My wife and I at here a few days ago, and I have to say we were both very impressed with everything. First thing you notice is the beautiful view. Set out on the lawn, overlooking the water, "Bubbles", and other mountains, this is the type of restaurant that you get upset if the service is too fast. You WANT your dinner to take a while to come out, it's just so peaceful and relaxing.
We really didn't know what to expect here in terms of quality, but the food was very good. They started us off with popovers, which were great, with a nice homemade strawberry jam. My seafood stew was packed with potatos and seafood, heaping spoonfulls in every bite.
For our entrees, we had crab cakes, and boiled lobster. Both were excellent, MUCH better than we were expecting. Having had lobster from Wiscasset to Lubec, this was one of my favorites.
It was very busy when we arrived, and we figured it would be quite a while before we had a seat. After you sign in, you get a vibrating pager that alerts you when you are ready. We went upstairs into the shop, and before we were finished in the shop the pager was beeping, less than 10 minutes from the time we got it. There are quite a few tables available, so even if it's busy, ask how long the wait is because it may be alot shorter than you think, and it's well worth the wait even if it's not.
Pricing was a few dollars higher than other local restaurants, but show me another local restaurant that has a view like this, and with the quality of the food we received, we didn't care what the price was. Top notch, and this is a definite stop for us next time we go to Acadia.
