This nice little cafe along West Street could be easily overlooked by travelers who stick to the main drag. Packed in the same area with luxury hotels, this restaurant offers a nice variety of meals in a pleasant (and remodeled?) setting. Three of us had the broiled scallops and all agreed they were very good. Likewise the person who had... More

What a wonderful spot for lunch. Great service, outstanding food, terrific atmosphere and good value. Menu is somewhat limited but every item our group of four had was fresh and cooked to perfection.

Quick service. Jimmy gave great recommendation for local beers. We had lobster salad and the downeast special (lobster, chowder, slaw and blueberry pie). Salad was delicious, lobster was tasty. Pie was fantastic; almost as good as huckleberry pie. Casual atmosphere, a really good value. Would definitely return.

Went for the early bird special. My wife had the lobster and I tried the Chicken Parmigiana. Both meals were average, not bad but not one to rave over either. Service was excellent

Food was good. Casual place. Long wait. I ordered the Lobster dinner that came with clam chowder, corn on the cob & a slice of blueberry pie. Lobster can be picked for an additional $4. Kids were happy with children's menu. Store sells great shirts.

Food and service were good but there are better places in Bar Harbor, especially considering the wait time. But for the price, you can't go wrong.

They have a lobster dinner special w chowder and homemade blueberry pie. It is a MUST and it's very reasonably priced. You can't go wrong at this restaurant.

We had dinner here and we had the Lobster Roll Special and it was really good. My husband had the stuffed Haddock and it was great. I have to say it was a good price for the food and if you get there early there are savings on Early Bird Specials. I had the blueberry pie and it was great... More

The staff at West Street Café is so sweet, the food is tasty and the view is amazing. The outside seating is perfect on a nice summer evening. The Café Delight and stuffed mushrooms are a favorite of many!
