Stopped by for lunch. We were not starving having eaten well for days but didn't want to miss a vacation lunch. Our request for a table with a view was easily accommodated. Service was very good -efficient but not intrusive. Hubby & I settled on sharing 2 appetizers and each getting a bowl of clam chowder and a side salad.... More

As “locals” we have enjoyed several meals at Nautilus since their move to the waterfront by the tugboats. Always very good and Saturday night was no exception. How pleasantly surprised we were to see the dinner specials that included grilled rosemary lamb chops with red wine braised onions, pan seared orange-ginger pork belly with sautéed oyster mushrooms and grilled Mako...

We sat out on the deck on a beautiful October afternoon. Our lunch which consisted of salads, chowder and cornbread was delicious. This would be a terrific spot for relaxing with your choice of beverage and enjoying the view.

Recently ate here with my wife, daughter and son in law. Kids had lobster, wife had seafood Provençal, I did seafood pie. Service was good. Food was great. They also had a nice selection of regional beers, and a few good whiskies which I was able to taste. Staff was very friendly and the setting was very nice.

Stopped by this restaurant for a nice dinner with my wife. It has a nice view, and the staff was very friendly! Everything on the menu sounded so delicious, I had a hard time making up my mind. Eventually, I made my decision, and had a GREAT dinner! I certainly recommend making a stop here! Fantastic food!

The Nautilus is now located on the Belfast waterfront where the Weathervane restaurant had been. They have a very good menu featuring a variety of seafood. Everyone in our group had a different entree and they were all delicious.

We took a day trip to Belfast having heard that it's a town on the rebound with new shops, an expanding food experience and a refreshing new vibe. After a beautiful day there, I can say that's all pretty much true. Very clear and understandable that folks are moving into Belfast and re-energizing this very beautiful and charming village on...

Judging by the evening crowds, this is the place folks head for a nice dinner. If you forgot to make a reservation, it's usually pretty easy to get a seat at the bar in the middle of the restaurant where the full menu is served. The woman sitting next to me was eating a lobster scampi that smelled so good,... More
