Such a great choice! Great atmosphere, great view, great service, great food, great prices! Casual, family dining... SO accommodating to children and dogs! Definitely recommend Mainely Delights over anything with crowds on be other side of the island!

This little place deserves more stars----because it's such a basic place, I'm giving it 3. But as basic restaurants go, it could certainly be a 5-star compared to other restaurants of its type. It's a basic order-at-the-window kind of place, and then they bring your food to you. Dine outside or in------outside is nice, it overlooks the ferry terminal. Soft... More

Their lobster is some of the best, and so is everything else on their menu. Their homemade whoopie pies are amazing. Also very friendly service.

We had a very good meal here. Bass Harbor is a really cute fishing community, we wish we'd found it earlier in our stay. They did not have lobster bisque the day we went, but the waitress asked the cook, and she made it for us. We had Haddock, Haddock cakes, and ice cream cookies. All were delicious, and we... More

The locals and those in the know go here..... no frills and wonderful typical area food at better prices than the "other" places plus great service.

Outdoor, indoor or screened porch seating! Nestled into a hillside made the water views delightful watching lobster boats enter through the fog & people awaiting Swan Island ferry! Our food choices outstanding & Maine originals! Crab cake sandwich yummy followed by blueberry cake reminiscent of my mother's! The clam chowder extraordinarily delightful!

We stopped here last August on a quest for steamers. Seemed every other restaurant in the a at area was out. I ran in to ask if they had steamers and they did. I didn't really expect much but we stayed and tried them anyway. They were delicious! We ate them on the deck out front with a great view... More

The food is decent fried food. The service is alright. The view is great. Don't expect anything fancy.

This is a good lunch place (and maybe the only one in Bass Harbor) where you place your order at the counter, pay for it, and have it delivered to your table on a paper plate with plastic fork. On our visit, it had just opened for the season a few days earlier.

Let's get the "no credit cards" thing out of the way - that's going to be fixed later this summer, so no need to complain anymore. But let's talk about what really counts - perfect lobster-shack food at very reasonable prices (I really don't understand at all the "too expensive" reviews. ) The fried food is done perfectly - light...
