Tripadvisor reviews told us this restaurant was worth going to, and we were not disappointed. The cocktails were creative and the entrees delicious. All four of us ordered a different entree - the layers of flavors in each of them were amazing. Service was excellent. Call early for reservations, as Fathom is small and fills up quickly, especially in cool,... More

But make sure to call early for reservations so you aren't disappointed! We loved the food as it was a culinary delight! The drinks were fun and very tasty. The service was above par and it has a welcoming and fun atmosphere. Just save room for dessert as they do a great job with that too---the fudge dessert and blueberry... More

This restaurant is by far one of my favorites. Everything on the menu was fresh with a creative twist. The layers of flavor in each dish was notable and perfect. Cocktails were perfectly mixed. I ordered the parsnip and coconut soup. It was delightful and light (no heavy creams or butter).For the entrée, I had the tuna and my husband... More

My husband and I had dinner here and loved it. We ordered the cheese plate and both had the lobster carbonara and it was phenomenal! One of he best lobster dishes we've ever had! The dish had SO much lobster and flavors were perfect! When we return this will be first on our list!

My mussel dinner cooked with bacon and white wine were the best ever! Yes, you must try Fathom in Bar Harbor. We were seated outside in a very pleasant atmosphere with great service.

Enjoyed a fantastic meal. We were a large (and loud) party of 8 and the staff was wonderful, service excellent. The special cocktails were delicious. Every entree was beautifully presented. The butter poached halibut was divine. Located off cottage road it's worth seeking this restaurant out. You won't be disappointed.

Fathom is a two- or three- year-old reinterpretation of Maggie's, which was a mainstay of fine dining on Mount Desert. The folks who took over from Maggie have done her previous efforts proud. The restaurant is located just off the main street leading into downtown, and while it overlooks a parking lot (don't get too excited about an outdoor table)... More

I really enjoyed this place. Down Cottage Street off the main drag which I consider a plus, sat outside on a nice night. Food was great. Liked the tuna appetizer and a nice vegetarian themed salad. Chateaubriand was great and it was reported that so was the halibut. No reservation and no wait tho we go early. Parking's a little... More
