Food was good in a very unique setting. Was a popular local hangout. Too bad it burned in December. It will be missed.

Sadly, it burned to the ground last night (Dec 4, 2013). A Mt Desert landmark lost. See Mt Desert Islander (paper).

I'm sad to report that Captain Nemo's burned down last night. It was a huge loss to the local community. This place was a favorite for many and it will be dearly missed by its patrons.

Well, Judy, who does the cooking, and Bob came to Bass Harbor from Alaska. If you drive by this place it looks like a junkyard. Hulking old boat outside, stuff all over the place and stuff all over the roof. Some of our women friends will not go there just because of the outside appearance. However the guys will go... More

It takes a special person to love a place like this. If you are the kind that has to have order, things in place and white spotless walls you may want to continue on. However, if you love the crazy things in life, stuff all over the walls and mismatched chairs this is your place! Cap'n Nemo's is what I... More

What a fun and funky place. We visited several times while vacationing in Southwest Harbor, ME. The staff is fabulous, the owner hilarious, and the haddock sandwich delicious. But best of all is their bloody mary, served with a lobster tail. It's pricey but worth it! Stop by for a laugh and you'll leave as a friend.

A neat place to just hang out and chat with the locals. The beer is cold and plentiful, I dare you to drink cheaper anywhere. The chowder was tasty, the grilled haddock flavorful but a tad over cooked. Still, a must place to visit, eat the bat food and chill. Bring cash, they don't take credit cards, but the do... More

It's a little crazy but cool, worth stopping for a cold one on the way to Bass Harbor lighthouse. Funky weird stuff on the wall and nice cold beer. A friendly family owned business, at least during the day when I was there.

Ambience is some of this and some of that. Shared a large table with another couple as all of the other tables were taken. First tried the Lobster Chowder and did not think it was very good. Chunks of potatoes and some lobster in a thin broth. The lobster roll was good. Lower price than most places. The blueberry pie... More
