I have been coming here since it opened and the place has morphed a bit over the years but it has consistenlty good food, an interesting menu unlike any other in Bar Harbor and a good vibe. Our dinner tonight was excellent, drinks also good, not too pricey. One of the places in town I alway stop at when visiting.

If I could give half points then this place would get one! It's definitely better than average, but not quite a four. The menus is varied and everything we had was very tasty. Our waitress was good, attentive and very helpful. We sat out side in the lovely courtyard in the evening. It's well worth going here.

My husband and I ate here our first night in Bar Harbor. The service was great and the food was delicious. The beer selection was perfect. It was great to sit outside and enjoy the breezy weather. There is a Falafel Burger on the menu that can be made vegan!

Pizza and seafood sound like an odd combination, but our party had both selections from the menu and both were outstanding. The vegetarian pizza with ample garlic was especially good.

Bar Harbor is not my scene. There's something about vacationing New Englanders and their children that rubs me the wrong way. I wish I had known that before heading there in the middle of August. Anyway, we were looking for someplace to eat on a Wednesday night. EVERYWHERE was packed. This place said we could get a table in twenty... More

We usually hit Lompoc 2-3x during our stays on the Island. great outdoor seating and dog friendly. Bocci on the side. The food has improved quite a bit since last summer. Highlights are the Beehive starter (goat cheese, roasted garlic and honey with toted crisps) and the falafel burger. Great microbrews and wine selection as well. Service is spotty but... More

The mussels are incredible. The service, once they found us, was good (we had to move to a more visible location). The outdoor seating was really nice. The mussels are so good...we ordered a second serving of them and extra bread for the mustard cream sauce. Soooooo good. Though, the sauce was a little heavy and ended up giving me... More

We were lead here by the Rough Guide which gave it a star (meaning it was better than the other restaurants they mentioned). We made a reservation during the afternoon for 8 pm. When we got there, there was no table for us. Someone finally fixed this. The 3 or 4 waiters seemed overwhelmed by only a dozen tables. The... More
