The steak (Filet) was excellent (ordered by my wife) and also the Chicken Parm., which I ordered. Excellent service One complaint: we were located at the top of the steps, which seemed OK at first, but got annoying after 3 different employees made several trips up & down.

As a New Yorker and world traveler who loves both steak and lobster, having had the best of both in various countries, I must say that this unassuming restaurant more then held it's own against those highly rated steak houses and the lobster pounds in the area.

Tired and hungry we ate here as it was next door to our hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and being early it was quiet. They apparently only serve their own 5-6 brews and were out of two of them, but the ones we chose were fine. My husband's filet was good, my baked haddock was served in a... More

This restaurant was next door to our hotel, the Bar Harbor Motel. We went there after a long day at Acadia. The burgers were great and the staff friendly. Prices were also very good.

The food was excellent, staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was very cool. We sat upstairs in what used to be a bedroom in an old house converted into a restaurant.
