“Wonderful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Since Acadia NP was pretty much closed thanks to our useless Congress we wandered in the area and stumbled on Northeast Harbor. While looking around we saw the Kimball Terrace Inn which houses the Watermark Restaurant and decided to have lunch. The lobster roll was wonderful, fresh and very tasty. They have a wide selection of beers. The staff was friendly and efficient. We sat outside on this unusually warm and bright early fall day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This was a lunch to remember.

“Wonderful surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We stopped here for lunch knowing nothing about it. I ordered the lobster roll and herb fries and my wife ordered the "Louie" salad. The herb fries were light, crispy, and delicious. The lobster roll was not the typical mini hot dog roll, but a large round roll similar to a Kaiser roll. I could not believe the amount of lobster on it. My wife's salad was fresh, crisp, and also loaded with shrimp and lobster. This was one of the best restaurants we have found in Maine.

“Nothing to drive from Bar Harbor for. Good, not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

My wife and I ate here last night in order to try to find a restaurant in Northeast Harbor I can recommend to my bar patrons in Bar Harbor and unfortunately this place fell a bit flat for me. The food was okay but lacked the specialness needed to ask people to drive 20 minutes to go eat at. The bread was unremarkable for a starter, the roasted cauliflower felt like it heated up, not roasted and the fries were good but I think they plated too many of them for a proper appetizer. My wife had the Ahi Tuna which was quite overcooked and I had the Chicken Pie which in other reviews sounded noteworthy but in reality it was not. If you are in the area anyways, it might be a good option to eat because the food wasnt that bad, just not as remarkable as I had hoped it would be. Needless to say, I am still on the lookout for a place in Northeast Harbor worth sending people to as a destination.

“Unfulfilled Expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Having read some glowing reviews of this place, I was expecting great things. NOt so much. The pizza was OK, not great. When Dewars was ordered, another scotch arrived and when a replacement was requested, it was handled with a scornful attitude. The spaghetti and meatballs were inedible, so that charge was removed.
The breakfast was not as promised in the hotel brochure. Two types of dry muffins, coffee, tea and a small yogurt were all that there was. Not worth the $5 charge.
