“Great Helpful Wait Staff...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This small "seasonal" restaurant is located on "Frenchman's Bay" and has a great scenic view. One could not help but notice that the friendly wait staff was most helpful with the" first time lobster consumer." Choose from the house specialities! The "made on site" blueberry pie was excellent. I feel that this Bar Harbor Restaurant deserves a higher rating that it has at this point in time.

The service was excellent and fast.

“I'd Go Back and Surprised It's Not Higher Rated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Considered my food quite good and only sorry its a full day away. I really would go back just to eat if it was closer. I'd try a half-dozen other things I passed over. Would recommend dinner over lunch, and in particular the dinner house specialties instead of the broader menu.

“Great Service Good Foot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We ate at the Chart Room on a recommendation from our hotel. We had the lazy man lobster and fixins. Our meal was great. Good service. You have to try the blueberry pie. Probably the best I've had. It was a special meal for my birthday, Glad we tried it! You will be glad too.

“Average Fare in a Lovely Setting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The lobster is great, don"t get me wrong, but the other fish dishes are too busy with flavors and extra sauces. The pasta dishes tend to swim in oil, and overall this is a dated restaurant in presentation and style.
