Great and typical seafood, piled high, fresh and fun. Happy joint with good service and friendly staff - we were there twice and the bands were good although a bit loud for table chat. (This is always a dilemma, no?)

The place was packed so I had high hopes but we were disappointed with both the food and the service. We waited way too long for very mediocre food.

Lobster stew was inedible. Too much cumin. Good service. Nice setting and decor. Salad was good. ..............?................

We were told McSeagull's was a favorite of locals and tourists. Split a delicious seafood platter offered to us three ways-fried, broiled or grilled. We chose grilled. Enjoyed the trio of musicians who added to the atmosphere of this restaurant. Casual.

We had very good food. My wife and daughter had Maine shrimp and I had the large seafood platter. PLENTY of food and the breading was not greasy whatsoever. Fries were great too. We'll definitely go back! Kids meals were a little steep at $7 not including drink.

Do not eat at this restaurant! Tonight I ordered stuffed lobster tail, and after a few minutes the waitress told us they were out of stuffed tails (which meant the restaurant orders them already prepared and frozen). So I got fried shrimp -- 6 ounces of tiny, pretty tasteless shrimp. My husband had steak, which was almost too tough to... More

Right on the pier, this restaurant is just off the main street. Our dinner was tasty, especially the chowder.

The owners of this restaurant and the few others along water are together - so my guess is the quality is similar. However we only at McSeagulls's - granted it was a little late - 8ish but we order ribs and potatoes. Ribs were lukewarm and potatoes barely warm - John the waiter was not good at all. One would...

The name should have been our first clue. Second clue - our party was shoved in a corner table with barely enough room for us to fit. There was confusion as to who our waitress was and once established she was well - inattentive. The food was fair (at best), the atmosphere drab and worn, and the service spotty. Not... More

We visited twice during our stay in Boothbay. Glad we gave it a second chance. Lunch on our second visit was a much better experience than dinner was on our first visit. The first time, it was a Monday evening and it seemed obvious that it was at the end of their season. Service was poor (slow and thoughtless). Our... More
