We have been going to the Boothbay region on vacation for over 20 years and part of our tradition is to have dinner at Brown's once or twice a visit. We have NEVER been disappointed in any way. We have sat on the deck watching the boats come in for the evening. We have run in from the parking lot in pouring rain on a chilly night. We have seen thunderstorms and fireworks. The service is always excellent, warm and friendly. The food is not gourmet dining but well prepared and very representative of New England coastal dining. We were there again last night enjoying lobsters, clams, strawberry shortcake and blueberry pie. A wonderful tradition for our family and a highly recommended dining experience.

Fish and chips $20... This is local fare, how can it possibly cost $20? Turkey dinner $20.... Really? You can buy a whole turkey for $16. Flavor was fine portions were average. Service was brusque.

We booked a night at Brown's because we had tickets to a show at the Boothbay Opera House and didn't want to drive home afterwards. Brown's was the first place we found with a vacancy and no two night minimum. Because we had a show at 7:30, we figured to eat where we were staying and hope for something ok. The menu had the usual lobster bakes and other seafood. I got the special, Bouillabaisse, and my wife got the broiled scallops.

Both were incredibly good and the "presentation" worth of a very gourmet place. Well worth a special trip even if we were not staying over at Brown's. My Caprese salad was also delicious. The only disappointment was the oysters of the half--tasty but VERY small and at $18 for six, not very fairly priced.

Breakfast was also delicious and inexpensive -- $9 for Eggs Benedict.

We had a great view of the harbor both meals.

Ate breakfast at the restaurant twice. Food was excellent, service was great, staff friendly. Most tables had a harbor view.

We went for my father's wedding, the place is beautiful. The deck is a great spot for a wedding party. If air conditioning is a must they have a back room that makes you feel like you're down below an antique ship.

We had the seafood in brandy cream over pasta. Very good. Desserts yummy and the prime rib was raved. Great for a family function, destination wedding, or date night. This was a return visit for us and we will be back again.
