This was our first time to Bar Harbor. And I am quite certain we will be back! We like our winter vacations to Grand Cayman and the exquisite dining they have there. Well, we likened this to a Grand Cayman experience. I see from another reviewer that it has recently been taken over and they did not like the food... More

We went to dinner at the Bar Harbor Restaurant and had a table by the window overlooking the water. We all got walleye encrusted with pistachios, wild rice and broccolini. The walleye was superb. The restaurant was very pleasant and we each had a drink with dinner. Service was excellent, too.

We have enjoyed Bar Harbor on Gull Lake for the last twenty year. It was recently taken over by new owners. We won't be back. First our reservations we made six weeks earlier were not honored. Next the food now is nothing to write home about. Prices have increased by thirty percent. The last thing on the staff's mind was... More

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 !
