My husband and I ate here for the early diner's (before 6pm) special. It included a 1 1/4 pound lobster, bread, rice, and broccoli for $19.99. This was the first time either of us had ate a whole lobster. The lobster was good, although a lot of work and was not very filling. I was not impressed with the sides... More

I have been to Bar Harbor and the New England area quite often...the food here was sub par for a seafood restaurant located right on the ocean. The lobster bisque was bland and yet expensive at $8 for a small cup, the stuffed crab mushrooms were as small as your thumbnail and there was barely any room for stuffing... Let... More

Service was very good. The menu has a good selection of dishes. The salads were outstanding with the best ranch dressing in Bar Harbor. Entres were prepared as ordered and tasty.

Good food, great service. Our waiter was very good helping my wife thorough the menu with her food allergies and checked with the chef on every questions. That is real service! Nice view of the Harbor. Very popular locally so you may have to wait. we had haddock and shrimp and they were fresh and delicious.

Our B&B recommended this place and it lived up to their recommendation. Service, food, and view were excellent. Prices are the same as you'd expect for this type of food - reasonable.

Stopped here first on our trip to Bar Harbor after walking downtown for a bit. Lobster rolls were excellent overlooking the harbor. Service was very good and had a very pleasant experience.

Came here on recommendation of motel lodging staff. We had great window seating in a porch-like atmosphere..close but inviting. Our waitress was exceptionally pleasant, funny and delightful. She made the experience worthwhile. We both had the lobster special which was perfectly done and the clam chowder was superb. Very nice evening in this restaurant.

Ask for a window seat that overlooks the harbor and main street and tell them if it is a special occasion. We were a little early and sat at the bar for a few minutes and ordered a bottle of wine recommended by the bar keep; her recommendation was right on and we are trying to find this reasonably priced...

We lunched on the porch with an admittedly spectacular view of the harbor. The food, however, did not match the superior setting. Crab cakes were chewy and stringy. Squash cakes were too heavy on the cilantro. The vegetables and starch were unremarkable. The waitress however was fantastic, as was the hostess who seated us.

Very nice place, right at the harbor. Pretty interior, friendly and efficient staff, and the food was delicious. Not the typical noisy bar with bar food. Here one can get a real meal with a peaceful dining experience. So glad we didn't miss it. Crab cakes, mussels, yum.
