We stopped by for lunch & thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is very open feeling & even sitting inside felt as though we were eating al fresco. Our meal was delicious. My husband had the broiled salmon with coleslaw & a baked potato, all of which were wonderful. I had a linguine with mushrooms, baby shrimp, lobster & cheese... More

The menu was varied and the food was very good; prices were reasonable for a popular resort area. We were a large group (10 in all) and the restaurant was able to accommodate us.

Lobster bisque, I have no idea what was served! The lobster was very good. And the pie as well. Skip everything else! We had the fried seafood sampler, I guess looking at shrimp on the menu, I was expecting prawns. Onion rings, we're like skimpy rubber bands. The batter was horrible.

We found this place by accident be first night we arrived in Bar Harbour and returned again and again! The service was friendly and efficient, the food delicious and the prices reasonable. The decor was nice too, and the location hard to beat! A must visit in Bar Harbour!

Our return visit to West St Cafe was just as good as the first time we visited. In our opinion, they serve the best lobster rolls in Bar Harbor! The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is bright and cheerful.

We at the West Street twice and had great food and service both times. They have early bird specials which gives about a $2 discount on certain items before 6. Especially recommend the Down-Easter (lobster bake) and Fried Seafood platter.

While visiting Bar Harbor we looked for a restaurant that met the needs our three vacationing family members. After reviewing several on-line menus we decided to visit the West Street Café for dinner and were pleased that we did. As Bar Harbor restaurants can sometimes be quite crowded we expected that we might have to wait to get a table.... More
