We chose Kaler's based on their reviews, and we were not impressed. The service throughout the meal was slow; at several points I wanted to ask the waitress what was going on. When the food came, the portions were small for salad and vegetables. Even the baked potato was small. The fish portion was OK, and the fish preparation was... More

A nice evening dinner, good atmosphere, I had fried lobster and it was delicious! We walked from our motel, small village/town style community, everything is within walking distance, this place is locally and family owned, came highly recommended and I HAVE TO AGREE!

Such a charming place to dine. Great view of the harbor, super friendly staff, tasty food, affordable prices, relaxed atmosphere. I had the Harbor Delight: Two hot dogs, baked beans, fries and slaw. Our server, Lori was awesome. The owner is especially pleasant, personable and made us feel so welcome. We will definitely eat here again next time we're in... More

While in Boothbay this is a must stop. We always make it a dinner date. Excellent service, incredible food and to sit out on the deck and have dinner is just a dream. They have a new menu and you have got to try the Lobster corn chowda. You can make a meal out of just that.But since your already... More

It is right on the water and within a short walking distance from Cap'n Fish's pier. Reasonably priced.

Recommended to us by our hotel as a great place to eat, we were not disappointed. It was so good that we actually ate their twice. My husband is allergic to seafood so sometimes his options are rather limited. But Kaler's had BarBQ pork shanks which he ate both times we were there. I tasted them and they were outstanding....

We visited a few years ago and looked forward to having another meal at Kalers. We sat outside on a beautiful day and enjoyed the sun. We had 2 cups of chowder and shared an appetizer. The portions and prices were reasonable but the food was a bit bland. Overall though it was a nice visit & we will return.... More

Came here for lunch during my stay. The staff is very friendly. I was a little disappointed we couldn't sit outside, because they told us they were short-staffed (and it literally would have only been about three more steps for the server to come outside), but they were so nice that I can't hold it against them. I got a... More
