Dolphin Marina and Restaurant
Located at the tip of Harpswell, on the waters edge of picturesque Potts Harbor, Dolphin Marina and Restaurant has been a favorite destination for boaters and inlanders since it opened in 1966. Originally started by Malcolm and Jean Saxton, who made the restaurant famous with their homemade food, featuring secret recipes for fish chowder, lobster stew and blueberry muffins, continue to feature Maine lobsters, local fresh seafood and hand cut steaks. Presently, their son, Bill and wife Mimi as stewards of this Maine jewel are in the process of a major refit of their facility, with new marina infrastructures, including new floats, wharf and fuel system and gangway.Dolphin Marina is a premier destination for transient and seasonal boaters up to 250 feet with brand new facilities that offer all the amenities transients have asked for over the years: ice, water, provisions, showers, restrooms, laundry, boaters lounge, weather center, chandlery, comfortable deck and patio, slips and moorings, complete dock service, WiFi and 30A, 50A and 100A shore power.
