Spent a week in Rockland and chose to eat here every night but one. Different meal every day, except we had clam chowder with every meal. Fantastic view of the bay from every seat in the resturant, excellent service, and outstanding food.

Archer’s on the Pier is located directly on Rockland’s pristine waterfront. Come enjoy an innovative and tasty menu for lunch and dinner created with the best sustainable seafood and local produce. If you stop in on Sunday, we offer a light fare for brunch while you enjoy Jazz playing softly in the background. Sit out on our large deck and watch the windjammers drift by as you relish the fresh sea air. You will also notice the ferry that transports locals and visitors to and from Vinalhaven and North Haven from Rockland’s port.
