We were there the middle of October, a lot of the restaurants were closing for the season. When we arrived the line was long but the wait was short. They had very good service and the food was very good. My husband had the lobster and I had the salmon. Both were very good. The staff was very pleasant and... More

This was one of the best dinners we had during our ten days in Maine/ NE Canada. Even though they were very busy, and we didn't have reservations, we were seated immediately, after a quick walk outside to access the lower level dining room. My husband had lobster stew which was thick and creamy and full of lobster,followed by an... More

This restaurant is about 4 km from downtown Bar Harbour, located right at waterside and the scenery is wonderful. The evening of our visit it was a very busy place. Service was courteous, friendly, fast and efficient. Our meals were flavourful, nicely portioned well prepared and presented, and prices were quite reasonable. It came recommended to us by the hotel... More

This restaurant is extremely popular with locals and tourists alike, as the lines testify. It is right on the water, and the view from the lower dining room is wonderful. Since it was our next to last day in Maine, and we hadn't had any lobster yet, my husband and I got the early bird lobster special. It was fun... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the people at our hotel and it was one of the best meals we had on our whole trip. It was our last night in Maine and I wanted lobster. We both had the boiled lobster and it turned out to be a great choice. The price is quite reasonable, the service is... More

This place was near our Inn and took reservations. The location is beautiful and the service is friendly and very efficient. But the food is excellent- so good we ate there twice. I had the fresh haddock each time and my husband had the seafood medley. All were delicious. If we ever make it to Maine again, we will make... More

We noticed the Chart Room while driving back and forth from our motel to Acadia National Park, and the parking lot was always full- a good sign. It's on the outskirts of Bar Harbor. We enjoyed the table linens, fresh flowers and candlelight, even though we were wearing hiking clothes. There is also outdoor dining available. Every table has a... More

Had two good meals here. Had lunch one day and went back the next day for dinner. Good portions and reasonable cost. Great chowder and especially good on a cold dreary day. We also really enjoyed the blueberry pie.

We had dinner at the Chart Room, and whilst the food was tasty enough, I wouldn't rave about it - servings were on the small side for the dollars paid, in particular the Atlantic salmon which my wife had ordered. On the beveridge side, wine I believe was a bit overpriced, and the choice of beers and wines limited, probably... More
