I used to take my family and friends to "The Basin" in the boat, from Portland, to spend an afternoon swimming. When we were finished we would go to Holbrook's to finish our day with a wonderful meal on the dock before motoring home. The...More

Beautiful location. Under new management, so expected an improvement from last year. We ordered haddock dinners and a salad. The salad was large and filled with vegetables. Overall very good. The fish, however, was fried in a very heavy batter, with only a small piece...More

This little gem did not disappoint. The clams were fresh and perfect the burger great. The fries were hot and crispy. Just what I expected to spend. Not to mention the view! Sitting on top of the ocean! You can arrive by boat or car!

Beautiful spot at the end of the world in Cundy's Harbor. On a beautiful day the place can't be beat. On a dreary day they may not open at all. The best haddock sandwich around mid coast Maine IMO. The onion rings are usually exceptional...More

Had the fish tacos and they were great! Very fresh. My wife had the BLT which was outstanding. Such an unlikely place for a great BLT. The view is excellent but service was somewhat slow and prices somewhat high but then there the view and...More

Holbrooks is so much fun and I love going. At Holbrooks they have a dock so you can get there by boat and that is the way I always go to Holbrooks. They are always great at taking orders so even when there are ten...More
