We ate here for breakfast yesterday and it was phenomenal! I had scrambled eggs, a biscuit, and baked beans and i loved it all! Big portions and at a reasonable price. We probably would have paid 5 times the amount eating in down town bar harbor. Ask for their home made hot sauce!

After driving hours we decided to pop in somewhere while waiting out the rain to put up out tent. Good call on this stop, the first time I've had decent BBQ since we moved out of the south. Potato salad was mustard based and had dill pickles...pretty much my definition of good potato salad. Coleslaw was excellent too. Chicken is... More

Really good BBQ right along the side of the road that leads into Mount Desert Island. They serve great lobster steamed while you wait and the meat is tasty. The cole slaw was home made and tasty with pieces of pineapple. Worth the stop

I visited with my husband and 2 small boys for breakfast on a weekday. They have outdoor seating and a convenient location. Overall the food was good and prices are reasonable. In my head I had already started composing a pretty favorable review. However, as we were sitting in our vehicle preparing to leave I saw one of the servers... More

Came across this hidden place simply to buy the large container of mustard at The Atlantic Brewery. However Mainely Meat Barbecue is located on its premises so we got a double treat of shopping for a gigantic container of the yummiest mustard along with great barbecue. I had a family of 4 so we purchased the Max Plate, 4x the... More

The ribs had a dry rub and not a sauce of any kind. The meat was tender and delicious. Be careful of the baked beans...they are very spicy.

We found out about their breakfast from our hotel. The food was excellent, we had pancakes that were enormous and delicious. There was no wait and service was quick and attentive. Ice cream was another time after we played mini golf and got a "loser" cone. Giant portions. Love the grab bag!
