Food was good. Service was nice and they warned us they would be slow. We just didn't think they could be that slow. We ordered an appetizer and they were very slow so they actually comp it. We ordered kids grilled cheese (good), kids shrimp (fantastic, very fresh and amazing horseradish cocktail sauce), seafood chowder (tasty but a little light... More

Our party of four ordered four sandwiches, two haddock, one veggie, and one crabmeat. All come with potato chips. We had to wait to receive menus because the 8 top next to us had them all. (might be a good idea to print some more copies ...this is for lunch service!) After ordering we waited, waited, waited some more, kept... More

Visited here for lunch. Did not stay in the Inn so i don't have an opinion about the overnight accommodations. However the lunch experience was good food SLOOOOOW service. Other guests were getting up to leave not having been waited on. My pesto burger was very good.

If your looking for bling you won't find it here, but if your looking for a relaxing comfortable stay then this is the place, and the reason we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Located away from the hustle and bustle of the multitude of tourists in Bar Harbor, with easy access to Acadia National Park and a small nice beach in... More

Stopped by for lunch and were waited on promptly by the friendly server. I ordered a bowl of seafood chowder and my husband went with the crabmelt special. The chowder was a decent size bowl, which was full of shrimp, scallops, lobster and potatoes. It had a very good flavor and filled me up, I was quite happy with it.... More

The Inn was very nice. We had a room with two bedrooms with Queen Size beds. I was with my daughter and went to visit my brother and his wife. The rooms were very roomy. Also, there was a small kitchenette in one of the rooms. There was a TV and wifi. It was in a very good location for... More

I can say without reserve that this was the worst restaurant experience of my life (I am 61). I can't comment on the food since we never got it. We waited one hour and never received our lunch. Others who arrived between 15 and 45 minutes after us received their chowders and lobster rolls (which we had ordered) before us.... More

My wife and spent the Labor Day Weekend in the area and we had lunch here on Sunday. We had spent the morning in Acadia National Park and found the Lighthouse Restaurant for lunch. The food was very good. Service was excellent. A nice casual meal that was reasonably priced.

Stopped in for dinner on a foggy Wednesday night. The restaurant was pretty empty but the menu looked appealing. I had broiled scallops which were absolutely perfect. Not fancy, not sauced, just cooked to perfection. Best I have ever had. The chef obviously gets very fresh seafood and knows how to prepare it. Also had the broiled haddock - also... More

This looks like a dive but the staff was great and the food seafood plater was awesome. Childs burger was juicy and my crabmeat salad was filling and tasty. We walked away full without breaking the bank.
