Nautilus is now located on the waterfront in Belfast. We visited recently for lunch. Winter in Maine is not crowded, so we did not have to wait for parking and seating (the summer can be much busier). The restaurant has excellent views of Belfast harbor. All of our meals, especially the shrimp & grits, we're very good. The lunch portions... More

The restaurant is now located downtown directly on the waterfront. If you love tugboats, you will love the view! Often there are one or two moored adjacent to the restaurant. The menu is varied, features seafood, and provides selections for many different appetites and tastes. Our server was delightful, patient and helpful. The food is great!

Service was great. Nice diversified menu. Right at the Belfast wharf. Doesn't get any better. I had the fried dill pickles (try them) and a crab flatbread. Both great.

We ate here the 3 nights we were in Belfast 2 years ago, and the 2 nights we ate out there this year. It has a new location, but the same delicious food and excellent service.

We had a pleasant experience with a friend. I ordered from the happy hour menu, which was very good. The others reported their food was good.

I went with the seared ahi Tina and seaweed, and a porter, the other half had the flatbread with crab meat. Where we are from we consume Chesapeake Bay crabs, "blue crabs", up here in... More

We decided to stop in Belfast for a lunch. We hadn't been in the area for a while and remembered a restaurant by the water. We went in . We were greeted by the hostess and seated. We looked over the menu and decided to have a big lunch. That is if we could get the waitress to come to... More

Driving up the Maine coast headed to Bar Harbor, my husband and I stopped to check out the waterfront in Belfast. We spotted the Nautilus on the waterfront and decided it was a good time to take a break. It was a gorgeous day so we decided to take the opportunity to sit outside by the water. We ordered the...

A light lunch was all we needed and we loved the look of the menu and also it is always nice to have a sea view, so we decided on Nautilus. A welcome smile and a great salad and bowl of chowder really hit the spot. The only reason I don't give this full marks is that the waitress was... More
