“Great lobster roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

One of the best lobster rolls ever! A "well-poured" Guinness, served by an true Irish waitress, completed a totally satisfying lunch at the tail end of the tourist season. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

“New and huuuuge!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

My wife and I were married at Bar Harbor in September, and many times found ourselves, along with our wedding guests, eating and drinking at Paddy's. Everything we tried was delicious and we cant wait til next summer to sit on the street and people watch! Great service and great drinks, too! A little pricey, but you get what you pay for, and, after all, it IS Bar Harbor!!

“Great Gaelic Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We sat in the bar area various times and at a table in the front room.

Over a few visits we ate/drank the following:

Drinks:
Blueberry Ale - refreshing crisp ale with crunchy blueberries in the glass
Guinness (on tap) - great pour with the right amount of head
Hard Cider - sharp juicy flavor with no aftertaste

Appetizers:
Beer battered onion rings - Great! Very crunchy with great dipping sauces
Cheese plate - Variety of cheeses with raisin toast was a nice break from heavy meals

Main Courses:
Steak salad with avocados - tender seasoned steak with crisp lettuce was a nice contrast
Wedge salad with bacon – more than enough bacon for one person with a light dressing

I would recommend Paddy’s to anyone. The bar area is not very large and fills up quickly. The bar area is great for pre dinner drinks and after dinner drinks. They are closing in November for the season and reopening next year.
