Walked in and ordered two south of Maine style lobster rolls to-go; perfectly cooked & seasoned lobster, crunchy but light bun, and just the right amount of warm butter. Best lobster roll I had in Boothbar Harbor for a really good price.

Went for a light dinner and a beer after a huge late lunch in Freeport. Enjoyed the lobster roll and the salads we ordered. Not fancy but good for a casual bite.

We ate our first and last meals in Boothbay here on our recent trip. It never disappoints. Shrimp and Lobster cakes, Fried Pickles, Blueberry Pie, good drinks, and great servers.

A large group of us had dinner and everyone left happy. All of the seafood choices were very good. We also enjoyed the happy hour discounts on drinks and appetizers. Service was also good.

Hello, It is to cold here and there is still snow on the ground. Boothbay Harbor always said they rolled up the sidewalks in the winter, and they haven't put them back down yet. We will open the third week in May! Thanks for... More
