Review of Ruth & Wimpy's

Ruth & Wimpy's
Ranked #4 of 13 Restaurants in Hancock
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Description: A great rusticated Maine restaurant where you can get a reasonably priced lobstah dinner and the best homemade pie anywhere. The personnel are always great and Wimpy is a neat guy. I love it there. No trip to Bar Harbor is complete without a stop at Ruth & Wimpy's (and I haven't got a dime in this).

I just love the ambiance and service at this no nonsense eatery. Great food, reasonable prices and terrific people. Love the Philly Cheese Steaks...

The service was slow, the lobster poor, the soggy corn inedible, don't touch anything that calls itself a wing, it was never attached to any bird. Not for the faint of heart. A real tourist trap.

If you are visiting the Bar Harbor area, I suggest you go to this little known restaurant. The Lobster and sides were outstanding at a very low price. It is a little off the beaten path but well worth the trip.

A Maine favorite - for locals and visitors. Consistently great food. We ate there in June 2010 also. All American Pie is a great dessert. The seafood is well prepared. Just a simple diner-ish restaurant. Great people work there.
