Tasty & Great View

We had a great time here. Nice wine & food. Lobster stew was delicious along with a very fresh salad. Of course the lobster tails were amazing. Didn't have dessert...could not eat anymore. After diner, it was low tide so we took a nice stroll.

What a wonderful place to have dinner. The views of the water and the Bar Harbor area were breathtaking. The meal was very good too. WE also found out that this is one of Barbara Bush's favorite restaurants and she likes to sit out and enjoy the views as we did. The staff was kind enough to take some pictures... More

Had crab quiche and the fish and chips. They were both excellent as was the service. You have your choice of inside or outside dining right by the water. It was a pretty day so we chose the outside table. It was very nice. We wish that we had time to return and try some more of their menu items.

The Chart Room restaurant is located on Rt. 3 in Hulls Cove, in a renovated house consisting of three dining areas - the main room, screened porch and an outside patio all with a water view. We dined on surf (whole lobster) and turf (two filets), with a baked potato and mixed vegetables (scrumptious!), chicken Alfredo, with a side salad... More

The service was really fast and food was good. We had the fried haddock and the batter was light and crisp. The green peas seemed like peas from the freezer though and that's why they didn't get an excellent from us. Overall a good value for your money.

If you view my other reviews from this trip, I can be picky; but this was our best eat on the island. On our final night, we needed to satisfy that craving for fried clams. I googled best fried clams on the island and the chart room kept coming up. It was a Thursday night and the restaurant was fairly... More

Seem to end our vacation each year with dinner at the Chart Room. All in our party enjoyed our meals from broiled haddock, fried haddock, grilled scallops and seafood linguine. Excellent service....ask for Leah....😀

We enjoyed a simple but delicious lunch here while enjoying the view of the water and coastline. The service was fast, friendly, and very efficient. The lobster roll was well-made, and the warm blueberry pie and blueberry ice cream were outstanding! It was one of our favorite meals in Bar Harbor.
