I could have sworn I wrote a review for Jack Russell months ago, but I digress. We've been going to BH for at least 18 years. We've been to Jack's a few times and it was always just ok. We haven't been there in about 4 or 5 years. My dad wanted steak so we decided to give Jack Russell's... read more

We had a wonderful experience for New Years Eve. The menu was limited, but there were still so many choices. The food was excellent. Will go here again.

I was visiting Bar Harbor to hike in Acadia for a long weekend, saw this place had really good reviews of the Roadtrippers App, so I decided to take myself on a date and try it out. There was a bit of a wait for a table, but I was by myself, so I decided to sit at the bar.... More

The restaurant was so warm and decorated beautifully for the holidays. The waitress was so sweet and very attentive. I had a burger topped with roasted peppers,garlic and provolone...so delicious. My Burger was cooked perfectly, the hand cut fries were to die for, then the cheesecake completed the meal! Definitely going back!

The place was charming. It's an old house turned into a restaurant. The warm pretzels served before the meal were awesome. The service was below "par" and he did screw up our order. He told us the "specials" for the night and we both ordered the same "special", not a difficult order to place as it was just two of... More

This restaurant was next door to our motel in Bar Harbor so it was an easy location for us. We were very well pleased with the meals we chose. The steaks were very tender and the fish one of us had was tasty as well. I would recommend this restaurant

The place was crowded which would seem to be a good sign -- but not sure why... We had a drink at the bar--- server good considering how busy she was, and were then seated in the back. We got warm pretzels on our table (nice touch) but things went down-hill from there... My husband ordered a filet so he... More

Stayed at Atlantic Oceanside across street. I work at a family run established business and this one has no pride in service/restaurant industry. The crab cakes are average. Burgers are mediocre that come with frozen not home made hand cut as they claim,worst ever. (Reheated McDonalds fries) Caesar Salad was gross. Junk dressing salad came with overpriced sideof teriyaki beef... More

We have had nothing but hand cut fries for the last ten years. The new crop of 'Green Thumb' potatoes from Fryeburg, Maine are among the best we've ever had. It is too bad you did not care for our fries, but we only fry fresh potatoes from Maine. More

It had been a long day of sight seeing and it was dinner time.I drove right by this place and then it hit me! Jack Russell's!!! I've had Jack Russell Terrier's for 25 years, so I turned around and went back to check it out! We went in and discovered the walls were covered with wonderful, delightful JRT's. Our waiter... More

I ordered a 1-1/2 lb broiled lobster. The waitress came back twice to ask me if i wanted broiled or boiled, then brought a small boiled lobster. I sent it back and they stuck it under the broiler, still in shell, and burned it a bit. The waitress said that was all they could do. I ate it anyway because... More
