Wow wow wow, This has been very helpful, I think y'all have been able to really give me plenty of suggestions that are right up my alley, I am really looking forward to this trip, with my lovely soon to be bride, and also my vacation from the kitchen to the dining room (or picnic table overlooking the water.

Thanks for the input, I know tourist are inevitable, as I too am going to be a tourist, I just want to make sure that I am not going someplace that people just go to because its there and it's "cute." Not that I am trying to avoid cute, I just want to make sure I am hitting the heart and soul of the Maine dining experience.

So is this shaw's overly touristy? I mean I definitely want to hit up some lighthouses, so that is a draw, but I am really tryin to avoid the cheesy stuff. Again I know it is summer in Maine and tis the season. Also we are going to be making a day trip to Acadia, any suggestions in that area???

right on, both places look great, now what about in boothbay? is pretty much everything going to be a tourist trap???? Also when it comes too pies, is watermans also the place to go or are there others to get my blueberry and rhubarb fix. we are slightly obsessed with pies and have a favorite pie place in Custer, SD. But wouldn't mind giving it some competition since we are going to be Maine!

My soon to be wife and I are heading to coastal Maine (Boothbay Harbor) for our honey moon, and I am really looking for the best food across the entire spectrum. From roadside lobster rolls on our drive up from Boston to elegant fine dining meals, I would love to hear any and all suggestions. The more authentic, local, and less touristy the better, and I do realize that this maybe tougher in a touristy Boothbay. As a working chef in Chicago, I am really looking forward eating my way through New England!!!!
