I chose this restaurant because of the blueberry daiquiri, and it was wonderful! For dinner, I had salmon with dill sauce and my husband had a lobster dish. Both were very good! The server was attentive and helpful. Great meal.

we ate here twice and liked both times. Fish dishes were really tasty and the staff was really nice too. They offer a wine special for a low price but you have to ask for it as it is not show on the menu. Desserts are good as well but you have to save some space in your stomach.

We stopped here to celebrate our 25th anniversary and wanted the steak and lobster meal that was offered on their website but was not on the menu in the restaurant we asked the waitress and she checked with the owner and they were able to serve us our choice and it was very delicious. Definitely recommend this restaurant. Food, service,... More

The Poor Boy restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The restaurant was easy to walk to. I definitely recommend making reservations since the restaurant gets quite busy. The lobster was good and the lobster bisque was excellent.

We enjoyed our meals and the service was good. I feel that expectations for a very good dining experience were met. Would return.

I loved this place, I tried the Lobster bisque at every Bar Harbor restaurant I ate at and they by far had the best! With so many choices for food in Bar Harbor I still had to eat at Poor boys twice because they had so many good things on their menu.

We were seated in a sort-of conservatory area at the front/street side of the restaurant, and unfortunately were a bit cold as the wind was whistling through gaps in the windows. The food was good though. Only one toilet available for the whole restaurant, which is not so good.

Delicious food and drink. Was pleasantly surprised when the person who cleaned the tables, kept the spray bottle close to the table top so as not to disturb those sitting near the table he was cleaning. It was a very thoughtful thing to do. The waitress was awesome and very helpful. Just an all around wonderful dining experience.
