This is a nice little convenience store (kinda like an old school country store) with a full deli (although it closes early like maybe 3:PM). You can get basic supply's, food, drinks, smokes...etc...

The Harbor General Store, located at 12 Commercial St., has one of the best lunches around, and definately the best lobster roll sandwich in the middle of lobster roll heaven. Each and every sandwich contains an entire tail section, as well as easily identifyable claw meat and knuckles. The sauce is mayonnaise base but significantly thinned. Even the obligatory lettuce leaf was fresh and crisp. It's served on a sub roll (10 to 12"?) and at $12 it is easily the best priced deal in town, and as fresh and delicious as they come. It might have been the best lobster roll I've ever had.

We also had clam chowder, made fresh that morning, with big, meaty chunks of Maine potatoe and LOTS of diced clams. It's a milk base so it may appear thin, but it was absolutely delicious and the aroma hits you as soon as you lift the lid to the pot. Highly recommended.

My companion also had a roast beef sandwich, served with mayo and the standard veggies. It was not only fresh and delicious, but also plentiful. Served cold, it was still easy to discern the slow roasted flavor with just a hint of garlic and pepper. It would have made a meal by itself.

There are a few scattered tables and a bar-against-the-wall space that looks out over some moorings on the bay. It is also indeed a real general store so you can probably find whatever prepackaged culinary delight you're craving. Alcoholic beverages are sold but you may not consume them on premesis. A friendly and efficient staff made for an overall excellent experience.

All in all, one of the better finds in Boothbay Harbor.

In the village center. Over the years, this store as changed from a full country store to one that seems to cater to take out deli type meals and beverages of all types. They do have several small tables; however, I recommend that you take your fare outside to the small park about 200 ft. To the right of the store. To to the picnic tables behind the store. Both these sires are on the harbor edge.

Loved the merchandise. I purchased a coat for a minimal amount of money and other gifts to bring home to my family. Love, love, love it! Just a hop, skip and jump from our hotel.

Closes too early. We always seem to be too late to get into the store. It looks great from the window. The closest grocery (Hannaford) is miles away.
