Sorry Bar Harbor, but I really don't like it when restaurants do this. Your food is "generously" priced, though tasty, but wanting us to pay for the tap water (you put on the table before we saw the menu) and wanting a fee for the "bread basket" (even with mussels!) was just too much. You have a beautiful room and... More

This is, by far, the best restaurant in Ketchikan. Everything is made from scratch with fabulous ingredients. There is also a very nice wine list. I would highly recommend eating here. But, make a reservation to be sure you get a table. It is a small restaurant, and if the weather is not conducive to eating outside, there is limited... More

It can be difficult to get reservations at the restaurant during the summer. Must call at least a day ahead to get seat. food and service are excellent. the view from the outside seating is of the harbor boats. Cammie, the owner, made of point of visiting with us during our stay. She is a very special person. Her staff... More

Some local friends picked Bar Harbor Restaurant, we couldn't have been more impressed! The steamed clam appetizer was wonderful and full of flavor, the white king salmon special was the best salmon I had ever had (we've eaten a lot of salmon) and our friends had their favorite pasta dishes which they had raved about. We will definitely add an... More

My husband and I were here fishing and got a reservation at Bar Harbor. Calamari appetizer was great so was the malbec wine. We both had pasta which was fine I liked the crab pesto but it was a creamy pesto something I'd not had before.

Great food. Had the red snapper special. Good service. Wine list is typical for the area and not much to choose from by the glass.

Four of us had dinner here and all agreed it was absolutely fabulous - best in town! We also felt that it was some of the best fish we ever had! We sat outside looking over looking the harbor which was beautiful. Desserts were fresh and fantastic! Would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to my next trip back... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and it is a treat most times. I love the indoor atmosphere, however the front needs some maintenance to truly reflect the cozy interior experience. My favorite is the scallop appetizers (although price and portion do not match...you feel a little jipped when they put it in front of you) but they... More

I love this restaurant. We had exceptional service. My steak was a bit underdone and the chef came out to personally apologize after cooking it a bit more. The desserts were to die for!
