We enjoyed the view of marine craft while imbibing our Booth Bay IPA brew craft with a gentle breeze cooling the restaurant. The bartender was well informed and made everyone feel welcomed.

Excellent oysters and some of the best clam chowder we've had anywhere. The server was very friendly and attentive too.

We started out our meal with a dozen "select" Glidden Point oysters from the nearby Damariscotta River. These were so plump and briny all they needed was a couple of drops of lemon juice to round them out. These were perfectly shucked too, all you...More
