“Antidote to lobster.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

This place is a real find (and it's best you have a map to do so or you may miss it). It doesn't try and hide what it is, you can figure it out quickly enough.

If you like some of the best beer in the area, with a meat platter to really hit the spot after too many lobsters, this is a perfect choice.

This is casual, informal dining - hearty food, no fuss service. Perfect.

“Great Barbecue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Awesome food!! Try the sampler! Super tender ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and smoky sausage. Our waitress, Gabriella, was the sweetest young lady, with a delightful Romanian accent. It's a must!

“Surprisingly good pork ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We are here on the last day of their service before they were closed for the season. The food are cheap compare to other restaurants in Bar Harbor.
The pork ribs is really delicious and juicy. The pulled pork is so so. We also tried their best seller beer, "Bar Harbor blueberry ale" and it's really good.

“great smoked pork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is a good resturant if you like smoked meats. They mostly sell pork, but you can get chicken too. A sandwich and a side is great for lunch or you can get all you can eat. The resturant is right next to the Alantic Brewing Company so you can get any of the beers it sells with your meal or you can get homemade root beer or blueberry soda the Brewing company sells. The food is execllent. There is barbeque sauce on the tables along with bottles of hot sauce for your meat. We always leave there knowing we'll come back for more before our vacation is over.

“Top Notch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Best service and food on the island...if your not looking for seafood! Top it off with an Atlantic Brewing Company beer and you have found a little piece of heaven! Enjoy!
