Sat outdoors on the pier literally 6 feet from where they off-load the lobster boats, watched the whole process from a front row seat and had a delicious meal and cold local brews. Plus we saw the swing drawbridge which is pretty cool because there aren't many of those left!

We ate here on 2 consecutive evenings in August 2016. On both occasions the restaurant was about half full but the speed of service was lacking. On our first night our appetisers took 40 mins to arrive, followed 5 mins later by the entrees. On the second ( when we didn't order an appetiser) the entrees took an hour. On neither occasion were the waiting staff apologetic. The food was OK but not good enough to warrant another evening of the same - so we took our custom elsewhere on our 3rd night.

I have eaten at Robinson's Wharf 2-3 times in the past few years.
I love the location and the food but they are expensive but every restaurant in town is expensive. Expect to wait 1 hour before you receive your food and look out for hungry seagulls I suggest that the bar shut people off from drinking before they have to call them a cab as they are too drunk to drive..

Sorry Robinson's Wharf, but we left today very disappointed after having a good experience last year. There was a general lack of caring from the staff that turned us off. Yes, the beer was cold and the haddock sandwich was OK, but the fries that we paid $2 extra for, were warm at best and not worth a dime extra. As to the bowl of clam chowder we had, it's best to just call it chowder. While the flavor was good, we found only a small sliver of a clam. We watched as one server tried to carry 3 draft beers to an outside table, and in her attempt she spilled quite a bit on a nearby bar stool. She looked at it and kind of shrugged her shoulders. The bartender also noted it when I pointed it out to a fellow customer, but did nothing. To top it off, another server came over & I thought she was going to sit down so I brought the wet stool to her attention. She too shrugged it off, chatted with the customers and walked away. We will be here for another 2 weeks in Boothbay Harbor, but will not go back to Robinson's Wharf. It's a shame attitudes & quality of the food has changed so much in a year.

This feels like a very cool locals spot. It's a great location and the food is very good. It's a casual spot right on the water. I had the 1-1/2 pound lobster and it only cost $23.00. The table also had a steak and cheese and NY Strip which were great. Ally was our server and she was amazing.
