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.

We only ate here once this year. I had the lobster roll with mayo which was great, almost as good as, just a notch below the Boothbay Lobster Wharf. I also had the pint of scallops, fresh and delicious, lightly fried, just grand. My wife had the crab cakes which are outstanding while my daughter had the cold lobster roll as well.

The only minor negative I must note, and I don't want to sound picky, but for a buck seventy-five you get about three ounces of coleslaw. It was very good coleslaw but for that price I would like to see a larger portion.

Service is quick and attentive and the view is wonderful. The tab for the above and three sodas was about 81 bucks.

Walked across the foot bridge to the lobster dock. The line was long to place our order. Just one person taking orders. Our only complaint. We started with calamari and lobster stew. The little lobster stew was rich and simple loaded with lobster. Highly recommend !!!We shared twin lobster and steamers. All fresh from the local waters. Steamers were expensive but plentiful! We shared a pitcher of beer amongst the table went well with all seafood. The picnic table setting perfect for Maine- and allowed kids to explore.

Casual dining and good food for the area! Get there for a sunset and you won't be disappointed. Prices a bit high was our only complaint
