I'm not a seafood person but my traveling companion is. We went here so she could get lobster and I could get BBQ. It was awesome! We both loved the food! Excellent choice to please anyone in your traveling party!

BBQ and lobster combination is a must have. The service and atmosphere are excellent and unique. Very friendly and helpful owners. The BBQ is something different and very good. You have to try it along with the lobster of course! A good place to take your family for the true Maine lobster experience. Enjoyed and will be back! Jane and... More

BBQ ribs for $22 was good value and huge. A big eater would have trouble eating this by themself. Definitely for sharing. This was the highlight. Do not get the grilled clams. Clams were small and Shriveled to nothing when it arrived and it was already lukewarm when it arrived, and cost $14. Big ripoff! The clam chowder was the... More

Pet friendly outdoor dinning. We ha the brisket and it was very good. The baby back ribs that they served to another table was a huge portion. Must have them on the next trip.

The clam chowder is soooooooo gooooood! Very very creamy and buttery, goes right to your arteries! At first I thought the pulled pork was too smoky but as I ate it , I really enjoyed it. The sauce for the pulled pork was also very good. The cold slaw had a good kick and the potato salad was good. This... More

We had lunch and dinner on a recent trip to Maine at this restaurant. The food is very good and service is extremely friendly and prompt. They offer your typical Lobster /fish dinners like most places in the area but also offer barbeque food such as ribs. The portions of ribs are huge. As a matter of fact I split... More

We live in the south so we know our BBQ and have pretty high expectations. We enjoyed this place so much that we went here twice. The first time I had a lobster roll which was some of the better lobster I experience on our trip. And the corn was cooked perfectly. Next time I had the brisket and pulled... More

We spent the weekend on Mount Desert Island and were looking for lunch as we headed out. I love BBQ and I love lobster so there were lots of choices. I intended to get lobster but the smokers were cranked and smelled great so we got pulled pork sandwiches. They were excellent! The flavors were well balanced and rich. The... More

We are on vacation in Bar Harbor from Boston. This restaurant is a must try! the owners were super nice, and the waitstaff was very attentive in a very low key way. we did outdoor seating on picnic benches, and it was perfect, as it was a gorgeous night. As far as the food goes, you will not be disappointed!... More
