Weekend getaway with the girls and we all agreed on one thing. This place had the best lobster roll we had ever had. Ten and a half ounces of fresh lobster in a grilled roll. We're Bostonians and have been eating lobster our whole lives, but this by far was the best.

Eating out on dock with great view of harbor. Ordered two orders of steamed clams, using $15 Restaurant.com coupon on $40 bill - was told good at Restaurant only. Thats okay except nowhere is there a sign indicating "restaurant:. They have two areas for ordering - one for lobster, clams, mussels & corn - another for sandwiches, chowder, fish &... More

We were originally going to Lobster Dock but met people returning and said it was too busy. I ordered the small lobster with a baked potato. It took a while for me to pick it up but it was very good. My husband ordered the fried shrimp but thought they would be much bigger. They had a good band playing... More

Enjoy a great view of Boothbay Harbor while they cook your fresh seafood meal - a great stop just a bit away from the bustle of the downtown. Always nice options on the menu.

Ordered twin lobsters & was not disappointed - they were sweet & tasty. It came with 2 sides - I had the baked potato & side salad. For $1.95, I also got the corn on the cob, which was sweet & succulent! Best Maine lobster experience ever! Go try it - you won't regret it!!!

This is how a clam shack should be! Lots of food options (fried seafood, steamers, and even options for the non-seafood crowd), all were fantastic! Nice outdoor seating with fun bands playing. Great fully stocked bar with happy hour. My favorite was the Buck a Shuck. $1 each of the freshest oysters I ever ate. Couldn't get enough!

Great lobster rolls and whole steamed lobsters. Delicious and super fresh. Went twice during our stay. No frills but none needed!

If you want small portions, formerly frozen seafood, slimy scallops, and terrible onion rings this is the place to go. I paid $29 for the fishermans platter and it was the worst dinner I've ever had while visiting Maine. Here's hoping my family and I do not get sick from eating this terrible food. Please save your money and go... More

Nice spot...the best in the Harbor to watch the boat traffic and the daily "catch" brought in. If you don't know about lobstering, this is the place to learn! Great owners, hands-on people with wonderful humor. Good food, a little pricey compared to some places, but you do sit right over the water. Talk about an ocean view! Bar has... More

Great place to grab food to go or eat there. You can also see the steps involved in handling lobsters. If you want lobster this is the place to go. They do have tons of other choices seafood or not and everything is made fresh and to order right there.
