Stopped in after hiking in Acadia for lunch and a beer. Nice sitting out on the patio. Had their fried Haddock sandwich with tater tots and sweet Thai chili rings. Both were delicious. Fried fish was not greasy—the primary reason I shy away from fish...More

On A recent visit to Acadia National Park we stayed in Bar Harbor and had a late dinner at this place. It is mostly a sports bar - they had both the Red Sox and Patriots games on. The food was decent and service was...More

Fun atmosphere, but the wings were not good. Can't screw up beer and cider. Wouldn't recommend. We went there because there was no line, that says it all.

The cheese curds were awesome...service was fabulous. Cilantro chicken was tasty as was the hanger steak. We really enjoyed our relaxing dinner. We’ll be back!

We arrived in Bar Harbor late due to a travel delay. The Dog and Pony Tavern was one of the only places open. The food was very good and the service was as well! Definitely would visit again

What used to be a great meeting spot seems to have changed. Service is complacent and food is sysco quality frozen food. Bar Harbor needs to honor clients with fresh food.

No frills, basic good food and drink with value prices and great service. Inside and outside seating. Not much of a view but not a tourist spot with up charges because of that.

The staff went out of its way to make me feel welcome. In the winter, it had a very "locals only" feel to it, but looks can be deceiving. The bartender was warm and friendly. The cook came out to check on my meal -...More

Stopped in just after opening for a quick lunch after morning hike. Greeted with friendly staff, waited on quickly, and food was delivered accurately and pretty fast. Food was typical pub far, but well worth stopping in. Would like to go back later this summer....More

Nice little place off the main strip. Food was good and the drinks cold. Nice place to sit outside and get a bite and drink. Kids had fun playing the darts and the ring game. Food came out quick.

The Dog and Pony Tavern is a unique dining and drinking spot that is hidden in a cluster of trees off the beaten path in Bar Harbor. Those who are adventurous enough to find it will enjoy cheap but delicious cocktails and meals in the "treehouse" beer garden, outdoor gazebo bar, or may find themselves at the indoor dining area watching the day's sports game. D 'n P (as the locals call it, short for Dog and Pony) opens at 11:00 am for lunch and drinks and stays open until 1 am! Food is served until 12:00am, but after the tavern closes at 1 am in the summer, a take out window opens, and food is available from 1am 'till approximately 2am. It's a great peaceful place to eat and drink during the day and a happening night spot after the sun sets. In 2010, Dog and Pony was voted #1 Patio Dining and #1 Night Spot! Locally owned and operated, the DnP offers a unique Bar Harbor experience you can't find anywhere else!
