steal lobsters this trip.

The last night, we ordered the Lobster Rolls, which were $23, but absolutely loaded with lobster. The sandwiches were huge and delicious. We had ordered a Lobster Roll elsewhere earlier in the week and were somewhat disappointed. These were delicious, with just the right amount of mayonnaise and worth every penny. They were the best Lobster Rolls we have had over many trips to Maine.

An awesome meal on the deck - Oysters (Buck a Shuck) to start, then mussels and steamers and fish & chips. Very fresh seafood!! You can eat outside or in. It's a casual atmosphere - you order your drinks at one place and your meal at another. They call your number when your meal is ready. There is tons of seating on the deck with a great view of boothbay harbor. It's a great family owned business! There is music on some nights and afternoons. The band playing was a local band and they were great. Lots of locals and just a relaxing meal!

We have eaten here in tears past, it is noticeably better than before. Still rustic and "docky" but decent food and drink

Upon arrival the little ones (6 & 8) had to use the restroom. They looked very neat and clean. They did, however, smell like a port-a-potty on the last day of the county fair with swarming flies to boot.

We ordered two cheeseburgers, fried haddock sandwich, a lobster blt, cheese sticks, and 3 bottled drinks. You can choose a bag of chips (no substitutions for fries etc allowed) to accompany your sandwich. Our choices were either Lay's plain or barbecue. The total came to $72.xx.

The kids said the cheeseburgers were good. They were big and the kids only ate half each.

My fried haddock sandwich was delicious and filling. The tartar sauce was really good as well. You get one of those little plastic deli containers 3/4 full of the tartar sauce. I could have used more, but it was sufficient enough.

My husband's lobster blt looked delicious. He said it was great and would get it again.

The mozzarella sticks that we got for the table tasted like they were fried too early to be done with the meal and just sat waiting. It was like I baked some from frozen at home in my oven and then left them overnight on the counter. A small deli container of marinara sauce came with it.

We decided to skip dessert as lunch was way more expensive than we thought it would come to. Although the prices are clearly displayed.

We checked out the fish market afterwards. It was small. There wasn't a lot offered. We peeked into the lobster tank area. That was cool. Also free parking.
