I would encourage anyone to eat here. We had a great time. I would recommend the fried haddock sandwich.
Wow, we found a gem right downtown within walking distance of our hotel. Food was excellent and plenty of it for the price. Many locals eat here so you know it is great. Salmon sandwich was very tasty and a very large portion served with French fries or a large salad and I mean really large. We will return again... More
Thank you so much for your kind review. The Salmon sandwich is one of my favorites. Have a great stay in Bar Harbor and enjoy your happy hour drinks! Heather Sorokin, owner. More
Great value here ( looking at cost vs quality ) with friendly service. Beer selection is more than adequate ( ask for Allagash white ) and their pub fare is better than you'd expect. My favorite is the fish sandwich. Chowders ( eg. corn chowder ) are also good options.. If you're walking around B.H. looking for a place to... More
Excellent food and service in downtown Bar Harbor. Always a convivial atmosphere with friendly and fun staff.
Stopped in for some beers and chowder to watch the Patriots game during a weekend trip this winter with my boyfriend. Not too many places are open in Bar Harbor in the winter. It was lucky for us this one still was! The Thirsty Whale has a great local atmosphere. The bartender seemed to know most of the patrons and... More
My boyfriend and I flew to Bar Harbor from Pittsburgh (he's a pilot and own an airplane) -- This restaurant was so amazing!! It was exactly what we needed after a 3 hour flight! I had a dirty martini (which was the best one Ive ever had) -- And a bowl of their clam chowder - It was delicious!!!! They... More
Thank you so much for your kind review. There is nothing better than an ice cold dirty martini! We hope to see you the next time you are in town. Heather Sorokin, owner More
This is where all the local people go for lunch and it was easy to see why. Although small, and we had a long wait as we are a larger group, it was worth it! The menu had many great choices. The food was fresh, hot and plenty. Will go again!
Walking around Bar Harbor town center we found this spot and thought we would give a try for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Had some big screens for some college football which was nice. The place was busy but the host kept the dinning room clean and ready for guest and we were sat very quickly Had a pretty decent... More
I am glad you enjoyed our restaurant. I apologize for the slow service. There are only a few year round establishments open and during the holidays we do get very busy. Since we are operating with our scaled back winter crew we can get backed up. Thank you for your understanding and I hope you enjoyed your stay in Bar... More
We came here seeking fresh lobster that wouldn't break the bank. It didn't disappoint. We were able to get lobster around $10 that was delicious. We also were able to enjoy the locally brewed root beer. The only downside was we got some strange looks for not ordering alcohol, even though we were at a table and not the bar.... More
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your lobster roll. I am however sorry that you thought you received strange looks for not ordering alcohol. I hope it did not make you uncomfortable. I am not sure what happened but we have quite a few people that come in and don't order an alcoholic drink, especially during... More
Went for a going away lunch . Was not disappointed. Had a great time with great friends . The waitress was very cheerful and full of info on the food and specials of the day.
