This was our first time to the new and improved Bar Harbor and we really liked what we saw. The new atmosphere is very cool and the food (both selection and quality) is much better than it has been in the past.

The sauce on the New York strip, which is $27 was the worst taste I have ever had. It seems that all the steak they use comes from the same stock and place, as the minon tastes almost the same as the other steaks. The service was good at the start, then the waitress did not treat us the same... More

Five adults for dinner, and we had mostly great meals. Our whole group loved the seared tuna appetizer, and we proclaim the spinach artichoke dip with sun-dried tomatoes the best SpinDip we've ever had (it's not your standard SpinDip, so don't expect an uber-creamy dish). Those of us with beef filets for dinner lover them. Wife had sea scallops, of... More

This place tries to be something its not. The outside patio is beautiful, but that doesnt make up for the poor service and just ok food. Head to Jakes or Ernies for better more reasonably priced food.

We had a variety of foods. Husband had a nice steak, kids had sandwiches and I had the French onion soup. Steak was wonderful. The kids enjoyed their sandwiches and the soup was just fine. The location is wonderful. Sat and watched the boats go by on the lake.

We enjoyed a nice dinner here. The service was great and the view out to a frozen gull lake was warmed by the warm atmosphere of the dinning room. The food and price were both good and fair. this place must rock in the summer !

Beautiful atmosphere. Over priced food not a huge selection of options. Adequate at best. The view is fabulous in summer. Easy access from lake. Nice servers.

We made reservations for two couples about a month inadvance for a Valentines day dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant (1/2 hour or so before our reservation) it didn't really seem that busy. We pulled up a chair at the bar, and were served by a couple of very accomodating bartenders. When we were due to be seated we... More

Such a beautiful restaurant with amazing food! The ambiance was fantastic. I had the walleye sandwich was was a HUGE fillet. I couldn't finish it all, but i sure tried! I boxed up the leftovers and it even reheated really well. While waiting for our meal, we ventured outside, though it was a tad too chilly to sit outside, it... More

Waitperson took our drink order, mentioned the prime rib special. It was over 20 to place our order. I wasn’t that busy. Orders came in another 20 minutes. 2 got the prime on a bed of Au Gratin, a side of very limp, unrecognizable greens. It was extremely salty, into the body of the meat. My slice was very fatty,...
