We had lunch here on a Sunday and had no trouble getting a table without a booking. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. My husband had fish and chips, which he really enjoyed. I had the lobster lunch, which was OK, but not really to my taste. It was served hot and whole, with melted butter, and as it... More

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

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!
