Having come to BH for over two decades, it doesn't take us long to get our fill of the usual dining experiences. We had a blast here; the pub feel, the quality food, the relaxed service. Not cheap. But worth it. It was an Experience.

My husband and I stayed at the Black Friar in 2011. We adore this establishment. This summer we brought our family to Bar Harbor and we brought them to dinner at The Black Friar (June 24, 20015). Our experience was as special as we remembered. Tom, the host, was so friendly and welcoming. We started with a drink at the... More

Be still, my heart. It really was the best steak I've had in my whole life. And I'm no spring chicken. Very cute and charming building. The waitress was outstanding. The haddock was also excellent, as was the scallops appetizer on mozarella crisps (wow!!) and the spinach salad (terrific). One of the sides was some kind of mashed garbanzo beans/hummus... More

Excellent food in a quiet location in Bar Harbor, Maine. I was impressed by the quality of the meal, made up from scratch using fresh ingredients. We were visited an old friend and had a fantastic meal.

This is an interesting place with a nice atmosphere. I enjoyed my steak. My wife really liked the Caesar Salad and the asparagus. The waitress was very friendly.

Heard the music from outside and decided to go in for a meal. Turned out to be a great choice as we had a delicious dinner. The enthusiastic staff, the great entertainment and wonderful food convinced us we had to go back again for breakfast the next morning. Same great food and friendly staff did not disappoint.

We visited the Black Friar Pub because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Although we arrived 10 minutes before it opened for dinner, Jenny the barmaid warmly welcomed us in and allowed us to sit at the bar. She has this custom made drink that she urged me to try and I am glad I did. She infused lavender leaves... More
