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.

My husband and I went to this restaurant three times during our stay at the cottages right next door. 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

The view was outstanding. They offer a full menu. It is located away from the busy downtown area. Friendly staff.

We went twice to The Chart Room because the seafood is absolutely wonderful. It is an extremely popular place, understandably so booking is essential, but once in, you are really looked after by incredibly efficient and friendly staff. We would highly recommend a visit.

The food was of a high quality and the menu was varied and interesting. We ate a couple of times here and on both occasions service was pleasant and swift - which suited us but may be a little too quick for some! Plenty of choice - reasonably priced.
