What a great atmosphere ! I enjoyed a beer while my wife relaxed at our B&B about a block away. I did not have a chance to try any the food offered. However, what I was able to see and hear from others close by certainly sounded extremely positive. I was a bit disappointed the next day when I returned... More

The atmosphere here leaves something to be desired. I ordered cippino.....which is a seafood dish in a broth like a bouillabaisse. The broth was not much better than adding a can of tomato soup into the dish and then a bit of seasoning. One small piece of lobster and no shrimp. Dry bread toasts came with it.......seemed stale. Husband had... More

Husband ordered the "drunken burger" and said it was the best burger he had ever eaten. I ordered a spinach salad that was fresh and so good. A place where locals gather.

Atmosphere is casual and friendly. The scallops were nicely browned on the outside and moist on the inside done to perfection with great taste. My wife's sirloin steak nicely charred on the outside while done to medium rare and great seasoning. The caesar salad also was one of the best I have eaten. Overall a great meal!

This "off the beaten track" pub-restaurant serves excellent, inventive meals. It is one of the friendliest (staff and guests) places I have ever been to. They also have live performances some nights. We highly recommend it.

This was one of the best restaurant experiences we have ever had.The scallops were tender and tasty. We were the first seated in a cozy room filled with finely crafted woodwork reclaimed from cottages from the Bar Harbor fire of the 1940's. Later 2 other couples were seated and over heard us talking about how great the scallops were.on my... More

The only item on the menu that even came closed to being inexpensive was the hamburgers. We came here looking for a cheaper meal, as that's what they advertise. The food was decent, but nothing special. Service was good and the building is beautiful.

Great place! Visited for dinner on Saturday evening. Antique filled interior with woodwork and fireplace from old BH cottages. Excellent service. Mussels to die for. Highly recommend.

My husband and I had the most amazing meal at this restaurant. It was our first of two nights in Bar Harbor and having stumbled upon this place, we knew we were having dinner here again the following night before we left! Sadly, when we returned, though the Black Friar Inn was open, the Pub (with it's ambiance, mixology, great... More
