Great lobster tacos and surprisingly good sushi. Nice views of the water and super speedy staff. Good energy.
The shrimp/crab appetizer was amazing and the salmon was very good.
We love this place ! Good delicious !! Terrific people/service great attitude ! It is our new “regular” place ! Cannot wait to go again. Black bean tacos with shrimp excellent ! Halibut special amazing for dinner !
Food and service was great
The food was great. Some of the best sushi we’ve had. My husband had the lamb chops and they were grilled just right. Will definitely return.
They went out of their way to accommodate us! We had an unusual situation with seven people coming in for appetizers and drinks and only about 45 minutes to do it. I was able to make a reservation and give our order ahead of time so we could relax and enjoy our time. Everyone was gracious, the food was delicious, yummy drinks and exceptional service. Thanks!
Great food and friendly service
We had a good experience here! Our server was great and the food was pretty good! Took a star off for the menu items that were not available that we asked for but what we did try was all very good. We had a shrimp tempura roll, whole lobster, lobster fettuccine and the filet mignon. Would go back!
Excellent Caesar and Ossobucco and risotto. A very pleasant experience and waitstaff. Inside could use a little updating.
Had reservations for many days. We were looking forward to Sushi. We were seated and handed menus that included Sushi. When it was time to order we were told Sushi was not available. We should have been told either before or immediately upon arrival. Very disappointing.....
Very good restaurant. Food was excellent. Only issue was lack of social distancing and lack of masks.
Service was fantastic! Food was amazing!
Great varied menus from sushi to seafood and land based foods also. Nicely prepared and super service
Food was excellent
Nice setting on the waterfront of Boothbay Harbor for lunch.
The lobster rolls were fresh and falvorful.
$12 cup of chowder had amazing taste but was luke warm , I got the snapper .. was over cooked (rubbery) and mother got the filet which had good flavor but was not very hot .
We LOVE this new place. The salmon lovers sushi is my favorite thing I’ve eaten all summer in BBH. There is so much salmon, not too much rice. I’m allergic to shellfish so I haven’t tried a lot of the other dishes but they also look great. Also we had the same great waitress both times we went here.
Wonderful chef/owner who has managed to find enough help to continue to have decent service. From sushi to salmon and a salad, all four of us were more than pleased with our meals. It was a warmer than normal Boothbay evening so I found a frozen cocktail called a Long Hot Summer. I highly recommend it.
It was awful! We went specifically for sushi, having heard great reviews. Sushi chef was out so we had to order from the menu. 1 shared app, 1 drink, 1 salad, 1 entree each came to $180. Food was mediocre at best. Sorry, but never again.
Sea Bass was way overcooked and very thin and dry. Filet overcooked and cold. Expensive for food that wasn't good.
Great food and service. All the wait staff were very welcoming. We had a wonderful time.
Great food great service! Highly recommend . We loved it all
Fantastic food and cocktails! Welcoming atmosphere!!!
Not great food at all soups were awful. Salad fair. They tried to make it up by giving us a desert. Flour free chocolate cake. That was actually really good. But I’m not a dessert eater. I wanted a good meal. Unfortunately they missed the ball. Sorry
Every dish was outstanding- run by real restauranteurs. Highly recommend.
Wonderful food and great service
Very good food and service. Attentive wait staff.
Wonderful food. A bit crowded. Great service.
Very disappointed in service. We had to ask for utensils. No bread offered. The 3 of us had dinner. My husband and I finished dinner and asked for boxes and our daughter’s hamburger wasn’t even brought to table yet.The food was good. Sushi menu not available as that chef had day off.
Food was OK. Wine was pretty bad (we had 3 different types) and it took about 35 minutes for food and 30 minutes for dessert. They're probably still recovering from COVID in lots of ways but it wasn't what we hoped for from reading the reviews.
Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Highly recommended.
Food is absolutely fantastic. Our group had everything from eggplant to sushi.
Hidden gem just off of the Footbridge in Boothbay Harbor.
The Harborside 1901 does not disappoint!! The lobster sushi was amazing!! It’s the best sushi I have ever had. There’s a good wine list and craft cocktails too. The service is very good. It’s a fun spot.
Great location and the food was outstanding! Had the lobster crab cake and lobster fettuccini. Delicious.
The lobster bisque was not as expected. A dark, turmeric color, not pale pink, with very little lobster. The salad was yummy. I got the watermelon, strawberry & fig topped with the perfectly cooked piece of salmon.
Fantastic dinner! Will return again to get the seafood tower.
Front desk great. Service subpar. Food better 1 minute away. Would avoid
The sushi was really fresh and so good. We had reservations so we were seated right away. Service was great as was everything we ordered. I would defiantly go again.
Crab lobster cakes were mostly filler. Clam chowder was decent but bacon overpowered clams. Oyster Rockefeller was a standout.
