This is the place to go if you want to get away from all the tourists! My husband and I. Had a very enjoyable dinner in this charming location. We ordered the mussels and lobster bisque for an appetizer, both were very good! Then the meal... I have the haddock and it was to die for! Great flavor and those... More

We ate here twice while in Bar Harbor. We loved it both times. We have been to Bar Harbor many times and never knew this place was there. It is a little out of the main areas of town on a side street. The food is probably the best we had while in town. I had a burger, my son... More

On a recent trip to Bar Harbor with my boyfriend, Black Friar Pub was suggested to us and we decided to give it a shot. We are so glad that we did! I think we were the only people there who weren't locals, so we knew that we must have found a gem just from that. We are so glad... More

An off the beaten path location. Very inviting if not a bit quirky bar setting for our meat. Really tasty burger for a reasonable price, good local craft beers on tap.

I have been to the pub several times and the food is the best I ever had in Bar Harbor. Tom makes the best pancakes I ever had in my entire life. I always look forward to seeing Tom and having breakfast at his inn.He is very kind and accommodating to all people who stay or eat at his pub.... More

This one is a little different. It's in a small Inn and has a small bar/restaurant. We had breakfast there a year ago and this year decided to have dinner there a couple times. We enjoyed it both times. It's a little quieter than most places in town. It has a pretty nice variety of items on the meno and... More

We ate here during our first night staying at the Black Friar Inn. We had two of the ale soaked burgers and a cup of lobster bisque along with a couple Gritty's beers. It was all good and reasonably priced. The menu consisted of upscale pub food with lots of local dishes. Also had a piece of chocolate cake that... More

Just stopped by for a beer as had read abut it in a Frommer's Guidebook. No rooms available but still wanted to look at it. Barmaid/waitress was a bit irked that we didn't eat a meal there. We weren't very hungry plus prices were pretty steep, but from what we saw served the food looked very good.

This was probably our favorite meal and restaurant during our week-long honeymoon in Bar Harbor. The Black Friar Pub was recommended to us from a local business owner and we are very glad we took up the recommendation. I'd definitely say it's one of the best restaurants in all of Bar Harbor and what makes it even better is it's... More
