Terrace Grill is excellent for alfresco dining on a warm summer evening.

My partner (now wife) and I had dinner ten years ago at the Terrace Grill and sought it out on a recent return visit to Bar Harbor. Both times the weather could not have been better. The heat of the day was gone, but there was still enough warmth between seven and sunset to be comfortable dining... read more

Seafood is delicious but not a broad menu. Came here for lobster. No brainer. It was excellent. The lobster bisque was very delicious. Steamers were priced a bit high for a dozen. Great view of the harbor but even in mid July you might need a warmer. The haddock was flakey and delicious.

We stopped in Bar Harbor to eat lunch after visiting Acadia National Park. We liked this place because it had outdoor seating right next to the harbor. The views were great with all the small islands and boats. I had the caprese sandwich and my husband ordered the lobster roll. My husband had eaten several of the lobster rolls while... More

We were on vacation with 2 other couples from Texas. We had purchased a package deal with our stay at Bar Harbor Inn and it came with a Lobster Bake from The Terrace Grille. One great thing about eating at this restaurant was the beautiful view of the harbor. We were a little apprehensive about eating a lobster from the... More

Stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn 13 years ago and now whenever we return, even if we don't stay at the inn, we never miss an opportunity to eat the Terrace Grill. Best Blueberry Pie on Mt. Desert Island! The cinnamon/sugar crust is out of this world. Tried a Lobster Roll there this year and it was yummy as well!... More

Pros: Outside seating, great view of the harbor. Cons: just about everything else about it. The chowder was good, but luke-warm. Before ordering the haddock with the lobster sauce, I wanted to make sure the haddock was fresh, not "fresh-frozen." I was told it was fresh and I believed it until my first bite. Rice was undercooked, vegetables were overcooked,... More

The setting is perfect, right off the ocean. The sounds, smells and sights are wonderful. We had a late lunch of lobster that was great. Bar menu is very appealing. Service was supurb.

Terrace Grille had the greatest atmosphere. We had an outside table facing the water. It was so picturesque. Our server Richard was great. As typical tourist we had him take a family picture and he was so gracious and attentive. The food was wonderful. I had the crab quesadilla and blueberry pie. Everyone cleaned their plate. I would highly suggest... More

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.
