We had dinner at many restaurants on Mount Desert this summer, and particularly in Southwest Harbor, and Rogue had the best food. The staff was friendly and helpful. The menu was varied and interesting. We all ended up choosing the specials which did not disappoint.

We had a delightful meal here tonight. Beet and goat cheese salad was delicious. My scallop entree was perfectly prepared. Dainty poppy rolls were a perfect accent. Gracious service made for a perfect dining experience.

With all the great reviews, and the owner's experience running good restaurants, I expected a great meal with good service. I have to say that my entree (fish) was bland and the sauce did nothing to help it out. My wife was also disappointed with...More

The bar tender greeted us as we entered and we were seated immediately. After that all the service slowed way down but we had been forewarned it might be that way. We stayed with crispy eggplant tomato and cheese stacks and curry mussels both of...More
