Good lunch not great, service average, feels like your eating in a basement. Lacks natural light. Waitress was very chatty to an extent of disrupting our lunch but we were on vacation so it did not bother us.

A seafood restaurant, the lobster chowder was superb. The haddock sandwich was very good. Cute seaside decor with dockside seating.

Went for lunch on recommendation of a shop owner, sat by window, service was fast and friendly. We both had the mates size fried shrimp, cooked to perfection. Perfect size for lunch before visiting the rest of the little shops in the area.

Right on the water. Really good potato skins. Just had an appetizer. Good happy hour. Thought about going back for a lunch or dinner, but we like to try different places. Would go back.

Hello, It is to cold here and there is still snow on the ground. Boothbay Harbor always said they rolled up the sidewalks in the winter, and they haven't put them back down yet. We will open the third week in May! Thanks for... More
