“Dinner”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

The food was excellent. The atmosphere was very nice and the piano music during dinner was a plus. The view of the harbor is spectacular and the fire pit out on the lawn was beautiful. It made for a very cozy dinner.

“WOW”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

This gem is hidden in the back of the Boothbay Harbor Inn. Beautiful setting with a view of the Harbor seen from all over the room. They even had a piano player. Felt like I had walked into a private club. Great service and food.

“Not bad but was disappointing.”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

This restaurant seems to try to present itself as a nice, semi upscale place but fails completely. The service was untrained and the food was mediocre at best. The lobster was served as though we were at a lobster pound --- 1lb in a bowl, uncracked with no sides---- which is fine if that's where we choose to dine! But we were in a "fancy" dining room with a piano player. You expect a little something more. Our server also brought us the check before even asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. Okay, I guess we are done?
It wasn't horrible but with all of the options to choose from, we would not go back here.

“Enjoyable Evening”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The Restaurant had a beautiful view of the sunset over Boothbay Harbor. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. The Lobster roil was full of meat and my wife loved the crab cakes. They had had a lovely wild Maine blueberry pie served warm with vanilla ice cream that was to die for. They had a piano bar that played very enjoyable dinner music in the background.
