The food is quite good, but the best item on the menu here is the view, especially at sunset. Seeing the light dancing on the water and feeling the gentle summer breeze, you will know you are in Maine paradise.

We had THE best dinner there a couple nights ago. WE are in Maine for a couple months every fall/summer so we go to Bar Harbor on a regular basis. We've always love sitting outside at the Terrace Grille. We take our small dog with us and they are pet friendly and you cannot beat the view. THE best place... More

I am sure the food is good and I know the view is unbelievable, but I couldn't eat here on principle because the service was that rude. When I called the number listed on the site to make a reservation, the call was answered by the hotel front desk who couldn't have sounded more uninterested in me if they tried.... More

A while after arriving in Bar Harbor we kind of drifted towards this restaurant, with a privileged view...we had been told The Reading Room was really good by our hotel staff (one floor up); however we preferred to sit outside this wonderful summer afternoon. The view was just fantastic, the service was warm, we had a great late lunch/early dinner.... More

The restaurant is located on the lawn of a hotel. The view is magnificent. The food was good and the service fast and courteous. Prices were reasonable. My wife and I had sea food and the amounts were generous and well cooked.

We ate outside at the Outdoor Terraces Restaurant which is a different menu than inside. The outside tables are a nice view of the water. The prices are reasonable. We had the lobster bisque which was very good. I had the lobster roll since I was on a mission and this was one of 5 I had in 2 days.... More

We enjoyed our lunch at the Terrace Grille. I had the Lobster Salad and my husband had the blackened haddock sandwich. Both were great. The outdoor setting and the view were fantastic. We would go again!

Came here on a Sunday night around 9 for dinner and we're able to get a spot right on the water. The food was pretty good and the view was great!

My husband and I enjoyed an outdoor table here after walking along the Shore Path and viewing the beautiful boats, scenery and sunset. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. We both ordered a delicious bowl of creamy Lobster bisque. They had a blueberry sangria that was tasty as well. I was disappointed in the crab cakes I ordered. They... More

OK, so you can't walk more than 50 yards in Bar Harbor without finding a worthwhile place to enjoy lobster. But this is different, sitting under an umbrella, right along Frenchman's Bay, watching the sun set and the ships sail by. We ate here as part of a Bar Harbor Inn package -- all we paid for that night was... More
