Had another fabulous meal at THB last night. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They somehow even make the cocktails taste better. Friends from out of town always say it's their favorite place so we went their first night in town. Before we left,...More

I really get why Town Hill is rated one of the top restaurants on MDI, and really don't get the few bad reviews. They're the complete opposite experience that we ever have. Town Hill is the highlight of every trip to MDI and Bar Harbor....More
