As other reviews have noted, Town Hill Bistro has been closed this summer while they look for a new location. The owners have had and continue into the fall to have a small kitchen for take out and with some outdoor tables located next to the original Bistro. So as long as it isn't too cold to keep cooking, you... More

We have wanted to eat here for years. We drove around looking for it, pulled over and called the number. They answered under a different name, we apologized and said we were looking for the Town HIll Bistro. They are looking for a new location as they were apparently in the process of purchasing a larger place and gave up... More

We had the great pleasure of dining at this locally sustainable chef run restaurant called Town Hill Bistro. The staff is willing to accomodate for any special diet requests. It is the type of place they will go out of there way to make sure you gave the best dining experience imaginable. Did I mention reasonable. There pricing is spot... More

Town Hill Bistro is in the town of Town Hill, not Bar Harbor so don't think you can walk there. It is about a 15 minute ride through breathtaking scenery. Of course, we were there when the leaves were turning so it was beauty everywhere we looked. This is a small restaurant with about 10 tables. It is rustic and... More

The building it's in is small, but don't let that fool you. This place packs a lot of awesomeness in a small package. Do be warned, the size makes reservations essential. It is also located a little ways outside of town, but it is definitely worth the drive. The service is casual but solidly attentive and professional. Overall, the ambiance... More

Little did I know that this restaurant has one of the highest ratings in Bar Harbor when I made my reservations. I found the reservations when I stopped to ask directions. And it smelled wonderful and I was very attracted to the simple, but elegant atmosphere. Do make reservations. We dropped in one night and discovered that they had no... More

We always try to have dinner at Town Hill when we visit MDI. The people there are always so friendly, and the food is great. The decor is warm and pleasing--very relaxing. We shared a fantastic dessert!! It was a cocoa gingerbread with caramel sauce.

It's a 15-minute drive from downtown and occupies an old wooden house/store. Not very large (maybe a dozen tables inside a more outside) with a nice fireplace and down-home atmosphere. My wife had the fish special (cod) for the night and declared it the best fish dish she's ever had (and she's had plenty!) - thick, moist and perfectly seasoned.... More

Not quite what I expected. Service was average. Food average. Much better places to eat in the area.
