The food was great, the staff was friendly and accommodating, we requested the rooftop, and there was an odd layout of narrow staircases to get there, but that is what you'd expect from an early 1900's home converted to restaurant. Everything was surprisingly well priced. We were happy with portion sizes and everything else about the place.

Maybe it was because Jack Russell’s was just across the street from our hotel, but our son and I had dinner there a few times (JR’s opens at 5 pm), but it was an extremely pleasant experience. The owner, Tom, made us feel right at home. The food was excellent and just right for the atmosphere (beery) and the weather... More

Stopped in Monday night with my wife, daugher, her husand and our grandson. We were served by the owner, who made us feel at home right away. The atmosphere is pleasant, and as the evening wore on, you could tell that even for a Monday this restaurant is popular. All had either the ribeye or strip. They all were cooked... More

Loved our first trip to Bar Harbour. Did not enjoy Jack Russel''s Steak House. The Lazy Lobster was an insult in overall presentation and amount of lobster. My husband had the prime steak and it was just allright. Next night we had dinner in town and was much more impressed. Unhappy customer.

I'm going to go ahead and say what's on my mind- most of the reviews here are written by whiny babies. This is a brew pub, it has a very pleasant informal atmosphere. The steaks are prepared very well, especially the tenderloin steak tips. Personally, as a local, I order the burgers a lot, and those are always just how... More

My filet was delicious and melted like butter in my mouth. The price was a little high,but the quality was superb. The service was excellent and the surroundings were very pleasant.I had a Blueberry Margarita that was delicious!

Jack Russell's is a brew pub and they brew their own beer on site. It's very good, esp. the IPA. There's a dining room, but the room with the bar is a lot of fun. Locals like to frequent the pub. Fun place to me people, talk and laugh.

Not the best Steak House I've ever been to, but the food was pretty tasty and the décor nice enough. After a long day of hiking in the park, I did enjoy my dinner at Jack Russell's. Bar Harbor has many upscale places to eat - which is why Jack Russell's probably has a hard time keeping up with all... More
