Lobster, mussels, and salmon to die for. Everything on the menu looks great. If you are gluten free, this place is off the chart with numerous GF choices. The view upstairs is great, overlooks the harbor. A must eat place!!

We had never eaten a whole lobster but decided to give it a try here. It was excellent but what also made it so good was the service. Our waiter explained how to tear apart the lobster and the different types of meat it had. We were grateful and he was correct. The lobster meat was outstanding. Also, the blueberry... More

If you are lucky you can get a table upstairs (it's inside) for a lovely view of the park and the harbor. If not - I wouldn't eat here because the food was nothing to write home about. There were also about 3-4 tables street-side that would make it worth it as well. Food: The squash cakes were dry and... More

The place oozes a comfortable family-run vibe. The owners art collection creates a clubby throw-back feel (as appeared many of the patrons) and the tables arrayed around the front window on the second floor have a nice view of the Bar Harbor street scape. I'm not a big fan of carpeted restaurants, but it sort of suits the place. Not... More

I cannot describe how good each and every bite of Galyn's haddock is. The sauce is delicious and when you bite the little teardrop peppers, the flavor is over the top amazing! This meal is something that you'll think about long after you leave the restaurant! Please go to Galyn's and order this meal! The only thing that will be... More

Galyn's restaurant in Bar Harbor is a great find! The prices are reasonable and the food was delicious. The view of the harbor from the second floor is very pleasant. Try it. You'll like it.

Galyn's is a cut above many Bar Harbor restaurants. Try the broiled haddock sandwich - it's a little hard to eat, but is fresh and delicious. Great views across the park to the harbor - try to get a table on the small porch or by the window in the upstairs dining room.

Had a wonderful lunch at Galyn's. We sat by one of the front windows and the view over the harbor was fantastic. Our lunch was excellent. Had a marvelous fish sandwich and my friend has a great bowl of clam chowder. We have eaten there three times and it is has always been pleasant, relaxing, and good food.
