A perennial summer favorite for us since 1996.

What first attracted us to this place was the BBQ. We are big fans of good BBQ and for a long time this was the only place near Bangor offering that. The lobster, pies and other seafood are great as are the ribs, brisket, pulled-pork and my favorite the smoked mussels. We always try to bring... read more

Noticed this little place on our way into Bar Harbor ME. Backtracked for dinner. Great staff, local flavor and the best lobster rolls around per hubby. Being used to KC BBQ, I must say, they do a real fine job here.

I almost drove right by this place, but couldn't be more pleased that I stopped. Both the fresh seafood and the BBQ were delicious. The atmosphere is very laid back, and the service was great.

Pit smoked pork was great. Lobster roll was tasteless. Sides very tasty. Friendly waiter. Enjoyed the inside pellet stove on a chilly night.

We found this place, just as they were opening for lunch and many in my group were in the mood for BBQ after a week of seafood. The lack of cars in the parking lot was a little scary at first, but we ordered anyway. After we ordered people started coming in. The brisket was fantastic, the pulled pork was... More
