One of the best meals in Maine!

We discovered this restaurant on our way to the wild acadia fun park. Terrific food, lobster, delicious bbq dishes, yummy lemonade too! Everyone in the family enjoyed their meal! This is a casual, picnic table, roll up your sleeve place! NIce staff and friendly atmosphere!

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 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

The lobster was great. All of our sides were great. We ordered combos lobster and smoked sausage and lobster and ribs all food was fantastic. Servers were very very friendly. The kitchen is outdoors so you can watch your food being prepared
