For a wonderful price in the height of the summer in Bar Harbor, we had a perfectly sized room for two people, with a bathroom that was a decent size for being a bed and breakfast. The owner couldn't have been any nicer, and the breakfast (included in the price) was possibly the best continental breakfast I've ever had. You... More

Stayed in Room #1 during a 3-day stay in Bar Harbor and couldn't have been happier with the place. Tom is a friendly and gracious host who loves to share stories and information. The staff at the inn were just the nicest people you could ever meet. The food was delicious and filling. Would love to go back every year... More

This is a rather unique place. I went during 4th of July and it was extremely affordable. The room was extremely clean and was really quiet. I am a light sleeper and even with a musician playing at the Pub part of this I never heard a thing. This probably wouldn't be very accommodating for large families as it is... More

A group of us stayed at the Black Friar Inn recently to celebrate a friends birthday. It was a wonderful location in the heart of Bar Harbour. The location is great, just off the really busy area, but still in the downtown with a Hannaford grocery store across the street behind us (Cottage St), along which you will find many... More

We made reservations for this place. It was a late dinner but worth the wait. The chef is amazing and uses fresh ingredients to create amazing dishes. Always order the specials. The blueberry butter for the rolls was enough to bring me back. The prices were inexpensive for the food you get. Wonderful place.

We went to Bar Harbor for our 25th Wedding anniversary, last full week in June. From a recommendation of another friend we stayed at the Black Friar Inn. It's located in a perfect spot, you can walk anywhere in town within minutes, yet you are off the "beaten" path so you don't hear so many people. Tom and staff are... More

We had a fantastic stay. The location is great, the interior is done with so much heart and ideas and the staff is friendly and welcoming. It is the perfect place for a stay in Bar Harbor. The only thing that could make the inn better would be an outside area for breakfast and dinner or beers.

A great start to our New England Vacation. My wife and I stayed here for the first 3 days of our 1 week vacation and we definitely pick a great place to start. It was close to everything. Tom and his staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The food was great.. The pub... More

Great place. The Friar is my favorite place in Bar Harbor, it is located close to downtown, has parking and the rooms are unique and cozy. The Innkeeper is great and the best feature is the breakfast, hearty Maine food, just the ideal meal to start your day. Best of all, it is very affordable and has a family kind... More

My wife and I first came to Black Friars Inn in September 2013 for food and drinks and loved it straight away - we stayed all evening. The Inn itself, the look and feel of the place was instantly welcoming and homely (not just because I'm from London, England). The food was top notch, Don is a wizard in the... More
