We found this place just recently after everyone shut down for the winter and another business recommended it to us for lunch.. We bought our North Carolina Family to the area to show off our little fishing towns. It's a little out of the way, but so worth the trip. We live 50 minutes away and have since been back... More

Enjoyed an early dinner in a cozy setting. Generous garden salad with unusual vinaigrette dressing and succulent Maine crab cake for one, abundant serving of sautéed scallops with garlic mashed potatoes plus steamed carrots with asparagus for another. Very tasty meal!

Looking for a place to eat after an invigorating walk through the Christmas lights display at the Coastal Botanical Gardens, we drove to Boothbay center where we were greeted with the winter land lights of this quaint coastal town. We landed at the Harborside Tavern which was serving food at tables and at the bar. We choose the pork belly... More

Stopped in on a chilly winter weekend afternoon to a warm fire in the bar area. Had lunch at the bar. Crab cakes and fish tacos were very fresh and well made / seasoned. Good local beer selection as well.

Four of us went in for drinks before going to the Gardens Aglow. Chips and Dip was delicious. We went back for dinner later and was little disappointed with the restaurant. They were out of ribs, so ordered the steak tip special which as not really steak tips. Room we sat in was a little chilly.

A dozen of us came here for dinner the day after Thanksgiving before going to the Gardens Aglow event at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. We made reservations online, which was super easy. I emailed on a day the restaurant was closed, expecting to get an answer the following day. But the owner got back to me within about an... More

We stopped in for a lunch and it was everything that we expected. Nice atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, and excellent food. I had the Haddock sandwich and my Fiance had the Chicken Quesadillas. Food, service everything was wonderful. Will go back for dinner next time we are in the area.

We walked across the foot bridge and decided we were hungry. Since it had been sold this year I wanted to try it. I ordered the Special. Lobster Club ($21.00) but it was huge! Enough for two, if I remember correctly it even had avocado on it! I do believe I asked for a box, it was so big. But... More
