We try to eat at co ops when in Maine and this location was formerly a co op. Same picnic tables, same access to great lobster and clams. Lobster rolls were loaded with meat and just the very minimum of dressing -- which is ideal....More

Lobster was mealy, mushy, unappetizing, untasty. It's hard to ruin lobster, but they managed to succeed.

This is one of the places locals dine. It's unique in that there are multiple buildings and offerings - along with very relaxed dining. . . . We especially liked that we could easily walk there, dine outside, along with our puppy and absorb the...More

We had a great family dinner here. Very fresh clams,lobster and mussels. Nothing fancy. Order your food and sit at picnic tables outside on the dock although there was seating inside. You can watch your lobster being prepared.

We recently went back after a number of years away, and it brought back all sorts of wonderful memories. Nothing beats eating fresh seafood on the dock. This informal, casual, picnic-table spot offers delicious food in a great, easy going environment. The views are wonderful....More

Great happy hour followed by our 1 & 1/2 lb Lobster with tasty corn on the cob. Great environment and friendly staff. Always a great place to visit for dinner and scenery.

Lobster, crabmeat, lobster stew, lobster roll- all excellent. Sides - good. Blueberry pie - very disappointing : too much gelatin and not enough flavor, poor crust. We'll be back, but will skip dessert.

Live music, 'Buck a Shuck', cold beer and a succulent lobster - there is nothing better. This is a few mins walk from the town center and worth every step. Service was spectacular and even though you may feel like you wander around a bit...More

Management changed two years ago and we've eaten their both years. Lobster doesn't change because management does. The food is just as good as before.

They should be open by then. Boothbay Harbor is a great place for seafood restaurants. You don't need to go fancy. We'll be there again for the tall ships and the fireworks in July. Can't wait for that lobster. Have a... More
