Most restaurants in this general area are quite touristy. This one may be as well but the high level of service provided by the waitstaff as well as the food being prepared exactly as requested enabled my wife and I to have an enjoyable dining experience. As we are both spoiled and accustomed to eating at higher end restaurants we... More

Our family of six had just come off a long hike damp from a good amount of rain. Where we thought we were going was closed. We remembered always seeing lots of cars at Chart Room. So. Here we stopped. Great atmosphere - nostalgia. Friendly greeting & outstanding service. Beautiful view even on raining day. Our lunches were all good... More

Conveniently located, the Chart Room offers a great view of the bay. The food is superb. You are greeted upon arrival with courtesy! The service is wonderful. A great stop.

The waterfront view was great and the food was very good. They were pet friendly and let us have our dog with us as we dined outside. Half of our party had lobster and it was good. Shrimp and swordfish steak were the other entrees - both were good. The staff was very friendly and made the dinner enjoyable. I... More

Ordered their fried seafood platter, was soggy and tasted like it had been made a while back. Was disappointed I spent $30 on it!

Four of us had a very pleasant meal on the outside seating area. I had what I was told us their most popular dish: halibut with lobster sauce. I suggest asking for some additional sauce, as what I had was only just enough, that said, it was delicious. Service was fast and friendly. Highly recommend.

We arrived late in Bar Harbor after a delayed flight into Bangor and passed this restaurant on the way to the Acadia Inn where we were staying. It was about 8:30PM and their sign said they close at 9PM but they did not rush us out. Great Seafood menu, not just shellfish. Everything we ate and drank was excellent and... More

We arrived early and took advantage of the steamed lobster dinner, which was offered at a discount. Our waitress was very attentive and helped us figure out the lobster. The food was excellent and so was the view.

My husband and I along with another couple enjoyed a delicious meal there on Saturday night. We arrived early and got a great table with water view. Three of us chose the seafood medley and it was delicious.I had a baked potato with it might choose rice next time. Hubby had baked stuffed haddock and he said it was excellent!... More
