Primarily and ice cream shop with limited indoor and lots of outdoor seating. But food is good and prices for a tourist town are not outrageous.

Stopped by when were exploring the area, just because we sow outdoor seating. Happened to be just by town's main square. Very good lunch and good service. But the local gem was home made pie we bought there. It was blueberry pie really full of wild blueberry, Maine's famous.

We drove over to the "quiet side" of MDI to eat here. Glad we didn't delay as we ate the last day they were open. Great sandwiches, wonderful blueberry pie. Friendly people.

The Quietside Cafe in Southwest Harbor is a must-go-to place. They serve everything from homemade pies (yum) to ice cream to seafood. It is quaint and fun there.

What can't be said about this spot? If you sit at the counter, control your urges or you'll walkout with an amazing Apple or Blueberry pie. My wife and I picked up food to go the other night. Se grabbed a chicken sandwich and I grabbed a Lobster Roll and some Clam Chowder. Easily, the best Chowder I have ever... More

We were looking for a slice of blueberry pie with ice cream, but started with lobster rolls. A quaint, wonderful place, where it seems the locals go, as the owners served and joked with the customers. Nice people, good food!

Outstanding chowder and lobster stew. And then-the pie is to DIE for. Wicked Good. In fact everyone enjoyed everything.

So friendly and food was always good. We were just a block from here for the week and between four of us we ate here at least 6 times. The pie is great as well as the chowder and pizza. The lemonade is as good as Jordans Pond House. Thanks guys for giving us a great week.

A great place to have lunch either inside or out on the picnic benches. A large menu to select from but you really need to have the lobster & shrimp pizza. It is different and it is very delicious. There are plenty of home baked temptations in addition to ice cream for desert.
