Had my 5th dinner there last weekend. My Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection @ Med Rare!! I tried the horseradish pesto this time. I usually enjoy the grilled asparagus. The fresh-cut fries are still fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful as always. The place is casual, but teems with first-class food and staff. I savored at Precipice Pale... More

We really enjoyed our visit--we went one evening when there was a power outage, and the staff rallied to provide salads while we waited, humor to keep us feeling good, and drinks. The surf and turf was good, with delicious shrimp cocktails. We will definitely go back!

Easily the best steakhouse in the area. Food is great, atmosphere is comfortable and also convenient to to the Bar Harbor Motel, where we stay. Just a quick walk and you're at dinner.

We really enjoyed our meal here; steaks were cooked as ordered, tender and delicious. Our waitress was busy but friendly, efficient and courteous. Loved the pretzels and Maine mustard; was a pleasant surprise from bread. Was not the thrilled the dinner salads were extra but otherwise very satisfied with the experience.

As we entered, the staff hardly greeted us. We had made a reservation for 4, but they had prepared a table for 2. We ended up sitting on a high table with stools, with our children (6 & 7 years old). Despite this, the steaks were great. Local beer was good. They have a kids menu. No books/toys... anything for... More

Having eaten seafood for several days in a row, we were feeling like a steak. Someone we spoke with in town had suggested the Jack Russell. We thought the pretzels and mustard were a great touch. The steaks were tender, tasty and cooked as we had ordered. Service was good and friendly, but not stellar. This has nothing to do... More

Jack Russell's was reasonably priced, fresh, delicious food. An intimate restaurant that looks like it was converted from a house to a restaurant, the ambiance was nice and the service was great. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want high quality food at a reasonable price.

We ate here one night and loved it so much we came back the next night! The crab cakes were hands down the freshest crab cakes I've ever had and the filet was melt in your mouth. We topped it off with a satisfying creme brulee. Top notch. Hidden gem!

Good food, a little pricy, good steaks. Service was good, and had good decor. Next to barharbor motel and boat tours, near main street on route 3.

Lovely service and excellent food - the local beer (blueberry - yum!) was amazing. You should call ahead for a reservation (they asked us - and sat us even when we didn't have one - but it filled up fast). I loved it. One of the only establishments open when Hurricane Arthur hit. You won't go wrong with any of... More
