We've been to Paddy's on our first evening at Bar Harbor. It was already booked out, when we arrived. The staff at the entrance gave us an alarm device, which will ring you if space is available. So we spent our waiting time by walking around. After 15 minutes we got a place outside and enjoyed a beer with burger... More

Came here for dinner on my family's first night in BH. Very happy to find a family friendly restaurant in town that isn't just lobster! Awesome food (oh goodness the bread pudding is divine!) quick and frirndly service but the best part of the evening was the atmosphere with the amazing Irish band. Could have sat there all night listening... More

Was craving a fish sandwich and stopped in here. What a great decision. One of the best fish sandwiches I have ever eaten). Service was good and the view was great (harbor view - sunny day!).

This pub had a great selection of varied menu items, great drinks and a great Irish band who also played contemporary music. It was fairly expensive and the wait was really long. You had to line up on the sidewalk and they were not taking names. Not fun in the rain!

We enjoyed our evening at Paddy's. There was a great Irish band. We were able to sit outside, overlooking the harbor, enjoy the music and we liked our food a lot. My boyfriend got a burger and I got the lobster salad. Both were delicious.

At first glance this looked like an upscale Irish pub. The view and location is fantastic. As a single dinner for a late lunch (4 pmish) I asked for an outside table in the shade. There were several but I was told they were reserved. However the whole time I was there they remained empty - I definitely felt they... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. My husband had the onion soup which was awesome. My kids had the lobster rolls which we felt were the best we had in Bar Harbor. I had the steak which was delicious. Service was prompt. The environment was great with lots of inside and outdoor seating. There was no band there the night we... More

My family had a wonderful meal at Paddy's last week. We all had burgers and fries with the exception of my mother who had soup. It was all really good! The service was great as well. Can't wait to go back!

Great Irish band and beautiful location across from harbor - also nicely decorated and friendly service. The beer was cold but so was the "lobster bisque" - which had very little lobster in it! We sent it back and asked that it come back HOT - the result was warm - the server asked if I wanted it warmed further... More
