This place was horrible. The only thing that was good was the egg roll. The table next to us said the same thing. I only gave it one star because you can't move forward unless you pick something.

We come to Bar Harbor every year and always stop by China Joy for their pan fried chicken dumplings. Highly recommend!

Food was good and service was average. I would eat there again. Selection was what I expected but of course they had a whole lobster on the menu.

Started with the Egg Drop and Hot & Sour Soups. Both were very thick and gelatinous in character. The Egg Drop was very bland while the Hot & Sour had flavor but with the thick consistency was a turn off. The Orange Beef had little...More
