My wife and I came here in the afternoon after craving some Maine blueberry pie. This restaurant did not disappoint. The blueberry pie was warm and delicious. It came with local blueberry ice cream as well which was fantastic. All in all, a great experience!

After driving 6+ hours to Bar Harbor, we checked in to our cottage and went on the hunt for food. We walked along downtown Bar Harbor near the water. Everywhere seemed to be packed and we ended up checking out Rupununi. The selection was the typical "bar and grill" food. The food was mediocre as was the service. The building... More

Ok.. so this was one great lunch. Off season, no crowd, great service and great food for both a vegetarian and a seafood lover. I can only imagine what it would be like if it was during peak season, but for this trip... perfection!

We had a party of ten off of a cruise ship, five couples. We were seated around a booth which had plenty of room for all of us. The waiter's name was Piotr. He graciously divided the check up for us. The food was plentiful and good, but the clam chowder was barely warm. I heard someone from another table... More

My wife and I had lunch on the patio after returning from biking in Acadia. I had lobster bisque which was rich and creamy and the shrimp appetizer - she had the beet and goat cheese salad special, which she raved about to people for the remainder of our trip. I would go back.

I chose to eat here based on the large outdoor seating area. Great spot to grab a little table and people watch in the cute downtown area. I had a local beer, clam chowder and a lobster roll. This was my first meal in New England so I do not have a lot to compare against. That being said, I... More

The Stuffed Haddock was delicious. French fries had rosemary on them and were good. They have a large Gluten free menu but the gluten plate was served cold and missing the sauce. Crab cakes were good but the app is small. Service was okay. Slow even though hardly anyone there.

We came in here several times during our stay. We only had beers and sat at bar. The bar tenders were friendly and the beers cold. The food looked good coming out, but we did not eat here. Will visit again and try the food!!

Browsed around town to see what looked good and we chose here based on their extensive menu. It's got a great location with outdoor seating though we chose to sit inside as it was a bit cool outside. Inside was bright and clean with nice décor. The food was good and the beer selection was adequate. Service started out well... More

We knew ahead of time what to expect in Bar Harbor for restaurants, the ones really touted were overpriced, in our minds, and crowded when we looked at them. Mind you, we were two visitors from the Caribbean Princess, with 3,100 passengers and there were 3,600 more on the Brilliance of the Seas. 98% of the passengers were on shore... More
