Charming cafe with inside and outdoors seating on a pretty little harbor located on Southport Island (a 10 minute drive from Boothbay Harbor). Very good food and service although food can be a little delayed when there is a large crowd.

Service and fried clams were terrible. We had our appetizer before utensils and the waitress told us they were in the dishwasher and waiting for them to be done. Service is probably bad because they automatically add 20% gratuity. The view is nice though.

Sorry to hear that you did not have great service. We are known for having the best fried clams. Were you just angry that your utensils were late??

We stopped here after a visit to Boothbay Harbor and the Maine Aquarium. It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the drive. We were able to sit out on a deck overlooking the adjacent cove on a lovely summer day, which...More

I go to Oliver's frequently; diverse menu, eat inside or out, and overlooking Cosy Harbor. So relaxing.

I check out menus of places before I visit and I came to Oliver's for the hot lobster roll, and it sure didn't disappoint. Instead of just a regular roll, they use a section of soft Italian bread that they cut out of the loaf....More

We rolled into Oliver's on a rainy Thursday afternoon and sat at the bar totally entertained by chef Michael and his crackerjack crew. The Glidden Point Oysters arrived a little later and chef Michael whipped us up a bunch with his famous Ginger Shallot Mignonette....More

Nice local place, right on the harbor dock. Closes a bit early (8pm), but once they take your name, you get seated and served no matter how long the wait (even though we didn't really have to wait very long). Very pleasant service, but WOW...More
