The Claremont is one of the few very old hotels around. The dining room in the hotel is very nice. It does have a dress code, but only requires men to have long pants and a shirt with a collar; so that is very reasonable for a nice dinner. Very nice location in a quiet part of Soutwest Harbor.

President Obama came to the island with his wife, daughters and mother-in-law and had lunch here. We usually eat outdoors down by the water, but that venue was closed for the season and we had an excellent dinner with friends on her birthday. The waitress was very professional, the wine list excellent and the food superb. It is a rather... More

Need reservation and jacket (First night can't eat there because we didn't reserve). The room has big windows on 3 sides, and the harbor view is beautiful.

My party really was looking for something light and being late in the season knew our choices would be limited unless we drove into Bar Harbor.I called The Claremont and they suggested reservations which...

A nice elegant place. We had our romantic dinner of a getaway weekend here. A dressy place, glad i brought the jacket. I know nothing about the hotel, or the bar either. We were simply there for a nice quiet romantic dinner. And that is what we had. The view is probably the best of any restaurant in SW Harbor.... More

My filet was over cooked and tasted strange...sort of like liver. The lobster rosotto was better but nothing special.

Our final night in Acadia Natl Park was highlighted by walking the grounds and a wonderful dinner at the Claremont. Views of the harbor, presentation and quality of our dinners were excellent!

So relaxing. Such a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere! The views are beautiful and the amenities are so convenient. Short walk to town. Bikes and row boat was fun. Peace and quiet. The boathouse for cocktails was also relaxing

We had drinks on the deck, but the boat house cocktail lounge would have been even better. The view was GORGEOUS and drinks excellent. Dinner was icing on the cake!! A wonderful evening in a truly beautiful place!
