On the frigid monday or tueday night that we stayed in Rockland, finding Archer's open was such a relief! We enjoyed a nice seafood dinner next to a gas-log stove which quelled the low temps. The staff was friendly and very accommodating.

One of my favorites in Rockland! Been there many times and will come again. Butter poached lobster, if pricey is to die for. Everything else is fresh and delicious. Great drinks,beautiful and relaxing location. Especially for sunsets. Highly recommend.

Lunch at the pier was delightful. Sandwiches, tacos, quesadillas, and stew were all good as was the service. Nice setting, too.

Description
Archer’s on the Pier is located directly on Rockland’s pristine waterfront. Come enjoy an innovative and tasty menu for lunch and dinner created with the best sustainable seafood and local produce. If you stop in on Sunday, we offer a light fare for brunch while you enjoy Jazz playing softly in the background. Sit out on our large deck and watch the windjammers drift by as you relish the fresh sea air. You will also notice the ferry that transports locals and visitors to and from Vinalhaven and North Haven from Rockland’s port.
