Had the naked lobster roll (hot with butter only) and clam chowder. Both were delicious. Hole-in-the-wall environment, but that's usually where you find the best food.

Bought sandwiches for lunch both days we were in Bar Harbor. Both days we were really pleased with our choices. The sandwiches were packed full of fresh, tasty fillings with a good choice of different bread options to choose from. Don't go to subway, go here!

With a noon departure for an island cruise, we needed sandwiches that were not too messy to eat on the boat. Took a chance and were rewarded with terrific wraps - chicken spinach and feta and chicken avocado. Lots of chunks of white meat with a minimum of dressing and fresh veggies. Website doesn't adequately describes choices and ingredients. Still... More

My husband and I visit Bar Harbor every summer. Downeast Deli is very convenient for takeout. I usually call an order in for their box lunches, which have always been good. The sandwiches are always ready on time for pickup. I jump out of the car, pick up our order, then we head up to Cadillac Mountain to enjoy good... More

Excellent sandwiches, lobster rolls (of course), chowder & even baked potatoes with all the fixings'. Thanksgiving day after (sandwich) was just like Grandma makes! Pick up a box lunch and go down to Agomount Park, Main st & West st. for a nice lunch with a view. Very efficient considering it's all homemade!

We ordered sandwiches to take back to our hotel room. They were FANTASTIC! They were all packaged up and we got a pickle and a bag of chips. There were so many options and I'm sure each would be delicious. We also got the containers of fruit and they were FANTASTIC!! We stopped by here several times and was happy... More

Got lunch & dinner to go a few times. Always got the lobster rolls that were good & the fruit salad fine too. Like this place best for picking up a quick lobster roll.

Decent food, professional but not necessarily friendly service. Average price. The pie was delicious!

I ordered clam chowder and a whoopie pie and my husband got a lobster roll and it was close to $30. Kind of pricey but I thought it would be worth it. The lobster roll was OK, not bad but not great since they dont grill up the bun and put lettuce in it and the clam chowder was cold!... More
