Lots of bakery and snacks. Huge brownie for a good price. It was not too clear what they had for sandwiches

Small joint to grab a bite. More of a hole in the wall but great prices on lobster rolls and soda/water was only a buck. Not a lot of seating.

This is a very crowded place but our server was on the ball. The food was good and we enjoyed it. I don't think it is a stand-out place in regard to the food though, just good enough. There are plenty of places to eat in Bar Harbor so we figured we try as many as possible while there.

Stopped in for a quick bite before departing on the 1pm Whale Watch cruise. Had a quick drink and a piece of excellent Blueberry Pie. Nothing super fancy. Was convenient because it was right next to where the Wale Watch boat loads.

My husband and I had breakfast at Grumpy's this morning, partly because we are staying close by and partly because the reviews intrigued us. There was nothing "grumpy" about the place. Our waitress was very friendly and outgoing. The food was very good and served in a screened in porch connected to the dining room. There are about five picnic... More

Grumpy's Whale Watch Cafe is a neat little hole in the wall on the docks in Bar Harbor! We were sent there by a cool dock person , Sam, who said he'd heard the lobster rolls were a great deal. They were! Mr. Grumpy lives up to his name til he warms up to you, but those lobster rolls are... More

Mr. Grumpy's was one of the best meals we had while visiting Acadia. The blueberry pancakes were huge, fluffy, and filled with fresh Maine blueberries. Eggs, bacon, coffee...all so good. They give big servings and offer a great view. Only a few tables...it was almost full when we got there. I especially liked that Mr. grumpy actually works there...and must... More

My girlfriend is still talking about how wonderful her crab cake sandwich was. We were with another couple and they graciously split the checks even after we confused them. Service was great! We had just finished the Whale Watching Cruise and were hungry. The menu was nice and we looked out on the dock where we could see tour boats... More
