Boat House Grille in Essex Great for Lunch

We hadn’t been to the Boat House Grille in Essex for a while so we stopped by for lunch recently. We were not disappointed! Friendly service, relaxing atmosphere, delicious food, varied menu, creative drinks all added up to another wonderful dining experience. Thanks to our server Hannah for being so attentive and efficient.

Salty Maine Lobstermen

Our first stop in the Bar Harbor Photo Tour was to a working waterfront jam packed with lobster gear, fog and character. Just my luck that we’d be stopping at a sight so familiar to me, but it was unique for many of the others on the trip. As they were ohhhing and ahhing over their opportunities to chat with real lobstermen, I was standing along the sidelines observing. The tour guide came over to stage whisper that SOMETIMES these lobstermen can get very salty in the local bars especially in the off season. Is that so????? HAHAHA….. as much as the location may change, the character does not. And I am grateful for that.
