I have to completely disagree with an earlier reviewer - fried food is not a necessity in an English pub but good beer is! We found the pub part way through our stay in Bar Harbor and were lucky enough to coincide with some live music. We sat at the bar and ate an excellent meal - the chef was rushed off his feet, but our meals were both first rate. We found both the owner and barmaid to be very friendly - as were other guests. My only criticism was the lack of cider (hard cider, that is). I was assured that this omission would be rectified during the next season! We had one of the most enjoyable evenings of our month long holiday in the USA in this bar and we would definitely recommend to the visitor to Bar Harbor.
