Description: Locally caught lobster is our specialty. Several hundred pounds are stored in our sea water tank. You may select your own from the tank and watch as they are prepared for cooking in our large outdoor pots. We have all sizes of the tasty shellfish, from one to four pounds. To those new to lobster, we will gladly assist on how to best eat them and explain the differences between hard and soft shell. The Outdoor Patio at The Lobster Dock The flavor of Maine is further captured in our other offerings. Stews and chowders are prepared daily from only the freshest ingredients. The shrimp and scallops we use are caught in the waters of the Boothbay Region. Clams are also supplied by local diggers most every day. Our mussels are grown on a salt water farm in Tenants Harbor. Fish caught in the North Atlantic are supplied to us from Boothbay Fish Dealers. We accept only the freshest available. It is not unusual for us to refuse deliveries that do not meet our quality standards.

Having read all the reviews this was a meal we were looking forward to having. Perhaps the fact it was raining hard didn't help - everyone was soggy! Nice menu, queued at the window and order food and drinks - the food brought to you. Nice lobster based dishes. Enjoyed the fried artichoke hearts. Fast service and blueberry pie and ice cream was excellent. Would have loved the view but... the rain stopped that.

My wife and I had dinner one evening at the Lobster Dock and I must say I was underwhelmed. For an area so rich in great seafood, I was very disappointed. We each got a 1-1/2 pound lobster and steamers. There was very little food for the money we spent. And the servers were not that helpful. We asked one of them for a napkin and he pointed and said, "They're over there". We spent $85 on the meal and left hungry. There are many places to go for a great dinner in the area. The Lobster Dock is not one of them.

My car club went there as a group, and Mitch, the owner, and his staff made it a most enjoyable dinner. Mitch was flexible enough to accommodate some unanticipated changes in our group menu, and we all had a great time. Good service, great food at a good price in a great harbor side venue- it would be hard to get much better!

Great vibes here. The crab rolls were the best I had this trip. My husband had the lobster roll. Nice family run business. Excellent views of the bay.

We visit here every year and always enjoy the view and the food. Staff is friendly. This is a lobster/crab shack so nothing is fancy. We enjoy the crab cakes and the lobster rolls as well as the onion rings. Always good and consistent year to year. The side coleslaw is yummy and crunchy; never had it soggy.
It's fun to eat on the deck and watch the daily activities going on in the harbor.
They have indoor seating for rainy or cold days.
Enjoy every season!
