At our beautiful land's end, you can enjoy excellent small harbor services, dining, and provisioning.
Our somewhat rickety but cleanly swept general store has steaming coffee and hot chocolate, and local Clark Island donuts all year plus a fair selection of delicious local pies, cakes, tarts, cheeses, wines, groceries, fresh vegetables and fruit, hand cut meats, local fish and lobsters, beers and spirits. Our seasonal deli offers hot meals, pizza, and hot breakfast sandwiches and features Linda Bean's Perfect Maine® Lobster Roll.
To-your-door delivery service locally is available year-round for a $5.00 trip charge.
Rental moorings are available to Port Clyde visitors, tailored to your boat size and swing room needs. Call Marine Services at 207-372-6543. We monitor Channel 9.
Marine Services crew will cheerfully dispose of your boat trash, get your laundry and dry cleaning expedited (in by 10:30 AM and returned by noon next day), and provision your boat with your list from the Port Clyde General Store, which is the only state licensed full spirits liquor store for 20 miles. We will transport you and your family and guests in our water launch as often as you wish while in port and even bring hot meals to your boat from the deli, including steamed lobsters with melted butter. Being on our mooring brings many dividends in service!
THE DIP NET RESTAURANT on the wharf is open everyday from May 31 through Columbus Day in mid October from 11:30 AM until 9:00 PM with full outdoor bar and table service. Also 16 seats inside. Meals that are informal, fun, and tasty, specializing in perfectly friend clams, shrimp and oysters, as well as hot toasted lobster rolls, steamed lobster dinners and specialties, and fresh raw Maine oysters and clams. Years of good food reputation.
Children may meet one or more of our local lobstermen at 6:00 PM many nights during the summer and fall. They bring their dripping crates of lobsters in for the DIP NET and are happy to stop to show children their catch and answer questions about, crabs, urchins, snortwrinkles and other live creatures of the sea. Photographs by parents of their children with the fishermen are permitted.
In downtown Port Clyde you can find excellent wine choices, local microbrews, and a full line of your favorite cocktail hour beverages, either to take back to the boat from the store or to order on the wharf at the Dip Net. Dinghy in or let us transport you in the comfort of "The Pilgrim," our 21 Flanders Bay launch service. Sunset evenings on the wharf can a lifetime memory of the best of Maine.
