Review of Cabbage Island

This was a highlight of our trip to Boothbay. Come hungry for this delicious and enormous spread of chowder, 2 lobsters, corn, potatoes, and an egg. Be sure to save room for their unforgettable blueberry cake. The owners (two brothers) were so friendly and try to chat with all the guests. Go on an island exploration while you are there, there are trails anid lovely sights.

The Cabbage Island Clambake was delightful! Have been to Boothbay Harbor many times, but never heard of this -- until I checked TripAdvisor.

Highly recommend it. Lovely boat trip, gracious hosts, wonderful clambake. Don't miss it.

Ditto all of the positve remarks below.
The tour of the harbor was great. Very informative. The weather was perfect on the day we went. We took the 5:00 tour which ended with an aweasome sunset as we sat on the rocks and took it all in. The food was plentiful and delicious. We were stuffed only to see them arrive with an oversized slice of blueberry cake.Yum! Yum ! Yum! The Moore family is wonderful. Very, very friendly and personable. The hospitality was great. We are going to take every friend and family member that comes to Maine for a visit. Great time! Say hi to Bob anf Wayne...and Lucas, if his seashell shop is open! :)

How good is the Cabbage Island experience? It’s so good that even though we don’t eat seafood we return year after year after year! Yes the main meal is lobsters and clams, but for those of us who do not partake, we order the optional baked chicken that comes with all the trimmings of the seafood meal, and we enjoy it! We have been out to the island in beautiful sunny weather, rain, fog, heat and wind; each time we enjoy it more! The scenery is beautiful, the staff the friendliest around, the food delicious and plentiful and the island atmosphere unlike anything you would get in downtown Boothbay Harbor. We have brought my parents, sisters and their families, friends, etc. Everyone has a wonderful time and says the lobsters are the best around. On top of it all – wonderful hospitality from the Moore family – year after year! Can’t wait for summer of 2011!
