Description: Locally caught lobster is our specialty. Several hundred pounds are stored in our sea water tank. You may select your own from the tank and watch as they are prepared for cooking in our large outdoor pots. We have all sizes of the tasty shellfish, from one to four pounds. To those new to lobster, we will gladly assist on how to best eat them and explain the differences between hard and soft shell. The Outdoor Patio at The Lobster Dock The flavor of Maine is further captured in our other offerings. Stews and chowders are prepared daily from only the freshest ingredients. The shrimp and scallops we use are caught in the waters of the Boothbay Region. Clams are also supplied by local diggers most every day. Our mussels are grown on a salt water farm in Tenants Harbor. Fish caught in the North Atlantic are supplied to us from Boothbay Fish Dealers. We accept only the freshest available. It is not unusual for us to refuse deliveries that do not meet our quality standards.

Enterprising couple who moved to Boothbay Harbor and gave folks what they wanted -- relatively cheap food with good view. You order at a window and select your own picnic table; servers bring your food on take-out plates, so it is not elegant. Two lobster meal was fun but messy, as usual.

The Lobster Dock was great place to eat. You will have to stand in for 15 to 30 minutes but it will be worth the wait! I had the lobster dinner and my husband had the steak and the food was great and prices were affordable. The seating is great with wonderful views of the harbor! Would go back to this restaurant again. Staff very friendly and helpful as well.

I loved The Lobster Dock. We went for dinner with a couple we met while on vacation. Everyone loved it. The lobster roll was delicious and was not at all skimpy on the lobster. It was so fresh! They have tables right on the water, so the view is excellent. The atmosphere is so homey! The service was efficient and friendly. I will definitely go back the next time I am in Boothbay Harbor to try some of their other menu items!

My family and I had dinner at the Lobster Dock while on vacation in Boothbay Harbor. We of course ordered Lobster, one with steamers, and some whole belly fried clams. The Lobster was OK but not the best. We had Lobster at 3 other locations while in Boothbay Harbor and this was the worst of them all. However, the service was very good and the view and atmosphere is fantastic. The prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area.

Every lobster pound has lobster and the prices are pretty much the same. All serve some other sea food and something for land lubbers, but the :Lobster Dock has friendly service and a caring staff. run by a ball of fire owner, Mitch. who makes the rounds to make sure whether you are standing in line or at a table that you are happy. He also serve slow cooked prime rib of beef over the weekends. You stand in line for 15 minutes to give your order and then you find a table. (there are plenty) and the staff comes to find you and bring your order to you. This touch and the kind and courteous staff set this place above any others in the area. Mitch kibbetzes with the patrons and looks over the operation.. H want s everyone to be satisfied and by the number of return guests, that is the case.
