The lobster that I had was not really fresh, unfortunately. The rest of the meal was excellent, nice ambiance, and service was quite good.

We missed Maggie's lobster crepes, but we had a very tasty scallop dish and a very pleasant time. The service was good and the atmosphere at least as good as we remembered at Maggie's the restaurant that used to be in the same location.

I debated giving Fathom's a 5, and it might deserve it. My wife had the chateaubriand, while I had a venison chop. Both were topnotch with broiled blueberries on the chop and both plates with crispy vegetables. The bread and banana butter wre excellent as was the service. Too full for dessert.

The gnocci with lobster was delicious, but unfortunately a noisy group of people in the table near us spoiled our experience. It was my husband's birthday and we couldn't even talk over their yelling.

First time to Bar Harbor and craving a quiet evening of fabulous food, friendly service, relaxed environment, and a nice bottle of wine... without an over-the-top 10 page menu or overpriced entrees. Fathom delivered. My husband and I are debating, and agreeing, this may be one of the best meals of the year.
