I had a lunch and dinner here. Fish and chips for lunch: delicious. The Downeast Lobster dinner was awesome. I highly recommend this restaurant. You can't beat the price and the servings were very generous. Our waitress was excellent.

We stopped by as a cruise stop and after consulting Trip Advisor we stopped in here. Lobster Sauté was delicious and without the work! Full lobster special was $20 and that includes 2 sides. Wife had full belly fried clams and was very happy. Maybe a twenty minute wait but bar in the back to sit at. The host will... More

Great lobster lunch with clam chowder, cole slaw, fries and yummy blueberry pie for dessert. Priced well. Our server even took our lobster out of the shell for us. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was delicious, service was good and the early bird specials were a good deal. My party had the lobster roll and the salmon. Both were cooked to near perfection. Neither one was overcooked. It got very crowded towards the end of the early bird special; therefore, I suggest you dine early. I would definitely come here again when... More

We were recently back in Bar Harbor after several years and went to this place, our favorite restaurant from past visits. It was still so good! Both the food and the service were great, and like other reviews mentioned, the prices were reasonable. We got there late afternoon and didn't have a wait, however, as we were leaving (around 6...

We ordered our lobster rolls and sandwiches to go since we wanted to have a picnic dinner while watching sunset at Cadilac Mountain. I wished we had time to stay at this restaurant for dinner. From the host to the bar tender who took our order, we felt welcomed and comfortable being here even though we were ordering take out.... More

Thoughtful menu, excellent quality and professionally managed. We called ahead and were promptly seated in a room that quickly filled up. Angela took care of us throughout and could not have been friendlier. We split an appetizer of fried calamari (very good) while trying some of those dinner rolls (wow and do make sure to get some!). Entrees were the... More

We came for lunch and the food and service was good. I got one of the lunch specials, cafe delight which had lobster meat and tiny shrimp over pasta with a white cheesy sauce and it was excellent. They were a little busy and possibly understaffed, but our waitress did a great job and we didn't have to wait too... More

This place is awesome. Great food for a great price. Tried the lobster and had their clam chowder. After dinner they served their homemade blueberry pie with ice cream. Very reasonable and delicious. We would go back next time we are in town.
