We had been to the Log Cabin Restaurant once before in 2013 and our experience was a very favorable one. So upon our return to Bar Harbor (2016) for a weeks vacation, we had dinner our first night at the Log Cabin. As is our custom we eat at the bar. Our bartender was a very personable lady who served... More

The food was good but we waited about ten minutes to get seated because the hostess did not seem to know where she wanted to seat our party of six. The waitress was nice but getting the food and the check took a long time. Our plates were cleared and three people used the restroom before the waitress noticed we... More

The service was better than the food. Our waitress was a total sweetheart and we were served super quick. The food was diner food at best unfortunately not impressed and did not go back for seconds.

I enjoyed by breakfast of a ham and cheese omelet; it was tasty and more than enough for one person. The blueberry muffin was homemade, warm and delicious! The waiter was nice and friendly. The inside was dark and stuffy though, and I was glad to be back outside.

My husband got the fried seafood platter with scallops, clams, shrimp and haddock. It was supposed to come with fries but we had to ask the waitress for them. The seafood was not cooked thoroughly so my husband asked for something else. The waitress was very apologetic and got my husband something else quickly.

We visit at least once a summer. Our last visit was "interesting." Hostess at the door was a little distracted, seemed irritated, but our server was very warm and friendly, even though she had several other tables. Drinks were very slow coming out, and so was the food. Food was very good. One of us ordered the Crab meat Salad.... More

While in Bar Harbor for the week of July 16,2016. We ate at The Log Cabin Restaurant for dinner on 7/17. The service was great, the meals were served in a very timely manner, and the prices were competitive for that area. Our waitress knew the menu and was very helpful. We enjoyed it so much we then tried them... More

We were able to walk to this restaurant from our campground. Large parking lot located a couple of miles from downtown Bar Harbor. It is a log cabin. The restaurant is partitioned so there is less noise and a little more privacy. We had the lobster dinner. The same dinner here was a couple of dollars cheaper than in town.... More

The Log Cabin Restaurant is a wonderful family owned Seafood & Steak restaurant that has been in continuous operation since 1984. The original owners who built the restaurant are now back and running the family operation. Great for families and large groups. Our dining rooms offer a very comfortable Maine experience with a classic Maine décor. We also have an absolutely wonderful Country Store filled with products made in Maine and New England. We hope you come to visit and dine with us. Greetings from the entire Hansen Family!
