We ate at the Chart Room Restaurant twice while in Bar Harbor in early October 2014.. We liked the food and received good service from the waitstaff. One of the meals was the "Early Bird" lobster special. I got my money's worth and I learned the difference between a soft-shelled lobster and a... read more

I thought it was ok, my daughters were not so pleased. The view is tremendous, but the seating and food was only average.

This restaurant was just down the hill from our motel, the Sea Breeze and the front desk clerk recommended it. We love the seafood. I had a crab meat appetizer that was very good. The lobster was amazing!

Excellent atmosphere; amazingly tasty and satisfying meals; Seafood Scampi is particularly delicious, and all of the lobster, shrimp and scallop dishes are wonderful to one's palate; The blueberry pie is a crowning jewel to top-off an excellent dining experience.

I loved their hot crab dip and clam chowder. We got it to go and went back to the Sea Breeze to sit on our ocean view porch and eat.

Best Restaurant in Bar Harbor. It is right on the water, Frenchman's Bay, just outside of all the business of Bar Harbor.. Nice outside seating, the inside of this restaurant is so nice, you would never know from the outside! Great Service and Awesome food, with a nice variety for all. Make sure you make a reservation, usually busy!

Enjoyed our first dinner in Bar Harbor at this restaurant which was recommended by the host from our B&B. The food was good,the restaurant was very busy service was very good although we did feel slightly rushed. The price was reasonable and we would visit again.

Not only was it convenient , but the seafood was really really good and fresh , and not overpriced for what you get, like so many other places in the area. The owner and chef was also very friendly , stopping... More

We came for dinner here just because it was convenient, we were staying at the Colony just a short walk away. We were seated on the window in the lower room and had a nice view of the bay. We had the crab cakes for an appetizer and the small Maine lobsters (a pair of tails probably 5-6 ounces each).... More
