We had a great lunch here and a couple drinks. It's BUSY but then again it is the "A" spot on west street - most highly visible piece of real estate on the strip. Food here is excellent, service is fast and friendly and the menu is great. Great experience in Bar Harbor.

Beautiful decor. Delish food. Great views. Actual Irish people employed there. Do I really need to say more?

We entered the nearly empty pub at the end of the season, but when we said we were just drinking, we were told we could only sit at the bar (even though there were 50-60 empty tables just sitting there). We had one drink and left. Bartender was semi-attentive and nice.

A beautiful establishment from the outside and even nicer inside.Across from the harbor,it seems like a little higher end area, but just as friendly.We stopped for beers at the bar one evening and were greeted and taken care of by a couple of pleasant Irish lads.Friendly conversation along with a small plate of wings made for a good beginning to...

We got a table for 7 and were able to sit outside to enjoy the view of the harbor. We had great service and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the best lobster roll here that I had in Maine. Would highly recommend and would go back again.

WSe wandered all up and down the main tourist streets of Bar Harbor, looking for a fun, quaint place that didn't have line of people waiting for a table. Paddy's is located at the foot of the main street, closest to the harbor, and was very busy and loud with a lot of people having fun eating and drinking. OUr... More

Great breakfast on outdoor patio overlooking the Ocean --- doesn't get much better than that! I really enjoyed my egg dish --- great Irish cheese and accompaniments! My husband loved his blueberry dish! Service great too -- would certainly go back!
