This was our favorite restaurant that we tried in bar harbor. The cocktails were unique and very tasty! My husband and I loved the shishito pepper appetizer and the scallops.

Friendly wait staff who easily share their day with you. Excellent food - huge portions - many vegetarian options. If you are by yourself, they make you feel at home.

We ate there last summer and again this summer, and were very satisfied with both visits. It's an out-of-the-way spot, easy to overlook. Not crowded either time. If you're in the Village Green (aka bus depot), look for the yellow and white striped umbrellas! You...More

Had a nice meal here. Service was slowish mostly because we arrived just as they were transitioning to the dinner menu. They have mostly small plates. I think there were only two entrees that evening. The mussels were nicely done in a tomato broth and...More
