Our friends had said that the bisque was a reason to go to the Tugboat. We all had lobster bisque and really liked it. People liked the other things they had: steamers, mussels, and sandwiches.

The dining room was closed on Wednesday noon, but the outdoor area was open. So I don't know that much about the restaurant itself, but our service was very good.

We had great food, service, scenery, and atmosphere. People love to sit, and chat, and find out where others are from.

Dinner for myself, husband and two daughters. Service was great and food was very good. Good variety of options as one daughter does not like seafood.

We have been to BoothBay many times and never went to Tugboat. We decided to finally try it out and were pleasantly surprised. Food was well prepared and prices were reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area. It's a bit off the beaten path, but highly recommend a stop here. We will be back.

The deck overlooking the bay is a great place to enjoy well prepared classic seafood or steak. No frills, just good food and a well made cocktail in a great setting.
