It's fun to see the memorabilia in the restaurant...just stick to the... More

Liked the fact we didnt have to book or queue for a table and this is probably because the restaurant is not on Main Street but just seconds away down a side street. We ate lobster, lobster mac n cheese and a burger and they were all tasty, served quickly and efficiently at a decent price.

We stopped here for dinner our first night in Bar Harbor. It was a great meal. The menu is extensive, and we had a hard time deciding what to have. Our server, Heather, was very accommodating and gave us extra time to decide. Once we ordered our food,it was not too long before we were served. The clam chowder was... More

Super fun place. We stopped in for a cocktail before heading back to the hotel. Crystal is an absolute delight and will make your drink any way you desire. We went back the next night for dessert and cocktails. We had Crystal again (by request). The blueberry pie was yummy as was the "elvis Presley" Would definitely go back, and... More
