“Service with a smile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Having eaten at a posh restaurant in Portland, ME the day before this was a breath of fresh air. Nice food and service with a pleasant smile (Mary) - something sadly lacking from the Portland one!

Prices were reasonable and food was quick in coming.

Definately worth a visit if you are in Bar Harbor.

“Cute ambiance, great lobster roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Simple, nice decor makes the small place seem spacious. The staff was friendly. I was pleased to find the lobster roll was light on the mayo, and heavy on the lobster! It was very delicious, and we will definitely eat here again when visiting the area.

“Nothing fancy, but great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

We ate here on the first day of their 2014 season. Whole lobster, fries and slaw for lunch, yummy. The blueberry pie was very flaky.
No start-up problems for the staff. The hostess handled the large crowd like a pro. The waitress got the order right with a smile. The cook and front of house got the meal to us quickly, properly cooked and hot! We could not have asked for more.
Congratulations on having the staff in mid-season form on your first day of business
