We dined here with another couple while vacationing in Maine. We had a lobster dinner served on the terrace area of the Bar Harbor Inn which overlooks scenic Frenchmans Bay. The lobster bake started with a cup of their amazing clam chowder. Next came steamed mussels and clams which were also fresh and tasty. The lobster was served with boiled... More

We went for dinner so we could watch the sunset. View was great -- expansive view over the harbor. Our waiter was very friendly but seemed inexperienced. Service was on the slow side and he gave us incorrect info when we asked about some of the dishes on the menu. Food was okay, but nothing special. We had the steak... More

Amazingly good food and service. The lobster pot dinner exceeded my expectations. I've been eating lobster everyday in Maine and this 1 was perfect. Soft shell lobster cooked to perfection. There is a fine baker working here. The blueberry corn muffin was moist and tender, with just enough crunch from the cornmeal. But the blueberry pie was the best I've... More

Location, location, location. The only advice would be for them to invest in some gas heaters. Service and food were great.

Perfect place to stop when your in Bar Harbor. Seating outside under the yellow umbrellas taking in the view, just perfect! The Lobster bisque was fabulous. Also had the spinach salad with salmon with Bloody Mary! Great lunch in a perfect setting!

My husband and I took our grandson to Bar Harbor in late June and had reservations inside at the Bar Harbor Inn for dinner. Since it was so beautiful outside we decided to cancel and go outside to the Terrace and we are so glad we did! The food was great, view was stunning and atmosphere was very relaxed and... More

My mother, sister and I went here for dinner. It was the perfect place to sit by the water and watch the sunset. The food is moderately priced and very good! The waitstaff were very attentive.

We loved this restaurant. Great view of harbor and so nice to sit on lawn on a good night. The service was great. Our waitress Becca was more than willing to take our picture infront is the view. Great sangria and blueberry muffins! Good food as well.

My friend saw this early one morning while running the shore path and decided we had to go. We tried to make reservations that morning for that evening. To make reservations you call the hotel and they transfer you. The first person we spoke with was hard to understand, but was quick to pass us onto someone in the restaurant... More
