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

We stopped here for a change from lobster and because we heard they had good bar-b-q. The chicken was as good as advertised. My husband had the sausage and it was also very good. We had enough for another meal. The cherry pie was nothing special. The prices were high even for Bar Harbor. Much higher than we spend at... More

Pros: really good onion rings, fries and blueberry lemonade. Decent chowder and blueberry pie. Cons: Crappy kid's mac n cheese. Totally looks like it came out of a box and a small portion to boot. People had good comments on their potato salad but I found it flavorless. And possibly the worst lobster roll on our trip to Bar Harbor.... More

Noticed this place while driving by...lots of cars in the parking lot so figured it must be good. We weren't disappointed...it was raining so we sat inside; there was a nice fire going in the fireplace which took the chill off the evening. We both ordered the bbq chicken, along with corn on the cob and red potatoes as sides.... More

Took my husband here bc I was craving pork. Pork was very dry had to smother it with BBQ sauce. Sides were small to the point where my husband without saying anything to him asked if I wanted to go get a cheeseburger afterwards. I left hungry which says a bit, it doesn't take much to fill me. I could... More

BBQedlobster, Owner at Lobster Pound & Real Pit BBQ, responded to this review

Dear Customer? The reason why I am questioning if you were a customer is because no customer has ever left here hungry! It is quite the opposite as we pride ourselves on our big portions and policy of offering customers additional sides if requested. Our Pitt master has been creating BBQ for over 35 years and our pulled pork is... More
