Felt like a feeding trough... A lot of food but didn't taste very good. Greasy, fatty, bland. Overcooked and dry ribs as if they had been sitting under a heat lamp all day. Server was pleasant and efficient. That was nice.

Our daughter and son in law took us here on a recent visit to Maine to see them. Great barbecue with brisket, pulled pork, chicken, etc. The chicken wings are barbecued, and make a great change from the usual buffalo wings you get most places. The restaurant is affiliated with the Atlantic Brewing Company's microbrewery on the same property so... More

This barbecue was delicious! We had the family platter and it was big enough for all 6 of us and we even took home the leftovers and ate it the next day for lunch. We enjoyed the short beer tour and loved the wine tasting. I would definitely come here on my next trip to Bar Harbor.

After reaching a point of shellfish saturation on our long Maritime adventure, we stopped at Mainely Meat near Bar Harbor for lunch, and were delighted by some top-notch barbecue. We sat outside near the smoker and enjoyed our pulled pork and ribs thoroughly. All the sides were good; the beans were cosmically good.

My friend and I have stopped twice at this place (two different summers) for some Atlantic Brewing beers and the Sampler BBQ. Amazing food and drinks! Good for the price and on the way to the airport. Family friendly as well and the staff and service is great! Check out the brewery right there as well.

We ate here twice on our recent visit to Bar Harbor. Both times, the BBQ was great, and the beer was great. Our kids loved the play area, and the kid sized tables. My only complaint was I wish they had more sauce choices. They only have sweet, and hot. Otherwise, the food is all excellent, but then, I LOVE... More

We started in Atlantic Brewing next door - tasted the free sample beers so we knew what beer to order for lunch. Very low key and relaxed place - walk in and take a menu and seat yourself. They find you and take your order. We both got the pulled pork sandwich and it was delicious. We also ordered beans... More

The one star is for the crummy staff as we didn't even get the opportunity to eat there. Our family went to visit Acadia this week with a group of 7 and a baby. We went to Mainely Meat at Atlantic Brewery because we had been there once before a few years back and loved the ribs. This time we... More

Went there with my family for a dinner and wasn't disappointed. I got the mixed platter and must say that the ribs were great as well as the pulled pork. Great shop by the road and would definitely come back again for some ribs and pulled pork.
