“Love this place..”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a wonderful place to visit with kids. The staff was so friendly with our son and made us feel like friends. We went once for dinner and once for ice cream . The portion sizes are large and the food is no frills american style fare. I had a lobster roll, my husband had a cheeseburger and my son got the grilled cheese for under 30 bucks. The Food was good but the real star of the show here is the staff, just really great friendly people enjoying what they do! Highly recommend!

“Anniversary trip to Acadia National Park”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Ralph and Francis have the most welcoming place in Southwest Harbor! The food they make is all homemade and delicious! We love coming there each time we visit Acadia National Park. The remarkable thing is that they remember us even if it is two years since our last visit there.

“Blueberry heaven”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

All I have to say is don't you dare miss out on the blueberry pie. You'll live to regret it. Thick, lucious, amazing crust.

“Welcoming and inviting”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Rolling through Southwest Harbor, the Quietside Cafe looked the most inviting for a quick lunch. My husband and I both ordered a bowl of soup...and got much more than "something to tide us over." The friendliness of the staff and other patrons was heart-warming. I felt we got to know the owners' family by the pictures on the wall and answers to a couple brief questions. The fish chowder was excellent! Mrs "Quietside" took time to share her technique for making the chowder, which was a special treat for my husband who enjoys cooking. If you want to feel at home in the busy-ness of vacationers, stop at the Quietside Cafe. You won't be disappointed. Try the blueberry or apple pie, too. Both are delicious.

“Delish ice cream & good place to cool your heels.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

After a day of hiking, this is a great place to relax & enjoy a cone. The ice cream is great, lots of yummy flavors, & the young people who work there are super nice.
