Whether you need more cereal for your house, or a quick bite Goldthwaite's is a great stop. They have fantastic food. In the morning they have delicious muffins, and you can't beat their lobster rolls later in the day! There are picnic tables out back to sit and enjoy the view while you grab a relaxing bite.

The lobster was tender and fresh. The bun was buttered and crisp. The view was outstanding. My wife had the salmon on a salad and said it was perfect.

Had dinner on a lovely August Friday evening. Interesting, eclectic fish/seafood menu. Order and pick up at counter. Counter service was pleasant. You get one of those square buzzy devices to let you know your order is ready. Didn't take too long on a crowded Friday in August. I ordered salmon tacos with a dill sauce - interesting and tasty....

Enjoyed our dinner at Goldwaithe's. Friendly and nice staff. Great view our back. My son is gluten free and they still had options for him to choose from. He would get a hamburger on a gluten free bun. My daughters got fish and chips and fried shrimp. I got lobster tacos. My niece and nephew got fried shrimp and pizza.... More

We tried Goldthwaite's for the first time this past weekend. I got the salmon BLT and my wife got a lobster roll. My sandwich was fine, but messy. My wife's lobster roll was okay. We had to ask for some mayonnaise since there wasn't any in the lobster. One disappointment was no consumption of alcohol allowed. The high point was... More

Hadn't been here in 40 years. Maybe the name changed. It was a record heat day. Index over 100. But, here there was a nice breeze and it was comfortable at the covered picnic tables. I just had a fried clam roll which was delicious. A bit skimpy and a bit pricy but very good and fresh. Lobsters, lobster rolls... More

Friendly people, good food, but best of all is sitting out back on the picnic tables to enjoy the view of Saco Bay. The fish and chips is great, and their home made onion rings are unbelievable!

We've been coming here for over a decade. The lobster rolls are always excellent and the "Fancy Chowder" is among the best clam chowder you will find anywhere. There a few tables on the back porch but take your food outside and enjoy the view of the ocean and sailboats / Wood Island Lighthouse from one of the many nice... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the food and view. Customers frequently tell us our chowder is the best they have ever had. We do in fact have a bathroom that is available for our dining patrons. Because we are in the center of the village and there's so much traffic through... More
