We ate at Blaze two nights during our five night stay in Bar Harbor. The pizza was great and everything is very reasonably priced. Mussels were also great and they have an extensive beer list.

"Excellent Concept, wonderful food and friendly service"

We live in Bangor and when we heard BLAZE was going to open in downtown Bangor we decided we needed to get down to Bar Harbor and try the newly opened Bar Harbor BLAZE. Well.....it was WONDERFUL, we've been back 4 times for lunch twice and dinner twice as well. We cannot wait to have BLAZE in downtown Bangor. The food is excellent, the service always friendly and for what you get the prices seem to be spot on. I was reading what a couple others wrote about the pricing and to be honest I just do not agree. You pay for what you get....and we have always been very satisfied with what we have gotten at BLAZE. Ate there last week as a matter of fact and my braised Rabbit and my husbands wood fired pizza were just wonderful and well worth the price. Cheers, PLEASE OPEN IN BANGOR SOON!!

Expensive for an average dining experience. Staff was almost irrespectful / arrogant, portions small and food good but not exceptional.

This restaurant pitches itself as an alternative to the many (very good !!) lobster and seafood places in Maine in that they "wood grill" the seafood. This is true, but to be honest the reason everyone else steams/boils it, is because fresh seafood tastes better that way!!.
We decided to try it for a change, it was okay ... but nothing special. Most things on the menu had no price,but market value. We accept that we should have checked the price, but having already eaten a similar menu in nearby restaurants we did not expect a great variation in price. We were shocked by the final check, even more so by the automatic 20% service charge (for 2 people). Something we have almost never seen anywhere in the USA. Unless you desperately want grilled seafood - AVOID.

I liked this restaurant for the bar, happy bartenders and great beer selection. Although not on tap I was able to get Lobster Ale (one of my favorites and hard to find when they push the local Bar Harbor Ales). Lobster Ale is from a Portland brewery.
