Get here early because long lines form. We ordered the lobster rolls, and the salad was perfect but the roll was toasted to a point where it just seemed like stale bread. Generous serving with tasty beer batter style fries. Decent beers if limited selection.

Thanks for taking the time. Limited selection of beers reflective of limited space We bake our rolls fresh daily, i will advise the kitchen to toast longer. We look forward to your next visit.

We just happened upon this place as we were visiting and didn’t really know much about the area. The lobster and very reasonably priced and it was delicious! Also a very nice view of the harbor. Good service.

It's easy to drive right by this restaurant -- but don't! Outstanding view of the harbor area -- and excellent seafood. Generous servings, great service, and delicious food and drink.

We were here on a Wednesday night. The staff were friendly and quick, promising us great food. The clam chowder was some of the worst we've had anywhere. It was water thin with no clams or potatoes in it. It was spiced heavily with something...More

Situated at the end of the harbor, The Upper Deck offers a magnificent view of Southwest Harbor. When the weather is nice, one can sit outside on the deck and enjoy the scenery. Late afternoon light is divine. Food is good and tasty. Drink selection...More

Cold beer, nice drinks, great service and awesome atmosphere on the deck with family! Enjoyed the visit here after a great day in the Acadia national park. Lobster looked good but didn’t taste it.
