Great casual spot with interesting food

After 4 days of lobster rolls and steamed lobster, we decided to try something different for dinner. Lompoc was a great place to go. As it was buggy out we opted to eat inside by the bar.

A very relaxing back alley atmosphere with good food and good entertainment. We have been there many times and always satisfied.

We have eaten here several times, and really like the vegetarian options. They are very creative, different and tasty. They have a good choice of local beers. We ate early which was lucky, as the place filled up pretty quickly, and it was a little noisy when it was full. The service was great, no complaints. We did not experience... More

Decor a bit spartan, but had some good local beers. Some seating outside, which would be pleasant in the daytime.

My brother and I came here with one of his friends and I was amazed by how much I loved the food. We got mussels, fried pickles, Brussels Sprouts, and then for a main dish we got steak and scallops. I (NEVER) order steak when I'm out, but my brother insisted, and it was delicious. My brothers scallops were excellent... More

This cafe was so noisy we could not carry on a conversation. Not only were the patrons all noisy but the loudest music possible was blasting forth. We waited 15 minutes to order food, another 25 minutes for two soups and a salad to appear and then did not have time to enjoy it because we were rushing to catch... More

Stumbled upon this place on our first night in Bar Harbor looking for a casual dinner. Very excited to find this inventive menu in the midst of a street of very conventional choices - Pub/Mexican/Pizza/Chinese/etc. We loved the Indian-style lobster cakes, pizza, chilled cucumber mint soup, and falafel burger. Laid back atmosphere, inside or outside seating, a number of families... More

Lompoc was recommended to us by a local and we're still scratching our heads on this trying to figure out what the appeal could possibly be. Perhaps there are some dishes they do well, but nothing we ordered was very good. We started out with the cheese fritters and beet carpaccio. Fritters were flavorless and the beets tasted like they... More

This place is highly overpriced for average food. The restaurant is dingy and there were flies who had come for dinner apparently. Some kale curry with rice and lobster cakes( which was 90% potatoes and 10% lobster) cost us 50$ !! I guess people come here for the drinks and not the food.

This is a local restaurant with a "beer garden" with a bocce court. Next to public parking lot but shielded from it by a line of trees. Burger, lobster rolls, pizza and more. As night came on the garden was lit with lanterns. Nice casual eatery that doesn't think too much of itself!
