“Nice dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Neat place. Big menu. Very nice staff. Loved the call ahead seating and they text you when the table is ready so you can shop while you wait in the town. Burger was good.

“Just Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Our first visit to Side Street (we've lived here a couple of years) and I wish I could say better, but it was just average for 3 out of 5 of us. The pulled pork and the Mac & Cheese was good. The Black Bean Patty fell apart but tasted o.k. The nightly special of mussels was very "sandy", we told our waitress that whoever prepped them might want to take more time rinsing them. The fish (haddock) sandwich was o.k. but the fish was meager at best. Meals served with a 1/4 pickle spear? Really? How but cutting loose with at least 1/2 for $11. Sweet potato chips looked like the bottom of the bag, mostly little broken up pieces. Best part of the sandwiches, were the fresh rolls they were served on. Service was good, it's not somewhere we'll go back to or recommend.

“Well done!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

the best food in Bar Harbor! We ate there twice. Grilled avocado, mac and cheese the best! Outside seating in limited but fun watching people along the side street. A block off the beaten path, but well worth some extra steps.

“Droolworthy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Side Street is a must have when visiting Bar Harbor. Great drink selection, friendly staff, wonderful atmosphere, great for everything from intimate dates to outings with good friends. Probably best place in town if you are looking for variety in a restaurant. Alot of places in BH serve the same type of food but side street definitely gives you options. Love it here.

“The best in Bar Harbor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Three words: PULLED PORK SANDWICH!!! So yummy. The ambiance here is incredible. It's always busy so make sure you have something planned before you go out to eat because there are usually long wait times. :)
