Stopped in for a casual dinner after an afternoon of spring garden visits on MDI. We've been to all 3 MM BBQ locations - this is our favorite. Quiet setting off the main road with seating for all weather - indoors, under the tent or outside. We had the sampler and a rack of ribs, both very good. Sides are... More

Stopped by here for a quick lunch before heading to Acadia and were pleasantly surprised! Our crew had a variety of meals from the sampler to a hamburger plus an outstanding brewery right next door! After a great meal and some good brews - we all left happy customers. Would definitely return again.

Most excellent BBQ!!! And with fantastic beer made right on the premises!!! Don't miss this place!!! Try the sample platter for four. That way you get to try all of their fantastic meats, slaw, and sides!

Enough food in the sampler for two - the pulled pork is my favorite, but all the food is very good. Eat in or take out.

We stopped in here as part of several days in Bar Harbor, wanting to visit a place that was a bit more low-key. Arriving in the last big shift before closing (8:15 vs. 9 o'clock close), our service was reasonable, but not great. Ms. Cuddles had the pulled pork, while Mr. Cuddles had the sampler platter. The pulled pork was... More

This is one of our favorite stops on Mount Desert Island. Co-located with Atlantic brewing, Mainely Meat guarantees to please. But please, be very hungry when you go. On our last visit, my husband and I each got the sampler platter. This is a lot of food, but there's a method to our madness. The sampler platter comes with ribs... More

We arrived here with all the locals this location was right at the brewery. We sat on picinic tables and it was great getting to know some of the locals for sure. We ordered the Max Plate and it was some of the best Chicken and Sauasages that we have had smoked. We also had ribs and pulled pork it... More

We visited on our last dinner in Bar Harbor. I expected a BBQ only place, but the lobsters were as good or better than anywhere we ate. I had a 1.5 lb lobster and 2 sides for $16.20. Delicious. That was followed by one half of a pulled pork BBQ sandwich, also very good. Worth noting is that there were... More

Excellent bbq sauce, bbq sampler is amazing, terrific brewed beer and root beer/blueberry sodas. Service was quick & very friendly. An authentic Maine dining experience and would never miss out on going again the next time we visit.
