A unique experience... you order your food at a window, pick it up and then sit at picnic tables (on the deck or inside). You also have the option to select your live lobster which they cook in pots outside.

Ate there with 3 other people wife got the mussels which were terrible so tiny and served cold. Corn on the cob was also terrible, worst than cow corn ground up for silage. So beware.

What a treat to eat lobster sitting by the water surrounded by fishing boats! Complete with instructions, we cracked into those lobster lovelies. The plate of calamari as a starter was huge and really tasty! Unforgettable experience.

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
