Good food, sophisticated but not fancy, well executed. Crab cake appetizer was particularly good - delicate and tasty. Homemade blueberry pie was delicious. Friendly waitstaff. Not the best location but quiet and away from the worst of Bar Harbor.

Everything about this place, from the interior, thru service, to presentation of food, is top notch. My husband and i have chosen this place for our dedicated anniversary restaurant. It's not cheap, but you pay for what you get. Most delicious steak i have ever had (the fillet with crispy kale).

We liked the food and service, It food certainly had good taste and presentation, This was more of a quality restaurant than quantity (we like that type). Menu was not extensive but it covered all the basic food types and we enjoyed both meat and fish dishes. Our only slight negative was our seating in the front of the restaurant,... More

We had a great meal at Fathom on our recent trip and would highly recommend this restaurant. We did not have reservations but they took us in anyway. The fish meal was excellent and so was the service. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting this town.

Given all the great reviews, we expected a memorable dining experience. Instead, we got an okay meal, but nothing special. My husband ordered a Vietnamese salad made with shrimp noodles - shrimp pureed and made into noodles. The salad was fresh, but the parts of the salad didn't seem to mesh and overall the salad was bland. My halibut was... More

Great food. Awesome presentation. Attentive service! Wine list has tasting notes for most of their wines - really helpful in choosing a bottle. Cute outdoor seating option - recommend that you show up early or make reservations.

My wife loved Fathom and I thought it was average. I had the salmon and an overly sweet slice of blueberry pie. I expected more for the price.

This steak was succulent and tasty....my mouth is watering just thinking of it! The crispy Kale was also done to perfection and I got a lot of it! I wasn't eating the whipped potatoes so they substituted for extra crispy Kale! Great service and great food!

We read about Fathom our first night in Bar Harbor, and went without a reservation. We were greeted at the door by Tracy, who we later learned was the owner. She found us a lovely table and we went on to have one of the 10 best dinners of my life. The food was fresh, the service was outstanding, the... More
