OMG great

for real waiters, as nice as possible and food to die for. What more could you ask for. Not inexpensive but this is the place if you want to sit down casual and eat like royalty. the soups got raves. The seafood, even other than lobster, was fantastic. Go... you'll keep coming back

The restaurant has an interesting eclectic menu, good cocktails and service was attentive and fast but the food was only so-so. I had halibut that was (oddly) topped with cheddar cheese which proved to be an unfortunate combination - dry and not very flavorful. My husband ordered pork which was better but not great.

This place really does it right! The selection is very good and the effort put into the meals should satisfy the most jaded foodie.

Loved the lobster pasta. Service was good and prices felt like a good value. Not waterfront, but most places in SW Harbor are not.

We joined a larger group, of 12, for dinner. Everyone had a good meal and no complaints. Service was good, food was good and everyone was happy. My meal was an apple/squash salad which was delicious and really large. I could have stopped there but I also had the crab cake appetizer which was good as well. Overall a good... More

I had a lobster pasta with sun dried tomatoes, red onions, pecans, linguine in a wine cream sauce. Most excellent! Highly recommend making dinner reservations.

Each time we came, we felt so welcomed at this lovely restaurant. From the hosts and hostesses to the knowledgeable servers and extremely friendly owners, you... More

Food was excellent as was the service, but from value perspective, "eh". The setting in the small village of Southwest Harbor is idyllic.

One of a number of fine Southwest Harbor restaurants. My wife had a delicious lobster pot pie, while I took a break from seafood with a perfectly done filet mignon. The service was A-1.
