We stumbled across this cosy, fun, local restaurant by accident, with an excellent wine list, menu, superb food, ambience and absolutely wonderful wait staff. Overall excellent value, and my husband deemed their $4 soup appetizer the best bargain in Acadia national park.

My wife and I recently vacationed in Maine and spent 4 wonderful days in Southwest Harbor. Believe it or not, we dined at Sips 3 out of the 4 nights we were there because 1: the food was yummy, 2: the wine list was excellent, and 3: the service (Renee is the best!) was outstanding. I highly recommend Sips if... More

I thought the place had a funny smell, but my husband didn't notice. They had a nice variety, but the food itself was just ok...nothing special. We will definitely go back to the Acadia area for another visit someday, but we'll probably skip this place.

We liked Sips Breakfast so much that we went there three days in a row. The coffee was excellent, the food was great, but above everything the service was spectacular. I'm in a service industry myself, and Iam a sucker for good service. They were quik, and friendlyWe had mushroom omletes, crepes, and eggs over easy. Everything was good.

We spent 3 out of 4 nights of our trip to SW Harbor dining at this amazing place. The food is above and beyond what other places in the area are serving with some very eclectic choices. We loved it!

The live music Wednesday evenings with dinner was very enjoyable. We ate here 2 weeks ago while staying nearby for the Night Sky Festival and had a wonderful evening - service good, food very good and reasonably priced, and wine inexpensive by the glass. The music was not too loud and a sense of intimacy retained. We also came for... More

We ate our breakfast at Sips in Southwest Harbor, Me and had a very pleasant experience. I had the crepes with blueberry sauce and my partner a cup of yogurt with granola and fresh fruit. I saw another couple who had the French Toast and it looked delicious as well. All I can say about the crepes is to go... More

My husband and I were brought to Sips by friends who live in the area. I had the Curry Chicken Crepes, and it was delicious. My husband had Surf and Turf and loved it too. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and were good with recommendations. The value was great too, especially for half price drinks at happy hour.

I really wanted to love Sips. My husband and I are both vegetarians and the menu had several great sounding options. Unfortunately, the food was pretty average. I ordered the lemon risotto but it didn't really have any flavor (definitely could not taste any lemon) and I had to keep adding salt and pepper to it, which I almost never... More
