On the water with a great view

This out side dining experience is the best on the island. The food was very good, service was great and we got to walk on the shore path after dinner.

Right on the water at the Bar Harbor Inn this is a terrific place for lunch in good weather. I have never had anything I didn't like. They do seem to change their menu every so often which is good. There is a nice variety of seafood, salads, soups etc. Something for everyone. I particularly like the cheese board.

The view is wonderful! We came for dinner our first night in Bar Harbor, enjoyed the sunset and mojitos and kept coming back. The flavored mojitos are amazing! They kept us coming back each night. We were able to enjoy the sunset and watch the boats while we ate.

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!
