Our hotel recommended this place as the top place in Bar Harbor for a fresh, healthy salad to-go for our lunch in the park. Really ? 2 handfuls of lettuce and a few shaved carrots from a bag and 2 individual tear-open servings of Kraft salad dressing is all we got for $12. Lettuce was not all that fresh either.... More

Lines were long but worth the wait. At first I was skeptical that a $9.50 sandwich was a tourist ripoff but they were huge and really good. The specialty sandwiches were better (and larger) than the deli sandwiches. The Ruben and thanksgiving day sandwiches were especially good. The brownies had just come out of the oven and were satisfying

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat. Everything was fresh and delicious. Price was great and the service was quick.

If they are busy, don't go here to eat because they WILL mess up your order. Then, when you bring it to their attention(after taking it out because there is no sitting down here), they will say you should have let them know immediately and they COULD have done something. They will do nothing about their error except say YOU... More

We ordered box lunches via phone at 7:30 am before our 5 hour hike. We picked them up about 8 on our way. The lunches were excellent. They included small waters, cookies and chips besides our sandwiches. We liked the food so much, we ordered sandwiches again for pick up the day we did a long bike ride. Excellent food... More

We stopped in because my picky 12 year old son was hungry. He didn't really see anything on the menu he wanted, but the man behind the counter told him he'd make him anything he wanted, which ended up being chicken with cheese in a wrap! He loved it. I had fruit salad and a slice of blueberry pie (both... More

We ate here twice. It is tasty and super fast!!! I had the lobster roll and it was yummy!!! The best, though, was the thanksgiving day after sandwich. Super delicious!!! The 5 bean salad is yummy too!!! Don't be intimidated by the line out the door. It moves fast and the food is worth it

We picked up a couple of Italian subs, two bags of (yes, greasy) lays potato chips and two bottles of water for $24.... but, heck, we were on vacation and we were heading to Sand Beach for the afternoon. This place serves it's purpose, although I would recommend a bag with a handle... they were not boxed lunches in any... More

Stopped and grabbed a lobster roll box lunch from here. I got the tarragon mayo lobster roll. I've had better. The sandwich was small and I couldn't taste any mayo, let alone tarragon mayo. Get your lobster roll someplace else.
