Very good barbecue.

We've eaten barbecue all over. Mainely Meats' pork rates right up there. If you're on MDI and have a hankering for barbecue, be sure to go there. ( Especially if you like to wash it down with great beer.)

We had dinner at this restaurant recently but I was disappointed. It's much better for breakfast than for dinner. Next time I'll just go there for breakfast. Not much variety on the dinner menu. Why do they show pictures of a cow everywhere when everything is not beef, it's pork? I don't care, but there is not a lot of... More

Four of us shared the Max plate sampler : ribs, sausage, chicken, pulled pork, beans, coleslaw, and potato salad with beer and it was all delicious! So much food that after eating our fill, we still had leftovers to take home. Highly recommended.

It is just that good. whether you are eating here or at the Atlantic brewery location there is bbcue chicken, ribs, pulled pork and all the sides of their own version of potato salad, baked beans, cornbread and coleslaw. The ales from Atlantic are awesome and you can get lobster or a burger too. you can... More

Their pull-pork and BBQ ribs are flavorful alternatives for those who are not inclined for seafood in general. Just don't expect they can compete with anything down in the BBQ countries. The settings are relax and friendly with in-door and out-door seatings. Service are good and beers from Atlantic Brewing company are very tasty.

Great beer coupled with great BBQ is a win. We're only in town for a week but we might have to visit one more time before leaving. Take a brewery tour afterwards!

The beer was great! The BBQ was good. The restaurant is a bar and a tent, bench seating, family friendly. Get a Harbor Bar for dessert!

This is a decent place should you get tired of seafood. The baby back ribs were fine. I ordered half a chicken and it was overcooked. There was no brisket on the menu.

After eating at disappointing seafood restaurants on our Bar Harbor trip, we decided to try Mainely Meat on the outskirts of town. We loved that we didn't have to fight the traffic in downtown Bar Harbor and could just park in the lot. My husband and I are natives of Memphis, Tennessee, and Mainely Meat's BBQ did not disappoint us.... More

Stopped in for an afternoon snack shared the sampler plate. Delicious and perfect for 2 people for $14. Meat was delicious. We will be back!
