I enjoyed lunch at Boothbay Lobster Wharf. Ice cold Dogfish Head IPA and delicious lobster!! Incredibly friendly server. Great view of Boothbay Harbor. I feared it may have been a tourist trap, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great quality food and beverage.

We were there on August 5, 2016. We have eaten here once a summer for many years. Sadly, the quality just was not there on our last visit. Our lobster was overcooked, and the sea cooking water probably was not changed as the lobsters were...More

I ordered a 1.5 lb steamed lobster and it was not what I was expecting. Everyone raves about Maine lobsters and this tasted like the lobsters I buy at the local grocery store but 3 times the price.

We came over to this place from our boat, across the harbor. Our traveling hosts said this was THE place for lobster dinner. We tied up our dinghy between working lobster boats, climbed the stairs up to the open air deck, already half full of...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
