My tip: ask to be seated upstairs, with a view from the window, overlooking the habour. There is a wonderful bay window, which, when dining at dusk, is a spectacular view. Gluten free items are indicated on the menu. I had the shrimp cocktail, three lobster tails, and an indian pudding. All were really nice, and not especially expensive considering... More

My wife and I dined at Galyn's on September 13 and we were a little disappointed. The service was excellent. The ambience was great. Somehow our meal just missed the mark. It was our first visit to Maine and we wanted to indulge in some wonderful Maine lobster. I ordered the lobster linguini and my wife had the sauteed lobster.... More

I had eaten at Galyn's back in April of 2006 - had a great dining experience so was looking forward to eating here again during my recent visit to Bar Harbor (Thursday, September 18 - Saturday, September 20, 2014). Went in for lunch upon my arrival in the area. Was seated immediately, upstairs, toward the back of the restaurant, but... More

We had a lovely meal after a long day out on the island. Easily accommodated a party of 6. We had everything from lobster bisque to the grilled pork chops to the haddock. Everything was great. And so was the service. Great kids menu too. Not snobby. All around a nice experience. We will definitely be back.

We were lucky enough to be seated outside, with a great view of the harbor and all the people walking around. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The lobster bisque was amazingly wonderful, and we also enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and salmon sandwich. We listened to someone at a neighboring table rave about the blueberry-apple crisp, so we decided... More

Popped in to Galyn's for dinner on 9/10/14 on a spur of the moment and were seated at a table with a gorgeous window view of the harbor. We were able to watch the Margaret Todd departing and returning from her sunset cruise. Our server was wonderful and the food was very good. They offered an early dining special on... More

While a little pricey, the food was great and worth it. Friendly and attentive staff. Restaurant is in a beautiful old building and has a casual atmosphere. Highly recommend the prime rib.

We had a lovely evening view of the harbor. We had reservations for 2 at 7:30 pm. Our experience turned out very well; as we ordered well and had a wonderful waitress. We did not get the before 6 price break but, we almost never eat that early. After our dinner we hurried on back to the Bluenose Greatroom to... More

Had lunch here as part of a tour of Bar Harbor. Food was good, nothing to complain about. Seems like a nice little place in a beautiful little town. Would certainly visit again.
