Yum!

Stayed a long weekend at the Robbins Motel down the street to hike in Acadia. Decided to treat myself to dinner after hiking. Had a steak and a beer. Very good. Recommended!

Well, the food is expensive, the atmosphere is okay, the portions are small. I was disappointed, for the prices I expected something more.

a few miles out of Bar Harbor and the Accadia National Park turnoff, this is a straighforward familly restaurant at the beach. Bustling, noisy but with friendly service. The lazy lobster is good, as was the steak. Nothing to complain about.

When in the Bar Harbor, Maine area, we make a point of having a dinner here. The meals arrived very quickly and we had excellent service and plentiful food. The restaurant overlooks the water. Parking is tight, and getting back out onto the main road can be problematic in an RV. Your meal may be pricey, but worth it.

We went to the Chart Room for dinner, it was my first time there but my friends had been there before. We were lucky to be seated very quickly because soon after we got there more people came and then there was a wait for the tables. The service was very good and so was the food. I had lobster...

This was not my first pick of where to eat dinner on a September Saturday night but I was glad I stopped in. My hotel had recommended this restaurant and when the two restaurants I wanted to eat at in Bar Harbor had a 90 minute wait I called the Chart Room and was told it would be about 15... More

We were at the Chart House in October, the day before it closed. One of had the Seafood Medley, the other had the hamburger. Both were good. The prices were reasonable. We arrived about 4:30pm so we had a table near (not next to) the window. The restaurant quickly filled and the service was slower than expected.

I'm sure other food would have been great but I am totally disappointed that they sell soft shelled lobster as it's just not very good!!

So, due to its location, the weather, and the insane number of people in Bar Harbor, we wound up eating here twice, very unusual for us. I have the tails the first night and the whole hard shell the next. My wife had the tails and the crusted Halibut. They were all very good, but not great. The wine list... More
