I took my family of six to the 8:00 show recently and it was great. It is on my to do list every time I'm in Bar Harbor. It's always fresh and creative. Make reservations in advance. It is a fun way to end the day.

Always a fun night, and the actors really engage the audience from start to finish. The 8:00 show is family friendly and they seem to have no trouble keeping it clean, but still funny! No pressure to order a bunch of menu items, but available if you so choose.

We went to the 8pm family friendly performance. Great time, very entertaining. Their signature drinks did not appeal to us, but their bar seems stocked with other options.

Had so much fun and laughs at the 8:00 family show that we stayed for the 10:00 show for mature audiences. It did not disappoint. Professional improv artists from all over the U.S. providing a very amusing professional performance. I'd go again if I'm ever in Bar Harbor in the future.

We attended the 8 o'clock show with our two teenaged daughters. We couldn't stop laughing all night! The actors are great and the bar service is good. I recommend calling ahead for a reservation to be sure you have a table. It is well worth the visit.

We were featured that night. My daughter's friend volunteered to tell the story of how she and her boyfriend met. The cast members took notes and then improvisationally performed her story. It was outrageously funny. Highly recommend.

We went to the 8:00 show, which was Funny and interactive. We laughed through out the show. The bits were creative and the crew were talented at thinking/acting quickly.

We had a great night at the 8 o'clock family show! The cast was fabulous and the service was excellent. The cast was talented, creative and hilarious. The audience participation made the show even better! I would highly recommend this theatre for a family night out! We will definitely come back next time we are in bar harbor!

I was recently in Bar Harbor with my 11 yr old twins. Full day in Acadia, popovers at Jordan Pond House capped off by a really funny evening at ImprovAcadia. Really very funny with clever and smiling actors. So much fun to see your kids laugh out loud like that!! Highly recommended.

Party of 20 for a wedding group and everyone left with a smile on their face! 10pm show. The four actors had some great chemistry. We've been in Bar Harbor for a week now and have reminisced on this experience every day. Highly recommend. Call ahead. Get there early.
