Overall - still Good!

Yes, Eat-a-Pita is still quite good - and fresh at that. I will return ! However, the service is a bit slow, but then maybe the boss could add an extra person or two. With the crowd I see there, s/he isn't in the poor house. Maybe that explains the sour-puss expressions on the staff.

I love pita sandwiches. These were by far the largest, and most stuffed, pitas I've ever encountered. Great lobster bisque and great prices!

Wound up here by chance on a weekday summer evening. Short wait. Attentive and friendly service. Eclectic menu. Enjoyed everything - iced chai, fruit smoothie, crab cake app, spinach salad with shrimp, Angus burger, side salad with fig balsamic dressing, carbonara, blueberry bread pudding and salted caramel budina. Yum!

We had lunch at Eat-A-Pita today and from the second we entered not one employee was smiling or friendly. No exaggeration. It was so strange and totally unpleasant to experience. I'm sensitive to this aspect of a dining experience having worked in restaurants for many years. If you don't care much about that, you may find your experience OK. My... More

Who would of thought of a Reuben sandwich made with lobster? Well, everything up here is lobster, so thought I would try it. It was very good, had lobster salad, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese on grilled rye. Delicious! The home made chips were outrageous, my wife, who usually spurns chips, asked for an extra order, they were so good. My... More

We kept going back several times because we loved their black bean soup so much. There must have been a secret ingredient in it. Friendly service too.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here our first night in Southwest Harbor and it was excellent. We sat outside and considered going inside because the mosquitoes were everywhere, but the waitress went to her car and got her own personal mosquito spray for me to use. She was very sweet and the service was excellent as well. The salad... More

We went to this restaurant, without reservations, about 7:00 p.m. and were seated outside right away (they also have inside dining but it was full). The crab cake appetizer was delicious, as was my salad...the feta cheese was the freshest and most delicious I've ever had!

We must have hit them on an off day but our experience wasn't the best. We'd been up early to see the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain, came back to our hotel in SW Harbor for a nap and hit the restaurant for breakfast around 11 am. The server was perfectly pleasant but it took almost an hour to get our... More
