The Salty Stag

Legendary Good Fun 

Eat, Drink & Be Merry

At The Salty Stag, we celebrate the spirit that animates the legend, assembling to feast and toast: to life, to love, and to the pursuit of joyfulness.

Whether sharing a farm table breakfast before a day on the water, a hand crafted cocktail, brew or wine the color of the sunset, or the familiar joy of a wedding party convened around the bar, our guests are invited to enjoy. The Salty Stag is the welcoming heart and hearth of the Inn—a cheerful gathering place, drenched in sunshine by day and ambered low-light by night.  It is here that our guests convene for delicious sustenance and pleasant whistle wetting.  Whether a hearty breakfast before a day on the water or a hand-crafted nightcap – and everything in between – the Stag is relaxed, fun, and pleasing.  Always.

Larger parties are limited to 8 guests. For parties of 9 or more guests, we invite you to use our private dining room. Please call 207-633-4152.

The Salty Stag is family friendly with a casual dress code.

Breakfast is served daily from 8am to 11am. Our all day menu is available until 8pm Sunday-Thursday and until 9pm Friday and Saturday. 

Join us for Sunday Brunch! Wind down the weekend with your favorite breakfast or lunch fare paired with a delightful mimosa or bloody mary. Breakfast items are available until 11am.

The Myth, The Legend.

Legend has it that a magnificent stag, heeding heart’s desire, once swam the breadth of Boothbay Harbor.  It was here on Spruce Point that he found love with a perfect companion, joyfully making these woods their eternal place of refuge and delight. 

Some say the patient and the worthy still catch fleeting glimpses of the legendary stag of Spruce Point —his fur coat still streaked with salt, an enduring reminder to follow one’s heart and rejoice.
