At Harborside Tavern we believe delicious is in the details.

So we like to think we’ve considered all of them.
Food’s better when it’s crafted.
When it’s curated.
But that doesn’t mean it should be complicated.
Simple dishes can be simply delicious.
And we focus our attention on the small things knowing
they’ll add up to one well-considered food experience.

But that level of detail doesn’t exist solely in the kitchen.
Look around. Everything’s got a story.
Growing up we had a big tree in the backyard.
When it fell, we made our tables out of it.
We hung the pallets on the walls.
Pulled every nail.
Had a friend hand-make our sign.
Metal-cut every letter.

Our cocktails are as crafted as our chef’s plates.
And her mom makes the desserts because moms make the best desserts.
Family recipes are important in Maine. Family’s important.

Here at Harborside Tavern, our house is your house.
We want this place to feel like home.
Comfy. Cozy. Natural.
Because to us, it is.
Our heart’s in Boothbay Harbor.
We’ve been here for generations.
Great Grandad even helped build the footbridge.
And now we’re proud to feed the happy folks who cross it.

Around here, every little detail has its own story.
So stop by for a bite and take in a few of ours.
