Great ambiance, good food!!!

This place is right on the water and probably the best atmosphere of any restaurant in all of Bar Harbor. Our food was good more like four stars but the staff was fantastic as the waitress and manager took care of a food issue that we had and more than accommodated us. This is definitely a top 10... read more

Had a nice dinner outside. Beautiful evening to be eating on the shore, watching the boats. The crab quesadilla was outstanding. We both had the haddock, which was ok, pretty bland, but probably what you would expect from haddock. The server was very nice.

We have stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn several times over the years and the Terrace Grille is one of our favorite places to eat because of the consistency good quality of food and service. There are several "pop up" restaurants in Bar Harbor that look great but aren't as good as they look. When you are on vacation, the... More

This is our favorite place to eat in Bar Harbor. The outside seating area is right on the water so that you can see all the boats coming and going. It is just so pleasant. The food is excellent with a varied menu. On our last visit we had family with us. My nephew, from the deep south, had his... More

Awesome location, attentive waitstaff and great food. Probably not a better place to have dinner in Bar Harbor on a summer night with the views of the waterfront. Seafood offerings were very fresh and well-prepared.

We had dinner at the Terrace Grille on a warm sunny evening. It is an informal place with an incomparable view. The round tables are right next to the water with a strategically placed hedge to give you privacy from those walking the waterfront trail just below the dinning area. The wine list was excellent and the food was very... More

This is for the Oasis Room at the BH Inn -- not the Terrace Grill. Sitting on the verandah with a glass of wine is the perfect place in BH to watch the sun set. There are only 3 sets of tables and two chairs each. The service is professional (attached to the BH Inn restaurant) and the wine by... More
