Stopped for lunch departing Bar Harbor during our Lobster, Lobster Roll and Chowder tour of July 2015. We're Texans, so we skipped the BBQ (but did see the authentic smoker indicating their understanding that BBQ has nothing to do with cooking burgers over charcoal, but involves smoking meat low and slow) and focused on the seafood. Lobster roll was tasty... More

My family and I stopped here for lunch after a camping weekend in Bar Harbor. I picked the place mostly because we were hauling a long fifth wheel and there was room to park. There were many staff members bustling about the casual, outdoor eatery, but it wasn't immediately clear if we needed to wait or seat ourselves. After a... More

My last review for this joint was raving about all of it, but it has changed. The ribs were not done to the point of the meat falling off the bone. You could tell that they were smoked to a point then grilled. They became tuff, bummer. The brisket normally is sliced and then presented, not chopped, like it makes... More

I guess you can't really have bad lobsters in maine. But we all loved our lobster meals. They were tasty and fresh. Side dishes were just ok. Atmosphere is nothing special. Service was prompt.

Stopped here our first night in Bar Harbor for Lobster. Neal our waiter was most helpful and informative. He made some nice suggestions for dinner as well as nice conversation. We really enjoyed the lobster dinner and the lobster mac and cheese was decadent. Get the baked beans! Only issue was I wish they gave a bigger portion.

First time here driving by, looked like a popular place, and stopped for lunch. Dining is outdoor, open picnic tables, outdoor kitchen with a few picnic tables the clapboard building. Though my husbands fish sandwich was great and priced right at 10 bucks, I opted for the special grilled fish of the day lunch listed on the board which was... More

Well we splurged. If you read of my reviews I tend to be on the frugal side and hate spending a lot of money and nothing to show for it. However we decided life is short and we were going to pass on the guilt and buy and incredible lobster dinner and that we did. Our waiter Alan was awesome... More
