We went to the location by the brewery. We saw another on the highway near town. The food was basic but pretty good. We tried the sampler plate and shared it. The sweet sauce had gluten in it. The hot sauce was really that. Not a hot barbecue sauce but it was gluten free. No gluten in the meats. We... More

Stopped for a great lunch while at Atlantic brewing. Other than one very gruff server the food was great. I would recommend to anyone for a great lunch.

Along with our tour of the Atlantic Brewery (next door) we thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant stop. We ordered the dry-rubbed wings and raved about them for hours afterward. They were spicy, so be prepared for some heat. You can add some of the BBQ sauce that is located on every table if you choose. A welcomed stop on our adventure... More

Pancakes are the best I ever had. Pooled pork is a rock! Inexpensive and high quality. Also ice cream very good.

Camping nearby, we had the BBQ assortment my daughter & her family ordered & brought back to the campsite! Enough for 6 hungry campers & 1 active toddler! Ribs, chicken, salad & more, all yummy! So many ribs in the order that we had Leftovers for the hearty morning appetites the next day! We also had breakfast @ this restaurant,... More

While visiting Bar Harbor during our vacation last week, we decided to skip the seafood for one night and have some BBQ. Actually it wasn't even BBQ it was smoked and then thrown on the fire. There wasn't any BBQ sauce on it at all, just the rub, which was way too spicy! My husband ordered the ribs and I... More

This is a BBQ restaurant, so if you are tired of eating seafood, then make the trek out here. It is next to the Atlantic Brewing Company, and not in downtown Bar Harbor. The BBQ is average, but you get generous portions.

Never expected to write a positive review for BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon Line but Mainely Meat made me rethink my BBQ bias! Worth the bit of a drive to get there if you are based in a Bar Harbor.

Perhaps we are spoiled with our hometown BBQ joint, but we did not enjoy our meal. It was our most expensive on our week long trip, but the pulled pork had no flavor until you put sauce on it. My husband's serving had a huge hunk of fat in it.

This is a great place to have a messy, meaty, delicious dinner at a very reasonable price. These people know how to barbecue, and nothing disappoints. We went with a group of friends during Fourth of July week. Bar Harbor can be a crowded, overpriced, challenging destination during this busy week, but Mainely Meat is a refreshing escape. Just a...
