Good food, prepared and served, on the patio overlooking 'The Harbor', with a view out to the lighthouses while a fireball sun sets over the village. Terrific venue. Good value. Great staff. Do not miss the chance to experience the Boothbay Lobster Wharf.

I love lobster. As someone who's lived in Maine for 10 years, I love to find out-of-the-way, local, lobster shacks and enjoy fresh cooked-on-the-spot lobster. Boothbay Lobster Wharf is all that and more. Close to quaint downtown Boothbay, it's the perfect spot to bring friends and family who visit and want "the true Maine experience." Prices are reasonable for what... More

Mitch and his family have been running this successful operation for years and it is as good today as it was the first visit 10 years ago. Superb view of the harbor and easy to get to from the other side...just a short walk across the bridge.....and they will ship live lobsters to you....any size you want.

We had a girls weekend out, and it was recommended we go here for lobster. It was incredibly casual, and incredibly good. Great time and great value!

Four of us enjoyed dinner of lazy lobster, and seafood stew with mussels, lobster, shrimp, etc. The deck overlooked the harbor, providing a beautiful view of a lighted marina. Service was good, wine was good, food was excellent....a special evening with friends.

Get away from the crowd, walk across the footbridge and enjoy a fantastic lobster roll. Sit outside, grab a beer and experience a real treat. Highly recommend it!!

Someone recommended this place when we mentioned we wanted a lobster roll. We were not disappointed. Lots of tender lobster with a bit of mayonnaise on a buttered, grilled roll. Being from New England, I can say it was one of the best lobster rolls I have ever had. The views aren't too bad either and the staff was very... More

Ordered a lobster roll, which LOOKED wonderful... large pieces of lobster lightly coated with mayo on a nicely toasted roll... tasted good too, but meat was tough. Same with the pint of fried clams that my husband ordered... tough & rubbery. Will not eat there again.
