Great seafood entrees at this tiny restaurant tucked away in Bar Harbor. Good service and decent wine list.

I had the filet tenderloin dish and it was outstanding. My mother had the salmon which was also very good and all the sides that went with them were delicious as well. However, this is a upper end more fru-fru restaurant so the portions aren't huge and they are on the more creative side. So if you want a really... More

I enjoyed absolutely everything about our dinner at Fathom. I had the swordfish which was incredible and the sides really made the dish. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was very friendly! I highly recommend this for a special occasion or just a night to treat yourself!

Fathom is an intimate restaurant with a delicious menu to choose from. I had the chateaubriand with kale and my dinner companion had pasta with pork. I very much enjoyed the seafood chowder and the homemade bread was delicious, too!

I come to Maine to eat the lobster. This was a rare night when I ate a dinner that did not include lobster. This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the B&B where we were staying. We are so glad we went. My wife started with the crab cake appetizer. Now we are from Virginia, and we think we... More

Found this place on TA and decided we couldn't go wrong with high rating. Trip Advisor contributors were dead on. It was fantastic. We started with the mussels for appetizer and for main course we had the chateaubriand as well as the scallops special. The scallops were good but the chateaubriand was outstanding. Service was very good and the homemade... More

Fathom is located on a side street off of Cottage St. in Bar Harbor. It is relatively new in a nicely restored and furnished house. The menu is interesting - look for the fresh, local fish specials. The service is friendly, but they can get busy.

We just returned from an amazing meal at Fathom. We were seated in the outside patio which was very intimate and with the heaters on, very cosy. I started with a very different cocktail called a Ruby Shrub which was Hendricks, a black pepper syrup, ruby grapefruit juice and white basalmic vinegar ...as I read it to my husband he... More

We dined at Fathom based on TripAdvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. Two of the four of us had the Maine Lobster Carbonara and said it was quite delicious. I had the Chateaubriand Style Filet with mashed potatoes, green beans and crispy kale. The beef was fork tender and everything on the plate was absolutely delicious. I left nothing on... More
