The menu was perfect for a vegetarian! I had many choices and finally decided on a vege chili with cheddar cheese and sour cream. Yummm! I also loved their blueberry crisp with vanilla ice cream and a great cappuccino.

Had the pita omelet and an iced coffee sitting in their al fresco dining area; my husband had the fresh squeezed orange juice which was excellent. Great place!

Service can be iffy when they get crowded, but go a little before the rush and you will have a fabulous meal. Known for their lobster reubens (which my husband loved) and I thought the lobster salad was both generous and yummy.

My husband and I stayed in SW Harbor for 10 days and decided to try this place to get away from fried food and sandwiches! I had the pan-seared haddock, and my husband had seared scallops with a light tomato hollandaise sauce. Both meals came with a delicious salad and a choice of their homemade dressings, as well as bread... More

Stopped here for lunch a few days ago. Great overstuffed pita sandwiches in a basic casual setting. The service left a bit to be desired (we had to flag down our server and there was confusion as to which server was taking care of our table) but it was lunch so - whatever.

I had seafood scampi which had big pieces of lobster and other fresh fish, and my husband had grilled scallops which he enjoyed very much. It was hard to choose a dessert!

I'm not sure why it's so hard to find well-prepared, thoughtfully conceived food in MDI, especially since the locavore movement has permeated the state in so many other spots, but Eat-a-Pita is as close as we've found to food that's a pleasure to consume. There's nothing fancy here, but everything we ordered was good -- from salads to crab cakes... More

You won't see pita on the menu at night unless you take out food. Seems to be a health conscious menu. Pasta Florentine without cream, for example. Good appetizers and good bar drinks for those who like mixed drinks.

Suggested by a tour guide but we found this place just ok . Service was friendly but very slow ,plan on waiting if you go . The lobster bisque was fishy tasting and disappointing for being in Maine . The lobster Reuben was ok a little soggy .

My wife and I shared a crab cake entree, each with 1-1/2 delicious crab cakes that had very little filler, nicely done inside with a crispy crust. They were accompanied by a root vegetable puree of carrots, radishes, turnips, onions, and (most likely) cream. Also spears of asparagus. Preceding the entree was a crispy green salad and some yummy herbed... More
