This was a great way to spend an afternoon. We loved seeing how the staff cooks lobsters, clams, potatoes, corn and hard-boiled eggs (be sure to ask why they do that!) for a huge crowd on giant outdoor wood-fired grill. Go hungry -- you won't believe how much food you'll get. We brought leftovers back to our cottage!

Great trip to and from Cabbage Island. The island is always beautiful to visit. We went on the sunset cruise and it was exciting. I generally don't get full but there was PLENTY to eat. Did it last year, did it again this year and, when we return, will probably do it again.

Such a lovely afternoon. Highly recommend! We brought my 86-year-old uncle there for his birthday. He said it was the best birthday he had ever had. The boat ride over was scenic. The island was relaxing. The food was superb. And the staff and owners were delightful. Felt like we stepped back in time to a simpler, kinder world. I would have given it six stars if I had one more hour to just sit by the water and enjoy the scenery.

Would highly recommend for a fun summer day. Loved the personal attention from making the reservation, to checking in, to the cruise to the island. Would suggest planning early as they fill up months ahead. Board in pier area of Booth Bay (I’d recommend sitting on the right or port side on the way out). It’s a leisurely cruise out to the island, now owned by two brothers. The captain points about beautiful homes, light houses and osprey nests along the way. When you arrive on the island you can choose to sit inside or out. We sat down by where they cook the lobsters Lee by third generation nephew whose been summering there for almost 30 years. Loved all their stories but mostly the true curtesy and kindness of everyone. Food is excellent- fresh steamed lobster, oysters, corn on the cob, baked potato, an onion, and a hard boiled egg - not saying why - you have to ask. Dessert is blue berry cake. Perfect for groups, family fun day or couples. Yard games to play…just a throw back to a perfect Mainer afternoon
