We loved this charming, small, local establishment. The wait staff was extremely warm and welcoming. The food was excellent. We especially loved the mussels and steamers. The haddock was excellent too and you cannot miss with the lobsters. All at a completely reasonable price. We were always too full for dessert but each time, we brought our pie home. Excellent...

We dropped in on a Monday after a great tip that it was 2-1 night. The place was packed but we got a table without too long of a wait. The decor was ok, and the staff are extremely hardworking. Our food arrived fairly quickly when you consider how busy it was, and the food was very good. Would definitely... More

Great value and good food. Was very busy in the evening but they do take out if you want to eat in your motel or by the shore.

Good food at a good price. Also has a full bar which we did not need but others might. you can get a great lobster (no kidding, we are in lobsterville!) at a good price. Friendly service and feels like being part of the town.

We ate at the Harbor Cafe all three mornings we were visiting Deer Isle. Each time, we tried something different, and every meal was delicious. My dad particularly enjoyed the eggs Benedict, and I recommend the sausage and cheese omelette. Don't forget home fries and homemade muffins, too!

We had a reservation and were seated right away. Service was prompt and the lobsters were great. The kids enjoyed picking out coloring books which kept them occupied till their dinner came. Desserts were also fantastic. Definitely someplace we'd go back to.

We stopped in Stonington for a quick lunch. We got the Hungarian mushroom soup , the lobster roll and fried haddock. All were great. The desserts looked tempting, but we resisted. 😀. Service was great also. Will come back.

Casual atmosphere. Service was good. I had the fried haddock sandwich for lunch which was fantastic. My husband had the lobster roll which was average. The blueberry pie was fantastic.
