The Watershed Tavern at the Boothbay Craft Brewery in Boothbay Maine was a revelation. I've been coming to Boothbay since wartime, that's WWII and while the take-out lobsters, clams, lobster rolls and chicken nuggets (for the grands) are terrific to eat at home, we've never eaten out at a dazzling place. Today our Gang of 12 of our kids and grands decided to try this place and I went with some hesitation.
The reception and seating was immediate, the orders were taken after 20 minutes, the flights of beer arrived after 40 minutes and the food much much later. But it was well worth the wait; I had ordered the Devil's Thumbprint, essentially fish 'n chips and it was clearly the very best huuuuge pieces of haddock with the very best aioli and very best fries I've had in eons - and the coleslaw was close to the very best.
Our bill for 12, before the imposed tip, was $289.73, thus $48.28 a couple.
Go? So if you want to have real Yankee food rather than the Parisian imitation, you cannot do better than at this seemingly unimpressive joint.
