We were looking for a place where we could sit outside with our small dog. I went inside to inquire about carry out and mentioned that we were traveling with our dog. The hostess advised that we could sit with our dog outside on their dock. We did and the food was very good - one boiled lobster, fried scallops,... More

We took the 4:30pm Whale watching trip (sunset trip)from the same Marina where this restaurant is located and had a fabulous time and were tired by the time we were back on land. So we basically went to this restaurant for the sake of convenience and were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices and the enjoyable atmosphere. We were there... More

Best place to grab a drink late night. Good mix of locals and tourists. Live music on weekend nights and some good local brews on tap.

Located right on the Bar Harbor docks from where the Whale Watch cruise departs, this small cafe will offer you a fast bite. They have sandwiches (crab roll is ok) and sweets (brownie is good) and coffee. The staff is really friendly and chatty, good job!

The hostess and waiter were very polite. The atmosphere was rustic and nautical. It was a good place to grab a bite after the whale watching tour. However, as I had ordered the "special", I was not entitled to the 10% off as advertised. I wish that had been mentioned somewhere along the line when I bought my tickets. That... More

We stumbled up this place (Whale Watch Cafe 1 West Street ) by accident. We had just picked up our tickets for Oli’s Trolly and started heading towards where you board the trolly. We were hardly out of the building (1 West Street) and I smell fresh muffins and brewed coffee. Along side of the building is a ramp going... More
