In our recent visit to Bar Harbor, Maine, we chose the West Street Cafe for dinner one night. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The shrimp was delicious! At the end of the meal, we had coffee and bluberry pie. Both were excellent! All dining in Bar Harbor is a little pricey but this was worth it!

I think we first ate here in 1998 and we have come back over the years. This was the first time the lobster was over boiled. The cole slaw tasted a bit odd so we didn't finish it. My salad was very good. Blueberry pie was also very good. Lobster Scampi was good. Service as always was very friendly.

Great cafe with a homey feel. Great service. I loved the fish n chips. My husband thought the mussels were amazing and his lobster was delicious as well.

The service was terrific and the food was more than we expected. We caught the early bird special, so did scores of others. The meal closed out a wonderful stay in Bar Harbor.

After reading the reviews my husband and I decided to try the West Street Cafe. We were not disappointed. Arrived at about 6:45 and waited 10 minutes for a table. Service was attentive and the restaurant was clean. I had the stuffed lobster tail and it was amazing. The blueberry pie was perfect with a homemade crust. We would highly... More

Great meal, great service. Got there in time for the early bird special and had the Lobster dinner with clam chowder and blueberry pie - one of the best pies I've ever tasted. The blueberry wine was also very good. If I ever come back to Bar Harbor, I'm coming back to West Street Cafe!

Stopped in to the West Street Cafe looking for lobster on our first evening in Bar Harbor. This restaurant was recommended by our inn keeper who said it had good food for a reasonable price in a casual atmosphere. She was right on all counts. We had just missed arriving in time for their early bird specials, but they allowed... More

Excellent food for a reasonable price. The lobster rolls are outstanding--we tried several different places and these were among the best! Delicious chowder, too. And the fresh blueberry pie--yum!
