“Good sandwiches, okay service, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

The northern atmosphere at this breakfast/ lunch restaurant is a good place to stop for lunch if you find yourself in Southwest harbor. I ordered the tuna melt with steak fries and slaw. A hearty sandwich and good fries but service was slow. Not memorable but a good lunch for an average price. The burgers also seemed to be good and big as well. The service was slow and nobody else was even there. Good lunch, recommend the tuna melt and fries. Really the only restaurant in Southwest Harbor.

“Breakfast & Lunch Neighborhood Restaurant”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Sea Biscuits is an eatery frequented by locals, diner style, that is open for breakfast and lunch. We stopped for lunch while touring Mt. Desert Island. Although the lunch menu has many options, breakfast menu appears far stronger. We both had a side salads, my wife had chowder and I had a tuna salad sandwich. Both were satisfying, but neither were distinguishing.

“Closed Early”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We tried to eat lunch here. The sign said it was open until 1:30, but when we pulled up at 1:15 they flipped the sign and shut the doors, even though the restaurant was full of guests. Other people who pulled in when we did were also ticked off. Not cool.
