Lobster Sushi Roll
steamed lobster, asparagus, avocado, topping crab meat mixed tempura flakes, masago, spicy mayo
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.
Great food and waitress and host was extremely accommodating for our family of 5 - baby and two toddlers. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our meal.
Very good setting for a casual meal….waitstaff attentive, food done to perfection- I had filet mignon …. Wife had chicken piccata which she shared and very flavorful….a bit noisy but view of harbor makes up for it! Recommend this restaurant as our experience overall was very good!
Our table was ready, as soon as we got there. The service was fantastic, as was the food. The food arrived just at the right time, and it was cooked perfectly. One of the best Lobster dishes ever. Waiter was very polite and very professional, with a wonderful personality.
These guys have done an incredible job. Excellent variety, and everything we had (in 3 separate meals on vacation) was delicious. We can’t wait to come back!
First time dining at the 1801. We were seated promptly upon arrival and April was very friendly and on top everything the whole evening. The restaurant was on the loud side and very busy but gave most customers a very nice view of the harbor. I had the Tuna Tartar for an appetizer and it was delicious. My wife had the Ribeye, she said it was chewy but had a good flavor. Her sides were very very good. I had the Scallops Risotto and I really enjoyed it. We will most definitely dine there again on future trips to the Boothbay Region!
Special thanks to April!
Very friendly caring staff. Food was delicious. We day tripped from Portland area & will definitely be back.
Everything from apps, entrees desserts and craft cocktails just outstanding. High marks on sushi as well. Service was terrific too !! Best meal in Boothbay and have been visiting for over 20 years.
Always a great spot. Service is excellent and food is fresh and delicious
Had a family dinner here. It was great to be on the water in boothbay. Felt the prices were steep for the food. My pasta was undercooked and so was some else’s in our group.
Totally fantastic food! The service, ambiance and owners are very attentive! The food is beyond excellent!! We will back!
April, our server was the best! Food and drinks were excellent. My new favorite!!
Food was mediocre. They were out of lobster bisque. No lobster rolls. Noisy. No bread brought to the table.
First if you live in a city you will have already experience high price entrees…the ambiance doesn’t warrant the prices nor does the food… it’s so loud I was getting a headache… it’s a must skip in booth bay…
No taste in the sushi… and the Calamari app portion was so tiny…
Husband said steak was good but not $40 worth.. and yes we have spent up to $60 + on steaks. You almost feel you are getting ripped off as a tourist in BB.
Great food, but the portions were so small for the price point. Recommend the Avocado dream appetizer and the sea scallop risotto.
Outstanding branzino with Brussel sprouts. Friendly staff. We recommend.
My wife's salmon was great, but the vegetables were weirdly acidic and the sticky rice was like leather. My sushi was good. The dessert was good. I had an excellent daiquiri, but that was only after a number of other options were ruled out due to lack of ingredients or poor quality ingredients. The bartender was very smart and skilled, working with a mediocre bar. Our meal service was exemplary.
Good was good but somewhat pricey for the portions served. Nice location.
We had the most amazing lobster and crab cakes, plus the sushi was the best! We had the lobster sushi roll and the crazy ocean roll. So good!!
Delicious fresh food and creative cocktails.
Owners go out of their way to ensure you are completely satisfied.
A menu to satisfy all from light bites and sushi to full entrees.
Will definitely return!
Great food. Service was good. Pricey but worth it
My wife and I decided to go to Harborside because it was the only Open Table restaurant listed for downtown Boothbay Harbor. We found the menu short for regular seafood entrees. We assume this was because half the menu was devoted to sushi type meals. The highlight of our meal was the service which was outstanding.
Whole lobster was amazing!! Great service and all food was amazing
Very friendly staff. Avocado and crab appetizer was excellent.we will return.
Drinks and food were excellent. I was there before peak season so the sushi and fish of the day weren't available which was a little disappointing but overall the staff and atmosphere were great.
