Being from Massachusetts Happy Hour does not exist at all (of course we here know of its existence). I went in to Kaler's one afternoon around July 4th with my father. The service was great, and the bartender (I'm kicking myself for forgetting his name) was awesome. I was just drinking beer, but my father wanted to explore the world... More

My wife and I recently took a trip to Boothbay. We had eaten at Kaler's about 8 years ago and we thought it was great. On this trip we found it to be as good as before. I had fried clams and they were terrific. Not greasy at all. The service was very good and the prices are very reasonable.... More

Simple down home decor. Great service. Seating inside or outside. One of the best values in town for a lobster dinner. I'm a summer local and go back here again and again.

We have eaten here a few times and it is consistently good. The wait staff is efficient and friendly. I usually order the fried shrimp which is plentiful and cooked just right.

We went here after the whale watching cruise. The kids enjoyed going down to check out the lobster tank on the dock. The food was ok, nothing exceptional, but good enough for the price.

We very much enjoyed our visit here. We found the service was friendly and efficient and the food very good quality. My lobster pie was full of big chunks of freshly cooked lobster and my husband's haddock dish was lovely.

This restaurant has a great fun atmosphere, cool decorations (ask about the shovel hanging on the wall by the bar) and the food was pretty darn good too! Fried oysters and Fried scallops were prepared well and served in a timely manner. Reasonably priced.

Kalers is a great place to experience. It is older but very clean and friendly. The food here is very good, the best clams I've ever had! Not greasy, over cooked or over battered. Also got fish tacos and they were good. The corn and lobster chowder is a must try! This place is great, but seasonal so get there... More
