We stopped at Kaler's after a puffin cruise. I ordered the fried haddock- it was very good, though it did seem like I got more fries than fish. However, I can't complain because it was perfectly portioned and I didn't need a doggy bag. Blueberry...More

We recently had an early meal here and it was great! Fried shrimp, baked beans and broccoli were my choice. Cooked perfectly and plentiful. It was happy hour so we enjoyed draft beers at a discount too! Highly recommend this restaurant!

Walked in and ordered two south of Maine style lobster rolls to-go; perfectly cooked & seasoned lobster, crunchy but light bun, and just the right amount of warm butter. Best lobster roll I had in Boothbar Harbor for a really good price.

Went for a light dinner and a beer after a huge late lunch in Freeport. Enjoyed the lobster roll and the salads we ordered. Not fancy but good for a casual bite.
