We had missed lunch while taking a tour of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Timing was tight as the last tender was due to depart in 30mins. Had noticed pricing of lobster rolls at other restaurants, so suggested we just forgo the chance to eat one. Then as we walked by Grumpy's noticed sign, 2 rolls for $15; too... More

Stopped here after our whale watch. It was a good place to warm up and have so good local food. I sampled the lobster rolls at every restaurant we visited. This one was okay.

This coffee shop is located at the dock for most of the boat tours and cruises in Bar Harbor. It's perfect for a quick stop if you wanna grab a snack. They have homemade brownies, bagels, blueberry pie, honey roasted turkey sandwich, ham sandwich, chips, yogurt, LOBSTER ROLL (2 rolls just for 15 dollars) which is very worth it and... More

went on recommendation from someone and we were not disappointed. Very nice little restaurant. Not a great place if you are in a hurry- but that was part of the charming atmosphere. Blueberry pancakes were wonderful and the coffee was great. Very dog friendly place. Would definitely go back again.

We were going on a birding tour out of Bar Harbor and we had to be at the docks at 5:30 am. I knew there was breakfast like objects on the boat but I wasn't really looking forward to whatever those were. And, I really wanted some caffeine. But because I am silly fancy about my coffee I prefer a... More

The food was OK. Eggs were runny, bacon not crisp, potatoes flavorless, coffee weak, omelette lacking enough cheese. Nice staff and great view.
