Lobster, steak, chowder they have it all. The prices are in line with the rest of the town. The main courses are delicious but the desserts are to die for. Everything is so fresh.

Excellent lobster and fresh corn! Cooked to perfection. Perfect night to eat outside. Our third visit in as many years and look forward to return!

We visited in September and the food was very good. A little expensive. We enjoyed sitting on the harbor front dock while eating lobster. There is also a bar next door to get a cocktail.

Don’t miss this when you are in Booth Bay. You select your live lobster. It comes with a variety of side choices. The tables are outside and the view of the harbor is picturesque. I ate there at sunset and took at least 50 photos...More

Ate here twice as the ambience was fun no frills and delicious. Enjoyed a large lobster roll while watching in stunned amazement as a gentleman in a nearby table devoured a 4 pound fresh lobster.

The Boothbay Lobster Wharf has plenty of indoor or outdoor seating overlooking the harbor. You order at the counter and when they call your number you pick up your food. The menu is extensive...lobster, lobster rolls, shrimp, scallops, clams, etc. The food is cooked perfectly!

Stopped in for lunch to find a limited and pricey menu. The service was OK but this experience was nothing special.

Management changed two years ago and we've eaten their both years. Lobster doesn't change because management does. The food is just as good as before.

They should be open by then. Boothbay Harbor is a great place for seafood restaurants. You don't need to go fancy. We'll be there again for the tall ships and the fireworks in July. Can't wait for that lobster. Have a... More
