Stopped in here for lunch and had a great experience. The staff was attentive, food excellent. Fair prices. The mac and cheese was some of the best I've ever eaten. Give this place a try!

We decided to enjoy a rainy day breakfast at Sips, since we go by it everyday on the way to work. The restaurant is very nice and in a great location. At first, I was a little thrown off because no one was there when we walked in or acknowledged that we were standing there, and so I asked if... More

Our dinner started out well and just never quit. First was the house Margarita, one of the best I've ever had and huge!

We asked if the Haddock/lobster dish had a whole tail as described on the menu. The friendly waitress (Daisy) checked for us and said yes it came with a whole lobster tail. When the meal came there were just the meat of 2 tiny lobster claws. Very disappointing! We don't really like to complain but since we specifically asked about... More

We were holidays just up the road in Somesville and restaurant was recommended by the owner. A good choice - great atmosphere, good service and great food for a vegetarian too. Enjoyed the evening thoroughly, ending it of with exceptional espressos!

Good breakfast, large portions, reasonable prices. Not many places open in town (we were here by boat) and this was good. Would go back,

Great coffee. Had a cafe au lait made with their blueberry coffee, and it was amazing. The blueberry coffee has just a hint of berry flavor that makes it delicious.

This is Southwest Harbor's bistro--casual but well done and nicely varied dining with competent but hurried service. Good wines and a wide selection of beer. We go every year and like it each time.
