Incredible Lobster Roll experience!. Initially we were a little shocked at the price for a lobster roll, but since we were there to have lobster we chose the standard size. To our great surprise, the lobster roll was extremely generously fille with 10 to 11 oz of lobster which made for a great feast! We (8 of us) ate on... More

The lobster was fresh. We splurged on the jumbo rolls and weren't disappointed! This is a casual atmosphere with take out style food and a full service bar. place your order and then dine on the wharf looking over Boothbay Harbor.

My first visit to Boothbay this summer. I had a burger, cooked perfectly, juicy and flavorful. Everyone in my group raved. The portion was generous, the service quick and friendly. And an ideal Maine setting.

The second night we got the takeout lobster...they cook it while you wait...and then we took it back to... More

The most juicy lobster I have ever had. There is nothing better than soft shell steamed lobster. At one point I put my finger through the claw and the juice squirted everywhere!!! On my pants, on my shirt, in my hair and across the table to my husband. Well worth the mess. The lobsters are so fresh you can still... More

Prices were not the same as the website video, so they need to update that. We had the lobster chowder and the flavor was fantastic. The broth was very watery and should be thickened to give it a heartier chowder consistency. Overall, with the view...it was pretty good.
