Superb crab soup

Our waiter was super friendly and helped us find a dairy free option for our son. The cream of crab soup was amazing. The seafood Alfredo was tasty but not the best sauce I've ever had. I would recommend a lunch stop just to get the soup!

We only had time to carry out an order of fried clams, but they were so amazing, that I would not hesitate to return for a full meal. Tender, meaty clams and no grease. Worth visiting while in Bar Harbor

The crab cakes, chowder and lobster dinner were terrific. Trey our waiter was great and kept the meal moving at a good pace. Arrive before 6:30 to get the early specials

Nice place, right in the heart of town. The food was not great, but still pricey and they charge for soda refills. Not a terrible place, but given that we only had a few days here there were many better choices.

This place was recommended to us from folks who vacation in Bar Harbor annually. It was a good recommendation. Very competent & friendly waiter named Drew. The Maine sampler dinner was excellent as well as the shrimp scampi and reasonably priced relative to the other local restaurants we ate at. The hostess was young lady who was nice looking and...

This place 3 years ago was out of this world! Now, it's not worth going in. First, the prices are horribly high (which it was before and I have no problem spending a lot if the food is worth it--this isn't). Second, the service was terrible. We asked for ketchup for our fries 3 times, finally, I had to ask... More
