Definitely try the lobster mac & cheese. Everything is actually good, but that is to die for, literally. I think it's soaked in butter prior to going into the mac and cheese, so you literally could die, but it's worth it.

A friend recommended this place and of course we had to try it. We were there as a stop on our fall cruise on a very cold and rainy day. There were four of us and we all had something different. Three had clam chowder which I tasted and it was very good but I had the Lobster Bisque (all... More

I had the salmon our second night in Bar Harbor and after that, wouldn't go any other place! Normally I'm quite adventurous, but this could not be topped. Plus the prices were very reasonable.

West Street Cafe is not a fancy restaurant, mostly booths and tables and very little in the way of decor. Where it really shines is in the food, service and spotless dining room. I first had lunch here and it was so good I came back for dinner and had the lobster. It was cooked perfectly and priced very reasonable.... More

Best Lobster Roll. Ever. So every year we make the trek up to coastal ME. And every year we hunt for a decent lobster roll. Most of the time, we leave disappointed. But not this year. My parents stopped in here on a cold, rainy day in October. They told us all about the excellent, superb food, service, cleanliness, etc.... More

Went there with another couple. Everyone said you had to have a lobster roll while in Bar Harbor. So we did. Neither of us are big lobster fans, so it was ok. But now we've been there tired that and can check it off our bucket list. Service was very good and prices were ok.

Great menu with lots of choices and even the best hamburgers when you tire of seafood. Fast with call ahead orders and a cute dining room. Very affordable for the amount of food you receive. Loved it!

We were here for a day on a cruise stop. Locals recommended and we were not disappointed. Great clam chowder, freshest lobster--and very good! The blueberry pie was wonderful! If back in this area, we will definitely go again. Great service.

We really weren't up to a full meal, so we just had the clam chowder which was very good and a piece of blueberry pie which was good, but not better than mine!!!
