Dinner

We went here for dinner. We were seated near the bar, not told about the other seating options. Food was very tasty. Would have liked a little better atmosphere.

Very good food but a little pricey. The waitress was pleasant. Nice to have a good place to go if you want something other than lobster/seafood. They did serve seafood too though if someone in your dinner party wants seafood. I would recommend and I would go again.

Jack Russell’s was within walking distance of our hotel and is located in a renovated house with interesting nooks, crannies, and steps to the second floor. We stopped at this trendy restaurant for a late-night fare. We were seated in the bar/lounge area and dined on lobster cocktail (scrumptious!), crab cakes (succulent!) and adult beverages. The Host and wait staff... More

Stopped at this restaurant for dinner. No host at the desk. We waited along with several other couples for more than a few minutes trying to find someone who worked there. When host finally showed up he said he would get us seated within 5 minutes. We could see the place was packed. No tables even close to finished and... More

Very good food. But pricey. Pretzels Served before meal are amazing!! Best soft pretzels I've had in a long time. Nice atmosphere. Save room for the blueberry cobbler because it's amazing!!! Would've given 5 stars but had to give 4 because of price but good food.

In seven days of Maine tourist towns this was our most expensive meal. NY Strip was very flavorful but came our rare instead of medium rare as ordered. Lazy lobster was good but nothing different than the many other lobster joints in Maine. Fish & chips had a lot of breading and my daughter acted about half of I them.... More

We tried this place because it was literally steps from our motel. While we enjoyed the food (my daughter especially enjoyed her filet mignon) I thought the prices were outrageously high. And that's saying something since I come from the NY metropolitan area where prices are crazy. I had a salad, and pita with hummus and a sundried tomato pesto... More

A superb place to eat. I could have just eaten the crab cakes for all eternity. Oh, and the warm pretzel type dinner bread is uniquely wonderful. A for sure "don't want to miss" kind of place on any visit into Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island, Maine. Steak was top shelf. Atmosphere, although small still very comfortable.
