We ate here our first night in town on recommendation of the owner of the b&b we were staying in. The food was good but it was expensive. If you don't care about the price, try it.

We really enjoyed this restaurant since the food was excellent, the service terrific, and the prices reasonable. The managed to get us in without a reservation and sat upstairs which is recommended. Great seafood choices with lobster of course a staple in Bar Harbor but also nice steaks as well.

For years we have been going to Galyn's for dinner when we are in Bar Harbor. I hate to even say anything for fear of letting everyone in on a great find, but their menu is so consistently good. I especially have to say how awesome the "Mediterranean Scallops" are. This is My Husband's and my favorite dish there. The... More

Galyn's was recommended by the Chamber of Commerce---it was excellent! It is located in an old boarding house, and is quite charming. Thanksgiving dinner was excellent--well-prepared and nicely served. The host added a certain ambiance and told stories as he escorted us to our table.

We had dinner at Galyn's as part of a Bar Harbor Inn getaway package which included dinner for two including soup/salad, entree, and desert. Our table was upstairs in front of a window with a beautiful view of the harbor. Our waitress was very knowledgeable, gracious, and efficient. We began by sharing an appetizer of baked brie served with a... More

We had our Thanksgiving meal here this year. We had a party of six. Four adults and two children The service was great but we thought it was overpriced, especially the deserts for what you get. For the two of us it was $80 with the tip and this did not include drinks as we drank water. I wish they... More

We were late in the season and had a little bit of a hard time finding a suitable place to eat for us. We chose Galyn's and didn't regret it. Great service and great food.

Lovely staff and a very homey, pleasant decor. The food however could be so much better - its not neglectful, just incredibly unambitious. My wife and I ordered Bisque (OK) and Scallops (not so OK) for starters. $10 for three miniscule scallops is unacceptable - we come from an area known for scallops, those were not scallops, they were the...

Because we were in Bar Harbor in November when many places were closed, we went to Galyn's after our tiny wedding ceremony. Though I had called in advance (front desk person was rude), and though recommended, the food was fair and the service, while well intended, was slow (our server seemed very uneasy).....I wondered how they manage in-season. We had... More

We had a dinner party at Galyn's last weekend for a friend going away. The food was very good as was the wine list, both of which I found to be reasonably priced. The service was fantastic! Our server, Ben, was very attentive and gracious. We did not wait for a single item, he made sure all our cocktails and... More
