excellent lunch!

Wonderful lunch at Colonel's - delicious crab melt, really great fish chowder and I'm VERY fussy about chowder. Pleasant atmosphere, excellent service. Good value too! I'll be back often!

Stopped in because I heard that the baked goods were wonderful and they definitely were. I had a brownie that was just absolutely fantastic. It was a mixed combination of regular brownie with blonde brownie with a crust on the bottom with coconut in it. It was fantastic. There were many other goods available including breads, blueberry donuts, chocolate donuts,... More

I always try and order the crab melt or "crab trap" which comes with fish chowder. Always delicious but it all depends on if they have fresh Maine crab. Pizza is good too and the bakery items!

Actually visited in August 2011--but we weren't on Trip Advisor. I'm writing this review because we are planning to return to Maine this summer and I wanted a record so we can visit again. This is the must place to go for the best blueberry pie! Last time we were in Maine, we had this pie after dinner. The next... More

I haven't been able to get their blueberry donut out of my mind since I had one. Plus the town is so much nicer than Bar Harbor. Well worth a visit.

We visited Colonel's in September, had no prior knowledge of it but just dashed in to get out of the rain. I am so glad we did. It looks small from the outside but it is not, the restaurant is in the back. Friendly server, lovely wooden booths, and very clean. I had a great grilled chicken sandwich with a... More

Northeast Harbor is such a special place, and this restaurant is also! My wife and I just stopped in for a quick bite for lunch, and we're thrilled we did. The food was excellent, even though we hit it just a couple of days before they closed and they were out of many menu items, what they had was delicious.... More

What a fresh, straightforward restaurant serving wonderfully tasty food! I enjoyed a leaf peeper ale that was light and clean tasting. I savored the absolutely divine apple and acorn squash soup. And then the rows and rows of doughnuts on the way out...had to try a blueberry one. It was wonderful. I also bought a loaf of oatmeal bread to... More
